Harrison has become a hip and vibrant local community because of the people and small businesses who have transformed this area. In New Jersey, when you think of local coffee shops, clubs, bars and food - you now think of Harrison!

Buying and Renting in Harrison

Ever since the drop in the market in 2008, Weehawken has become one of the most desired places to live within New Jersey. And during that time many folks took the opportunity to invest in Harrison real estate because of this beautiful melting pot of a diverse group of people who loved to be within walking distance from their home - and all the food and fun.


Now when it comes to buying or renting a place in Harrison, there can be some challenges due to low inventory in 2017. From a renting perspective, there are so many property management companies who waste peoples time with unrealistic processes to qualify a renter. And then if you're looking to buy real estate in Harrison, the prices can get quite high if you're not familiar with the real comps and value of the market place.


In fact, the best opportunities to buy or rent in Harrison, are the unseen properties. Properties that never hit the MLS or the internet because the deal was put together before it ever got to that point. There are many landlords and sellers who'd rather deal with a couple of entities compared to dealing with hundreds of propsects who are not really interested or qualified and that's where my personal business relatioships and expertise in the Harrison area can help you with your buying or renting goals.


My name is Matthew De Fede and I was born and raised in NJ. Not only have I sold real estate for the past decade but I also partake and enjoy in the lifestyle that this amazing community has to offer. If you're interested in buying or renting, let me get you started in the right direction.

If you're interestd in buying or renting in a specific community, you will want to see a list of the current comps in that neighborhood. Please do not trust automated online values (like Zillow) especially when it comes to a tight knit commuity like Harrison- you need someone who has access to all the closed record of sales and who is actively working the current rental market.


To get your personal comp list or if you would like to simply discuss the Harrison life and ask a few questions, please contact me directly on my cell at 862-228-0554 or Fill Out The Form Below.
