Either one is fine. You can ask your realtor to connect you with lenders that she/he usually work with.

You may just have to wait. When in foreclosure, the bank does not own it yet to sell it. The owner cant sell it as most likely no time for a short sale. The house will be auctioned to cash buyers, if no buyer than the bank could take it back, assign it to an asset management company who lists it for sale through a local approved agent, ... more

I solved my problem with a German made electronic anti-scaler. It works great and its very popular in farming applications, preventing hard water problems related to well water. My house is in Round Rock TX that has a hardness of 11 grains per gallon average, which is considered hard according to USGS standards. Hard water scale in pipes will surely occur in the long run, but problems with your sprinkler valves due to calcium scale are absolutely common in this area mainly because of high evaporation in the outdoor summer heat. Hard water will also cause common ice maker and dish washer related issues. I always say preventive maintenance is an owners choice. I personally dislike dealing with calcium deposits around my faucets, showers and sinks, but above all, the thing I dislike the most is the slippery feeling in your body, after taking a hard earned shower, at the end of the day with softened water. Its like washing yourself with sea water. The sodium added to the water just wont allow proper soap rinsing and you never get to feel really clean. My house came with a huge Salt Water Softener, with two big tanks that took a lot of space in my garage which is not huge. After a long research, I decided to replace our salt softener with a Vulcan-Texas Anti-Scaler from Techno Mechanical Solutions in Austin. An affordable and eco-friendly way to prevent hard water issues without using salts. I was able to do the installation myself over the old softener pipes. The Vulcan requires no maintenance, just install and forget about it. No more salt buying trips to Lowes and carrying those back breaking bags. No more slippery feeling after taking a shower. No more calcium buildup around my fixtures or sprinkler valves. Water treated with Vulcan is safe for garden irrigation, your sprinkler system may also be protected. Vulcan dismantles prior limestone accumulations. Any pipe material may be treated up to 20 inches in diameter. The maintenance free Vulcan is very compact and sits of top of your pipe, saving all garage floor space for your favorite toys. Great for eliminating water lines and improve filtration in pools and spas. German engineering with 10 year warranty. Treatment for a normal size house with up to 1 1/2 inch pipe around $1000. Vulcan-Texas is space saver, effective, simple and affordable. Forgot to mention, my morning coffee tastes better without salt. ... more

Hi Neetu!

I see your question is a bit old, but....I'd like to help you if you haven't already made your move.

One question that would help with this is...what is your price range? The towns you mentioned, Livingston, Summit and Mllburn/Short Hills are all excellent options, albeit pricey - with great school systems and lots of local shops, movies, restaurants and recreational opportunities. Millburn and Summit have more of an "old world", charming feel with older homes (colonials and Tudors are common styles). The also have downtown walk-able commercial areas, and offer the Midtown Direct train into Manhattan (no changing trains.).
Livingston has a more contemporary feel - the style of homes can range from ultra contemporary to more traditional colonials and ranches. The commute would be via a bus (4-55 min) as well as a jitney service to the direct train in S Orange.

I would be happy to discuss this further, and in more detail, so feel free to reach out to me at your convenience.

If, however, you have already made your move........welcome and I wish you all the best!!
