Bergen County Rentals: Are Costs Rising?

Published by:

Generally speaking the cost of living rises every year across the country.  A recent study by shows that Bergen County has a cost of living index that is higher than the rest of the country.  The base index number for the US average is 100, and Bergen County, New Jersey has an overall number of 149.2.

The overall number is acheived by averaging the various categories including housing, utilities, groceries, transportation, health care, and a category labeled as miscellaneous (clothing, repairs, restaurants, entertainment, etc).  Groceries, health care, and transportation are the closest to the national average at 104.9 for groceries, and 106 for health care and transportation.  Bergen County utilities has an index number of 136, while the biggest difference is in housing with an index number of 231.

It only makes sense that the more people that move to New Jersey, for whatever reason, the higher the rate of supply and demand, thus making it possible for the rates to increase.

According to an article I read at New Jersey, rental rates are expected to go up another 3% this year.  While there are laws about how much a landlord can increase your rent from year to year, this does not apply to a vacant apartment.  The landlord or leasing agency is free to charge a premium price if they feel the market warrants the price.

With as many new luxury apartment complexes that we see going up in Bergen County, we can only assume there is a demand for those units as soon as they are finished.  Take a look at a new listing at Hudson Lights at 177 Main Street in Fort Lee, a 934sqft 1 bedroom, 1 bath unit just hit the market for $3155 per month.  a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit at Twenty50 Windsor just showed up in the rental listings starting at $3385.  The Modern is a new luxury hi-rise at 800 Park Ave in Fort Lee, and they are advertising studio apartments for $2375, 1-bedroom apartments between $2875 and $3100, and 2-bedroom units between $3900 and $5400.  To get full details on the current availabilities at The Modern, please visit their website at

These examples may be on the high side just because they are new luxury residential units, but if they are getting these prices, other complexes in the Fort Lee and surrounding Bergen County area could follow suit.

Trump Tower vs the White House: Security

Published by:

He’s just been elected as the 45th
President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump. In recent news there has been speculation as to where President-elect Trump and his family will reside. With net worth of almost $4 billion, earned primarily in real estate, Donald Trump is considering commuting between his 58th floor penthouse in Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, and 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.  

While his New York City luxury residential apartment offers stunning views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline, it should certainly be no match to the luxurious accommodations of the White House.  Its three stories feature floors, walls and columns covered in marble while crown molding. The 30,000-square-foot apartment is decorated with 24-karat gold and even diamonds. On the other hand, the White House includes: six stories and 55,000 square feet  of floor space, 132 rooms and 35 bathrooms, 412 doors, 147 windows, twenty-eight fireplaces, a tennis court, a bowling alley (officially called the Harry S. Truman Bowling Alley), a movie theater, a jogging track, a swimming pool, a putting green and home to numerous precious pieces of art .  

Living in the White House seems like you have all the amenities of a luxury NYC apartment with pool, like you get at River Place in Manhattan. Only you dont have to share it with perfect strangers. 

The White House in Washington D.C. has been traditionally the home of the President of the United States and the residence of Presidential families for over 200 years and the primary workplace for the President.

If Mr. Trump decides to stay in New York a couple of days a week or on the weekend there will be a discussion of appropriate security, and who gets to pay for the additional staff. Obviously, security at Trump Tower would need to enhanced to at leastbe on par with the security at the White House.  The FAA has already established a no-fly zone over midtown Manhattan until the day after the presidential inauguration on January 21st.  The flying ban prohibits planes, helicopters, and drones from flying below 3,000 ft and within a two-nautical-mile radius of Trump Tower on Fifth Ave.  

The White House has multiple layers of defense, making it an almost impenetrable fortress. With an outer iron fence reinforced by groups of armed guards at the gates and inside the perimeter.  Snipers are in position at various points on top the building and the windows are made of bullet-proof glass. Also, it is reported to have infrared alarms, lasers, and missiles as part of the building’s infrastructure.

NYC apartments in Midtown West are amazing. Each one of them have their own style and offer its residents a unique way of living.

Lately something huge is happening in Midtown West.  A project that will leave one more than speechless, a superb construction that will change New York´s architecture for good.

Hudson Yards is coming soon, and promises to be as outstanding as most of New York´s buildings, which are considered to be the most amazing in the world.

This 52-story tower 10 building opened this spring and Hudson Yards is finally taking shape.

It´s unbelievable how much Midtown West has grown over the past years, a location that for decades was lined with parking lots and horse stables.

Fortunately, developers had bet in apartments Midtown NYC, and little by little, it´s turning into an awesome advanced neighborhood.

Over half a dozen apartment buildings including a condo, are rising across the Far West side.  Alo, several rental towers, office buildings and hotels have been emerging in the area.

The first residential building to go up in this development is a creation of some designers who worked on the High Line Park and will offer 391 apartments across 67 stories.

These apartments will feature one to four bedrooms, including duplexes and penthouses with 270 degree-views with curved windows.

The complete mega project is not scheduled to be finished until 2024.  When complete, it will offer 14 acres of open space, a one-million SQFT. Mall with 16 restaurants and an art center that will connect with 15 Hudson Yards.

Even though Hudson Yards may be pricey for the West Side, it is still lower than those on Billionaire´s Row in Midtown, where you can find apartments for more than $6000 per SQFT.

The greatest changes might be to the skyline.  64 buildings were built or are under construction, and the recent projects are about 10700 buildings out of an expected 20,000, giving Midtown West a newly renovated architecture style.
