We are looking for some new or fairly new 4 bedroom homes in the Bridgewater area and can spend upto $550K.

Asked by Matt, Clinton, MI Tue Jul 1, 2008

Is this too much to ask for? We found a couple of new homes but in bad neighborhoods.

I'd be glad to assist you with your request. There are properties in the area that meet your qualifications and although I realize this is an old request revived by trulia, I'm posting a reply like so many other agents so that others with the same interest can take note.

If you choose me as your agent or anyone from my office, we are one of the few in New Jersey that offers some of our commission as money back to buyers at closing in the form of a buyers rebate. This is not money we add on top of the sales price then offer back to you as a concession as some brokers try to trick you into doing. If you would like more information about the rebate, I'd love to discuss it with you. The state does require us to go over certain disclosures before working with any clients when offering rebates such as to consult your tax professional about possible additional tax implications in regards to receiving the rebate (meaning you'll possibly have to pay taxes on the money you get back).

I can assist you with all the stages of your purchase. Let me know if you'd like to work with me or any of my agents and we'll take it from there.

Very do-able. Newer construction along Vanderveer built from 1994 to 2005 goes for anywhere from the high-$400s to the mid-$500s. Very good selection to choose from as well.

Jeannie Feenick of http://www.feenick.com back again to check in - by now you have probably found and settled in to a home in New Jersey. If not, time has been your friend. Our market - just like the rest of the country - has continued to correct itself since last year when you first posted your question. Prices are down and borrowing rates are terrific - that combination is usual by historical standards and unlikely to last long. I have every confidence that with the passage of time, we will look back with the wisdom of hindsight and regard this time as a real buying opportunity.

If you are still looking in New Jersey - please reach out to me, I can - and would be honored to - assist you.

Best,
Jeannie Feenick

Matt,

As others have said Bridgewater is a large Township. There are a number of homes that meet you price criteria, however, you and I know that within any price range there "needs & wants". You indicate you "need" a 4 bedroom. Are there additional "needs" such as garage size, property size, basement # of baths, etc.? What about "wants"?
I suggest that you work with a good Realtor who will listen to both your "needs & wants". This is the PERFECT time to purchase! Analysists point to the fact that, although there may be a bit more "correction" the worst (for the seller) is behind us. With that said, the next thing to look at is the Mortgage rates. Again, analysists look to a increase in rates that will bring them up to about 7% (depending on your history) from the 6.35%. This increase may over shadow any price errosion and lowers your buying power.
If I can assist you give me a call.

Hello Matt,
You are interested in a very nice town--I love Bridgewater! However, Bridgewater Twp. is very, very large. There are many different neighborhoods and sections of town, each with its' own personality and feel, as well as price points. I do quite a bit of business in Bridgewater Twp., and would be happy to discuss your needs and preferences. I think you can do very well in Bridgewater within your price range, for a new or newer home.

Blessings,

I've got a fantastic place for you if interested about 12 miles away in Franklin Twp. which was recently ranked the 5th best place to live in America according to this years Money Magazine report. I provided the links to it below for you. Best part is you can stay below your budget and have features in a home with LOW taxes, Everything New and features found only in homes costing at least 3 times the price.

The owner had to relocate for her job after just finishing her dream home. They took an existing home, totally gutted it, expanded it to twice the original size and remodeled it not leaving anything original other than some of the framing. I'd do some landscaping but the house itself looks like something out of better homes and gardens. Take a look for yourself, call me to schedule a showing it really is a stunning home. Why pay more for less? Best part is the owner is negotiable on the price. Let me know, my contact info is at the bottom.

Matt, as the majority states, there are many homes that are available in this price range in Bridgewater. The easiest way to spot the "nicer" homes are to ask for the assistance of a licensed realtor. Interview a few, and discuss all your needs and expectations you are looking for in a home. Remember that your interpretation of a "bad neighborhood" may vary from other people's perspective so you want to explain what about those neighborhoods you dislike to help eliminate any homes that fall under that undesired criteria.

If you haven't already found an agent you feel comfortable with, feel free to contact me. My office is in Hillsborough (which is also another desirable area many people consider along with Bridgewater). I'd be glad to discuss in more detail what properties are currently available and answer any other real estate questions you may have!

Hi Matt, Jeannie Feenick here with Weichert. There are a number of homes I'd like to discuss with you that meet your specifications. In particular, four come to mind, all built 1997 or after, 4 bedrooms, 2.1 baths and priced in the $555 - $569K range - I think we can negotiate any one of them into your comfort zone.

I know the area well, just hosted an Open House this past Sunday in the very area I'd like to show you - close to transportation, highways, shopping - very convenient.

You can find me online at http://www.feenick.com - there you can search freely for properties (no registration requried) - I've got a powerful IDX link to the MLS. You'll also find helpful community information and links.

Cell is the best way to reach me 908-337-0943; email is also good, I check it regularly through the day and evening. Hope to hear from you soon!

Best,

Too much to ask for? ...maybe. What you can focus on is homes in solid locations that have some recent updates to them that will offer you some modern amenities. These will prove to be better investments long term. What your looking to spend is reasonable, and if Bridgewater is your only option, with a little time and effort, you should find it. If you would consider a slightly more broad search area, without pushing your commute or sacrificing the quality of the school system, there could be other options.
Feel free to reach out for me for a consultation. timkelly@prunewjersey.com Best of Luck!
