Hi Mike, Ditto on the previous answers! In addition you have so many choices in Brick with regards to town home communities. Make sure that you are your real estate professional takes the time and completes due diligence with regards to special assessments. I know that Sutton Village units were all re-sided in the last 5 years so you will not have to worry about a special assessment for a few more years. Sutton Village is also a smaller community than Laurelton Woods allowing for more flexibility when it comes to utilizing the community's services. A Brick resident for more than 25 years, I know these communities have changed over the years I suggest take a ride on a Sunday afternoon weather permitting and take a walk through the community get a feel for population so you can make an informed decision on where you want to live.

I have a problem with the Sutton Village Community Association not monitoring the pool passes. Sutton Village has a problem with residents giving extra pool passes to their family and friends who don't live in the community and the Association not caring that these outside people use our facilities as their private club.

What is wrong with a Homeowner letting guests use their GUEST passes, that is what they are for. I know someone that has been a guest of a Homeowner for the whole entire season and that person has more respect for the rules than most of the Homeowners do and their children. They clean up messes that other people leave, they put chairs back and close umbrellas down and they water all nof the flowers by the pool. Not their job but they do it because they respect the pool area unlike so many others.

My girlfriend lived in Sutton village with her two small children. Her unit had a loft with bathroom that she used and the kids shared a room on the first floor. She had a good size living room and a place for a dining set. The little bay window in the kitchen fit her table. The kids loved the pool. All things said she was very happy there for a long time. If you are out during the week, stop and ask the mailman how the area is. We know our routes and the type of people who live in them. (i.e. do they get wellfair checks or fortune 500 magazine) Good luck in your search.

Both properties currently qualify for minimum down FHA financing. First time buyers should try to qualify with a grant or seller concession for closing costs. Good luck both are nice places to live.

Hi Mike,

As everyone here said, Sutton Village units have garages and Laurelton Woods do not. Both communities are similar in location as far as distance to main highways and they are both in the Brick Memorial school district. I just listed a fabulous unit in Laurelton Woods for $188,900. It shows really nice and truly is in "move in" condition. You should really look at several different townhome communities and then decide where you would like to be. Give me a call if you would like to see my new listing, or email me at scowan@glorianilson.com. Thanks and good luck in your search.

Mike,

The two main differences between Sutton Village and Laurelton Woods is (1) Sutton Village tends to have garages and the properties in the development are spaced quite close to each other and (2) Laurelton Woods does not have garages, but the development is quite spread out. Both are very near the entranceto GSP North.

There are a number of developments in Brick near GSP North under $200k with reasonable taxes and association fees. And if you are currently a renter and can wait out a short sale situation, you could feasibly wind up with a price in the $175k range.

My best advise would be to see all of your options in that price range as they are all quite comparable and each have different benefits.

I am in the area almost daily and am quite familiar with many of the developments. If you would like to get together to take a tour, email or give me a call.

Hey Mike,

There are a bunch of differences between the developments in Sutton Village it is a bigger development located north of Laurelton Woods area. The biggest difference for a buyer I think is the layout of the units Laurelton Woods are 2 levels with an exterior patio for entertaining and are about 200 sq feet bigger. Sutton Village units have a garage. Taxes are about 500-700 higher a year in Laurelton Woods and the MTC fee is about $18 more a month. If you have any other questions feel free there is also another development in that price range that also have a basement in this price range.

Thanks,
