Stunning Hoboken Brownstones – Jewels of the NYC Metro Area at a Fraction of the Price!

April 12, 2011

Owning a Victorian brownstone home is the dream of many that live in Hoboken and the NYC Metro area.  They are truly the jewels of many neighborhoods.

Big, grand homes of an era gone by, now prized for being able to accommodate growing families by offering them multiple bedrooms and bathrooms, large yards and a style that blends modern touches with unique historic details.

Most Hoboken brownstones can be had at a fraction of the price when compared to similar homes in Manhattan and many parts of Brooklyn.  Not only can one save money but often one can save time with an even easier commute into many parts of New York City.  All of this is available without sacrificing a vibrant city environment.

These Hudson Street Brownstones are some of the finest.  Many have been updated with modern amenities such as gourmet kitchens and central air conditioning while retaining the details that give them their unique qualities.

So if you’re thinking of buying a large condo…see if perhaps one of these jewels might be the right fit for you!

Buying a Hoboken condo? Make sure you ask this important question!

April 8, 2011

Imagine spending the first night in your new Hoboken luxury condo.  You know, the one you’ve just spent upwards of $600,000 or more for.

Tired from your move and the celebratory toast from the bottle of champagne that your REALTOR gave you at closing, you look forward to the first nights rest in your new home.

As you slip into a peaceful sleep, suddenly you’re awakened at 1am.

Thunk!…Bang!…..Crunch!…..Grind!….Bang!…Boom!   OMG…what the #*%@ is that!

Those my friends are the wonderful sounds of the garbage collection at your luxury condo building.

These are the sounds I experience 6 nights a week at my luxury condo.  I happen to be on the 8th floor and it’s rather loud.

Now I’ve been a city boy all of my life and I’m not particularly sensitive to these noises. However I knew this BEFORE moving into my home.

Someone just went into contract (not my deal) at a unit on the 2nd floor.  I’m sure it’s really loud on that level.  I wonder if they were told about this.

So remember to ask.

“Where is the garbage collected, how often and at what time?”

An experienced agent should know or find this out for you.  This way you’ll be better able to choose the right home for yourself!

30 Day Hoboken Condo Market Snapshot. Not to Shabby!

April 5, 2011

In the last 30 days, 66 Hoboken condos went into contract, a drop from the same period in 2010 however these numbers are going against the buying frenzy caused from the Home Buyer Tax Credit that was in effect during the spring market of last year.

To me, this indicates a robust, balanced market as we have 365 condos currently for sale on the Hudson County Multiple Listing Service. If we divide this by the 66 condos that went into contract in the last 30 days, we have 5.5 month inventory at current sales pace (Absorption Rate).

An absorption rate that’s between 3-6 months is typically defined as a balanced market whereas above 6 months is a buyers market and below 3 months is a sellers market.

Here’s the stats:
Total contracts last 30 days: 66 -15.3% from same period 2010
Avg asking price: $524,803 -2.72% from the $539,521 average asking price in 2010
Median asking price: $489,500 + 2.14% from the $479,000 average median price in 2010

The most expensive condo to go into contract is a 1865 sqft 2 bed, 2 den, 2.5 bath at Maxwell Place. On the opposite side, the lowest priced unit to go into contract was a 453 sqft studio at 1015 Washington St.

I welcome any questions that you have for your particular condo.
