I found an interesting and informative article about Jersey City that I thought you might like. As the article says, with Manhattan becoming more densely populated, more and more people are migrating to the next stop - Jersey City!
Here are some of the most interesting points that I took away from the article.
Jersey City’s downtown is really on the rise.New restaurants and shops are popping up, and there’s a wealth of housing options with prices ranging depending on the type of housing and proximity to the waterfront. Median asking price is $399,000, but the article points out condo prices are as low as $55,000, and downtown high-rise units can get as high as $2.5 million.
The PATH has stops at Exchange Place, Newport, Grove Street, and Journal Square.Getting to Manhattan takes 20 minutes or less from most Jersey City neighborhoods. Also, NY Waterways ferries go to Manhattan from three different locations, and the light rail connects all over town and to nearby cities.
In addition to high-rises in waterfront areas, you’ll also find an interesting mix of row homes and brownstones, as well as some Victorian homes.
If you think you might want to find out a bit more about Jersey City, or any other surrounding areas of Hudson County, please feel free to give me a call. I’d love to speak with you about the market.

"Anthony helped me purchase my first home (a 2 bed, 2 bath condo) in Hoboken in July 2015. To rate him a 5* is an understatement. Having lived in Hoboken for eight years and had friends buy places during my time there I thought I knew what I was doing, but having Anthony help me throughout the process proved to me why you MUST work with a realtor that knows the area in which you are looking.
Being my first home buying experience Anthony did an incredible job of laying out the home buying process and walking me through each step - he was even able to recommend professionals in other areas for me to work with throughout the process (mortgage broker, lawyer, even a painter)! He even dealt with my NUMEROUS questions (at all hours) and did so promptly and with a smile!
Most importantly he listened to what I was looking for and only showed me properties that appealed to me and made sense.
Working with anyone besides Anthony to find your next home would be a huge mistake!"
