Can I find a TRUE 2 br in Hoboken NJ for 400K - with laundry in the building and a decent location?

Asked by Amy, Hoboken, NJ Mon Jan 19, 2009

I am looking for a true 2 bedroom condo in hoboken with the ability to take the path (a reasonable walk is fair). I would like more than 900 sq ft. Also would like laundry in the condo or building. Is this possible for 400k? And this must be in hoboken (not weekhawken, jersey city, union city, etc).

Yes Amy,

In todays market you can find a 2 bedroom 2 bath more than 900 sq ft.

If anybody tells you otherwise, they dont know the Hoboken Market.

Dear Amy

In this market you should buy location location location.
In hoboken, best locations probably cannot be acquired for under $400K.

However, up & coming Morristown in Morris Co with NYDirect train is easily attainable in that price range

Go to
for current market snapshot of Morristown , 07960

Good Luck

I was out in Hoboken about a month ago and saw for sale signs for refurbished 2 bedroom condos on Willow street listed at 399k.

Hi Amy,
Of course you can but as is often the case, you will have to make some sacrifice to find something in your price range. It's funny but even buyers of million dollar units have to do the same thing. For example, would you be willing to live in a walk-up? What about a kitchen that's a bit dated? How do you feel about Jackson Street or even Monroe? Some of the choices you might be able to do something about in the future - like redoing a kitchen or bath. Others, like location and unit size you cannot change.

I suggest you do a few things - make a list of what's most important to you in a home. And keep a notebook with you to take notes as you go looking at places. There is so much on the market now and sellers are finally becoming more negotiable so you are in a favorable position. Still, it helps to keep your goals in mind and to keep track of what you've seen.

I post new listings, price changes, and everything that sold or went under contract every Wednesday as part of my "Weekly Wednesday Wrap-Up" at You can keep your eye on what's come on the market and what's been reduced.

Of course, I'm happy to speak with you if you prefer. Good luck!
