I'm selling mine, because I got a new job in another part of NJ. My house is a great little place in Woodbridge, NJ. 10 min walk to NJ Transit, where an express train that comes frequently will get you to NY Penn Station in 40 min, or you can catch an express bus to Port Authority. You can also see the Outerbridge Crossing from my yard, it is so close - so it is only a 10 or so min drive to Staten Island, and 30 min drive to Park Slope, BK. (unless there is bad traffic) It is convenient to everything, tons of stores and all major roads.

2 bedrooms, 1.5 bath, sunny, bright, open layout, big kitchen w/ new dishwasher, fridge, washer & dryers, still all under warranty. Cute fenced-in yard with a paver patio & several raised beds for gardening. Partially finished basement. Attic with lots of storage. A great starter home!

All for a mortgage cheaper than my last tiny 1 bedroom apt. in Manhattan, which you could fit in my living room alone.

I'm posting it here first, it isn't even on the market yet. I'm thinking of destroying the garden because I figure most people won't want it, and with the housing market the way it is, I'm afraid it won't sell with a big empty vegetable garden. So I figured before that happened, I'd see if any vegans who like gardens might happen to be interested.

Here's some pics.

This is the kitchen before we moved in. It looks the same except add a new bosch dishwasher and GE refrigerator:

And the garden in the backyard:

I'm sure I took more pics of the living room but I can't find them right now.

god, it looks lovely! i hope you find somebody who appreciates the vegetable garden, because it would be such a shame to lose it.

Wow so I'm amazed at how long ago I posted this...but i only just finally put it on the market 2 weeks ago!!

So, it is officially up for sale if you or anyone you know wants to pay less for a house than your nyc rent, with a shorter commute than some areas in brooklyn or queens!

I did end up taking out half of the garden beds, but left the ones up against the fence on the left.

I'm not going to put the official listing up because it has my personal info, but if you're interested feel free to PM me!

Here's the living room:

price reduced! $219,900. I can't believe it has been on the market 30 days and no one wants it. *sigh*

Stiiillll available. Open house on the 19th.

I can't even believe it is taking this long. *sigh*

edit: sorry I didn't realize I posted a month ago! i'd delete this if I could! i didn't mean to spam.

does anyone happen to have some suggestions for other message boards or local papers where I could advertise?

If you pm me the listing I can get it out to my parenting groups in the area. It looks like such a wonderful house!
