You should ask yourself a few questions first. How far, time wise, are you willing to commute? How much of a downpayment can you put down? How is your credit?

There are several lovely communities in Long Island, as well as in Queens, that would have some homes in or near your price range. With today's low mortgage rates, you can get much more for your monthly payment, than in the past. Real estate taxes must also be a consideration, because that will have a bearing on your monthly payment, as well.

In terms of school systems, there are many excellent school systems. There are ratings and descriptions of most of them online.

Think about accessability to mass transit, convenience and cost of commuting, as well. A professional realtor could be of great assistance.

Hi Carol,

Often times, when one homeowner puts their home on the market, someone else nearby will put theirs up as well. I know of nothing wrong with Old Highway 28 in Whitehouse Station that would cause a mass exodus of homeowners. As a matter of fact, market conditions are getting better and better for sellers and many sellers are now feeling that it's finally time to put their home on the market. In this area, there's actually a shortage of homes on the market. Are you thinking of moving out to these parts? I'd be more than happy to show you homes in this area. Give me a call at 908-334-0437. ... more

An option is to take Bus 194 from High Street to Port Authority, then subway C to Spring St and walk from there. Check out NJ Transit site for itinerary and ticket options: You can type into From: Butler, NJ To: Canal Street, NY. For pricing, you can click on Ticket Options or call NJ Transit. Hope this helps!

Javier Meneses answered:
Another broker? Sounds like a mess. You should really reconsider the people you're trusting with your mortgage if you feel that they are not handling it responsibly.

This is a refinance that should take 3-4 weeks all together.

Sometimes it takes a bit to update from the other resources Trulia gets info for.

The best bet is having an agent look it up on the MLS for the most up to date information on pricing and the status of a home.

Let me know if you have questions.

All depends on your budget and credit. Legally an agent or landlord can not say they will not accept Section 8 flat out, but there are other factors that would allow them to refuse such as number of people in your party, income levels, credit scores/report, etc. ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
The combination of the Housing Crisis and the Patriot Act have made the process of Buying and getting a loan, more intense.

The Banks are working for the Government in that they want to identify Money Launderers.
The Banks are working for themselves in that they don't want to repeat their past mistakes.

Don't look at it as baring your soul: look at it as you-have-no-choice!

Tim Moore answered:
Rent to owns are filled with problems and rarely ever work out. To make it work you MUST get a loan in a year or two or you LOSE all deposits and option money you put up. If there is a reason you can't get a loan now, why do you think you can in a year? Most people that can't now can't then either and then you lose money and start all over less the deposit you lost. Owner financing is not going to be as low as a bank is currently offering, so again why would you do it if you can get a loan and if you can't get a loan do you want to be paying someone 7-10% when your bank would offer under 4.5%?

Just rent and buy when you really can buy.

Good luck
