Where was the home listed for sale? Trulia is largely a portal that pulls info from other sources so changes are there is some "source document" out there on the web that says the home in question is still for sale. If you can delete the source of the info, it should get updated over here. ... more

you should contact an attorney for legal help - most of the contributors here are real estate agents and home buyers/sellers, so not qualified to answer a legal question

Hi Damien. According to the listing broker's website, the property on Orient has $262 in maintenance fees. The property on Hackett appears to no longer be available. There do appear to be other Rutherford condos that are in your price range. I grew up and currently live in Rutherford and would be happy to help with any of your real estate needs. It's a wonderful town. Please call me at 201-679-0564 or email me at if you would like to discuss some options. ... more

GO to your local town building department, and zoning office. As a homeowner you can do your own work, but you should find out if a permit is required. You may want to reconsider if you don"t plan on staying long term, because when you go to sell you home, the value is much greater in a 3 bedroom. ... more

Hi Needhelp, The first item to check is a full credit report that was run recently in the last 30 days. A loan officer will research by the credit report which year and month the foreclosure (120 days past due) has ended. At that point you will add three years to when you can obtain a mortgage with a bank, i my 8 yrs as a loan officer i dont know of any bank that will lend on a residential property with a foreclosure on credit report before that time period. The only options would be to use another persons credit or if you want to buy a commerical property (5 family property or higher) you would need at least 30-35% down and the loan would be by a "hard money" lender. They would charge points (5-10 points) and the interest rate could be 10-15% and the loan is not often a fixed rate, it often has to be refinanced in the future 5,10 and 15 yrs down the road or you can pay it off in full. Please email or call if you want to discuss, regards spencer k.

Rutherford is a lovely town. However, I urge you to please consider the established community of North Caldwell, NJ. Just 17 miles from mid town Manhattan, the township provides exceptional education, recreation, community and saftey. Ranking Top 20 within the state; the Borough of North Caldwell provides Public Pre K to 6th grade schooling with a regional 7th to 12th grade middle/high school which ranked 16 in the state.

Please visit my website and contact me directly (973-444-5643). There are a number of resident families which work in Manhattan and live in the North Caldwell community. With a number of nearby Midtown direct express buses and trains, local residents attest to the quality, happiness, privacy and comfort in their selection of home in North Caldwell, NJ.
