The bank is going to want to see that you are able to afford the house and come up with the funds necessary to close. If the funds are deposited then they are easy to verify. If the funds are coming to you b gift then a gift letter would likely be satisfactory. If you are waiting for funds from future pay then I would wait till you have those funds. ... more

Short sales are often a challenge, and if there are more than one lien holders the probability of success goes WAY down. Please give me some more information about how many bedrooms, what price range, etc. and I'd be glad to help you. You might enjoy reading my 3rd quarter update on Marlboro real estate- just go to Marboro "Advice" and click on "Marlboro Blogs".

Are you limiting yourself to Marlboro, or would you consider some of the other surrounding towns?

Some homes in Marlboro do have an Englishtown mailing address but that will not effect the schools your children will be attending. However I would like to mention that Marlboro is part of the Freehold Regional school district. All children are buses to school, however depending on the location the high school they attend may vary based on the location. Some go to Colts Neck or Freehold High School, but they all are excellent. The best way to find out is to call the transportation dept of the school district and tell them the address . ... more

Steven Cohen answered:
Not easy on the children but a good financial idea for you. College is expensive enough and it is sound financially to reduce your overhead and your real estate tax bite by downsizing into something that will fit your present needs instead of paying for something you do not need.
I am a licensed Real Estate Salesperson and would be happy to discuss with you your future needs and alternatives. If you are presently not represented by an agent please feel free to contact me at My cell phone is (732) 642-4550.
Good luck to you.

Find a realtor who has experience with builders and new construction. If you want to buy a spot
lot and find an excellent builder....I can help you from start to finish. I will help you design and
customize the house as you wish. Time to build depends on the town, the size of the home
and you the buyer. The more you know and research the products you want in the home, the
faster it can be finished. There are many aspects and phases to constructing a new home. I have
17 years experience in resales and new construction in Monmouth and Ocean County.

This question regarding Rt 18 would definitely depend on how close to Rt 18 you actually are. There some magnificent properties with very large lots over several acres where the actual noise is in the distance and only a hum. I wouldn't rule them out. ... more

Dana Lewis answered:
You should contact a lender for a pre-approval so you and your agent know ahead of time what you are qualified to purchase. If not, you are all just window shopping. When it comes time to make an offer the approval should state the offer price, you might know you can go higher but you might not want to offer that information at the onset. ... more

Richard Schulman answered:
Short sale and foreclosure homes will all be listed on the MLS - and you can find many of them here on Trulia, since most MLS systems sync with Trulia. Pre-foreclosure auctions you will need to track down elsewhere - an agent or title rep may be able to help you out. Make sure you are fully aware of how the auction system works though - you often have limited protection and higher risk than in a standard real estate transaction.

Good luck,

Carol Mazzola answered:
I just checked with the Marlboro Township Planning Board and was informed that there is a small community of 4 homes planned to be built in northern Morganville near Wilson Avenue off Route 79. The average size of these homes is approx. 3,500 sq. ft. and the site is currently being cleared for improvements. Approvals to build have not yet been obtained by the builder. As a Marlboro Township Councilwoman, I have requested that the Planning Board keep me updated on this project's progress. If you feel comfortable forwarding your contact information, (email, etc.) I will keep you updated on this particular project as well as provide you with information on brand new homes currently available in Marlboro that are already built.

Yours truly,
Carol Mazzola

Gail and JoAnna answered:
You've come to the right place! Marlboro offers an assortment of homes built in that time frame. Your price range is going to greatly impact what you find with regard to lot size, basements, desirability of location,etc.

There are many, many newer communities (built post 2000) that range in price from mid $400's to well over $1 million. Where do you fall in there? We can help you with some neighborhood suggestions if you provide a little more detail as to what your are looking for.

Good luck!!
