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.

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."
Well that budget can get you a pretty nice place in the right area. If you'd like give me a call 917.209.9391.
We can discuss if your looking for a condo or multi family dwelling. Loan options if you need a Pre approval etc. To give you an example, I have put some clients of mine in Port Liberte, Weehawken and West New York, all of which get them downtown quickly. There are a lot of different options, so if you'd like just reach out to me.... more
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.

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
An income would be a good start, but if you can establish some credit here then it would go a long way. If not you may be required to give additional security deposits. See if you can get a u.s. credit card and use it a little.... more
This sounds very much like the short sale deal I closed last year. Bank closed it several times. Bank "countered" at prices WELL above asking price. Lots of goofy stuff. But, 10 months from start to finish we closed on the house way below market value. That's not to say it will work out every time. It is definitely an art, rather than a science. Best of luck getting your deal done...... more
Sometimes it varies. Some landlord pay the commission for renting their apartments but mainly the tenant that is going to be moving in pays the rental commission. If your looking for an apartment I have about 30 apartments that the landlords cover the commission. Call me and let me know what your looking for 917.209.9391... more
It appears that this apartment is no longer available for sale, but is for rent only. If you are interested in purchasing, I can see if that would still be a possibility. Parking is available for $150 per month.... more

Well it sounds like Anthony you have no choice about selling unless you can rent your home and don't mind the responsibilities of being a landlord out of state.
Unless you purchased your home at a deep discount, the chances of you breaking even are slim. This would mean you would be forced to do a short sale and walk away with nothing. You do not have to be behind on your mortgage payment to do a short sale. Your hardship would your inability to carry two mortgages because your job requires you to relocate for example.
To find the right agent for you, ask friends, family members, coworkers and/or neighbors who they have used in the past and was happy with the service provided. Recently sold comps mean little in an agent's skill set. As a matter of fact, you mght really want to consider an agent with short sale experience because unfortunately you mgiht be heading in that direction. All the best.
Hi, I always recommend getting it done for peace of mind. It's typically part of the inspection and they give you a receipt showing it's either free of termites or has termites. You can always go back and have it done...Typically termites love warm dark places and if there are no wooden joists or any othewr wood on the foundation you are probably ok. I'm not an expert so make your own decision.
