Driving to Harrison and taking the Path is the fastest way. I did it for years and tried them all.

Nicoa,

Our best advice is to plan a trip that would focus on getting a feel for the various options that exist in the US. There are many very desirable locations that I' sure would include ex pats.

One of the common mistakes made by buyers is relying too heavily on the opinions of others when making their decision. The best resource is still YOU. So, plan a trip, not for the purpose of looking a specific homes to purchase but one for the specific purpose of gathering information that will equip you to make the decision that is best for your needs.

Many of your countrymen have settled in south Florida and love it here. Be sure to include this location on your adventure.

Best wishes,
The Eckler team

Ummm, no.

You have no idea how filthy these houses can be. Dead animals, live animals, roaches, lots of live roaches, crawling insects of all kinds in 90 degree temperatures, rotting food, human excrement, noxious odors and substances that will make your hair curl. And oh yes, dead bodies. Or worse, live bodies, druggies and other squatters.

These are some of the things I run into every day in being one of the early visitors to a foreclosed home. Most of the action is in the urban slums, so you had better be comfortable hanging out in some bad neighborhoods. It can be frightening, but I've gotten used to it. I go in jeans and a hoodie to blend in. I keep my head down and my crowbar close by.

Also the trash-out guys usually get to board the house up, so you need a truck, access to cheap plywood, and the physical wherewithal to undertake that task, again in 15 degrees in January or 95 degrees in July.

You are also competing with landscapers and other out-of-work types who will work cheap.

I'd look for another opportunity.

-Marc

Joe Pieretti answered:
The commute is about 40 minutes on the train. You also have to take into consideration where you live in Montville and the commute to the train station. Some trains will go directly into New York Penn Station and others may require a transfer in Newark. We see you wrote this question in February. If you haven't purchased a property yet and would like additional information about Montville and/or the surrounding communities, we hope you'll take the opportunity to contact us, either at Jpieretti@aol.com or on our cell - 973-715-0321.

Thanks.

Joe and Gail
