Neil - I get these requests a lot as I work on short sale resolutions for sellers. Many investors ask how they can get on the list to have first crack at the purchase offer. Here's the deal though that many folks (maybe not you but definitely others...) need to realize - when folks like myself get involved in negotiating with a lender's short sale department, our responsibility is to the seller, not the buyer. The seller is authorizing me to speak on their behalf to bring about an approval with terms that work best for the seller. Now of course most if not all of the deals I have done have benefited the buyer indirectly because a) I got the deal approved and closed, and b) the buyer likely got the home less than the BPO value because of the case we built to point out the real AS IS value for the home, as well as the hardship case made for the seller. But regardless, the responsibility I/we have is for the sellers, not the investor. Hope this was helpful if you did not realize it. Tom Hinz www.shortsaletosell.com... more
Personally, I find investment properties in out of state locations that are stable or growing, where you can purchase and rent and have a positive income flow after expenses is the way to go. You need to focus on a good property management company, realtor agency, and title company so you have all the pieces for a good investment property team. It takes a little work, but it is in my opinion a better option than trying to compete with overpriced foreclosures here in NJ...you can find some good ones, but the competition is very high, and the cash flow situation could be riskier depending on your financing...It is more difficult to have a positive income after expenses in NJ on a foreclosure.

Your best bet for an accurate answer is to go to the local police station and check with them. You can also call the local newspapers and ask if they print the "police blotters!" Also don't forget you can visit the specific neighborhoods and ask the local residents how safe their neighborhood is and if there is any questionable activity in the area. People are usually very helpful in this respect. As realtprs we are not allowed to give that kind of information to our clients.... more

I grew up in Pine Beach in Ocean County and I have to say it was a great place to grow up. So my inclination is to say Pine Beach. But the other areas such as Beachwood , Toms River , Island Heights are good and are part of the Toms River school system. There are also good areas in southern Ocean County that can offer the same such as Berkeley or Barnagat. Here is the link to the Ocean County web site that can help you in getting a good idea of what Ocean County has to offer. oceancountytourism.com... more
