Pay no attention to these "real estate websites" and their so called "values" that are randomly assigned to properties. Not here, not Zillow, not They are ALL inaccurate! If your home isn't for sale, don't worry about it! If you really want to know what your home is worth, call a local REALTOR and they'll be able to give you a FREE market analysis.

P.S. I just wrote a blog post on this subject:

Hello, I have sold units in Paddington Square and never had a problem. This is one of the better developments in Mahwah.

Tiya, if you are still in the market for a unit. I have an extraordinary unit coming on the market around the end of the year / beginning of 2015. This unit is so private and the entrance and unit actually face the wooded area. Everything in the unit has been redone and is in outstanding shape.

Let me know if you have any questions or would like additional information.

Hello Jazmine,

Property taxes in NJ are much lower than they are in NY. The price all depends on the town, price of home and square footage. If you were interested in seeing a couple of properties and comparing taxes, please give me a call at 845-664-2144.

Hello Jazmine,

If you are referring to Trulia and Zillow, a lot of the "pre-foreclosures" you see are not exactly for sale. What happens is when a homeowner has missed 3 or more payments, a lis pendens gets sent to them. A Lis Pendens is a notice that you have missed 3 payments and that you will be in default. It takes about 3 or 4 Lis Pendens and 3-5 years for the bank to actually foreclosure on the home. In that meanwhile, the homeowner has a chance to catch up on payments if they can. If the owner is selling and its short of what they owe the bank, that is considered a short sale. With a short sale, the bank is the third party approval since they will be taking a loss. I can view foreclosures and short sales in my system if you were interested in purchasing one.

You can reach me direct at 845-664-2144.

If you have anymore questions, please don't hesitate to call.

Thank you,

Taking the train is 55-90 minutes (depending on time/train) from Mahwah station to NY Penn Station. From there, you'd have to figure out your route and add time from Penn Station to your destination.

Driving in can be anywhere from 1-3 hours depending on traffic. On weekends, it can be as little as 45 minutes.

Never took the bus from up here, but I usually park at the North Bergen Park and Ride and take the bus from there.

Well the 2 other offers finally presented themselves in writing... is likely what happened here. Sadly the agent who represented you probably was not offered the invitation to counter, as they likely settled on the higher offer and just left it at that. ... more

Jeanne Feenick answered:
Good idea to run a combination - but if/when push comes to shove, the tax assessor's view will win unless you can prove otherwise. The presence of a window and closet does not always do the trick if the room is below grade to any degree - with the exception of a bi-level home, where that bedroom on the lower level does count so long as it has that closet and egress. This is all my opinion - check with your agent and the township - you can also ask your agent to chat with an appraiser.

Good luck and best,
