Hello, I have sold units in Paddington Square and never had a problem. This is one of the better developments in Mahwah.

Tiya, if you are still in the market for a unit. I have an extraordinary unit coming on the market around the end of the year / beginning of 2015. This unit is so private and the entrance and unit actually face the wooded area. Everything in the unit has been redone and is in outstanding shape.

Let me know if you have any questions or would like additional information.

Hello Jazmine,

If you are referring to Trulia and Zillow, a lot of the "pre-foreclosures" you see are not exactly for sale. What happens is when a homeowner has missed 3 or more payments, a lis pendens gets sent to them. A Lis Pendens is a notice that you have missed 3 payments and that you will be in default. It takes about 3 or 4 Lis Pendens and 3-5 years for the bank to actually foreclosure on the home. In that meanwhile, the homeowner has a chance to catch up on payments if they can. If the owner is selling and its short of what they owe the bank, that is considered a short sale. With a short sale, the bank is the third party approval since they will be taking a loss. I can view foreclosures and short sales in my system if you were interested in purchasing one.

You can reach me direct at 845-664-2144.

If you have anymore questions, please don't hesitate to call.

Thank you,

Well the 2 other offers finally presented themselves in writing... is likely what happened here. Sadly the agent who represented you probably was not offered the invitation to counter, as they likely settled on the higher offer and just left it at that. ... more

There is only a 10 day redemption period in NJ which means after 10 days if you can not come up with what the bank feels you owe them then the highest bidder at the auction (usually the bank) can take title.
Now, "will someone come knocking at your door any time soon after that?" is a big unknown, I have clients that were never even approached for as many as 24 months.
Yes if you have enough money to hire a lawyer, the lawyer can usually get the court to give you time but it is costly and for what, save the money and put it toward a deposit on a rental, hire a mover and move on.
