Some owners need time to realize they're priced over the market, so timing becomes important too. A home just on the market is exciting and attractive to a potential buyer, but they are often overpriced at first since many agents will take any listing no matter how overpriced it is. Any agent will tell you that the best listing to take is one that has changed hands 2 or 3 times already. The market has broken in the seller by then and forces the realization of the current market value.

Rhys is perfectly correct. I am an agent and know the Lavallette area very well. It has retained its value over the years and through the decline. I agree with Rhys again in that the best way to determine what to offer is to personally visit houses that have the extras that you are looking for and that are in your range with an agent. The agent can do the comparables to determine the propertys true value. Again I am a local agent who works in that area. I would love to help you find your next home. Let me know if you would like to go look at some. Look forward to helping you with your real estate needs.

The town is blessed with an several excellent local real estate agencies that know the market well, and can help you sort it all out. They won't tell you what to offer, but will help you arrive at such figures on your own based on their knowledge of comparables, seller motivation, time on the market, etc. Find a good one, and good luck in your search.
From what I understand this market has been stagnated by a local tax war which could very well lead to the declinein sales.
I would ask:
(1) r u from North jerey?
(2) If so, why no consider other waterfront coummunities not so far south.
Call or email of u would like to discuss further.
Love and Peace,
