The combination of the Housing Crisis and the Patriot Act have made the process of Buying and getting a loan, more intense.

The Banks are working for the Government in that they want to identify Money Launderers.
The Banks are working for themselves in that they don't want to repeat their past mistakes.

Don't look at it as baring your soul: look at it as you-have-no-choice!

Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are created by electric power charges. There are 2 types of fields: electric fields or voltage fields.Studies have suggested, BUT NOT CONCLUSIVELY PROVEN, a correlation between exposure to EMFs and a higher-than-normal incidence of leukemia & certain cancers. Several studies point to health hazards among children who live close to power lines & among people who are exposed to high levels of EMFs at their jobs. For every scientist who believes that EMFs cause health problems, another disagrees.
I can tell you from first hand experience - there is a golf course out here in West Texas that has part of the back 9 holes running under those electrical towers. When I paly under them, I can feel the electric charge in my clubs, on the golf cart & a vibration through my body. Needless to say, I only play the front 9 on that course!

Garrett Mountain is closer to Woodland Park and Clifton than the rest of Paterson.
Also Hillcrest section on Paterson that Garrett Mountain is closest to is also a very nice area.

Speak to a lender to find out if you can borrow money and how much. Then speak to a Realtor about what that amount can buy in the area you want to live. Go from there.

Don Tepper answered:
You may have difficulty finding someone "to provide access to the MLS." I don't know what the requirements of the MLS in your area are. But where I am (Washington metro area), you have to be an agent, appraiser, or some other approved category to access the MLS. If someone were to simply give you their user name and password, they could lose their MLS privileges.

It is possible for a non-licensed individual to be an agent's "assistant" and gain access, but the criteria are still strict. In short, you may have a problem gaining direct access.

One suggestion: Check with the investors you work with. They undoubtedly use real estate agents when selling their properties. Ask them for some suggestions. That'll do two things: (1) Help you quickly locate investor-friendly agents, and (2) Give you a lot more credibility when you try to wholesale a deal to investors. If the investor already uses that agent (or is familiar with that agent and has confidence in his/her abilities), then that investor is far more likely to trust the comps generated by that agent.

Hope that helps.

Gina answered:

Sure, a realtor is able to show you any home in the MLS. In the transaction, the listing agent on the property represents the sellers and your agent represents you.

Good Luck to you!

You just want to know what the annual taxes are? A realtor with access to the public records can pull that information up for you.

CCC answered:
Because the buyer had bad experiences on bidding wars. Losing the bidding war.
Because really, really, really wants the property.
Because needs a place to live soon and do not want to rent.
Because it is an action.
Because there is a feling that the property is worth more than listing price.

Jillian Mason answered:
I used to live in Milltown in Middlesex County. It's a very cute small town with lots of activities and shops along North Main St. The north side of Milltown has a lot of older homes with charm that rarely come on the market, and the south side has a lot of 2 bedroom bungalows that were built for the workers who came to work at the Michelin Tire Factory. Very safe town, good elementary schools, and the kids go to the high school in Spotswood, the next town over. The biggest problem you'll have is finding a home there since there are only about 15 listed right now. Good luck!
