Wow, it is a beautiful house. I used to live close by for 5 years. But I can see they already have accepted an offer and it is going under contract. New homes are coming up every day in a season though.
For new construction we offer closing costs assistance to buyers up to 2% of selling price. We need to come with a buyer to the site at the initial showing. For this home you could get around $9K towards your closing costs.
I hope it wont take too long before you see something else you like!

Livingston is a very hot area. Homes priced right fly in this market. Depending on your situation I would first evaluate your home readiness for sale and then concentrate on a home you want to move into. As far as you dont have a burden of mortgage payment you might want first find what you need and then immediately list your home - this strategy would allow you to secure a new home and so you wont need to move twice - price your home nicely and you will get offers in a matter of days. Another suggestion - if you want to list with a realtor - use the same person for your home purchase - besides huge savings on commission it would be easier to coordinate both deals and close the same day. If interested in listing by owner I can share with you how you can avoid paying listing commission for thousands in savings. ... more

You can check with the Essex County Court (Civil) to see if there is any pending litigation against a specific condo association. You can also check the NJ Court website "NJ Courts Online" and use their search feature.

Generally if the landlord or leasing office doesn't pay for the service, then it goes to the individuals to pay. I would guess that this is probably paid by the apartments and included in your bill. Otherwise you'd be getting charged directly for the service. If you want a direct answer your best option is to talk to the management at the apartment or the company that does that garbage removal.

Well, I specialize in W. Orange (grew up there for part of my life.........have lived in the area my entire life) I know it well.

As far as specializing in VA loans - I leave that to our in-house mortgage rep - he is the expert when it comes to loans.....that's who has the expertise you will need for that part of the sale.

Feel free to reach out to me..........I'd be happy to help.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods. ... more

Hi Melly

Sorry, but 68 Midland is under contract.
It went UC on Nov 15, and is scheduled to close on January 31, 2014.
It was listed for 339,000 and was only on the market 14 days.

In total, there are currently only 13 active listings in Glen Ridge.

Best wishes..........let me know if you have any other questions!

Basimah North answered:

I'm a school teacher/parent my self and I too care about where my child goes to school. If your looking for a school for your child/children. I simply give advice of researching where your child would most likely go to school thats close to home. Then start by making yourself familiar with the area in terms of street names and city transportation if needed. I have a little one and these are some of the basics that I would do and have done. I would also take a trip to the local Board of education as well as schools. I believe as a parent you must be truly aware of the school you choose for your child.

West orange has several schools to choose from so just make sure you're on point with everything and you will be able to choose the right school for your child. I know this sounds like a lot but take it from another parent " it pays to do the work the parenting way".
I attached a link below for schools in West Orange along with the city transportation in case you don't drive or if you should ever need a bus. I hope this helps and my information is below if you should have any other questions that I would love to answer.
