I grew up in Tenafly and lived within ear shot of the train. I would say if you lived above engle street to the east or near knickerbocker to the west you probably won't hear the train most nights. Below those areas going toward the center of town, Hudson ave to the north, the Englewood border to the south, you will here the train. Hope that helped.

Joshua Baris answered:
The most important thing is to do document the repair request to your landlord. If you can send an email or certified letter that would be ideal. Secondly, you must read in detail what your current lease states and if you are still unable to decipher the answer reach out to a NJ Real Estate attorney and/or NJ Realtor. Feel free to contact me if you would like for me to look at your lease for you. Best of luck, Joshua Baris RealtorofNJ. ... more

Terry Tracy answered:
I think spring is the hottest season for real estate. But since its July 4th sales lag behind as people go away on vacation and start to think about the new school year. If you failed to sell in the peak season, consider listing your house in winter. Talk to your local real estate agent as they are best to tell you what the local housing market is like. ... more

Jay Shapiro answered:

I have to echo the sentiments and comments of the other brokers who've responded to your question.

There are too many variables and/or "unknowns" here, e.g., contingencies, timing, how long the other party was in the pipeline, etc.

Short sales are very unpredictable and it is the reason why many buyers prefer to avoid them. So many buyers think that a short-sale will result in a real savings. In fact, while a party is making an offer on a short-sale or potential short-sale property, they could be passing up an opportunity to purchase a house that they really could have.

Buying a short-sale property is walking a minefield. One has to be very careful and nimble.

You might be better off dealing directly with a seller who is eager and motivated but not necessarily under water. Or, consider looking at REO (Real Estate Owned) properties where the bank is motivated to sell and the title will be free and clear.

Jeanne Feenick answered:
Mary is right. Another consideration is timing - the first 45 days of your listing period is so important - interest falls like a rock after that. Errors in pricing during that important marketing period is a big blunder. Regardless of the market absorption stats, the first 45 -60 days is key. It may take you longer to sell, but blowing it early on will cost you in the long run. The basic reason is this - buyers are online now, they are well educated, if you are overpriced and don't correct quickly you will likely lose their attention and not get it back. This is a tough lesson - learned the hard way by many, many sellers. Sellers who price correctly out of the gate, or correct quickly if necessary, will get more $$ for their house than those who don't. Put another way, time is not your friend.

Market absorption, or "time to sell" is an easy calculation and a good gauge of how your market is moving - also good for setting your expectations. To calculate take total active listings and divide by the number that have gone under contract in the last 30 days.

Good luck to you!

Mrs. Q:
The Plaza in Tenafly is a beautiful place in Tenafly, but I'm sure that there are some other places you may find suit you and your family. Your answer from the Plaza itself is the most reliable because they are the renters. However, there are more homes that can compare if you are not satisfied with their optional den/bedroom scenario.

I always enjoy nice people coming to our lovely town of Tenafly. If you're already here, WELCOME!

Hi Animal lover:
The first place to go to check on your property taxes is the municipal tax assessors office on Riveredge Road in Tenafly. They will give you information over the telephone, but if you go in person you can see what is on file for your property. It is a matter of public record.

Generally Tenafly performs a tax revaluation every 4-6 years. In August of 2010, Tenafly began its latest revaluation project. The values for properties were as of October 1, 2010. So, you should have received a notice in the mail prior to this. Once you come close to receiving you certificate of occupancy, the tax assessor's office comes by to perform the tax assessment,. They take pictures of every room and also take photos of all of the exterior. So, the town is quite thorough during this process.

should you need further assistance or have completed this project, feel free to contact me.
