Downtown Jersey City Condos Sales & Activity – Week of February 10th, 2011
HobokenRealEstateNews recognizes that our readership extends beyond our fair city’s one mile boundries. Hoboken buyers are often interested in what their money will buy in the downtown Jersey City market, just as Jersey City sellers often wish to reach out to affluent Hoboken buyers (and vice versa.) As such, we now publish the Jersey City Weekly Thursday Wrap-Up (WTWU) and we’ve expanded our popular Hoboken Open House Google Map to include downtown JC as well.
I’m still happy to send you comps if you are appealing your own taxes. Keep in mind that the City has a 15% margin of error. If your assessment does not multiply out to at least 15% over the current market value of your property, you are not likely to be successful in an appeal. The “upper limit” multiplier for Hoboken is .3407. To see where you are at, take your assessed value and divide by .3407. For example, if your assessed value is 175,000, the result would be $513,648. Your property value must be less than $513k to win.
