David, this isn't the humor section of the forum. I think you posted in the wrong area.

Jobs are growing and all signs are pointing to the fact that by the end of the year more Americans will have health care than ever, tackling the instability related to sudden financial loss due to illness, and the inherent loan defaults and foreclosure/short sale rates that result from that. The only reason the economy is still not accelerating at a good rate is the recent blows to it through sequestration, and the government shut down and its implications. The horse is trying to get up, but keeps being whipped down.

It's rather funny that you characterize the appreciation of the real estate market as a negative, when in fact it is a sign of economic growth and prosperity. In general, not withstanding the importance of affordable living, rising real estate values is a good thing, not a bad. And that, my friend, is a capitalist point of view, not a socialist one.

One point however, if interest rates do eventually go up, as they inevitably will, the prices in the real estate market will have to fall as a result, not appreciate further. When this happens, it will be the time at which financial liquidity will bring in fortunes, or to put it bluntly rich people will get richer. Buyers who have to take a loan, as they do not have sufficient cash at hand, will have harder time affording the properties on the market. This drives prices down somewhat due to the law of supply and demand, but cash buyers still have a huge advantage over those who need mortgage, so they can sweep the market picking up all the properties for a fraction of their actual market value.

Hi Hany,

This rental is offered through an agency, which means that you would need to pay double rent for that month, even if owner would agree. One monthly rent for the rent, and one for the broker's fee. That is aside from the security deposit, which you would receive back when leaving.

Let me know if you would consider paying $1,600 for a month's rent, and if you do I'll talk with the listing office and try to arrange it.

I'm assuming the property in question is listed for sale via a broker,and not a F.S.B.O. If it listed for sale by a broker,most likely or not,the listing agent did h s or her job and showed the owner comparable sales,and the price is based on similarly priced properties in the same neighborhood or general location.

To negotiate price,you have to discuss this particular property,not an overall average involving hundreds of properties. You can ask your agent to get that have sold in the last 6 months most similar to this one. One agent represents the seller,and another agent represents your interests as the buyer.
They will negotiate back and if you put in a ,written, non-verbal offer in contract form. Negotiation without a contract to purchase, and proof of funds,or a bank pre-qualification letter is pointless.

If the seller is not in trouble,they will not short-sale the house to you. If they are financially in trouble,than the price they paid 5 years ago doesn't matter,and it's today's fair market value that is the "new" price. At which point,they would need to get their lender to release the lien for less than the amount owned. Talk to your agent. He will educate you further. Hope this general advise helps.

I am a strong advocate for bayonne as being a great place to purchase property. It has ton of things going for it such as wonderful school systems, public transportation, proximity to NY and much much more. Bayonne also has a strong rental market which makes it an Idea place to purchase a MF investment property.

I will be purchasing a 4-6 family in Bayonne shortly and do not have a doubt in my mind its the right place and for that matter time to buy!

Best of luck in you decision and feel free to contact me for more information regarding Bayonne Real estate.
