Manuel answered:
Stay away from Paterson..

Sometimes you can find a deal in Elmwood Park...

Fair Lawn is still pretty nice but expensive. about 300-400 more than elmwood park.

But you are taking about New Jersey, nothing really is affordable. we are 23% higher than any other state.

Saddle Brook is similar to Fair Lawn. Forget about Rochelle Park, Maywood, Paramus. Those are all neighboring towns but very expensive. For just average locations

Visit the Bogota Police Department. Fill out a Freedom of Information Act Application detailing what you are searching for. There may be a modest copying fee. The Police Department or the appropriate Department will provide you copies of pertinent information, which is in their files. ... more

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Martha answered:
Paramus is a large town of about 30,000 inhabitants so naturally, it has its share of break-ins like any other town. However, I find it to be a safe place to live. To find out the crime rate, contact the Paramus police department. I have been selling homes in the town for over 25 years, and have not heard any complaints from my buyers.

Io Duncan answered:
No. The address itself is in a very low crime area. However, nearby areas are higher crime. That is a result of being so near Route 17. Keep in mind that statistics can be misleading, depending on who is doing the reporting, there could be some bias in the reporting. Some people won't call the police as quickly as others, some call the police at the drop of a hat. If you think East Rutherford is bad, look at the red swamping a highly regarded community like Lyndhurst! ... more

Never heard of using drip lines. If you have a roof that over hangs the walls that would add a lot of sq footage of just air. Here we measure the outside of the building itself and subtract any area inside that is unfinished and unheated, like a garage. ... more

Nancy Price answered:
all the comments that have been made so far basically refer the problem to the city officials who will take action - the same thing happened to the house next door where I live and they eventually had to cut the grass etc - if the owner wants to sell I have people who would be interested in this type of property so I would recommend the owner call me - Nancy Price, Re/Max Property Center, Paramus, 201-261-8111 ext 307 ... more

Maria FORSBERG-VILLON answered:
My office is on Hudson Street near Washington Ave. I have been here since 2001 and there has only been one incident as far as I remeber that took place last summer in the corner of Hudson and Jackson Ave. of course there are statistics and things happen that I do not know about, but usually my office opens around 9: am and some agents work until 9:pm and we have all felt safe. I suggest you drive around the area of the house you are looking into purchasing to see what is going on in the weekends and evenings when it is nice out. ... more
