How are you doing?
Your question was: "what kind of houses surround this property".
OK. This particular house will be the best one on a block. In that section of Livingston (which is not bad) homes mostly are Bi-Levels Split - Levels, some colonials, built between 1960-1975, and sold between $520,000 and $800,000. There is one sold at $1,065,000 (renovated large home).
The house of your interest is priced right, but it is not in development of similar homes.
As a buyer you are not paying sales taxes. The owner will pay real estate transfer tax at closing. Commute to NYC is not so bad. You can take bus to NYC or have a short drive to train station (15-20 min) or drive to Path Train in Harrison (15-30 min).
