Problem could be that the original price was to high. There are larger lots available and if that is what you would like, and you like the area then I would suggest Brookville manor section of Barnegat. Same builder. Present price on Avalon is good but if you have kids they have a longer day with the bus ride. Would be more than happy to discuss how we can help.
Actually prior to going to work for the buider, I was the agent for 12 Avalon. That is an unfortunate situation. The previous owners were divorced and neither one made enough money to buy one out. The home had 2 mortgages which totaled more than 450K. Again if can help you with new housing options, please let me know.609-698-7700--Rick
