If you are interested in possibly buying this property, what difference does it make who lived there in 1985? I'm not sure you'll find that answer here, on Trulia and I'm not sure what it matters to you who lived there back then. ... more

That is a complicated process. My question is why would you want to make an offer on a house you have never seen? My recommendation is to arrive in the US, contact a real estate professional who can show you the house and then, if you like it, assist you in making an offer. best of luck! ... more

Unlikely you'll get any input here on Trulia - for questions like this you might want to inquire of the local authorities or media/newspapers.

Hi Ibrahim,
I seriously doubt that any such program is in existance. No town that I know of offers assistance in home purchases. Call the Town to double check.
We do have low down payment options available through the FHA and HUD'S 203K plans however which you should become familiar with.
Good Luck,
Murph Plishtin

I don't think you are going to find the answer to that question on this website, at least not by real estate agents.
We can't presume to tell the public what is best for them since everybody's idea of "best" is different.
What you will probably get are a lot of agents who say "feel free to contact me for more information".
Good luck!

compared to what? If the taxes are high, you want to know the advantages of Hillside compared to town A, town B, Town C, etc... then you can decide if the addtional taxes are worth it based on that comparison.

I don't believe taxes should be the number one consideration when choosing a location. You will NEVER be happy with the high taxes you pay in NJ so you may as well get a location that will give you the other quality of life advantages that you seek... whatever they may be. For example, if you bought a home that didn't make you completely happy, would you be satisified if your taxes were 20% lower than a house in another location that WOULD have made you completely happy? Of course not.

My advice, make a list of priorities that you think will bring you hapiness... buy a home and a location that you best fits that list. Aside from being able to afford it, I'll bet property taxes are not all that high on your priority list. good luck
