A good mortgage company will guide you the process and pre qualify you before you look at properties, his way you will know what and how much you can afford. Often times when a credit score is low, you can pay off debt and if you are trying to raise your score, don't apply for credit till your mortgage is approved.

Hope this helps

There is certainly a demand for college kids, to rent condo's in the area, during their school session. You are also able to rent out a condo for the summer months, if you so desire.
I would be happy to help you. I have lived in the West End area for over 11 years.

Hi Mcorona,
You're best bet is to speak to a mortgage rep. They will have to run your credit, take a look at your financial picture, then advise you on the best direction to take in order to buy a home. Long Branch may have some interesting programs, such as live where you work or other community based programs that could make a home purchase extremely affordable. Please let me know if you need a name of any local reps to help you. If you need someone that is bi-lingual and understands the marketplace, please let me know. Best of Luck to you.

Lyle Wolf answered:
Bottom line, unless stated otherwise in your contract the seller needs to obtain the CO before closing. For example, in contracts for short sales the buyer often has the expense and responsibility for the CO. You do not want to close without a CO, even if you are paying cash. It can be a recipe for future costs and trouble later. ... more

Excellent question . . . obviously your head is spinning as radily as our heads are with all of these changes.

Yes, revisions have been made to the original plan that provide for potential homeowners to apply these mones to closing costs upfront as well as newly created (as of 5/29/2009) bridge loans are offer to potential homeowners for the totality of these costs, See .

As for a govenrnmental "link" that would provide u with guidance . . . well, my most popular is now resulting in a "site not found!" response.

The best advice that any of us can give is to consult with a Tax Pro for the most definitive reponse realizing that none of us can provide solid answers in this ever changing market.

Love and Peace,
Francesca, Realtor

Yes, and I would advise you to get the CO ASAP as Neptune Township is notorious for nitpicking before granting COs.

Jeff answered:

You can get some exotic and large homes in modular construction.

Your pricing assumptions are correct generally. They can also be built and ready for occupancy faster than a site built home, so that is a factor for some situations.

I like the much hardier standard construction elements you get in every modular, like 2 X 6 exterior wall framing vs. 2 X 4. You also get the latest and properly installed insulation even on the piping (where possible). And the other basics like plastic composite materials on face and freeze boards so it will never rot are just icing on the cake.

Antedotal information suggests they are also much more structurally sound and resist wind, earthquake and things like trees falling on them much better too.

You could try calling the listing agent. Her name is susan and her number is 732-771-4533. she might know if there's an oil tank on the property.
Otherwise, you would have to put in an offer and perform a sweep of the property yourself to find out.
If you are seriously considering it, you might want to get yourself a buyers agent to represent you though. If you search "dual agency" on this website you will get lots of opinions regarding having the listing agent represent you as your buyers agent, too.
