Hoboken is full of fun family events, and one that's definitely not to be missed is the Hoboken Rag-a-Muffin Parade & Costume Contest 2011! Part parade, part costume contest and 100% fun for everyone! All the families trick or treat afterwards with most of the stores along Washington St participating. Get into the spirit and have a great time. The Hoboken Rag-a-Muffin Parade & Costume Contest is a popular annual event in our town. The children look forward to it not only for the fun and candy but as a way to “test drive” their Halloween costumes. For parents, it’s a cross between a community-wide play date and a chance to have a nice outing with the family while catching up with their friends. The local stores see it as a great way to contribute to the spirit of community Hoboken is so ...

Have you ever wanted to see the inside of one of Hoboken’s beautiful Victorian homes? How about getting a closer look at one of our truly unique condominiums? Well, here is your chance! The Hoboken House Tour is scheduled for October 23rd from 10:00 AM till 4:00 PM. It is justifiably known as one of the better home tours on the East Coast. There are normally eight to ten homes opened to the public for this tour.Each year there is a different collection of homes, so just because you may have gone on the tour in the past, don’t think you’ve seen it all. Working as a full-time real estate agent in Hoboken for the past 10 years has brought me into many of these fantastic homes. In fact, one of my homes was on the tour in 1998. However, there are usually 3-4 that I haven't had the pleasure o...

http://www.crossegyptchallenge.com/the_team.html I am going to Egypt!  As I told you before I bought a scooter over the summer and have been enjoying it immensely.  I was sent a link to do this ride, and I filled out the application, and to my surprise they called me!  Being a New Yorker I am curious what the selection criteria was, which I will surely pester my hosts when I get there!   We will be riding from Alexandria Egypt to Abu Simbel by SCOOTER!  What a great way to see Egypt, this is being sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism to show the beauty of Egypt and also promote scooters as an alternate means of transportation.  Wish me luck, I'll be leaving on October 10, 2011 until October 24 2011.

Hoboken Parking: Extended Hours To Better Serve You   This town gets better by the day. The always conscientious and considerate parking HPU is extending its hours to serve the community. First a bank open 7 days a week and now the HPU protecting our streets from parking offenders until 2am. It is apparent that the HPU is hearing the community loud and clear. Just the other day I am in line at Stop and Shop and I overheard two guys complaining that meter maids seem to just disappear at 8:59pm. How ridiculous when the meters run until 9pm. There's never any place to park after 9pm. Now Lovely Rita will be on the beat until 2am and it's only a matter of time that the meters will be extended until the new close. Why shouldn't those out of town clubbers feel the pain of running out and pump...

What is Foreclosure? To different people it means different things, and I realize there is a lot of confusion about this topic even among Realtors. I am not an attorney, nore a finance guru, but as a residential real estate consultant with foreclosure specific specialization, I will attempt to make a little order in the chaos. The following is a simplified explanation for clarity purposes. Let us set a scenario. Dave bought a brand new home and moved in. At first he was paying the monthly mortgage payments on time and in full. After the first year however Dave's dog got sick, and he had to deplete his savings in order to pay the veterenary medical expenses. Soon there after his car died, and since his occupation required reliable transportation, he begrudgingly bought a new car through ...

I gottatell you, I am still amazed at the power of Craigslist.  I have been keeping a relatively low key since the middle of July, not really posting, just laying low.  Truth is even though I didn't post any ads on Craislost, I still managed to do 12 deal between July 13 and the end of August, not bad at all I think.  I was just taking some 'me' time so to speak, there were no issues. Today I went back in and began posting earnestly again, I got 14 calls and 6 solid leads out of those calls.  I am still amazed the power that Craigslist has, I mean I know it is a powerful tool, but I am always the cynic and thinking about a world without Craigslist, even in my personal life I use it a lot.  I bought my 'new' toy--my scooter from there.  I found a little old lady in Albany, got a great de...

Now that Hurricane Irene is history here in Hoboken, NJ, it's time to try to get back to normal. The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management offers tips on what to do in the event of a hurricane. Most people have begun to return home now that Irene is over. If you are returning to your Hoboken, NJ home, you may want to keep these tips in mind: Return home only after you are told that it is safe to do so. Watch out for downed power lines – stay away from them and report them to the authorities. Use caution when entering your home. Beware of animals driven to higher ground by flood water. Open windows and doors to air out your home. Do not use candles or other open flames – use flashlights. Inspect the utilities in your home for damage. Let a friend or relative know that you have return...

Hoboken, NJ. I love the town where I live and work, Hoboken, NJ, I really do.  It has a fantastic location with easy access into Manhattan, beautiful New York City and Hudson river views, an abundance of restaurants, nightlife, shopping etc., all the things people are looking for in an urban environment. What I love most however is our sense of community.  Yes, there's always room for improvement, in any aspect in life for that matter.  Last Tuesday I was flying to a real estate conference in Los Angeles.  That was the day of the earthquake in Virginia which was felt in New Jersey.  Later in the week came all of the concern over the impending Hurricane, Irene. Although I was not in town, I received numerous notifications via cell phone and email regarding preparations and updates.  My ...

In a recent study by Lender Processing Services (LPS), 6.38 million people were at least 30 days late on their mortgage payments. According to online data tracker RealtyTrac, Hoboken shows to have 72 properties that fall within this pre-foreclosure status. Additionally, there are 14 bank-owned properties and 5 sheriff sales in town.   I've placed a free list of the most common alternatives to foreclosures that homeowners can take advantage of to get back on the path to financial stability on my website:   http://foreclosureshudsoncounty.com/   The sooner one begins the process of developing a strategy, the better the chances one can avoid foreclosure.   If you do not wish to receive future emails, please click the link to Unsubscribe: Unsubscribe.

The Hoboken condo market supply has dropped to just over 4 months (4.36 month supply) based upon the most recent 30-Day Hoboken Condo Market Absorption Rate, a significant drop from the previous weeks rate which was at 5.22 months.     This is the rate where the total condo inventory that is presently on the market for sale would be "absorbed" by the pace of units placed under contract within the last 30 days as of 8/19/11.   Many buyers are surprised by the amount of activity we are presently seeing in the Hoboken condo market. It's important that my customers and clients are up-to-date with the most recent information so that they can be ready to respond appropriately when they find a home that they want to make a move on. That's my goal with providing these timely reports!   Here is ...

Congratulations! You're ready to close on your new Hoboken home. Are you also ready for the costs that go with closing? Find out how to be prepared for closing costs.  Ask the seller to pay the closing costs. Before you make your offer on the home, ask your agent if it's possible to ask the seller to pay some, or even all, of the closing costs. Eager sellers are often willing to do so. On the other hand, some buyers will offer a higher bid on the home in exchange for the seller paying closing costs. Make sure you understand the Good Faith Estimate. Your lender must provide you, within three days of your loan application, a Good Faith Estimate. This document spells out, among other things, a description of your closing costs. You should read it carefully, and make sure you understand wha...

Sales of pervious occupied homes fell in June for a third straight month for a seasonally adjusted 4.77 million. The pace is lagging behind the 4.91 million homes sold last year – THE FEWEST SINCE 1997. New home sales also declined in June and are trailing last year sales, which were the worst on records dating back nearly ½ century. On the up side: The average rate on a 15-20-30 year fixed mortgage has fallen to its lowest level in decades.
