What information are you looking for? I know this property. It is in a flood zone. It's a duplex and the other half just had a price reduction today.

Here in NYC, a property can be under contract for 3 months and in some cases significantly longer. There are many things which could delay the actual closing, including waiting on board approval (if an apartment building) and dealing outstanding city code violations. ... more

SO many warning signs, first always complete a walk through JUST prior to signing closing docs. Second use a local company to close. If you did not check before signing it may be on you. You need a legal advice from a local lawyer at this point ... more

You DON'T. These websites mean nothing. Their values mean nothing. They even admit they aren't accurate! Nothing is "hurting" your home's values. The values of your homes are based on actual sales, in recent months. (Fair Market Value).

I just wrote a blog post on the subject:

These sites were created to make money off us REALTORS. They charge us $$ to advertise our listings, they charge us $$ so our properties will be "featured". They charge us $$ to get the "lead" from a buyer who is interested in our listing (or they'll just randomly send it to other agents if we don't pay their fees).

It's a huge SCAM and a RIP OFF. And their info is terribly outdated and inaccurate and it's very deceiving to consumers -- you the buyers and sellers! If you're interested in your home's value, talk to a REALTOR. They'd be happy to do a CMA for you for FREE. Or you can hire an appraiser and pay them $500 for the same info.

Good luck!

I would also add a gardening nuance to this serious question and that is about Hunterdon County and what attracts people here. Although Hunterdon County officials have attempted to regulate the septic systems they overlook that buying a property 1-3+ acres offers prime gardening or small subsistence farm has meant that septic drain fields most likely drain affluent on acreage. This effectively makes gardening anywhere in the drain field could result in food contamination. To avoid this potential, during the inspection period hire a firm to not only inspect the mechanics of the system but the soil in the drain field as when it rains frequently bacteria rises to the surface. I noticed on one property deer totally avoided walking on a drain field "lawn". Heavy rain effectively expands the drain off and on some properties encompasses most of the gardening potential of a property. Need I say that if deer will not cross such a property or eat its grass children may not want to play there either. ... more

I have well and septic. Dump out your septic tank every 3 years by a professional. Bring a flashlight to inspect the inside of the tank and baffles. Properly maintained septic system should last a lifetime. As for the well, mine is 220 ft down. The pump is at the bottom of the well. Provides clean cold water. Most of area the water is hard. Which means water passed thru limestone on its down to the aquafilers. Hard water has calcium in it. If you have too much you may consider a water softner (salt). ... more
