There are plenty of reasons to move to Jersey City, whether it’s the bars, apartments, restaurants, or area that has caught your eye. With Jersey City comes great joy.

The Waterfront Walkway stretches across almost 19 miles, from Bayonne to Weehawken You can bike it or scoot it, run it or walk it. If you don’t have your own bike, don’t worry- you can rent one! Did we mention the stunning tourist spots like Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Liberty Science Center, and Colgate Clock? If that isn’t enough outdoor action for you, Jersey City is investment $6 million to renovate and build city parks. Liberty State Park, the crown jewel, hosts a Tough Mudder and an amazing 4th of July fireworks play on the Hudson.

Whether Manhattan or Brooklyn have gotten too expensive, or you’re looking for a change of pace, Jersey City real estate might just be for you. There are large amounts of affordable housing available and just a short commute! Not to mention the steady stream of new Jersey City restaurants.

Catching the L train from Brooklyn to Midtown seems to take longer every day- but the PATH train from Jersey City will get you to Greenwich Village in just over 15 minutes, while it only takes 5 to get to the World Trade Center. Need to get 33rd street? Just over 20 minutes on the PATH train. If you’re commuting to Lower Manhattan or Midtown, check out the ferry routes- there are four.

Jersey City apartments are far more affordable than those in NYC, and if you’re not ready to buy don’t worry, because Jersey City rentals are an excellent option, too.

If you’re tired of paying more for just about everything, then think about the fact that not only is Jersey City’s sales tax much lower, but everything from bottled water and toilet paper to rent and cable is cheaper in Jersey City.

If you love food there is a plethora of trendy eateries that are highly rated, and many are run by former NYC chefs. Even better, a visit to them won’t break the bank. It’s bit on coffee, and Jersey City bars are amazing.

Another twenty minutes takes you to Seaside Heights- plus, there’s no need to deal with tunnels, bridges, or New York traffic. Oh, yeah living in Jersey City means a parking space in front of your home- because residents can obtain a parking permit for the street.

Moving On to Your Next Home?

Get Pre-Approved

A pre-approval letter is one of the most crucial items needed to purchase a house! It shows you're a serious buyer and can afford the home you are submitting an offer for - putting you a step ahead of other buyers!

Be ready to provide your lender with the necessary financial documents (W-2 statements, paycheck stubs, bank account statements, etc.). Once they verify your financial status, you'll have a better sense of your budget. You'll know how much you can afford and how much you can borrow.

Securing a pre-approval letter puts you on the fastest path to home ownership!

Choose the Right Agent


Find an agent who can guide you to the best listing price... this doesn't necessarily mean the most money. An experienced real estate professional will help you determine a strategic list price based on the market value of your home, local inventory and your timeline for moving.

Savvy REALTORS ® also have a marketing plan! They know buyers form quick impressions when searching for properties online, so they put their best foot forward with professional photos, articulate and vivid descriptions, and a variety of web and social media tools.

The right agent will have the tools to sell your home, while helping you find your next one!


Find an agent with the experience, knowledge and technology to help you find what you're looking for.

When your REALTOR ® has a website with home search tools built-in, you can browse properties just like you would on sites like Zillow or Trulia. The difference? By using your agent's site, they have direct insights into your preferences, needs and favorite listings!

Looking for homes with 4 beds, 2.5 baths in a certain school district? Your agent will send you homes based on your specific browsing behavior, and alert you to relevant listings as soon as they become available!

Have the Home Appraised

As a buyer, your lender will secure an appraiser to provide an unbiased, professional estimate for the value of the house. The appraiser will form their report based on similar homes, market trends and, of course, the home itself (floor plan, amenities, etc.). An appraisal is meant to confirm that buyers and sellers have arrived at a fair price for the home.

Expect Escrow & Closing Costs

When you purchase a home, there will be closing costs. These costs include fees for processing, title insurance, closing, title search, mortgage taxes, appraisals, and more. Within closing costs, there are third-party fees that come from companies that don't work for mortgage lenders yet provide essential services like escrow.

Escrow is when an impartial third party holds on to funds and distributes them accordingly to process a transaction. This fund, also known as earnest money, is a form of good faith that the buyer will hold for the seller if they breech the contract. Definitely consult an attorney if you have a question!

Have the Home Inspected

The purchase of your home is typically contingent upon an inspection which checks for signs of structural damage and other issues with the home. Your agent will arrange to have this inspection conducted within a few days of your offer being accepted by the seller.

The home inspector will examine the roof, plumbing, electrical, appliances, HVAC systems, windows, fireplace and chimney, foundation, etc.

Once the inspection is complete, buyers and sellers will be notified of the home inspector's findings, which buyers can choose to address prior to closing. Before the sale closes, buyers have a "final walk-through" of the house to confirm all the agreed-upon repairs have been made.

Get Camera Ready

The majority of home searches start online, so if your home doesn't look good on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, it won't entice buyers to take a look in person. Your REALTOR ® should showcase your home with crisp, high-resolution professional photography to grab and keep buyer attention. Having the right angles, shots, and editing go a long way in getting people through the doors of your home.

The right agent will work with you to get your home ready to sell! At times, this takes de-cluttering, de-personalizing, and taking a step back to think like a buyer rather than an owner. If your home is in need of professional staging, your agent can make recommendations and point you in the right direction.
