Much will depend on your budget, but certainly the two towns you mentioned are great communities and both would have more of an urban suburban feel to them. I would not describe them as small towns. But if you are looking for towns with an urban/suburban flair, the Morristown, Summit and Westield are all worth considering.

Because you do not need to go all the way into the city, your options open and and you can travel on the roadways and/or trains to get to your office. I would add to your list the many wonderful communities along the 78 corridor, New Providence, Berkeley Heights, Watchung, Basking Ridge, Warren. All of these communities have train access except Watchung and Warren, but they are right across 78 from the communities that do.

I work with many relocation buyers and would be honored to assist you.

The credit checks are there to protect the Landlord, and the lengths you have gone to fix your credit will work in your favor, as will having proof of employment and salary confirmation. The bottom line is if you can afford to pay the rent for the apartment you find, you should be OK.

I'd be happy to help you with your rental search, feel free to reach out to me to discuss more.

Rental fee in the Hoboken area is 1 month. The rental market is very competetive and $1,500 is not easy...not impossible...odds are you will have to spend more. if you would like assistance, please contact me at

Thanks and good luck

Andres Garcia answered:
Start your search as soon as possible. Most rentals don't hit the market until around 45 days before the availability date. However, the market is so tight right now if you can jump on something early you will avoid the crush of renters looking 45-30 days out. We just had a April 1st rental go in a couple of days in mid January. Start looking now and if you see something you like jump on it.

Andrew Tisellano answered:
There are some buyers that do not take baths they only take showers. When my children were young I found it easier to give them a shower than soaking them in the tub.
there will also be buyers on the other side that would need a tub for there children or themselves.
There is no way to put a value on it just that some buyers will appreciate the new shower and some will keep looking for a unit with a tub. Being in Hoboken I would say enjoy yourself and when you are ready to sell you will have to wait for the right buyer which may not be long in Hoboken anyway.

best wishes for the new year

Hi Murray,

I am not sure about a certificate but you can get access to flood maps on this site:

I presume the insurance company should be able to provide you with any certificates, but I am guessing.

Karina Abad answered:
Hi Nittany keep in mind that the rates you are quoted are not final and will be based upon when you actually apply and your credit.
I personally always strongly recommend my buyers use a local rep with a good reputation. It is critical for the success of the transaction due to the nuances of appraisals in our fast paced market and condo building eligibility. Not only that but it would help the chances of your offer being accepted in this highly competitive market. Selling agents don't like to work with buyers that have prequel letters from banks that are out of town or national lenders unless they have had a personal experience with them.
The most commonly used mortgage vendors used in our area are Pinnacle, Investor Mortgage, Wells Fargo and NJ lenders.
Hope that helps!

Hi Rohit. You can get a conventional loan with 10% down but not without PMI.
You will certainly need to speak with a broker, I would recommend that over a large institutional lending bank like BOA or Wells.
I am not certain if your credit score is the reason you are being quoted FHA products.
If you can avoid buying FHA by increasing your credit then I would suggest you go that route as it will open many properties for you to consider as opposed to FHA where there are only a handful of buildings with FHA blanket approval.
Feel free to try Michael Mundy from Pinnacle mortgage. They do an incredible amount of business in the immediate area.

Best of luck!

Hi Eisen, you should expect about 45 minutes from Hoboken, if there is an accident on 78 maybe longer.

On or about 8/15 means they and you have till 9/15 to close, so you do not have any unexpected housing costs until now. Since you are not paying for a mortgage, homeowner's insurance or real estate tax what will be your unexpected housing expense? Do you know if they can ever get a CO?
