I'm sure you've heard this before, but let me reitterate "now is a GREAT time to buy a home." Not a "pick up line"...it's just the plain truth. Interest rates are still low, and prices are lower than they've been in quite some time.
If you have equity in your current home you have the potential to make a profit on it's sale, and you can possibly negotiate an attractive price for your future home.
I am familiar with the development you live in. There is a strong demand for homes in Yardley Manor, so if you decide to list your home you should fair well.
The caveats involved are:
*The homes must be priced correctly
*Shown in the best possible light visually
*The agent must be able to effectively explain the Matawan/O.B. connection to potential buyers
Sure...A home similar to yours, but one that is located in Holmdel may cost more. However, it doesn't have to necessarily cost $200K more. In fact, I can think of a lovely home in particular in Holmdel that you could purchase for far less than a $200K markup. If your interested, let me know and I will email it to you directly.
I recently sold a single family home a few blocks from you on a cul de sac (Clearbrook Ct), and another one of my buyers almost recently purchased one of your neighbor's homes on Edinburg.
Need more specifics? Want to discuss your options? Feel free to reach me on my cell. I'd love to talk to you live.
