Proximity to NYChudson coutny

Thanks to its proximity to New York City, which hosts one of the world’s extensive transportation systems together with one of the largest media markets and a fast growing hospitality industry, Hudson County is thronged by visitors coming to the New York metropolitan area and is a striking locale for sporting and corporate events too. This county is often called the sixth borough of NYC due to its proximity to Manhattan.

Population growth

In 2015, the rate at which Hudson County’s population grew surpassed all other counties in New Jersey as is shown in the figures of the U.S. Census. From July 2014 to July 2015, the county’s population experienced a 0.8% growth. This rise in Hudson County’s population is attributed to Jersey City’s building boom. But it’s not just Jersey City that got a boost in its number of residents. In fact, each of the municipalities of Hudson County is growing. For instance, the population of Secaucus increased by 13% between 2010 and 2014 to touch 18,416.

Interestingly, according to the U.S Census, Hudson County’s population has risen steadily since 2010 from 634,277 to 674,836. In fact, the 2010 Census figures say that 35,000 new residents were added to the county making it almost bust at the seams. Experts believe that trendy neighborhoods and magnificent views of the New York skyline have made Hudson County the state’s fastest growing county by a large margin.

Types of housing

The county’s total number of households stands at 246,437 as per the 2010 Census and the average household size is 2.33.

67.9% (167,374) households are renter households.

Hudson County’s largest federally assisted rental community that’s affordable too is Parkview Towers with 682 units, while Caparra Homes is the smallest at 1 unit(s). For seniors, 9 apartment properties with 755 units provide housing options to take their pick from. Residents may either buy dwelling units from existing housing stocks or opt for condominiums in mid- and high-rise developments, many of which are along the waterfront. Families with very low income can get some form of rental assistance (like Section 8), which helps to make their rent more affordable. With rental assistance, these people get a housing subsidy that pays a part of the renter’s monthly housing costs that include rent and tenant-paid utilities. Such rental assistance can be available in the form of project-based Section 8 contracts, Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers, USDA Rental Assistance (in Section 515 properties), public housing and HUD Section 202 as well as 811 properties.

In august 2016, Division of Housing and Community Development of Hudson County launched a new online portal (Hudson Housing Finder) to help its residents find state- and county-funded housing units easily.

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business again.read more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Amazing experience! Ken was upfront, quick and got the deal done in no time. Having done a number of real estate... transactions this was by far the easiest and smoothest. I would unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for an easy, quick and fair transaction.read more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
