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

If your credit score is 580+ I could possibly find you a lender. There are a lot of factors which ultimately contribute to qualifying you so please contact me at your earliest convenience. I'm from Fort Lee myself so I'm extremely familiar with the area.

Buying property that's in preforeclosure or is bank owned (so it has been through the foreclosure process) presents some additional challenges to the purchaser's attorney. First of all, the seller's attorney is probably going to be a high volume law firm so that any proposed changes by the buyer might be initially rejected but if done with some diplomacy may be accepted. The seller, if a bank, will also likely have a boilerplate, rider which i've felt was unduly harsh and very unfair to buyers, however, if explained to the client, and the client feels he or she can live with the risk (because of the substantial savings sometimes seen) then we move on and proceed with the deal. Secondly, if it's bank owned, a buyer's attorney must carefully review what's called the chancery abstract in new jersey. It's a transcript and summary of the foreclosure legal documents, it shows amongst other things, who was served and when and it demonstrates whether there were any irregularites with the foreclosure. If there are any issues, then cancelling the deal may be the buyers best bet. Granted, there are rarely issues, but they do come up every so often.

Finding a buyer is just the start of the sales process. Why would you risk your largest posession going it without representation. IT may seem easy, but mistakes you can make are plenty and once made, are irreversible.
Good luck with your decision.
