Hi Pjx
To get a bank loan or mortgage a buyer must show they are qualified. If you are saying that you want to put 50% of purchase price down and mortgage the other 50% there is a good possibility you could qualify. It depends on many factors such as your financial ability to pay back the mortgage.

We have a great mortgage affiliate here at Diane Turton Realtors who I can put you in touch with to explore your options at no cost to you. They will help you fill out the applications and explain which mortgages might be the most suitable for you.

Call or email for further discussion

Best regards,
Val Gabela

Hi Priti, Somerset County has good options to explore - Basking Ridge, Bedminster, Bridgewater, Warren, Watchung. Visit to get info on the market and properties in this area. The Market Insider Report (you'll see it on the upper navigation bar) will give you great data at the community level --- market, inventory, demographics and school info ---all good stuff.

If I can be of service do not hesitate to reach out to me.

What you are probably seeing on a map is an abandoned rail line that last ran approx 30 yrs ago. The rauils & ties have long been removed and at one point there was consideration into making this a jogging/bike trail. One thing to keep in mind about Lehigh Ave is that it is a one way street moving traffic into Woodbridge Ave. There is a popular diner at the corner of Lehigh and Woodbridge Av . Let me know if you have any more questions about the neighborhood. ... more

My experience is the same! And I cannot believe that some other Realtor would make a better buyers agent! Buyers should do their own research on sites like Trulia, Zillow. Buyers should not expect that their buyers agent would advice them on the best price for the home. ... more

Mary Petti answered:
Forgot to answer this question for you. You asked previously:


Let's keep investment aside to keep things simple. what about simple buyer buying simple single family house. is there anybody or any service there to certify to him that the house he is buying is "legal " ? Why can't his agent or his home inspector do that job of verifying "legality" ? in fact i am surprised that it's not already a part of their responsibility by default !"

If you are buying a single family home, rarely do you need to verify it's a legal use. There is a deed and title search done before closing to verify that the sellers are legal owners and that the use is consistant with the sale. Of course, your agent can go to the town on your behalf and verify it's a"legal" use, but that would more likely be necessary if it's a two family in a predominantly single family area. We already discussed the issue of whether improvements had permits or not, and how to go about verifying that. Again, legal USE and legal "improvements" are two separate issues.

William, in a previous post explained the situation quite well regarding why neither Realtors nor Inspectors can verify legality, and why it's up to you and the people you are contracted with to verify any questions you have. Worth re-reading.

Realtors work most often in the background to coordinate a smooth closing, giving gentle reminders to their clients about deadlines, guide you through the next step in the process, but usually do not make formal contact with the mortgage reps, title company, appraisers, underwriters, utility companies etc. We are facilitators not attorneys.

In any case, I wish you good luck in what ever you chose to do, and hope this exchange has been helpful and inciteful.
