Hi- This property is now in attorney review which means it has an accepted offer and the attorneys are review the sales contract on behalf of their respective clients. I think the best question is to ask yourself if you mind being near a train and the noise that comes with it

Best of luck to you in your search and if you need an agent who has good experience with condos/ townhouses and good opportunities, please call me at 201-286-7206

Best of Luck to ya

Hi Neena,

This is a nice unit, I almost sold it to someone, however, you walk out your front door and the the train is right there. And yes it is noisy because it is really close. However if you can get used to it, it's a nice unit with good proximity to everything. if you'd like to visit it and you are not represented already, let me know!

Waldwick is on the NJ Transit "Main Line" and the trains run 7 days a week but infrequently - maybe every 1/2 hour - outside the rush hours. These town homes are right across the street from the line so there is going to be noise. The one good thnig is that there is no grade crossing nearby so they will be less inclined to blow the whistle.
Bear in mind also that these are modern so the soundproofing is less of an issue than with older construction and with a condo you would ten to spend less time outdoors than you would in the yard of a single family home.
As a general rule noise levels are a purely personal issue and you really need to be there when a train goes by and judge for yourself. And these are pretty reasonably priced for the area.

Option check with residences in that area, schedule of the train, if it only ruins a few times during day could be a great opportunity. With any city residence could have noise pollution from planes, traffic and etc.
