Zillow allows editing control to change photos. Use either the "Public" or "Owner" view to change pictures or go to "More" at the top of the page.

You will have to go to Zillow to update your picture. Use the drop-down (top left) under your current photo to access your profile, and click edit. You will then be taken to Zillow. I think this is the only way since Trulia now "feeds" from Zillow. ... more

Middletown Township is very large and broken up into smaller sections, which New Monmouth is one of them. The township has two separate high schools (HS North and HS South), and there are varying opinions on both. There are also several different elementary/middle schools. Students typically attend the school based on what part of the township they live in. Little Silver has its own elementary and middle school and students typically attend Red Bank Regional HS.

This website has information on different schools throughout NJ:

In my opinion, Little Silver has a more small town vibe in comparison to Middletown, however, both are very active communities.

Best wishes with your search!

thinz answered:
It depends on several things like - did you sign an agreement with the agent and check all the fine print to verify there are no terms for purchasing by the tenant? Some agreements will have a mandatory period of time to pass in order to avoid further fees. Is the agent working for a management company on your behalf? Tom Hinz ... more

Commuting details:
The Colts Glen, Fox Hills and Oak Hill sections of Middletown are all easy commutes to NYC. All are within 2 miles of the train station. Colts Glen is not walkable, the other 2 are and have sidewalks. The train to Penn Station NYC is 1 hr express. The exit 114 GSP to Tpke is 1-1/2 hr or less drive normally. The Belford Ferry is 45 minutes to NYC plus a 10-minute drive to the pier. Exit 114 to the base of Brooklyn Bridge is 1-1/2 to 2 hr. normal. If you are driving subtract 10 minutes using exit 117 and buying in Keyport-Hazlet Area. If you want bus commute, then buy Oak Hill or Lincroft areas - add 15 minutes longer than train plus 10 minutes drive to parking lot. ... more

If you haven't already decided to list with an agent or sell the home yourself, I'd be happy to speak with you as far as what Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has to offer you along with your complimentary NO OBLIGATION property evaluation report.

Judi Monday, CRS answered:
It really depends where the data is syndicating from and in Trulia's case most of it is from a 3rd party vendor. Your agent should be able to tell you where it syndicates from--go to that source and make sure the price has been changed there--it may take another day or 2 for it to crawl its way from there to Trulia and the other sites. ... more

Ashley Cole answered:
VA is 4%, Conventional at 5% down is up to 3% CC, 10% down or more is up to 6% CC, FHA up to 6%, and USDA is up to 6%.
That is correct that the home must appraise with the sales price plus the CC. However, there really isn't anything to worry about as a seller. If it doesn't appraise then just have it in writing per the contract that the CC will be lessened, not the sales price. If it closes and there's any CC left on the table then it goes back in the seller's pocket.

Texas Realtor... However, these are government loans so the down payment and Closing Cost percentage is the same throughout the country. :)

That's a good question. I would speak to the attorney that is representing you in the sale. All banks and short sales have different rules and regulations.
