Hi Liz. For the most accurate answer, call the tax assesor for Jackson Township to determine. However, in most parts of NJ, square footage is a major aspect used in determing taxes.

Three single family homes have sold on Frank Applegate Rd since January of this year, ranging in price from $279,000 to $315,000. I would be happy to provide a detailed market analysis for you. I'm sure there are comps that would be valuable other than what has sold just on Frank Applegate.... more
Almost all this area is on top an an aquifer. That's what provides all the drinking water. I don't think that's what's causing the flooding. The home could be on wetlands, which is different from an aquifer. Or it could be poor construction. There are many reasons it could flood.... more
Michael i dont know NJ law but i sold a community of 149 (over 55 homes) here in NH and the federal rule said up to 20% of homes could be sold to buyers under 55 as long as they had no occupants under 18 (which was a local rule). They could buy a new home or a re-sale...... more
I think you may be referring to Lake Enno which comes off of Bennett's Mills Road. There is no odor, good fishing, and row boating. No power boats. I have sold many homes in the Lake Enno community. They are all very unique. Each one is very individual. I hope this helps a bit!

Every short sale is different so it is hard to say how long it will take the bank to approve it.
If there are real estate agents involved perhaps they can follow-up with the bank and see where they are in the process. The banks are generally difficult to deal with but they may be able to give some type of time frame. The key to short sales is constant follow-up and dealing with an agent who has experience with them.
I'm not sure who gave you a verbal approval but that is unusual for the bank to do. Unfortunately with short sales the bank is in control, not the sellers. Also, banks tend to change their minds during the process, so unless it is in writing I wouldn't count it as done.
I hope this all works out for you, good luck.

Carmine, The truth can be many verious answers. Every bank can accept or reject certain terms and conditions. It also depends on the investor/s who funded the loan. Is your home currently under a contract of sale or are you still looking for a buyer? Short sales may take a very long time to process and finaly get it approved by the bank but, once the bank approves it they usualy give only 30 days to close escrow. So, to answer your question.. it may be possibly true. On another note, I believe that a buyer may walk away from the purchase at any time when attempting to purchase a short sale property. Hope this helps you.
On Your Team.

I guess that depends on where you come from - beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What made you look at the area? Price, Commute, the lake - here is an old thread on city-data about Jackson:

I guess the question I need to ask is...are there any contingencies in your contract, other then the standard mortgage contigency? If you have a contingency that you must sell your home before you can complete the purchase of your new homes, then the other agent can still show the home. I don't know any details of your transaction, but if there are no contingencies and you have signed the contract there is no reason for the other agent to keep showing the house.
On the other hand, if you didn't offer full price and the seller accepted you offer, the other agent is still showing the house in hopes of getting a full price offer or a better offer then you came up with then they are not doing business in good faith. Even if the seller instructs the agent to do so, it is our jobs as realtors to educate our clients as to the proper way to do business. I would tell my seller that they want me to do something that is not correct for their ONE transaction, but I have to conduct my business on an on-going basis and I won't risk myn business for their ONE transaction.
But is it ethical? What does that mean? Who enforces ethics in this industry? What is YOUR real estate agent doing about it?
In my opinion the listing agent is conducting their business in an unethical manner.... more
