We are a real estate search engine so we don't represent the homes found on our site. Please follow these steps to begin your home search:

1. Click the 'Rent/Buy' tab at the top of our homepage.
2. Enter your desired city and state in the search bar and hit Enter.
3. Click 'Max Price' to select what your highest price would be to pay for a home. Click 'Min Price' to set the lowest price you would pay.
4. Select your preferred property type, square footage, allowed pets, etc.
5. Click the orange 'Done' button.

This will begin to pull up listings that are more tailored to what you are looking for.

If you are interested in a listing, click on the "Request Viewing" button. You can also take advantage of our vast network of agents here:

Lafayette Ave Extension goes to Jefferson but calling the Borough is best to make sure the home you are renting or buying is in the school district you want.

Not sure why - just go to Zillow and enter the property address....then go down to TAX HISTORY.
See this example that shows the property tax info:,-74.066306,40.923111,-74.246207_rect/12_zm/1_fr/?3col=true

Easier to show without you a chance to spruce up the home before listing it.
However, if you've got good paying tenants with higher than average rents, investors may find that appealing...I as an investor would, but you increase your odds for selling if one unit minimum is vacant so a first time home buyer can occupy with tenant income on unit 2, or an investor can purchase vacant or occupied by tenants.

If you want representation, you should interview Buyer Agents in your area and decide on one to work with. In most cases (in my area), the commissions for both agents come from the sale of the property. When a listing is taken, usually the seller will decide to pay commission to a Buyer Agent as well as the Listing Agent. There should be no cost to you for having Agent representation, but is it may cost you in other ways if you do not have an agent representing you. A Listing Agent may say that they will represent both parties, but in reality, that means that they really are not representing either party. They cannot advise or give information about one to the other. Even if you have to pay a fee for an agent to represent you, you would be in a better situation.

Although all agents must be fair and honest in their dealings with the public, their true relationship is with their client and his or her best interests. This is why Buyer Agency came about - for the protection of the Buyer.

As a Realtor for 29 years and a Broker in 2 states. I would never go to locality, that I know nothing about, without a Buyer's Agent representing me in the purchase of real estate. Being made aware of local laws and regulations and customs is most important as well.

You can raise your tenants rent as long as you are at the end of the lease term and it is within market rents.

Hi Martone Family,

I understand you want to sell your home, well right now it’s a great time. There’s a lot you need to know if you’re trying to sell your home on your own. Reason I bring this up, about 90% of FSBO (For Sale by Owner) end up listing their property with a broker. Below is a link I would like you to read and if you have any inquires please don’t hesitate to call. FYI I am license in two states New York and New Jersey. In New Jersey I work for Churchill Corporate Services who specializes in relocation short term, so I deal with fortune 100, fortune 1000, relocation companies, international clients, and insurance companies who ask me to help them find homes to rent or buy. We have a great program for home owners and if you are interested in moving forward, please provide me with the best number and time to call. I look forward hearing from you.…

Nothing wrong with this at all for a short sale. It is your choice whether you want to accept the conditions and try to purchase the home. If your offer is submitted and approved by the lender, even if there are back up offers for more money, you might still get house. ... more
