The mortgage calculators online will give you a broad spectrum / approximate idea. What you should really do is go to a good mortgage broker and find out from horse's mouth as they are the one who will be ultimately land you money.

You need to get a pre-qualification letter form the lender, this not only will tell you your affordability but also will move things faster once you've selected the house... The sellers too are reluctant to take an offer from an unqualified buyer.

I can refer a really good mortgage agent, I myself have used in past if you want to start...

Call me on 609.903.8903 and I can guide you through...

Style, community amenities, walking to train, schools are all important to some people. If you are looking for a community with traditional style homes and a community pool and clubhouse, look at Le Parc. Sunrise is a walk to train and high school, contemporary style homes, some have be very undated, some need work, check it out. Stoney Brook is a mix of traditional and contemporary homes, a bit of a walk to high school, but not impossible. Be care of power lines in Stoney Brook. there are other areas of West Windsor that you may also consider, the schools are great and the Community Park w pool, tennis and a skate park are an extra bonus to living here. ... more

There are some great investment opportunites in the condo market right now in various areas.

Rentals are pretty solid in Middlesex county with low condo purchase prices that look to me to be a good 5 -8 year investment will bring a good return at a later date. Financial planner that does not see good investments in the rental market right now? HHmm.. Continue your due diligence, there are many good investments out there right now.

Email me and I will send some condo / townhouses that will generate a good overall return.

Barbara Smith answered:

You're going to get a flood of agents who will cut their fee to get the listing. As we all know, the fee is completely negotiable. A couple of points to keep in mind though:

With so many homes on the market and so many sellers who are willing to fully compensate their agents to get the home properly marketed and sold for the highest dollar amount in the shortest amount of time, why would a buyer's agent promote your property to his or her buyers and do the same amount of work for less compensation? Remember a large part of getting your home sold is to properly market it to other agents.

If an agent so easily cuts his rate to get your listing, how well can you possibly expect them to strongly negotiate on your behalf when an offer comes in or home inpsection issues arise? You clear one major hurdle to get an offer and acceptance, but keeping a transaction together until it closes, especially in this market, is not always so easy.

Just some things to keep in mind. You don't want to be penny wise and pound foolish. Hire a professional.

Good luck,

If you are currently not working with an agent of your own, consider the idea, he/she will best advise; if paying with a mortgage, keep in mind the lender will also do an appraisal of their own, however if you still wish to have a separate appraisal make sure the seller is aware, and is willing allow the appraiser into the home; if you do have an agent consider a consultation... ... more

Jeremy Robinson answered:
Its certainly doable if you're careful. Some hours obviously will be easier than others. The most traffic will be right on Alexander Rd when you're approaching the train station. If a car is completely out of the question then perhaps a bike would be your best bet. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to know more about the homes available right near the train station. I'd be happy to speak further via phone or email. There's quite a bit that I can send you within walking distance to the train (depending how long you'd like to walk). ... more

Jeanne Feenick answered:
HI Sufy, that is very much a matter of personal preference. What you are describing is the very real matter of compromise when it comes to evaluating property choices. Likely the location issues you describe are driving the value price that is drawing you to the property. Something that drives price now will do the same when you go to sell.

What matters most to you is a decision only you can make. This is the classic case of whether "house" or "location" is your primary driver. You can change a house, you cannot change a location. You will figure it out, trust your instincts.

What is your agent suggesting--there are no set standards as to how low one can offer--you need to be aware of recently sold similar properties in the immediate area--see what the data suggests as to a fair offer and go from there. ... more

Jeff Belonger answered:

I would love to help you or at least answer any questions regarding mortgages and to finance your new home purchase. I have been in the mortgage industry for over 17 years. I would love to do some scenarios for you regarding the FHA loan that you are requesting, just to show you the differences with 10% down, 5% down, and the minimum of 3.5% down. My 2 main concerns would be that you are comfortable with a certain mortggae payment and that you have some cash reserves left over, after putting x,y,z down.

I can be reached at 609-440-5133 up until 9 pm this evening or from 8 am until 8 pm tomorrow and throughout the week. I can also be contacted at I will also list one of my web sites that you can read up on some of my posts that I have done on FHA loans.

jeff PS... here is another site that I started with 7 other loan officers.

Christopher Lefebvre answered:
This is definitely a negative for the house and some buyers will steer clear because of this. Location is everything in real estate. This is a similar issue to a home that is right next to a busy highway or on a busy main road. It doesn't mean that the home won't sell down the road, it just means that your pool of prospective buyers may be smaller than if the home was in a more desirable location for example a low traffic quiet side street.

I recommend that before you buy the home, ask your buyer's agent to provide you with comps of similar homes that have recently sold that are also near the train tracks and compare these with similar homes that are not near the train tracks to try to see what the difference in prices are.

Good luck with your purchase and don't rush into anything. If possible, try to find a similar home in your price range that is in a more desirable location.
