  1. I have on good authority, they plan on recommending Albert area r-20 to be rezoned

    1. Terrible. One of the areas that's still affordable for young people who want a back yard.

    2. There was a rumor about rezoning properties along the Albert neighborhood side of New Hampshire Ave as commercial. Many connected investors own property in that area.

    3. Albert is affordable? $400k for a lot is affordable? We must have different definitions of the word.

    4. Compared to the rest of Lakewood, yes. Lots are 20,000 square feet. Take hearthstone as an example. Lots are 8,000 sq. Feet. Also more than $400k for a house.

  2. i hope at least the oak part is rezoned to high density its crazy these people live on a major thoroughfare, and are being held hostage by the r20 that is usually for rural or rustic areas, if you have to live with the trafic of the schools and the cafra area, at least allow them the benefits of city living

    1. The status Quoe isn't "holding anyone hostage". No neighborhood lives in a bubble, any increased density will effect the traffic in town.

  3. Can they rezone the whole town to r5 and not just the land that the developers want. This way anyone who wants to sell can make enough money to get the h---- out of this cesspool.

    2. I am starting to agree with you. Have already seen it in committee meetings, people who were anti-development are asking for density increases so they can sell and move out.

    3. I feel terrible for you that you live in a cesspool. I'm sure that you won't be missed too much, so feel free to leave whenever you'd like....

    4. I am sorry that you misunderstood my original post. I love the people of lakewood, I just hate the few who are making it miserable for everyone else.

    1. Reality check, Lakewood Real Estate prices have been stagnant for a year.

      Delete
    2. Reality check. Prices do not rise 20 per cent every year. Real estate markets never go up in a straight line.After such a ruse there us always a breather. Boro,Park had the same thing. Things went up like crazy then stagnated for a couple of years ,then resumed going up like crazy. The long term demand means prices will go up,in the long run. The bottom line is that almost every family in Lakewood has some family member in NY or out of town that wants to own a piece of what you call a cesspool.

    3. Double reality check. The only projects that are taking off are the chasiddishe developments as the young lakewooders are flocking to Jackson and TR. (Just ask R' Aron about it.)

    4. Although still not really affordable anymore for your average run-of-the-mill family

      Delete
    5. Lakewood Real Estate has flatlined, young Yeshivish couple for the most part don't want to live hear any more, people who own homes in Lakewood are moving to TR and Jackson.

      This is not a flatline before a property rise, this is a very delicate flatline that is on the verge of a crash

    6. So if nobody wants to live here anymore , then you have nothing to fight about anymore. There won't be any building if every body is moving out and nobody is moving in. In the meantime , my nephews listened to another blog who told them a year ago that everything was crashing and they waited,now they are totally priced out of the market.

  5. Very few yeshiveleit ate going to TR. Its all heimish and semi,modern NY people. They are getting a shock when they have no schools for their children.

  6. I have relatives kids who bought in Jackson. Its not so rosy. Either you get a very small house for 350 that if you end up with a large family will be too small or you end up getting an older 2600 sq ft house paying close to 430 plus some basic renovations for at least another 25 or 30. They eventually realized that a mortgage on a 460 house cost them more than a mortgage on a 560 house after a basement rental ,even with a lower basement rent. And their friends who bought the 560 ,570 houses have much more space for a growing family. Obviously some people want the large lot over having more room but its not do simple or rosy as you make it.I wish everyone would go to Jackson so my kids can afford a Lakewood house ,but unfortunately that is not happening.

    1. Failed to mention what happens when you can't rent your basement? How will they pay their mortgage then?

      Delete
    2. Another point is needing to qualify for a mortgage. If I can't get a mortgage for a $560k house, but can for a $450k house, I'm going to buy the $450k one.
