Some weekend gossip, from the Real Deal blog:

NBA veteran suffers big loss on NJ condo sale

Atlanta Hawks center Jason Collins sold his North Bergen condo — fully stocked with electronics and furniture — at a 58 percent loss this week, according to New Jersey Multiple Listing Service data.

Collins sold the 2,400-square-foot duplex penthouse he owns in the Mirabelle on the Hudson, at 8125 River Road, for $700,000 — exactly $1 million less than he paid for it in 2005, when it was a new development. He bought it when played for the New Jersey Nets, but has since signed with the Atlanta Hawks and settled on a home in that area.

“The real estate bubble hit everyone, [Collins] included,” said Joshua Baris, the Coldwell Banker agent who listed the property. “People made decisions based on the market at the time, and he obviously took a big loss, but he handled it gracefully.”

The Mirabelle is home to several other celebrities, and the rapper and reality TV star Ice-T lives two units down, according to a source with knowledge of the building.

Collins commissioned Baris through a mutual acquaintance, and Baris said it was “awkward” to tell the 7-footer what he realistically thought the apartment would sell for. Baris listed it in June for $788,000.

“It was priced like a short sale. But for him to hold on to a property that wasn’t going to increase anytime soon was a liability,” Baris said. “So he cut his losses.”

“My clients took advantage of the current market and received a great deal,” said Gershon Adjaye, the Keller Williams NYC agent who represented the buyer. “All the furnishings and electronics were included. A ‘pack-a-suitcase-and-move-in’ style purchase.” Adjaye, who has licenses in New York and New Jersey, would not disclose the buyer’s identity.

    Ah, yes… the infamous Gold Coast. One of the greatest marketing scams in the history of real estate. The entire riverfront from Bayonne to the GW Bridge was nothing but broken glass, beer bottles and shag shacks. There’s a reason why Manhattan is Manhattan and the other side of the river is, well, just the other side of the river. Born in raised in Hudson County my whole life and believe me, I covered every square inch of that turf. The whole coast was marketed as an extension of New York City. As Robert De Niro claimed in the movie Casino, “all the glitz and all the comps were designed for one thing; to get your money!” And that’s exactly what the developers and swindlers did.

  21. gary says:

    speedkillsu,

    Yes, $20,000 in f*cking property taxes. Please, can anyone tell me the absolute bloodless corpse that will be housing in Northern NJ circa 2014. The prices of houses, even in Ellery and Graydon’s town, will be an afterthought when considering taxes. Prices can plummet, property taxes will not.

  22. gary says:

    Actually, the taxes are over $21,500 and we all know that’s a f*cking lie until you’re hit with the actual extortion notice from the town. They should just send the tax bill with a red lipstick kiss stamp and a perfume scent. Catch my drift?

  29. yo says:

    Joyce,
    You are assuming a rise in inflation is always due to the lost of value of a countries currency.Which is not true.Supply and demand has the main play.Just like what you have seen in the US,after a QE of $1.6 T the value of the dollar and inflation remained manageable due to demand of treasuries.
    In Vietnam their currency had a strong gain against the dollar.Inflation is due to rising demand.People are getting richer ,getting out of poverty like the rest of the third world.Demand for goods domestic and export are rising.The Government don’t have an effective way of increasing interest rates like the Fed to slow down inflation.

    how do you devalue a currency? increase its supply, which sends prices of goods denominated in that currency to rise in nominal terms. if you’re using the CPI as your inflation gauge, then i have a bridge to sell you. what was the CPI during the housing boom? they exclude home prices and use hedonic adjustments like owner’s equivalent rent, but the biggest fraud is that the FED only looks at core CPI which excludes food and energy. The price of oil in 2003 was $30/barrel and no one needs to eat do they

  37. cobbler says:

    how do you devalue a currency? increase its supply, which sends prices of goods denominated in that currency to rise in nominal terms.
    Your statement assumes the closed financial system (money doesn’t get out of the country, or come in) and fixed velocity. Neither of the two is the case in today’s economy. Regarding CPI, yes, gas went up a lot since 2003 (in the hindsight, invading Iraq might have been less than a swell idea, no?) – so I spend $100 more a month to fuel up a Civic; however, my house heating costs me (last PSE&G bill) $150 less than in the early 2000s, thanks to fracking. Most of the commodities go up simply because as our money travels to the developing world to pay for the stuff you buy at Walmart, the workers building it are no longer content with getting $1 a day, they want $3 – and use this money to buy U.S. farm products, in particular.

  51. yo says:

    Joyce,

    The U.S. Treasury‟s ability to influence the value of the dollar in international currency markets might at first seem to be a trivial power that matters little to ordinary people, unless they travel abroad or happen to be employed in an import-export business. But it is a power that can and does have a major impact, not only on the unemployment rate but also on which workers become unemployed and how much employed workers earn. And it is a power exercised with little understanding or oversight by the public.
    The Treasury has the authority to intervene directly in currency markets by buying or selling dollars, though it rarely uses this authority. (The Treasury can in principle coordinate its interventions with the Fed, which also holds a large amount of foreign currency.) Usually its efforts to influence the value of the dollar have been more subtle, such as making pronouncements about a “strong dollar,” or indirect, through its control of the International Monetary Fund.
    Nonetheless, the Treasury could intervene more actively in currency markets if it opted to do so. Acting in coordination with the Fed, the Treasury could choose to bring the value of the dollar down against other currencies,and thereby produce a huge improvement in the country‟s trade balance. In turn, this would create millions of new manufacturing jobs. A boost to manufacturing would increase the demand for non-college-educated workers and push up their wages relative to those of more highly educated workers. There is remarkably little awareness, even in policy circles, that the value of the dollar is a policy tool under the control of the government. This is striking because there have been major debates over trade agreements like NAFTA and CAFTA (The Central American Free Trade Agreement), primarily over concern about their potential impact on jobs in the United States. By contrast, the value of the dollar is almost never mentioned in policy debates. Even small changes in the value of the dollar are likely to have far more impact on trade and employment than the most important of these trade agreements. Typically, trade pacts comprise relatively small reductions in tariff barriers, coupled with changes in investment rules designed to facilitate the movement of manufacturing jobs overseas. Even the largest of the recent trade pacts involved only a relatively small portion of U.S. trade – for example, the entry of Mexico into NAFTA.
    A rise in the value of the dollar against other currencies by, say, 10 percent is equivalent to giving a 10 percent subsidy on all the goods imported into the United States and imposing a 10 percent tariff on all the goods we export. This sort of increase in the value of the dollar could easily increase the trade deficit by more than 1 percent of GDP (about $150 billion), an amount that would imply the loss of far more than one million jobs. Yet, such an increase in the value of the dollar could occur over a couple of months and get almost no mention outside of the business pages, and even then would not likely garner major headlines.
    This works to the advantage of those who benefit from a high-dollar policy. At the top of this list would be the financial industry, which receives benefits of a high dollar through two channels. First, by making imports cheaper, a high dollar helps to keep inflation low, and stable prices are a financial industry obsession. Second, when the financial industry looks to move abroad, its dollar assets go much further when the dollar is overvalued.
    Other industries have a more ambiguous view toward a high dollar. Domestic manufacturers should oppose a high dollar since it places them at a disadvantage relative to their foreign competitors. However, insofar asmanufacturers are able to establish operations overseas, they are likely to be content with a high-dollar policy that disadvantages only some of their operations. Because they can shield themselves with their foreign operations, they can gain an advantage over purely domestic competitors.
    Major retail chains like Wal-Mart are advantaged in a similar way. By contracting with suppliers in China and other countries with low labor costs, these chains enjoy a supply of low-cost imports that allows them to undercut retailers that pay higher domestic prices for their products. For this reason, major retailers are likely to oppose any effort to lower the value of the dollar.
    There is also a peculiar class dynamic to the dollar debate. When American tourists travel to Europe or Asia, their money goes further when the dollar is high. While only a small portion of the population makes regular trips overseas, it is an important group for policy purposes. The people who staff congressional offices and the higher levels of the bureaucracies in Washington, the people who run and contribute to political campaigns, and the reporters who cover them all are likely to be among the group of frequent foreign travelers. For all these people, a decline in the dollar might be viewed as bad news because it means that their next trip to France or Italy will cost more.
    The importance of this aspect of the policy debate should not be underestimated. Even the staffers of progressive members of Congress and journalists from progressive opinion magazines are far more likely to take vacations in Europe than the typical person. It is easy for them to understand that a high dollar makes their overseas trips less expensive. This fact can make it much harder for them to understand that a high dollar can also cause millions of workers to be unemployed or force them to work at lower wages.
    While a substantial number of powerful special interest groups will benefit from an overvalued dollar, it is harmful to the economy as a whole in both the short run and the long run. In the short run, an overvalued dollar virtually guarantees a large trade deficit, and a trade deficit both reduces overall employment and changes the mix of jobs in a way that works against workers without college degrees. The jobs that are lost as a result of a trade deficit will be disproportionately in manufacturing, which continues to be a source of relatively high-paying jobs for less-educated workers. For this reason, the trade deficit is an important factor contributing to the increase in inequality that we have seen over the last three decades.It is also important to recognize how the dynamics of a trade deficit affect the overall economy. If the country has a trade deficit, then it is, on net, borrowing from abroad. In other words, someone must be lending us money in some form to allow us to buy more than we are selling. If the country as a whole is borrowing more than it is lending, then the culprit must be either the public sector or the private sector. (That‟s all we‟ve got.)
    Borrowing on the public-sector side corresponds to the large budget deficits that we hear so much about. A budget deficit means that the government is spending more than it pulls in as tax revenue and therefore must borrow the difference. A large budget deficit can be one result of a large trade deficit. The causation would be that the loss of jobs due to the trade deficit reduces tax revenues and increases payouts for unemployment insurance and other benefits. In this story, if we get the dollar down, then we can make substantial progress in reducing the budget deficit, since the jobs created by reducing the trade deficit will lead to more income tax revenue and lower benefit payments.68
    If the budget is near balance or in surplus, then the borrowing must be on the private side. This would be the story of extraordinarily low private savings that we saw during the years of both the stock and housing bubbles. In both cases, the inflow of foreign capital helped to inflate the bubbles. The wealth created by these bubbles led people in the United States to spend more and save less, yielding large negative private savings. This is not a sustainable course, since bubbles eventually burst.
    Recovering from a burst asset bubble can be a long and difficult process, as the country is now experiencing. If the dollar does not fall enoughto allow the trade deficit to get much closer to balance, then the government must run large budget deficits to sustain employment. The only alternative would be to create yet another bubble to drive the economy.
    A high trade deficit means that we have either a large budget deficit and/or low private savings. This is what in economics and finance is called an accounting identity: there is no way around this fact.

    Meat (59) – Exit polls showed that 51% of SC voters who were most concerned with beating Obama went for Gingrich.

  57. gary says:

    Put party preference and ideology aside; after 3 years of this current administration, I still don’t know Obama’s message, the direction of the country, his vision, his decisiveness nor his leadership. Based on that, I don’t know why anyone would grant four more years.

  58. Comrade Nom Deplume says:

    If it wasn’t apparent before, I agree with Meat. We are all screwed. Of course, meat is bigger on the hyperbole but ATEOTD, I agree with Fabius that O gets reelected, but that he fails to do anything for the economy because his war on capital will result in persistent unemployment, bigger federal deficits because of spending and because lower revenues from certain taxes offset tax hikes on the wealthy, and higher costs for everyone (which hits the bottom 95% hardest).

    Invest and plan accordingly.

  59. Comrade Nom Deplume says:

    Here’s another 2012 prediction: Obama signals he is open to approving the Keystone Xl pipes in order to get through the election. He keeps the enviros at bay by promising a rigorous review process. Obama can do this because he knows that the first bucketful of dirt isn’t going to be scooped anytime before the election.

    Once Obama gets elected, he is between a rock and a hard place: If he then rejects it because his base demands it, or dithers so long that US investors bail, Canada recruits investors then starts to recruit skilled labor from the U.S. to build it. Congress and unions go nuts. If Obama approves it, he pisses off his enviro and anti-fossil fuel base.

    ATEOTD, Obama will cave on the pipeline if it appears that the canadians will build theirs because the dems will force him to throw the enviros under the bus.

  60. 3b says:

    #62 gary: The Obama’s might as well start working on the guest list for the Ball. He is going to win re-election.

    I despise both parties.

  62. NJGator says:

    Gary – Don’t disagree with a word you say. I don’t know of many, even in my most liberal circle of friends who are happy with O’s leadership. I know lots of people who would like an alternative to O, but not a single one of them will ever pull the lever for Newt or Santorum.

  63. SX says:

    Under the Karma is Bitch (if it is all true ) File: jo pa dies.

  64. Comrade Nom Deplume says:

    [63] redux,

    I should qualify that to say war on DOMESTIC capital. He has to keep the welcome mat rolled out for foreign direct investment (FDI). This exacerbates the assymetry between treatment of foreign and domestic investors and we see capital flight as more hedge funds, PI funds, and private investors go offshore.

    Congress and Obama fight back by designating expatriate capital as “domestic” for tax purposes, and this forces a showdown with the canadian, Irish, and UK governments, to name a few. Coupled with FATCA, you may start to see a situation where expatriate capital is exclusively invested abroad and only pure foreign capital invests here. This is especially true if foreign governments liberalize their own FDI rules, as India has recently done in a small way.

  65. gary says:

    Oblama’s lips move but I have no idea what he’s saying… I never did. Gingrich again challenged the Annointed One to a series of seven, three hour debates. He even said he can bring a teleprompter. I’m sure he would agree to let him bring cue cards, a power point presentation and a bunch of text books as well. Gingrich is offering gladiator style tactics that appeal to most American’s comprehension level. Meanwhile, he’ll trounce him with ideas and a clear message that will appeal to those with a higher level of insight. If Obama is the leader he claims to be, then why be afraid? I want someone who has the intellectual equivalent of punching somebody in the mouth.

    They right always promised job creation from NAFTA to all trade agreements that were created and the Americaan workers specially the no college degrees were always put up against low wage workers from other countries.Guess who wins?But the High paid Doctors and Lawyers were never put against low paid Doctors from other countries.Open the border to low paid Doctors from other countries and let them compete here.See if 2x of what we pay for health care don’t come down.

I doubt if Newt would have, rather he would have been the first one on board, abandoning his third wife for a younger assistant, again. Ron Paul probably would have stayed in Washington. Newt is a City Cowboy, all hat & no horse. A viable ticket, within the current mix, would be a Romney/Paul ticket, given that neither party wants to offer anyone good. Romney/Cain would also work, except Cain was Newt-ered.

    Late this evening, my 8YO had to complete her journal assignment. Her teacher had asked her “Did you enjoy the Giants game on Sunday?” She replied:

    “I’m happy that you enjoyed the Giants game, but my family doesn’t cheer for them. We cheer for the Patriots and Eagles! . . . . My dad and I watched the Patriots win at our house. We can’t believe the other team didn’t get the last field goal. My dad went very, very, very, very crazy because he loves his home town team.”
