reassessment is to make sure everyone is paying a fair share of property taxes.

there may be some homes that were improved but are still paying a low tax. these people will see an increase in taxes.

there are some homes that have done many improvements and they are paying more taxes than others. these homes will see a decrease in taxes.

Most homes will not see any increase or decrease.

There will be people walking around the neighbor and asking to go in every home so they can see how many bathrooms and baths you. If you have a finished basement, if you have a deck and or pool. Central A/C. These are the items that can effect your assessment value

if you are a member of the local association, then part of your dues goes to pay your national membership. Can't be one without the other.

To be honest it would be very difficult to determine if one is better than the other because all the elementary schools in East Brunswick use the same criteria for programs and hiring teachers. Also with the Elementary school attendence being dependent on region, if you favored one over the other, that would mean you would have to purchase a home in that region. Best of luck and if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate. ... more

GMS_Buyer, welcome to Trulia! Both of these communities were built by the same builder, K. Hovnanian. What you will notice is many of the units in both communities have very similar, if not the same floor plans, so many of the models you see in one community can be replicated in the other.

The main differences between this community and others in East Brunswick, and the surrounding areas, is they were built during a period when community features were popular and not being decided based on the financial component. Therefore both communities offer a Club House, Pool, Tennis Courts, & Playgrounds; many features not found within other communities in town.

As for the exact schools, elementary varies and you will need to reach out to the township for exact details. More info for the elementary schools can be found at:

Middle school will be Hammarskjold, Junior High School with be Churchill, and the High School of course will be East Brunswick High School.

As for commuting to NYC, East Brunswick does have two bus lines that run out of the town, Suburban & NJ Transit. The two main pickup points are behind the Sam's Club Complex off Route 18 / Old Bridge Turnpike and the Hilton Hotel /Cffice Complex off Route 18. There are also a few stops along Route 18 like West Ferris Road, Mid State Mall, etc.

Either way, I think you will enjoy either community, you just have to determine which location suits you better. I lived in Country Woods & Kingswood Station for over 15 years and loved it because the location is great and the community feel is unsurpassed in town. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Tim Moore answered:
If the offer was signed and accepted they can't walk away, but they can sure tell you NO to anything you ask of them. They have agreed to sell for the contracted amount but you are asking for things not addressed in the offer and the owner (the bank since it is no longer a foreclosure, that has passed) can say NO, NO, No and banks are well known for that. They pretty much sell their homes as-is which means take it or leave it but we will not make repairs or anything else.

It's not possible to determine the maximum loan amount based on the information provided. You should speak with a local loan officer.

That would be a good question for your loan officer, if you have not done so, meet with a local and trusted loan offcier who can guide you through the process.

Mary Petti answered:

Hopefully you have an attorney because usually the bank will NOT allow the sellers in a short sale to keep pushing back the closing date. Banks usually give no more than 30 days for you to get a mortgage and close once the short sale is approved . Sometimes they will give a 2-3 week extension but no more than that.

I would have your attorney check with the sellers attorney and get some sort of written proof that the BANK has authorized these delays. I have a sneaking suspicion that there may be more to this than the sellers just not finding a place to live. Get on the phone with your attorney ASAP.

If they bank did indeed allow these long delays in closing, you may just have to pay to extend your loan lock. One of the many pitfalls in buying a short sale property.
