The Weekly Thursday Wrap Up – Downtown Jersey City Condo Sales & Activity for the Week of June 9th

Downtown Jersey City Condos Sales & Activity – Week of June 9th, 2011

Look Out Jersey City – We’re Coming Your Way!

Dirty Dishes in Sink
In the next week or two – as soon as we get the tech end of things worked out – we will be launching JerseyCityRENews.com.  Downtown Jersey City will have its own blog, a sister to HobokenRealEstateNews.com.  We will let you know when its up and running.

I did Howie a favor today, as he is typically the one who prepared the Jersey City weekly report, and did this for him.  My horror at seeing the details of the Downtown Jersey City listings is beyond words. What do you think of these actual photos from JC listings:stuff on bed

1.  Dirty Dishes in Sink

This is one of my favorites because not only do you get the clutter on the counter and the stuff on the stove but there is an excellent view of the dirty dishes in the sink.

2.   Bedroom

Another winner with an unmade bed and a good shot of the box spring.  Note the item of clothing tossed on top of the sheets.  Now come on, how hard is it for the agent who took this photo to clear off the bed?storage bins

3.  Storage Bins

I love this shot of the empty room except for the pile of storage bins in the corner.

The part of all this that I find most appalling is that the agency representing the seller in these photos (these units actually sold) and others just like them often make over $10,000 for their work on the sale.  Does this look like the quality of work that deserves that sort of compensation?  I know what I think but I wonder what you all think.

We see an opportunity in Jersey City to serve sellers.  We believe that if sellers are going to pay to have an agent representing them, they deserve outstanding representation and quality work of a professional caliber.  Look out Jersey City – we are coming your way!
