The bulk of my buyer base is first time buyers - many of whom have found me here on Trulia. I worked with 7 buyers who had short sales as an initial focus or top choice. For those interested enough to make an offer, we put our hat in the ring and then continued our search. Three of the 7 short sale buyers hung in there and closed on the short sale transaction. The other 4 found something they liked just as much or more and closed - in many cases before we even heard back from the bank.
One of those buyers bought in Woodbridge and is very happy with their decision. They had looked in neighboring Edison, Metuchen an Piscataway and chose Woodbridge - knowing it well having rented there for some time.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance.

The maintenance fees for this unit are 245/mo. and the taxes are 4960/yr.
Another thing is that this property is a short sale. That does not mean that it takes a short time to buy, that refers to the fact that the current owner owes more than the property is worth and the bank has to agree to take less(hence the word short).
