Homes and Apartments in Union City, New Jersey

If you’re looking for real estate, then look no further- Gerard Stier is here to help. Union City is within Hudson County and its part of the “Gold Coast”, which is a 19 mile stretch on the Hudson River and includes the likes of Hoboken, Jersey City, Edgewater, and Weehawken. It has a population of around 67,000 residents.

Its name comes from merging West Hoboken and Union Hill. The two waves of immigration from Germany and Cuba have greatly shaped the character of the city. Union City has two nicknames, Havana on the Hudson and Embroidery Capital of the US. These nicknames are an important reflection of the city’s history and every year the city holds the Cuban Day Parade of New Jersey, and the passion play, which is the longest running one in the country.

There is a lot to brag about here, with stunning and affordable Union City, New Jersey real estate options and lots to do. In 2015 the Union City/Weehawken Reservoir Park opened and it straddles the border of the two cities. It encompasses over 14 acres of land that had sat unused since the last 1990’s.

There is plenty of public transportation, too. There are two airports under 15 miles away, and bus terminals providing regular services. There’s no PATH station, but the transit bus runs straight to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, as there is quick access to Route 495. There’s also the light rail which leads to various PATH stations, including Newport and Hoboken. If you’re looking for a Union City apartment many complexes provide shuttle rides directly to the nearest PATH train. That should provide you with time to decide your best commuting option, with many residents citing that the bus is the quickest option. There’s also the ferry.

Moving On to Your Next Home?

Get Pre-Approved

A pre-approval letter is one of the most crucial items needed to purchase a house! It shows you're a serious buyer and can afford the home you are submitting an offer for - putting you a step ahead of other buyers!

Be ready to provide your lender with the necessary financial documents (W-2 statements, paycheck stubs, bank account statements, etc.). Once they verify your financial status, you'll have a better sense of your budget. You'll know how much you can afford and how much you can borrow.

Securing a pre-approval letter puts you on the fastest path to home ownership!

Choose the Right Agent


Find an agent who can guide you to the best listing price... this doesn't necessarily mean the most money. An experienced real estate professional will help you determine a strategic list price based on the market value of your home, local inventory and your timeline for moving.

Savvy REALTORS ® also have a marketing plan! They know buyers form quick impressions when searching for properties online, so they put their best foot forward with professional photos, articulate and vivid descriptions, and a variety of web and social media tools.

The right agent will have the tools to sell your home, while helping you find your next one!


Find an agent with the experience, knowledge and technology to help you find what you're looking for.

When your REALTOR ® has a website with home search tools built-in, you can browse properties just like you would on sites like Zillow or Trulia. The difference? By using your agent's site, they have direct insights into your preferences, needs and favorite listings!

Looking for homes with 4 beds, 2.5 baths in a certain school district? Your agent will send you homes based on your specific browsing behavior, and alert you to relevant listings as soon as they become available!

Have the Home Appraised

As a buyer, your lender will secure an appraiser to provide an unbiased, professional estimate for the value of the house. The appraiser will form their report based on similar homes, market trends and, of course, the home itself (floor plan, amenities, etc.). An appraisal is meant to confirm that buyers and sellers have arrived at a fair price for the home.

Expect Escrow & Closing Costs

When you purchase a home, there will be closing costs. These costs include fees for processing, title insurance, closing, title search, mortgage taxes, appraisals, and more. Within closing costs, there are third-party fees that come from companies that don't work for mortgage lenders yet provide essential services like escrow.

Escrow is when an impartial third party holds on to funds and distributes them accordingly to process a transaction. This fund, also known as earnest money, is a form of good faith that the buyer will hold for the seller if they breech the contract. Definitely consult an attorney if you have a question!

Have the Home Inspected

The purchase of your home is typically contingent upon an inspection which checks for signs of structural damage and other issues with the home. Your agent will arrange to have this inspection conducted within a few days of your offer being accepted by the seller.

The home inspector will examine the roof, plumbing, electrical, appliances, HVAC systems, windows, fireplace and chimney, foundation, etc.

Once the inspection is complete, buyers and sellers will be notified of the home inspector's findings, which buyers can choose to address prior to closing. Before the sale closes, buyers have a "final walk-through" of the house to confirm all the agreed-upon repairs have been made.

Get Camera Ready

The majority of home searches start online, so if your home doesn't look good on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, it won't entice buyers to take a look in person. Your REALTOR ® should showcase your home with crisp, high-resolution professional photography to grab and keep buyer attention. Having the right angles, shots, and editing go a long way in getting people through the doors of your home.

The right agent will work with you to get your home ready to sell! At times, this takes de-cluttering, de-personalizing, and taking a step back to think like a buyer rather than an owner. If your home is in need of professional staging, your agent can make recommendations and point you in the right direction.
