Those houses are cheap for NJ, but with the exception of 1, look like they should be torn down.
Trust me, its not safe there. It was scary just driving thru
I would not advise my worst enemy to move there.

Access to good public transit would be a good foundation for beginning the process of gentrification. I haven't been in Irvington in about 7 years. That said, probably one of the worst areas I can recall driving through is off of Springfield Avenue, towards the Newark border, around 20th street. Just horrible.

Not in this market, I'd highly doubt it. Areas like irvington (purely imho) are going to be most effected by the market adjustment currently going on. Areas like Westfield, Chatham, Summit, Short Hills will likely be the least effected.

I'm amazed at the price. $249,000 5 bd, 3 ba Semi-renovated two family sold "as is". Buyer responsible for C.O. Hardwood floors refinished jacuzzi tub in master bedroom on 1st floor.

We just sold my dad's 2 family in Roselle that looked way better then this, had a 2 car garage; he listed for $280k, not sure what it went for. To think this is $30,000 less and what looks like no land. Sad, very sad.
