The question is subjective and why entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you, therefore research on your own and take the time to visit more than once. A good place should be dictated and defined by personal preferences, budgets, wants, needs, lifestyle, etc. ... more

Hi Grishma
The easiest way to commute from Carteret to Brooklyn would be to take the GS Parkway or NJ Turnpike to the Outer Bridge Crossing or Gothals Bridge which will take you through Staten Island & just follow the signs for the Verrazano Bridge which will take you directly to Brooklyn. There is always traffic and some days it will be easier than others to make the trip. There really is no special time to avoid traffic. ... more

I have done several short sales in Carteret. It all depends on the bank and the communication the seller has with them. In my experience It will take 4 to 6 months, if you are just starting to process a short sale. But then again it's not a city thing, it will take that amount of time in any city. ... more

Christian Blanco answered:

It's the perfect time to buy in Carteret. The property values have dropped and like Sukhi said, the location is the Key. The location hasn't changed, still close to all major highways and New York City. Home values will eventually return to the what they were and you will see a significant increase in equity. ... more

Mary Petti answered:
You offered $240 and it was accepted? Then you have 10 K in repairs, which if credited to you at closing, would effectively lower your purchase price to $230K.

Now the appraisal comes back at $235K, so you offer $225K (which seems like the appraised value MINUS the 10K in repair work) and still want 10 K in credits?? I think if your offer of $225K is accepted you have already received your 10K to do the repairs yourself.

Just my opinion, but often I am surprised at how these things work out. If seller is motivated, you can surely ask for 10 K in credits, if your $225k offer is accepted, and they may just say okay , but I tend to think they (and their attorney) would have the same take on the situation as I described above.
