Start contacting some agents who pay for "Premier Status" on either Zillow or Trulia. They are the same company now. Premier Agents have personal reps with direct phone numbers. If you ask them to do you a favor by contacting their rep to fix your listing, you can return the favor by doing something for them. ... more

Virtually impossible. Summit, being on the Mid-town Direct line is one of the worst locations to obtain parking, any day of the week, unless you're commuting in the middle of the night. I know, I live there. ... more

As a 30+ year Summit resident, the town has several key strengths which drive its desirability -- walking, destination, vibrant town center with a myriad of lovely shops and restaurants, convenient commute to NYC, and a strong school system. In the Spring - Fall, the Farmers' Market is a highly frequented spot for Sunday morning gatherings. ... more

Hi Chris,

You cant go by what these site post as property taxes as most time there are using estimations and old tax records. It is best to talk with a Lender get qualified first then word with a Agent to identify the property that you would be interested in, this was you would have the correct taxes and any other HOA fees in the total payment calculations.

As an FDIC bank that make loan nationwide we are here to help you make the best decision for your family based on sound responsible, knowledgeable financial guidance. I can be reach at 469-347-3572 for further no obligation consultation.

My sister just had a fence installed recently. She has a dog and he kept running off so it was the best solution for them. I wish you the best of luck and hope you find service that you are satisfied with.

Towns do not follow the same guidlines but usually they look at the permit and may come back out to your home for inspections after the work is complete.

Technically they should be looking at similar home sales to see what your home may sell for in similar condition. Some towns just go based on square footage number of bedrooms and bathroom and amenities like central A/C pool etc. ... more

Harriet Lewis answered:
Demarest and Cresskill are both excellent towns, though it depends whether or not you wish to commute by bus or train, as they have bus lines only.These are townsin which I routinely work/ Tenafly would be another choice of towns nearer to the Bridge for commuting. If you prefer transportation by train there are many other towns which you can select from in Bergen County which will also meet your criteria depending on your budget.
As I am a very experienced real estate agent I am certain that I can help you in your search and to assist you with more information and in any town you might choose to explore, if you have not already found your home.

It may be that the seller was hoping to get enough for the home so as not to HAVE to go into a short sale, and when he accepted your offer, and he divied up the expenses he didn't have enough to pay the bank in full. Sometimes a short sale is a question of as little as $10,000. Banks are slow, seem to be able to do whatever they like and if the selling agent is not working with an attorney who is familiar with the particular bank (Only four banks own the majority of the mortgages in NJ; they bought them up from smaller banks.Agents are supposed to advise you of a short sale but if it was not a short sale at the listed price the agent probably did not know they would have to go that route. If you can find out for me the bank that holds the lien and the attorney they are using you might have better luck convincing the seller to use a different attorney. It is rough. I closed one that was listed at $329,999, the bank agreed to take $268,000 in December but when the market picked up in January the bank just did a turnabout and said they would not take less that $315,00. Needless to say we were all caught by surprise and the $268,000 buyer did not not qualify for the $315,000 and I had to put it back on the market and start over. Luckily since the market HAD picked up we found another buyer quickly. You may have to switch attorneys to one that has more experience with Short Sales. A lot of people use a relative to close their sale but the relative is mainly a divorce attorney and really doesn't have real estate at the top of his game. I'll be happy to talk to you.
