You will have to review the website for the key to their color coding.

Sean Dougherty answered:
If I was in your shoes, I would want to keep the rental, but we have a few things to think of. First, do you need to purchase a home now? If not, I would wait til late summer to try to figure out if there's anything out there to consider purchasing. I would then start looking, if you qualify, and consider purchasing then. Main reason, if you are able to have 2 properties appreciating, that you'll be "earning" more money towards retirement.

Once your wife gets her position, you can start paying down her student loans, and once that's paid off, maybe you can pull some money off your rental to purchase other rental homes, which you can also afford the payment for, since you no longer have the student loans to pay off.

Just my 2 cents. Best of luck to you!

I live in Metuchen and can say for sure that it is possible.

Right now inventory is very low but there are currently 2 single family homes on the market that fit your description. In addition, there are a few condos that fit the bill as well.

If you would like I can email you the details. Send me an email at ken.kurtz@gmail.com with your info and criteria and I can send you the details.

I hope to hear from you.

Oddvision,

There should be more inventory coming this summer, but the market is on FIRE right now with most propeties getting multiple offers and ALL CASH offers. Get yourself a great Realtor now so that they can explain what is going on and what strategies to use going forward.

Good luck,

Hello Rosita -

The best way for you to get completely accurate information is to work with a real estate agent and have them setup a search for you at no charge in the lehigh valley MLS - that is where all of the information is added at the source - all other sites are just populated with what ever info they request via computer programming and/or in some cases if the agent pays for an upgraded account they can make changes to make sure the info is accurate - basically all other sites are here to advertise homes to the consumer and make money by charging real estate agents to connect to you - hope this helps. ... more

Hi Naga,
Home prices are steady now after the major correction that occured over the past few years. The market is strong and there is an uptick in the home prices. Victoria Park is a great community because it is centrally located to NJ Transit trains, in a good school system and major roads and always in demand. ... more

Cassandra M. Bickel answered:
Best thing to do is hiring a buyer's agent, especially if you are not familiar with the area.
They will walk you thru the local customs and help locate homes in your specific areas, price range and that are actually available as it could be a week or longer after a house goes under contract that it is updated in the system.

If you have not hired an agent yet, and would like a recommendation, let me know. I have a number of REALTORS in that area.

Good Luck,
Cassandra Bickel, REALTOR

My NC Homes Team answered:
Only you can really answer this question, as someone who lives here in Durham I would tell you that the crime rate here for a city this size is actually among the lowest in the state. I have had many clients attend NCCU and have never heard from any of them that they have had any problems. I would also anticipate that with a group of younger teens there will be chaperons with them at all times and this would be a wonderful experience for her. ... more

Mayra Anderson answered:
1. Get pre- qualified by a lender.

2. Find a real estate agent that will listen to your needs, check with your friends and family get a referral. Your agent will explain to you the process as it vary's with every buyer, house and the type of loan.

3. And don’t buy any large ticket items when under contract or for that matter when considering to buy your first home. You may not qualify for a loan because your debit is too high. Talk to your lender.

Good luck in your home search, best time ever to buy with the interest rates so low.

Thank you ADJ for your question:

Rentals in those neighborhoods are almost non existent.

Currently there are far more people who want to rent or buy homes in this area than there are homes for sale or rent.

For more information you may reach me at my cell phone: (408)509-6218

Sure you can, but it will depend on a few things. Some people graduate school, get a job and are able to purchase. So the question is, what did you do before the 6 months job history?

Brandon C Hickman answered:
Aloha Rick,

If you want to get away from the VOG head North to Waikloa, North Kohala, Waimea or Honokaa. These areas typically have the predominant North East trade winds that keep the sky & air clean & clear. The Hamakua Coast, Hilo and even Puna are very clear also as the trade winds blow the VOG away from these areas. The afternoon SW thermal winds then blow the VOG back up onto the Kona side. The combination of VOG and convective clouds make Kona worse than other areas. Don't get me wrong, I love Kona but VOG is a reality of living in Paradise.

Aloha & A Hui Hou,

answered:
Real Estate Agents are not allowed to comment on a variety of topics. The Fair Housing Act restricts the information that can be provided by a Real Estate Agent.

Off Limit Topics Include:
• Crime Statistic (including questions about whether a neighborhood is good or bad or safe)
• Demographics
• Environmental Concerns
• Household Income
• Religion
• Schools (including questions about how good or bad the school is)

Determining to the answers to questions on any of the topics listed above is something that you would need to do on your own. It is up to the individual to make their own determination about a specific area. If a Real Estate Agent were to comment on such a thing, it could be steering which is a prohibited act.

Some websites to try include: http://www.crimereports.com
