Downtown JC Weekly Stats Report With New And Active Listing Details



Downtown Jersey City Weekly statistics from Hoboken Real Estate Monitor.

Hoboken's Weekly Statistics will continue to be posted on Thursday mornings.  Downtown JC stats will be posted on Fridays.   In addition to posting them, the latest version will be available through the Weekly Statistics Icon on the right vertical nav bar. 


Here is the link to the Downtown Jersey City statistics:


Downtown JC Stats


The statistics contain links to the listings that compiled the price per square foot so you can see exactly what amenity and finish level are included.  They contain live links to all Active, Under Contract and Sold listings.

Each week the new listings for the week will be in separate links by neighborhood so you can quickly see what came on the market in a given week.  

The Downtown Jersey City Statistics are broken down  at the neighborhood level:
  • Newport/Pavonia
  • Hamilton Square
  • Harsmis Cove
  • Powerhouse District
  • Van Vorst Park
  • Liberty Harbor
  • Harborside
  • Paulus Hook
  • Western Edge

The first rule in real estate is location, location, location.  By breaking down the downtown areas into neighborhoods, you get a much finer understanding of the price per square in the specific area where you are looking .

If you use price per square foot as a measure, it really tells you which areas are more sought after than others.  The more desirable - convenient to public transportation, restaurants and shops, etc. - the higher the price per square foot.  Likewise, if you are willing to go to an up and coming area v an established neighborhood, you can get more space for your money.

Staging can make the difference between selling your place in a timely manner, selling your place at the highest and best price.


“Home staging” is not a new term, but for many homeowners and real estate agents the concept of “professional home staging” is shedding new light on how to promote a home in the real estate marketplace. In past years, homeowners were left to their own discretion as far as preparing for home showings. Though they could occasionally rely on an agent for instructions, more often than not real estate agents were just as perplexed at working out the details as the homeowner.

While agents are experts in the field of selling and closing, many are not design savvy. Agents usually know exactly what factors can help sell a home. It’s just not always easy to get a home into selling condition in a timely manner without some sort of experienced assistance.

Professional home stagers are practiced in the art of preparing a home for resale. They work with the “flow” of a home, eliminate clutter, edit and arrange furniture, and even assist in enhancing curb-appeal. With the aid of a professional home stager, your house can make a notable first impression on potential homebuyers.

First Impressions
As the real estate industry often stresses, the first impression is the key factor in selling your home. Typically,” says Jan Van Horne of Coldwell Banker Burnet Realty in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, “a potential buyer has made up their mind ten seconds after they step in the front door. They were already forming an opinion as they pulled into your driveway!” That really doesn’t leave too much room for fault.

“To achieve the greatest possible outcome,” Jan adds, “a home should always be presented at its best the first time around.”

Finding a Professional
You find and select a professional home stager much like you would find any other professional service. Ask around and get referrals. Check with your real estate agent. A number of larger real estate companies offer access to a listing of professional home services in your area. These individuals and companies have often already been pre-screened by the real estate agencies or their agents.

How Much Does it Cost?
When you contact a home stager, ask for an estimate. Most home staging businesses will be happy to give you a free estimate and it is usually a quick process. Keep in mind that this is only an estimate and estimates can be a bit off. However, unless something unforeseen takes place between the estimate and the actual job itself, an estimate should be fairly accurate.

Get several free estimates and make some calculations. Just like any service, pricing in the home staging industry can vary over a wide range. Some charge an hourly rate and some will charge you a set fee for the entire job. Be sure to ask how they determine their fee so that you can make an educated decision. Also, factor in the condition of your home, the average amount of time homes have been on the market in your area, and the asking price of your home.

Asking price can play a huge factor in what a homeowner should be willing to pay for staging services. Some professional home stagers bring in rented furnishings, driving the price up considerably. Some simply charge too much to make it pay off. A lot of home stagers seem to forget that their clients are planning on moving out of the house very soon. Most home sellers are not willing to invest a huge amount of cash in a house they are planning on leaving behind.

Find out up front what the stager is planning to bring in and at what cost. Though expert services do come at a price, the cost should balance with the expected benefit of a higher selling price. As a rule, the higher the asking price of the home, the more one can spend to have it professionally staged.

What are the Steps for Getting a Mortgage?


Many of my readers have asked me about the mortgage process and what they can expect.  As part of my banking career, I spent 6 years in Chase's Mortgage Division Among other roles I worked as a loan officer and underwriter in Chase's Wealth and Affluent Segment closing over $750MM in mortgage loans or about $1B in real estate transactions.  Oddly, I am not licensed as a mortgage broker because when you work for a big company, you don't need a license.  As opposed to most brokers, I was not in sales but did the actual financial statement analysis, bureau, appraisal, etc review to determine if an applicant could qualify.  I think it makes me a good resource as a counterpoint to your mortgage provider.  I can cut through the jargon and give you answers from someone who is indifferent on which product you take or whether or not you pay discount or origination points (one you can write off as interest which they can't take into income immediately.  The other is a basically a fee ie not interest that they get to book immediately.  Ask me if you want to know more.)

I was able to get a Good Faith Estimate and HUD1 from a very good broker here in town - Marc Kleinman of Bank of America.  I have his contact info and bio below.  This is an actual Good Faith Estimate (GFE) and HUD1 from a transaction here in Hoboken (with all personal data removed of course).  It shows the actual fees on what you can expect for a $620K mortgage transaction ($775K purchase price).

The GFE gives you the estimate of charges that you can expect while the HUD1 is the actual settlement document that has the exact charges.  The HUD1 is one of your closing documents.

At a high level the mortgage process is as follows:

1.  Pre-Approval - Get pre-approved so that you know what can afford in terms of both a purchase price and monthly mortgage payment.  This will be helpful when bidding as if there is more than one bid, the seller will want to know that you actually have the means to purchase the property.  Getting a mortgage is a typical contingency of the sale and the owner doesn't want to accept an offer from someone who ultimately can't go through with the deal.

Pre-qualifying is different from pre-approval in that pre-qualifying is when you give a loan officer or input information online to a calculator where it accepts your word from your income, debt, assets, etc. as is.

A pre-approval means that they have at least pull your credit bureau so they will know exactly what your debt burden is and your credit score.  Some institutions will also ask for a pay stub and a W-2 to verify your income before giving a pre-approval letter so that both your debt and income are documented.

With these two pieces, the bank can calculate your "Debt to Income" (D/I) ratio.  It's a measure of how much debt you can handle.  Your FICO (Fair Isaacs Company - company that invented the algorithm) score from your bureau tells the bank who well you have paid on existing debts as an indicator of how well you will pay on the new mortgage.  We all know the higher the score the lower the rate.  Since the mortgage meltdown, generally, scores over 700 are considered "A" credit.  Qualifying Debt to Income ratios have also come down as a result of the crisis.  It used to be 33% Housing debt to income and 38% overall debt to income ratio were the standard.  These ratios are often referred to as front end and back end D/I ratios.  The credit bureau fee was $35.

This step is where you, the borrower, are approved.  Sometimes there is an app fee and sometimes not.  In this loan they paid $715 "Origination Fee" which is a basically an app fee based on the size of the loan, ie a percentage of the loan.  Again, if it was a discount point, it would be on the HUD1 as pre-paid interest and would be tax deductible (consult your tax advisor). 

2.  The next step is finding the home - making an offer and Attorney Review.  When you put in a bid on a home the realtor will help you complete a purchase sale agreement.  All Realtors have access to a state approved form that we can complete.  This document contains your offer amount and any contingencies such as the ability to get a mortgage and getting a satisfactory inspection.  Once the bid is accepted by the seller by signing and returning the purchase sale agreement, the contract goes into Attorney Review.

Prudential Real Estate and Relocation has Sponsored the America Blu Sailing Team


I thought I would share a little fun news. In my off time, I sail and this year I was able to get Prudential Real Estate and Relocation i.e., 'Corporate' to sponsor my sailing team - America Blu.

America Blu is a 501C-3 that offers a free racing clinic targeted to women who want to advance in competitive sailing in addition to racing on Tuesday nights in New York Harbor.

I started sailing in my 20's when I moved to NYC and just wanted to be outdoors.  It's a male dominated sport and it was really difficult to find a path from novice to competent sailor. I found my way but then decided to start America Blu to pass it forward. I am now the team captain and driver.

It's a great way to connect with others if you are new in town. It develops teamwork and leadership skills and it's a great way to stay active.

For those who commute by ferry to NYC, look for my boat on Tuesday nights starting after Mother's Day. We will have a Prudential branded spinnaker.
