Karim - it will depend on the rush hour nonsense with the Holland or Lincoln tunnels....if one tube is out, forget about it...figure anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour though for normal.
If you leave earlier, you will get there quicker as a rule (before 7am)...
Good luck with your move.

Amy, you cannot, Trulia is not designed for homeowners to list or promote their listing, this is something your Realtor can and should do for you.

The bank is going to want to see that you are able to afford the house and come up with the funds necessary to close. If the funds are deposited then they are easy to verify. If the funds are coming to you b gift then a gift letter would likely be satisfactory. If you are waiting for funds from future pay then I would wait till you have those funds. ... more

These are the huge steel power towers in an unincorporated area. Both the electric company and the village aren't able to help.

Leonard Dunikoski answered:
Short sales are often a challenge, and if there are more than one lien holders the probability of success goes WAY down. Please give me some more information about how many bedrooms, what price range, etc. and I'd be glad to help you. You might enjoy reading my 3rd quarter update on Marlboro real estate- just go to Marboro "Advice" and click on "Marlboro Blogs".

Are you limiting yourself to Marlboro, or would you consider some of the other surrounding towns?

Annette Lawrence answered:
Larry provided you real straight talk. You responded 'Absolutely right.'
You are engagings agents from across the country who assist owners and buyers in dozens of transactions a year. Successful agents, intitivly or with full awareness, are on the frontier of human perception. We know how to present a product to the intended audience in the manner that allows them to percieve, through all their senses, "this is the right home!"
Where the wheels come off the wagon is your reference to "THE RIGHT BUYER!"
Help me out. Tell me who is the right buyer?
What attributes of your home presents unique value to this right buyer?
As others have stated, no purchase offers, absolute silience means, YOU ARE OUTSIDE THE VALUE BRACKET OF THOSE SEEING YOUR HOME. Here are your choices:
1. Adjust price to fall with existing buyer value bracket.
2. Market to the RIGHT buyer. You will need to remove the obvious and predictable obstacles such an approach will present. However, the latter will prove INVALUABLE.
You must choose two of the following: fast, cheap or good. You can not have all three.
Best of success to you.

Joan Congilose answered:
Some homes in Marlboro do have an Englishtown mailing address but that will not effect the schools your children will be attending. However I would like to mention that Marlboro is part of the Freehold Regional school district. All children are buses to school, however depending on the location the high school they attend may vary based on the location. Some go to Colts Neck or Freehold High School, but they all are excellent. The best way to find out is to call the transportation dept of the school district and tell them the address . ... more

"i" may take longer to sell a million home but check with "me" I believe they are a little faster.

Steven Cohen answered:
Not easy on the children but a good financial idea for you. College is expensive enough and it is sound financially to reduce your overhead and your real estate tax bite by downsizing into something that will fit your present needs instead of paying for something you do not need.
I am a licensed Real Estate Salesperson and would be happy to discuss with you your future needs and alternatives. If you are presently not represented by an agent please feel free to contact me at My cell phone is (732) 642-4550.
Good luck to you.
