First and foremost, buyers would like to feel like your home can be their own. How do you accomplish this? The kitchen is one of the largest draws for buyers. An upgraded kitchen can tremendously help to separate your home from the pack. However, be careful not to overdo your upgrades as you may not reap all the money that you put in. Have a realtor come in and give you a market analysis of what your home is currently worth and what it potentially could be worth with the upgrades.

I hope this information helped you.

It is perfect time to sell if you decide to do so. However, it is natural to wonder why the listings around your home have not sold? There are many factors that influence this. Besides, the price and condition of these homes a lot depends on the motivation of the realtor. With the right agent, your home will sell. The right agent will be personally involved in advertising on line, word-of-mouth, Open Houses, and sites such as Top Producer,, and ofcourse the MLS system. It is critical to do direct marketing of your home which is paid either by the agent privately or by the Real Estate Company. Prudential does extensive marketing of their listings and has been the most stable Company during the real estate market turmoil. Lana, I would be glad to meet with you and discuss about listing and selling your home. Please call me: 732-371-8349 ... more

As the relocation director of my company, I can get you in touch with several realtors to interview. You should inquire about their marketing. Over 80% of buyers shop online before ever contacting a realtor. So the agent you hire should be very knowledgeable online and your home should be posted on thousands of home shopping websites. Also, signage is very important. You should also know upfront, how often your realtor communicates with you. Some speak with their clients weekly and some monthly. Either is fine just so that you are aware of how your realtor works. And make sure your realtor works well with other companies. I can share more with you. Feel free to call me.

Some complexes are selling well, while others are not. In particular, in Ocean County where there are many 55+ communities, there has been a slow down.

Further north, the 55+ communties are doing better. Select communities are doing very well.

Our slow down came as a result of the halt in downsizing. A few years ago, sellers were cashing out on the sale of their single family homes, socking away $$,a nd paying cash for an adult community property.

Today, sellers sometimes elect to hold tight ini their exisitng homes, awaiting a stronger market in which to sell. Because these sellers do not have to move, there has been a slowdown in some adult communities.

Our beta site is dedicated to this segment of the market.

We are quite commited to serving this market niche and closed on a few properties just last week in adult communites.
