We moved to South Street in Freehold almost 2 years ago. As one of the main thoroughfares of the town, this is a very busy street with high traffic from both pedestrians and vehicles. However, we have had absolutely no problems with anyone or anything in the area.

We enjoy the diversity of the community and the small town atmosphere. There are several good restaurants along Main Street--all within easy walking distance from anywhere in the Borough. There is a small library, and the town sponsors parades and free summer concerts downtown that are well-attended and very enjoyable.

However, I should add that we are not out late at night, and do not frequent bars or clubs; I suppose our lifestyle limits the likelihood of finding ourselves in difficult situations.

Karim - it will depend on the rush hour nonsense with the Holland or Lincoln tunnels....if one tube is out, forget about it...figure anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour though for normal.
If you leave earlier, you will get there quicker as a rule (before 7am)...
Good luck with your move.

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

It's not just here, it happens on every website that allows owners to post directly. Craig's list is the worst. When you find a questionable listing, click on the address, scroll down to the blue More button on the then hit the FLAG button on the listing page and choose suspected fraud. Or email it to At least that way we can get rid of some of them and when their fraud no longer works they'll stop. ... more

This is an old post but interesting to answer since I hear this question from clients today...
For short sales as we are involved in, the client must use an MLS agent as required by the lender.
As far as earning a ton of money, possibly in the good ole days of a strong market (where everyone under the sun wanted to list homes so they could get a piece of the pie) this would be 'somewhat' true...but no more. Today, if an agent is earning a perceived "ton of money" it is well deserved because of the service they provide. Either thy make a transaction happen or they don't...and if they can't make it happen, they usually drop off. The stats will vary depending on the agency agreements with the agent...gross numbers can look high, but as stated by others here, once you look at the net number, the numbers deflate rapidly. Stats can be found at:
