The area had lots of flooding during Superstorm Sandy. Houses were torn down and the lots are for sale very cheap. If you do decide to buy, ask your real estate agent AND your attorney to check the new FEMA flood maps and availability of flood insurance.
If you are interested in a specific house and the owner says there wasn't any damage from Sandy, ask them to get a letter from their insurance company that shows how far back the policy covered the house and whether or not there were any claims during Hurricane Sandy or Irene.
For an overview of Middletown real estate, read my last blog post (under Middletown "Advice", click on "Middletown Blogs". That post covers single-family homes. Are you also considering condominiums? There are a lot of nice condos in Middletown, many are townhouses and some have 1-car garages.
Many people like Middletown because in addition to being close to the Parkway, it has easy transportation to Manhattan via train and high speed ferry.
I'd be glad to work with you to find exactly what you want. Call, text or email me!
