If you are talking about Four Seasons at Mirage in Barnegat, it does not require flood insurance.

Such towns are easy to spot. All you need to do is head down any county road. When you spot the community with the junk cars scattered about like we see on the 'American Pickers" show, used tires for sale, callasping tool sheds, outside dog houses with dogs on a chain, barbwire fences, cars parked on front yard, gravel driveways, every post is decorated with "No Tresspassing" signs, and a burn pile in the back have found your town! Most residents will be unfamiliar with 'Laissez-faire' but will be advocates of 'Leave me alone!" And isn't that what you are looking for, a place where folks are not into each others business?
Now, you are aware, your second, inevitable question will be invalid. That question is, "Is this a safe neightborhood?" The answer to that question is directly related to populaton density. How far do you want to drive?

It is best to use a Realtor, as the home buyer below indicated things can't be done, there are actually ways to do them. Also the home buying process and paperwork is different from state to state.

Good luck.

Bill Eckler answered:
Desirability and utility are probably two very important considerations when determining value. Determining a suitable use that coincides with the physical characteristics of the land will help greatly.

60 acres adjacent to a railroad may have increased value because of its location and potential utility possibly connected to the railway.

Good luck,

Many Broker Open houses are on Tuesdays or Thursdays, not on the weekends too.

Over the weekends, if I am not working with a client I spend time with my family or my hobbies.

- Advertising for Open houses is KEY to get ppl or other brokers to your listing.

Just putting 8 signs out on street corners and in your MLS might not get enough people to show up.

be proactive:

- Price it CORRECTLY

- Print out 100 or more COLOR flyers about your open house. On Wednesday before your Open house walk around that neighborhood between 6 and 8 at night to hand out the flyers to neighbors. Neighbors sell there neighborhood to their friends.

- Print an Open House flyer on PostIets a week prior to the open house. This will go out too all the IDX feeds.

- Craigs List. on Tuesday adverting your open house over the weekend. and on Saturday Morning take your Craigs list posting DOWN, make a new one and put it up. ( Do not renew, but remove and put up a NEW listing )

Your Postlets flyer will have HTML code for posting on Craigs List, Back Page and Oodle.

- have your lender do a lender flyer with loan amounts and payments for your home / Open House.

-Drawings for a $50 gas card at your Open House. Great way to get names, phone numbers and email address of ppl coming thought. ( called LEADS )

- Have bottled water and light snakes at your Open House for your guests.

This is what I have done and do with great success.

best of luck to you.

I work very closely with a Wells Fargo Mortgage and have just had a meeting with the rep. in this area. Since programs change I make it a point to know what ones are available and the basic qualifications for them. I was amazed at the programs they have available at this time. Many that she talked about seem as though they would benefit you greatly and put you in the home you want. I would be glad to put you in touch with her and work with the both of you to get the home of your dreams. I have been a realtor in this area for 12 years and am a resident of Barnegat. ... more

...and sometimes the agent will either set or reduce the price to a point that it will draw action - it might need to go under market to get there. The bank will base its response on an analysis of market value (BPO). I've run into this a time or two and I know it is frustrating and counter-intuitive, but until the bank responds to a written offer, you really don't know where they stand as to value and what they will accept.

A question I always ask is whether the bank has resonded to an offer as of yet - more times than not, the listing agent will say, bank will not oppine unless there is an offer to respond to.

Brownie answered:
I live in Mirage and it is a wonderful place to live. There are many activities and you will need to keep a calendar so you can keep track of your activities. Also there are many vacation opportunities.

I know of homes for sale ( I am not an agent). You can e-mail me for further info.

The homes that are mentioned over $375,000 are very few in number. So don't let that put you off.

Hi Judi,

First, to the other just looking. The township will be doing another reassessment to adjust for the price adjustments caused by the dip in the market and foreclosures. You can also do a tax appeal. more importantly, Barnegat is beautiful and the people are very nice and friendly. Come and see and look at other areas as well. I wish for you that you find a place where you will be comfortable. Good Luck! ... more

Edison is a great street. The pool is shoot ( freeze issues)
What are you looking for?
The reason I ask is a boater from this street will take longer to get into the bay vs the other side of the street.
This side has great views of the wet lands.
Let me know if you really need some more info or want to get inside.
