Investing in Paterson, New Jersey

New Jersey happened to be one of the hardest-hit states early on during this pandemic, but since the governor of New Jersey declared real estate an essential business last year, Northern New Jersey has seen a lot of prospective buyers looking to move out of New York City for greener pastures across the Hudson.

Paterson specifically has struggled to retain its prominence as an important American city, despite having an array of largely untapped resources. Paterson is uniquely positioned to capitalize on several key assets, such as the glorious Great Falls of the Passaic River; the high concentration of beautiful beaux-arts buildings downtown, and its 13-mile proximity to New York City; as well as its rich history as the birthplace of the U.S. Industrial Revolution.

The Patch cited that both sellers and buyers can benefit from the current real estate environment. Buyers are able to stretch their budget with the benefit of record-low interest rates. Sellers, on the other hand, have an abundance of new buyers looking, a stabilizing local economy, and limited housing inventory available going into the spring 2021 market. 

Movers consider Paterson for its affordability and transportation infrastructure, including an NJ Transit Main Line commuter rail service to Hoboken located in Downtown Paterson.
