Jennifer G. answered:
I purchased a unit here almost a year ago (4th floor). I really do love it here. It's peaceful, feels very safe and the management company was doing a great job responding to emails and issues. Unfortunately they're leaving next month and who knows how the next company will be.
Comparative to my old condo (where I lived 10+ years), this place is amazing. Well-maintained, the cleaning crew is always here and nice, the snow is plowed very quickly and multiple times...
As for hearing neighbors, I actually don't (and I have good hearing.). And one of my neighbors has young LOUD kids but I never hear them in the unit - I just occasionally hear them in the hall. It's not a big deal though.
I love my unit and building and would definitely recommend here. I know there's an ongoing lawsuit with the builder but aside from the monthly fee going up a little, it doesn't impact life here.

In Riverdale the elementary school and middle school are combined all in one school building located on Newark Pompton Turnpike. Mostly the K- 4th grade classrooms are on the first floor and the 5th-8th grade classrooms are on the 2nd floor. For high school the Riverdale students attend Pompton Lakes High School. Let me know if I can help with any further questions at my cell: 973-222-6757. Thanks,

Yes, you should be able to get an equity loan. Like a regular mortgage, the lender will prequalify you. They will most likely do some type of appraisal on the property.

At the Home Depot booth at the NAR convention was saying they would draw a floor plan of a home for $99 each. Of course they were pushing it as a listing/marketing tool.

Good morning Michael, The answer to that question depends on so many factors. What is your situation right now? Will you be living close enough to manage your own rental? Compare the rental amount to the sale outcome to see which works best for your future investment plans.
I'll be happy to meet with you to consult your options and help you work out all of the logistics which will ultimately give you peace of mind with the decision that will work best for you.
Have a great day and please call or text or email with any specific questions.

Brian Rutter answered:
Carol,

Most condos for rent are owned by individuals, who are generally not willing to go through the hassle of finding a new tenant every couple of months. If you want a month-to-month lease, your best bet is probably to go to a larger rental community, particularly one managed by one of the national names, such as Archstone, Gables, or Home Properties. You will likely pay a higher monthly rent than someone on a 12 month lease, but you would have the flexibility. If you know what your timetable is projected to be, you may increase your chances by taking a 3 or 6 month lease with the option to continue month-to-month at the end of the term. Also, in general you would not have to pay a commission to rent at the apartment communities, which you most likely would to rent a condominium or single family home. While I like to make money as much as the next guy, I would not feel right seeing you pay 1 month's rent as a commission on a 3 or 4 month rental.

There are many websites featuring rental communities.

You will have several choices depending on whether you will want to drive a short distance 1st and if you prefer the train or bus. A bus does stop at the light on Ringwood Ave frequently, or you can drive to the station at Route 23/46 for a direct. There are also train stations nearby. Best recommondation is to check out NewJerseyTransit .com http://www.njtransit.com/hp/hp_servlet.srv?hdnPageAction=HomePageTo
Great luck and Happy 2010

Corey Grushin answered:
Kerrienj here iis the specific wording from FHA regarding a chapter 7 bankruptcy. I've also include a link to the book itself. These guidelines cover the entire US. Based on this information provided, you won't be able to close until the 2 year anniversary of the discharge of the chapter 7 bk unless their were extenuating circumstances that put you inthe chapter 7 BK. If not you may however be able to get a commitment in the 22 or 23 month with a stipulation that you can close beyond the bk anniversary date.

A Chapter 7 bankruptcy (liquidation) does not disqualify a borrower from obtaining an FHA mortgage if at least two years have elapsed since the date of the discharge of the bankruptcy. Additionally, the borrower must have re-established good credit or chosen not to incur new credit obligations. The borrower also must have demonstrated a documented ability to responsibly manage his or her financial affairs. An elapsed period of less than two years, but not less than 12 months, may be acceptable if the borrower can show that the bankruptcy was caused by extenuating circumstances beyond his or her control and has since exhibited a documented ability to manage his or her financial affairs in a responsible manner.

Additionally, the lender must document that the borrower's current situation indicates that the events that led to the bankruptcy are not likely to recur. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy does not disqualify a borrower from obtaining an FHA mortgage provided the lender documents that one year of the payout period under the bankruptcy has elapsed and the borrower's payment performance has been satisfactory (i.e., all required payments made on time). In addition, the borrower must receive permission from the court to enter into the mortgage transaction.
