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

Javier Meneses answered:
Mohammed, in general co-ops are looking at your financial documents (income, assets and credit). They'll be looking at what type of income you get, employment stability, and your overall situation. They want to make sure you're able to pay the monthly dues along with your mortgage, and in some unique and rear cases they want you to fit the profile of the co-op's residents. The last thing they want is for someone to move in and default.

What's the process? Begins with you meeting a Loan Officer and becoming pre-approved. I'm always available if you're in need of a Loan Officer experienced with co-ops. Good luck!

Hello VNP,

Buying a Co-op is not a bad idea. However, you should understand pros and cons of a Co-op. Obviously monthly maintenance is slightly higher but you have to see what it really includes.
For any further questions, feel free to contact me any time at my cell# 732-277-9321. I can provide you with better solutions on home buying.

Kate Reilly Lund answered:
No that is not correct. Brookhill has two sections that are divided by a landlocked section. One section of Brookhill Road is very close to the John Marshall School. There is one young home for sale there. The other section of Brookhill Road runs from Route 27 to that land locked section and has several residential homes. They are varied in size, value and age. Brookhill is in a nice residential section of South Edison, close to the Highland Park border.

Call me if you want to see this area and the homes that are available there.

Living close to the schools can mean a bit more traffic flow at the beginning and end of the school day, but as a parent and a realtor, I feel that the benefits of being close to the school out way the negative. As far as commotion, I would say that would be minimal at most. If the property happens to be right next to the school and you are home during the school day, then perhaps you may here the chatter of the children during gym/recess time, but other than that I believe there wouldn't be any commotion. ... more

North Edison does not have ANY condo developments that are walkable to the train. Typically North Edison residents use either Metuchen station or Metro Park Station, and most either drive and park, get driven or take a bus to the train.

South Edison does have a few communities that are walkable to the Edison Train Station, and Metuchen has a few that are walkable to Metuchen station.

Piscataway has a few units on the Edison/Piscataway border which are also walkable to the Edison Station. There are other units in Piscataway nearer the Bound Brook and Dunellen train station, but those are not really walkable either.

I live in Edison since 1983, raised my kids here, and my husband commuted to NYC since we got here. I know the town and surrounding towns (Piscataway included) very well and would love to be able to help you.

Give me a call at 908-675-0167 and I we can discuss your needs in more detail.

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.

Laquita Baez answered:
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
