This home is not for sale. You need to know that real estate websites like Zillow and Trulia obtain public information from counties across the U.S. Therefore judicial and foreclosures is public information. It does not mean the home is for sale. It can take years before the home is listed for sale. Currently this home is being held by a bank. ... more

I read your replies below. Forget it, it won't work. You need to own a car on Staten Island and does the SI Ferry run 24/7? If you're budget is $300 - 400K, forget about buying a house. Any house in this price range means it needs at least $100K in renovations / repairs OR it's in a high crime neighborhood and that's just to start.

Your best method with your budget: buy a co-op in Queens, Brooklyn or the Bronx within walking distance to the subway or bus stop and in a safe neighborhood. Another option is the nearby suburbs of Westchester or Nassau Counties. Both suburbs have co-ops within walking distance to the train stations (MetroNorth or Long Island Railroad) and there are buses. Check the schedules to see if the trains run at 1:00AM.

Remember, the safer the neighborhood, the higher the prices for housing.

New York City contractors MUST be licensed and insured. They are VERY expensive so you need to get estimates from several of them. If you hire unlicensed and uninsured contractors, New York City will not pursue a case if they do any damage or cause any injury.

It's the law!
