If you are using a Realtor to buy a home why not ask him/her for at least three recommendations.
Tough is a relative term but most agents in the business for a while know who the good ones are based on their experience. ... more

Dear Worriedbuyer:

It all depends on what you are looking for. If you want easily rentable, I would sugget being next to a college area like Rutgers in New Brunswick. Other towns in the area that are popular for multi-family residences include Edison, South Amboy, Woodbridge, and Perth Amboy. Now minus Edison, the other three are not in the highest desirable areas when it comes to fine living but in areas with a high concentration of multi-family dwellings, this tends to be the case. Other options that are in nicer sections of Central NJ but not in horrible areas would include, North Brunswick, Old Bridge, Piscataway, Sayreville, Franklin, and a few others. If you want I can send you a list of what is currently available and you can see exactly what works from you, I would just need to know your criteria as far as budget, location, and timeframe. You can find all my contact information in my profile if you need it. Hopefully I can assist you. I look forward to speaking to you soon! ... more

Hi Vicky,

Millpoint condos have appeal because they are one of the lowest purchase points to get into Edison, which is a desirable destination for many buyers. The location is convenient to the NJ Turnpike, Route 287, Route 1, and the Garden State Parkway by way of Woodbridge Ave. (514). As far as crime stats, you're better off checking with the local police department or searching online.

Please let me know if there are any additional questions I can answer for you.

If the builders you got from Angies list are all quoting around the same amount then perhaps that's the price the renovations you want to do will cost.
From my understanding Angies list is a list of contractors independently reviewed by people who used them and recommend them as thorough and reliable.
Depending on what renovations you want to do the work can be expensive so your statement of "heavy cost" may be unfounded.
My suggestion is to ask some neighbors or friends who they used.
Please also remember that many interior home renovations also require permits and must meet town building code requirements which is one service your contractor will provide.

It truly depends on the actual community and area. While 3 bedrooms commonly may be more desireable, if the 2 bedroom is in a desirable community then it may rent out just as fast as a 3 bedroom.

Keep in mind when investing in condo/thome communities, you will want to check the HOA's ( homeowners association) guidelines about renting the units because they may have rental restrictions or caps that may limit your chances of renting out the unit. Or if their rental cap has been met then you may have to put on a waiting list to rent your unit which you can see will interfere with how soon you start seeing a return on your investment.

Find a Realtor that will guide you in the process and help you find sound investments.

Gil Lopez answered:
In 2010 the property taxes were $10,010. In 2011 they were $10,549 (an increase of 5.38%). In 2012 they were $10,664 (an increase of 1.09%). It is almost impossible to predict how much property taxes will increase by, but a safe bet is that they will go up. It is possible to file an appeal with the township but that has to be done by April 15. ... more

Armin Lusinyants answered:
Although they can be a sign of foundation settlement, vertical cracks in a foundation wall are not necessarily a sign of serious structural damage in your home. Vertical cracks are often caused by the shrinking of concrete as it cures; if the edges of a small crack feel even as you run your fingers along the sides, this is likely the reason why. However, it's always a good idea to have a professional look at the problem, so you can be sure that the problem is not major before it gets much worse.
Find a good structural engineer!

Best of luck,

Hi Sara,

Are you working with a buyer's agent that knows North Edison? If so, your agent should be able to give you an opinion on the market value for these properties. If you do not have an agent, I would be happy to discuss Woodbrook duplexes with you. I also do not believe that either of those properties are currently on the market.
