Before you decide to place an offer you must at least consider the following:
1. How well is the condo managed is it financially sound?
2. What items have seller disclosed?
3. How does the location fit my criteria?

Realtor can help you find out the info so you can make a sound decision before you make an offer.

Hi Lynn,

It looks like 63 Oak was withdrawn form the Multiple Listing Service early in 2013. I do not see a change in title from the tax records. Please let me know if I can be of additional service.

Jersey City Realty Exchange answered:
Hello MJ, Most Listings are above par. Choose an agent with experience. Negotiate to a level that you are comfortable with. If you need a mortgage the bank will require an appraisal. If paying cash there are alternate suggestions and, I do not think the dock repair will stop you.

There is always a market for the specialty type homes. If your question is related to projected value increases it appears good as values have risen this year.

Emil Veltre answered:
Hi Home Buyer,

Not sure where you are with this process, however, I will provide you with my opinion and offer you my help and guidance through this unconventional real estate process.

First of all, not sure how experienced you are with the purchasing of real estate, however, unless you are prepared to put time and effort into buying foreclosed properties I would stay clear as they could truly be money pits. Additionally, as the market has been making improvements, some areas more so than others, lenders are not offering great discounts on these properties and, therefore, the real value in buying such properties is harder to find.

I am a CDPE (Certified Distress Property Expert) which as previously stated is the 'gold standard' for the handling of such properties.

With that said, if you need any further guidance, whether it be advice or help to navigate through this, most times, very convoluted transaction process please give me a call at 973.868.4034 or e-mail me at to set up some time to discuss further.

Have a GREAT day!

Best regards,

Emil Veltre, RPh, MS, CDPE

Oh, brother, if 281 Forrest is the area that are looking for, all I gotta say is either you really are someone who feels comfortable in the hood, or you are the next guru who knows how to pick under-developed areas that are going to blossom.

Safety is a personal thing. I feel safe in most neighborhoods in the US, but a lot of people I know would not feel safe in some of the neighborhoods that I find safe.

Safety is often confused with the feeling of being comfortable. E.g., Ocean Avenue at Danforth, Jersey City, about 1 mile South from your pin-pointed location. I feel completely safe. 97% person of the middle-upper class folks would have no desire to go into. That is what I would call a hood, with a lot of "projects". As a matter of fact, entire Ocean avenue is a hood. Heck, that description could apply to all of Greenville.

John F. Kennedy Blvd, Martin Luther King Blvd. These are typically street names that you want to avoid. Whether these are located in Jersey City or Indianapolis or Alabama, these are probably NOT streets you want to live near.

Now, like I said, safety is a personal choice. Will you be shot? Probably not. In fact, chances are very very low that you might get shot. But certainly, you might be subject of a few uncomfortable situations, ranging anywhere from people on the street soliciting you for ANYTHING, and I mean anything, to maybe finding your car window shattered.

Hi Dominque All commissions in NJ are negotiable regardless of which company you decide to work for. If you are considering a career in real estate just call a few different brokers for a pre-interview and they will be happy to tell you what their pay structure is for new agents.
