It might be affected if you haven't made the last 4 payments!
Seriously, it will effect your DEBT/INCOME ratio.

Mack McCoy answered:
No, of course not.

Forgive us for not congratulating you on "finding the listing yourself," given that listing agents and brokers have invested incredible sums of money with the goal of getting their listing in front of every potential and prospective buyer in the world. There may have even been a sign in front of the building and arrows on the corner pointing to it.

It is not required by law anywhere that buyers - or sellers - be represented by a licensed real estate agent or broker. The fact that the seller IS represented by a licensed real estate agent or broker does not matter.

All the best,

Yes commissions can be negotiated with the broker. You are wise to offer a higher commission.

Depends upon the buyer but a Pre-school/ elem would likely be a plus for some . I wouldn't see it as a drawback excepting for traffic flow. This is definitely a "beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

Hi zakluv,

If you have already identified the property you would like to purchase, then I'd be more than happy to guide you with submitting an offer. The beginning process is as follows:

1. If purchasing with cash, you will need to submit a proof of funds document or statement from your bank showing you have the funds available to purchase.
If seeking a home loan of some sorts, we can discuss your options further.

2. A Good Faith Deposit will also need to be considered, which can be discussed further.

3. We can discuss the terms of the offer you would like to submit to the sellers and have a purchase
contract written up.

These are the basic steps to start off with, but what is most important is that you find a reliable
Realtor to assist you with market, housing, and neighborhood information since you made it clear you have never been to the U.S.

I am available to assist and discuss your real estate goals further.
Best with your endeavours!

Suzan Nanfeldt answered:
Margolin, The Gold Coast (Hudson and Bergen counties along the Hudson River) provide many opportunities to folks trying to enjoy a full life and the shortest commute possible into NYC. As a general rule, the further noth you go (and the farther you get from the entry points into the city--Lincoln Tunnel, PATH train, Light Rail), the better the prices. In real estate, location, condition, and competition are the only factors that matter!

That said, Edgewater will probably get you what you need for a one bedroom in the $2100-2500 range, but the utilities will likely be extra. You can find what you need at City Place, Independance Harbor, and a handful of rental buildings. If you want more for less money you'll need to look in Cliffside Park or Fort Lee on the top of the Palisades overlooking Edgewater. In most cases the utilities are only included in the older buildings.

I can help you with your search. North of Hoboken rentals are nearly all co-brokered, meaning that agents enter their listings into the MLS and any licensed professional agent can show you any property for rent by any company. Call me for more: 201-960-2833. I hope you enjoy a safe and successful move!

Amos Elroy answered:
Jersey City downtown has a lot more newer development than West New York, so a lot more of it is likely to be ADA compliant, however you should consider also the fact that parts of downtown, as well as Hoboken, are prone to flooding more so than West New York, which can be an even greater problem for someone relying on motorized, or even manual wheelchair.

On the whole, you need to weigh the daily convenience aspect with the significance of any major disruptions such as hurricanes Sandy and Irene have demonstrated. Personally, I am under the belief that such surges are going to occur at a higher frequency in the upcoming years and decades due to effects of Global Climate Change.

Kenneth Verbeyst answered:
at the right price its a great time to buy any property. safety is always a concern but is reflected both in the rents you can receive as well as the price you pay. If you are new to being a landlord I suggest staying in areas you know and close to where you live (makes it easier to collect rent or check on the property) If you cant afford where you live now try to stay with in about 20 minutes drive, other wise you begin to hate dealing with the hassles of being a landlord. Email me with further questions if you like. I own 4 homes (2 are 2 family) and have been a landlord since 1984. ... more
