I'm in North Jersey but do have a great South Jersey agent who's with Diane Turton in Rumson. I'm not sure how she would feel about her privacy and me posting her information on here but if you shoot me an email Gina@GinaChiricoRealEstate.com I can provide you her contact information.

I won't step on any agents' toes here. I am certain that any of those responding here would do a great job!
When the time comes to discuss the nuances of property condition, then you will want to call and interview some home inspectors. Some, like myself, are more than happy to help answer questions even before the offer is made, such as, what constitutes a structural crack?
Foreclosures are particularly tricky, as the extent of deferred maintenance can be high and the trail of known issues runs cold without a direct seller disclosure. Good luck!

I cover the manasquan area. Call me anytime or email so I can get a better understanding of what you are looking for. Manasquan is a great area to live all year round or vacation in the summer so the property values have been relatively stable. I can give you some idea of what is available for foreclosure and short sales. Keep in mind because the town is relatively stable the foreclosures and short sales are not necessarily a bargain. They most likely need lots of work or they have a high mortgage lien attached preventing them to sell at deep discounts. You can sometimes get a better sale price from a motivated buyer who has their house on the market. People sometimes just want out.
We can discuss more when you contact me.
