This place is a nightmare and it all stems from management. They do not care/concern themselves about their properties and show it by not acting on the needs of their tenants. They are rude on the phone, tell tenants to submit their 30 day notice if they do not like how they "run" their "business" and then hang up the phone after rudely dealing with the people who pay part of their yearly profit. I have never in my life dealt with management whom employs staff that do not provide proper upkeep. They also have an awful parking issue which spills into the side streets of Metuchen and Edison. They cite "We have 312 families and only 150 spots so it's your problem not ours." This is a frustrating environment and one to steer clear of as it seems to only be getting worse! ... more

Some lady with a strong European accent doubles up as manager. Most of the time feels she's being disturbed and treat enquirers like they are a
nuisance. Should not the Rental Office be easy to find? Not so in this case. ... more

Dear Nitin,

Edison Glen Terrace is a good buy. Certainly close to Route 1. Has good potential to rent as well. As long as the unit is in well kep and well maintained condition, you as a Landlord will have less hastle with your tenants.
There are other areas besides Edison where you could get a better return on your investment. You will also get younger and well kept homes with the same price range.
Furthermore, there are several things you can do after you buy the condo for less hastle such as get a worry free plan from PSE&G. This is bought by the landlord or the tenant.
As a loan office, always remember you will need a minimum of 25% down to buy an investment property.
For any questions, whether real estate or mortgage, feel free to contact me.

I can't believe you are asking this question, every one has a different take and some pass bad information.

Power Lines: They are very far away. Not an issue.
Zip code is 08837, and the schools are James Monroe, Herbert Hoover, and Edison High. School ratings change every year, N.Edison school ratings are not far from south Edison schools.

Edison Glen does have pool and easy commute. The tax rate for this district is lower than, rest of the Edison.

Crime: Few thefts, and most of them because of the carelessness of residents. People don't use deadbolts and leave cars unsecured. Thefts are on ramp all over Middlesex county as per Police. Not sure of other counties. Economy takes the blame, since last 1 year I haven't seen any thefts.

Talk to realtor who knows about the area, cares about client interest and can provide actual details. Always know what you want and the try to match if any community fits your needs.

Marc Paolella answered:
This is why it is a good idea to have an agent representing you even when you are buying new construction. If anyone else is considering buying a new home, contact an agent to represent you before going into any sales office. You want someone looking out for your interests. The builder's agents represent the builder, you should have someone representing you.

There are other criteria to the tax credit than those discussed here. You also need to consider the price of the house you intend to purchase (cannot be above $800k), you and your spouses current income, etc. Here is the most comprehnsive link I have found to date that answers ooodles of questions regarding the tax credit.

Love and Peace,
