To add an open house to Zillow, please first make sure you are logged in. Then, select "Edit Listing info" at the top of the home details page. On the following page, you'll see the option to add your Open House: Make sure to select the "update for sale by agent/owner" button at the bottom of the page and your open house will be saved.

Good luck at your open house!

In Hoboken there are many appartments all below grade. So the answer would be yes. But if you are talking about Single family homes and basements it is a whole different story.

The bottom line is this... if paying cash your offer should never be at full price, and even lower than a discounted financed offer...simply because you have a much less complicated deal, with less issue dealing with title and mortgage commitments, and delays with closing. It is the best way to structure the best deal if paying cash....always. Would I do it? Only if absolutely necessary. I would still shoot for a financed offer in the same range (yes, the same cash offer range) and protect the cash...I would not want it dumped into a property where I could have trouble getting it out if I need it.
Finance an put the cash in a side fund that is liquid, safe, and gets a real return. Equity has no rate of return. Tom Hinz

Not only is staging extremely important ... so is professional photography. I've sold a number of houses that were previously listed and expired as unsold .. . some without lowering the price (and 3 where we actually raised it) and they were sold within days! Proof that it wasn't price ... simply not marketed to the best advantage. ... more

If you do decide with the help of your real estate agent to have the home staged do not forget to retake the pictures. While the home will probably show much better for the showings don't forget the pictures because most likely the pictures will be better as well. ... more

As a realtor you should be able to come up with an idea of is possible sale value with the tools we have access to. If your clients want to spend the money on an appraisal to make them more comfortable
with the value then that's an option for them to consider.

A tax lien does mean that a seller owes money on the taxes. All municipalities have different rules in place regarding foreclosing on those homes. some in Westchester allow you to be behind two years before they foreclose. If the seller gets a buyer and can pay the taxes at the closing all will be fine.

Hi Michele,

Awesome news for you-there is extremely low inventory right now in Hoboken, so it's a seller's market. Well-priced, desirable properties are seeing multiple offers, and bidding wars that get the seller above asking and the best terms. Most properties are not lasting longer than a week on the market. There are about 4 buyers for every property right now. However, overpriced properties are sitting on the MLS, and some turn into rentals.

I would be happy to view your home and look at the comps to give you an accurate price that would get you offers. More properties will come on as the Spring begins so if you want to sell, now is the perfect time.

Call or email me if you'd like to set up an appointment.

ArminRU asked:
I have been told that in Hoboken, any sort of non-cosmetic home renovations cannot be done by the owner. This is because the town only gives permits to licensed contractors. Is this true?…

Hello Thomas, there is a demand for all types of properties in Hoboken as there is very little for sale.

One bedroom plus dens typically present a challenge in marketing so it is important that you hire a professional with a good track record to assist you. The challenge lies in that generally one bedroom plus dens are more expensive than one bedrooms, but less expensive than two bedrooms and it is critical to make buyers aware of the additional den and it is found on the multiple listing service since brokers search by number of bedrooms. This will ensure your property appeals to the widest pool of potential customers.

You'll also want to consider staging depending on the layout of your condo and where the den is located. Some buyers are not keen on the den if it is not well staged. The den should have a clear useful purpose and present a value to buyers.

As for a forecast, we will see more inventory enter the market in Spring as is typical and prices should inflate slightly. However, to capitalize on the spring market you'll want to position yourself for sale in the early spring months before inventory peaks and before summer starts as most closings happen in April, May and June.

I hope this helps in your research, feel free to reach me if you need additional insight.

Don't do it. I can't tell you how many times I've shown tub-less condo's where the buyer's say, "This is a great place, but the bathroom doesn't have a tub". I'll even ask them how often they use the tub and the answer is almost always "seldom". But, they still want that tub! ... more

Jean Oxford answered:
1) Curb appeal helps to get them in the door! Fix those items you have let go like numbers and paint falling off the mail box, cobwebs on the front porch, cleaning the exterior of windows, weeds growing better than flowers, mowing, weedeating, and giving the front door a fresh coat of paint and new knob, if necessary.

2) Neutral interior paint colors will give you a broader buyer base. Clean carpeting if it is in good shape. If not, consider replacing carpet with a neutral color carpet, hardwood, or laminate. Buyers tend to deduct for carpeting even when told they will get a carpet allowance. Outdated lighting needs to go. Replace ceiling fans that are on their last leg. If you can't afford new cabinetry, consider a fresh coat of paint with a hardener in it. Also, new hardware. Need window coverings if the old ones are broken, dirty, or outdated. Change out toilet seats. Clean closets and add neccesary shelving.
