The Teterboro station operates on the weekdays but the train doesn't stop there every time. You can walk there by the area where the Walmart in Teterboro is. You can get the 163 and 164 bus to New York in several stops on the Boulevard and the 161 bus on Route 46. ... more

I will break down all means of public transportation into New York City, as I am a native resident of Hasbrouck Heights, currently residing in Lodi, and commute into Manhattan daily during the summer months, as I am a dually licensed sales representative. If your planned purchase if within walking distance to Williams Avenue, then you are in luck, as the 161 stops at the intersection of Terrace Avenue and Williams daily, until about 8 a.m. I would like to notate when commuting back via Port Authority, be sure to board the 161 via Passaic, as this is the only bus that will travel the same route, and last departures are generally 7 p.m. If your schedule is beyond these hours, or you are simply not within walking distance to Williams Avenue, there is also the 163, which has multiple stops along the Boulevard (West of Terrace Avenue), and has express routes until about 9 a.m. (do not be fooled however, express routes are still about an hour in). Lastly, you have the train which you can either depart from Moonachie, Teterboro, and Rutherford. Again, dependent upon where your purchase is on Terrace Avenue (i.e. closer to Wood Ridge, or closer to Hackensack) will determine which station suits your needs. The train is slightly more expensive, however, much quicker (30 minutes). You have options as well; you can take it straight to Hoboken, and take the Path in if you work downtown (i.e. FiDi, West Village, Chelsea) or you can transfer at the Secaucus stop which will leave you Midtown at Penn Station. Best of Luck, and I hope I was through. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me, as I have stated, I am in and out the Manhattan daily, as one of my offices is located in Chelsea. ... more

Monika,

Typically a seller is responsible to apply and pay for, and obtain any municipal certifications required to transfer (sell) property. This usually includes a Certificate of Occupancy ( or a C of O) and a fire inspection for smoke/carbon monoxide detectors and fire extinguishers. If the municipality finds that repairs are needed to obtain the C of O. or the proper fire equipments is missing/ not in the right places, it's then the sellers responsibility to arrange and payf or them to be performed.

Sometimes a seller is not willing or able to pay for these inspections and this usually occurs in a, "as is" sale which can include short sales, sometimes with estates, and sometimes just because the sellers don't want to do any repairs.

Talk with your agent and/or attorney as to the pit falls of the buyer being responsible for obtaining these certificates.

Henry is it your Professional advice that Homebuyers can use the Tax Credit for Downpayment and
and lenders are making this "bridge loan" based on Shaun Donovans statement at a NAR get together.
I know NAR made the claim, spread the news and members blog/answer everywhere that it is so but is it really?

Did you read any of the discussions betweens Lender/agents at activerain, inman's, agentgenius, realtor.org ect, many seem to have a different take on it. Are they wrong? .. http://activerain.com/blogsview/1075899/using-first-time-homebuyer-tax-credits-for-the-downpayment-it-s-gone-the-story-of-the-8-000-tax-credit

http://activerain.com/blogsview/1077766/nar-you-silly-old-goat-why-would-you-let-this-be-emailed-to-every-realtor-after-yesterday-

Do you have new information that the May 12 announcement is anything more than an inaccurate statement of fact from NAR?

As far as property value and future appreciation, if you're looking at a house for an investment (whether to live in or rent out or whatever) then I would take a good look at this and it looks as if Hasbrouck Heights has higher median sales prices based on trulia.

If however you're looking for a home to settle in, enjoy it for yourself, and raise or start a family, I would not worry much about future appreciation. For one, housing prices are not going up any time soon and when they will start, it will be probably closer at the historical pace of around 3-6%. The more important thing is finding a nice home which you enjoy in a nice neighborhood which appeals to you.

Maywood is a neat small town that is close to everything, for the most part without traffic, except for Passaic street during the holidays, due to the mall. Also the Bergen Mall has been expanded greatly so that area can see an increase in traffic...


Ask any more questions you have, but If I were you, I wouldn't put too much emphasis on future appreciation, that is speculating and shouldn't be a factor if your looking for a home and not an investment. Both towns are nice.

Go to the sheriff sale and watch to see which lawyer is representing the bank/property . This is the person who will give you an answer to the 1st piece of your puzzle , they typically give you the info for their contact person at the bank or their field agent,. basically from that point it's going to be as the others up above have posted. If it's a small bank you might get lucky .

good luck
