The Weekly Wednesday Wrap Up – Hoboken Condo Sales & Activity for the Week of March 9th

Hoboken Condos Sales & Activity – Week of March 9th, 2011

Many of you know that I’m a cyclist for both transportation and fun, and that we ran a bike touring company, La Corsa Tours, for many years.  So this is a subject near and dear to my heart.  If you would all be so kind as to take two minutes and fill out a little survey to help Bike Hoboken I would greatly appreciate it.  You can learn more about what we’re up to at BikeHoboken.com.

There were only 2 properties that needed a price reduction before going under contract this week.  I was personally involved in 2 situations involving multiple bids in recent days and had a third property go under contract before I could even show it.  Does that mean prices are hitting the sweet spot?  Maybe.

I found it interesting to read NJ.com’s piece about the improvement in Hudson County real estate.  They didn’t provice much in the way of substantive support for their opinion.  The February numbers would seem to indicate otherwise.

Finally, happy Mardi Gras (I know, I’m a day late).  Laissez le bon temps rouler!

Tax Appeals – Time is Running Out!

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 an appeal. You can get more details on tax appeals and forms at the Hudson County Tax Board website.

The Weekly Wednesday Wrap Up – Hoboken Condo Sales & Activity for the Week of February 16th

Hoboken Condos Sales & Activity – Week of February 16th.

Hello 500+ Hoboken condos for sale. No big surprise. What did surprise me is how many of the sold units (and dabo’s) were sold without price reductions – except, of course, the Garden St. Lofts. Look at some of the other 2 and 3 bedrooms that sold. They were fairly expensive units and they all went pretty quickly and not much below the list price. Maybe it’s a flight to quality? Well, Mardi Gras has come and gone and now is supposed to be the season to repent and renew. Maybe the housing market will also start to revive during this period and we will see a happy Spring.

Want to Receive New Listings & Price Reductions Daily?

If you would like to be emailed the new listings and price reductions each weekday in either 1br, 2br or 3br categories just email us at [email protected] letting us know which size(s) you would like and we’ll add you to the daily email list.
A word about that – if you have an ongoing relationship with another agent we are not going to email you listings. You can ask your own agent to do that. So what is an ongoing relationship? Is that not up to you? Have you been working with another agent on a regular basis? More importantly, are you happy with that agent’s service? If so,we respect that relationship.
If all you did is attent an open house or you’ve seen several properties with several different agents, that’s not an ongoing relationship. Despite what some agents in town would like to have you believe, simply showing a buyer a single property, or even a few, does not a relationship make. You are the consumer – you get to decide with whom you wish to work. If you think the agent who hosted an open house or showed you a property is incompetent or does not meet your needs why would you ever use that person as your agent? Unless you’ve signed a “buyers agency agreement”, which is highly unusual in Hoboken, find an agent you like, trust and whose advice you respect. It’s your money, no?
For more information you can always contact us at 201 993 9500.
