Do you have any suggestions on a decent looking house in Bergen cty for under 500K? I was thinking maybe a small home in Englewood but even that is getting expensive.
Also, is it possible to buy a home in foreclosure this year and put 50K or so into it?
Thank you for your help.......
I'd look in Waldwick for your price range. Has a train station & small downtown. Close to Ridgewood & Paramus shopping. Low crime, pretty good schools and a family environment.
