Yes, definately tell your current agent what's up. They can help you find an agent in the other state and negotiate a referal fee. That way they both get paid if you buy elsewhere.

Top schools exist in both towns;Haddonfield has rail link to center city; From Moorestown it's 20 minutes by car plus parking. Both are historic homes from the late 1600's, linked by Kings Highway on up to Princeton. Lot sizes are much smaller in Haddonfield, and Camden County taxes are higher for comparable homes. More land, several newer developments, upscale shopping at Centerton Square Mall are advantages offered Moorestown. Then again, I have been a resident and active in school and town organizations over the years, so it is possible I am a wee bit biased! ... more

Moorestown does have sections with differing characteristics. You could be closer to Kings Highway, which is the spot for restaurants and shopping ... very walkable area. There are sections that offer historic older homes, there are subdivisions of newer homes, areas of smaller less expensive homes. And of course, grand estates. You really can't go too wrong in Moorestown ... just depends on your budget and tastes. If you have any specific questions about the area in terms of types of homes, averages of pricing, etc, feel free to contact me directly at

I am a native Brooklyn girl myself, so I would love to help you!

Try to understand the legal difference between buying a home "subject to" and assuming the loan. When a property owner sells his home "subject to" the existing mortgage, the buyer must make the payments on the mortgage or lose the property by foreclosure. (That is the same as if the seller were not making payments on his loan.) However, the foreclosure will never show up on the buyer's credit record because the buyer was not legally obligated to make the mortgage payments on that existing loan. Such a foreclosure on a "subject to" mortgage will adversely affect to seller's credit record, not the buyer's. The safest way to protect both buyer and seller is to put the property in a land trust. Also, to secure the sellers interest, prepare a Judgment Note, sign it and have it recorded at the Court house. (Judgment Note download-
Make sure there is a clean and clear title, see if there is at least a 3 year history of on time payments. if you still are unsure, go to join-its free- and read the posts of real estate investors around the world. It is an excellent site to learn about real estate transactions. You might even repost your question there. Hope this helps. Lee Russell/Cleer-Enterprises-Amarillo, Texas

Hi Mattsgirl, I am an award-winning NJ broker serving the Moorestown area, so I can speak as to the facts surrounding this question.

I have a 2 part answer:

1. In NJ, we have a Buyer Agency Agreement, but many Realtors do not get them signed. Do not confuse this with the Consumer Information Statement (CIS) which is just a notice that we have to give our clients. If you did not sign anything other than the CIS, then you are not obligated to work with that Realtor.

2. However, if he showed you the home you want to purchase, he has what is called "procuring cause," but that can be discussed at a later date.

I hope this helped answer your question. Feel free to contact me in private if you have any further questions.

The home must be priced correctly according to fair market value. If the house is not priced correctly and is placed on the MLS you will still have difficulty selling it.

What kind of shopping are you looking for? Main St. in Moorestown has the Running Company (great for specialized running stuff), T.R. Bell (vera bradley, candles, gifts,cards etc..), Happy Hippo (toy store for the kids), Carls Shoes, Bedazzled (glitzy, girly stuff), small art gallery next to bedazzled, Signature Designs (jewelry store and some wonderful pottery)...and more...Moorestown is doing a great job picking up its retail game on Main Street. As previously stated by others, the Moorestown Mall is great for your typical anchor/mall stores, then East Gate Square right next to that. Also, only 10-15 min. away you have the Cherry Hill Mall with more upscale stores (Nordstrom, Crate and Barrel) and a new shopping center right down Rt. 70 on the corner of Haddonfield Road and Rt. 70...hope this information helped! Happy Shopping! ... more

Eugenia (Jean) Bonilla,ABR,SRES,ASP answered:
A Seller can't hold you hostage because of a dispute with his agent. Get a good local attorney who specializes in Real Estate. Unfortunately, unless both parties agree, the escrow is held until a court determines disposition of same. Maybe contact the manager of the listing office to see if they can resolve this matter. ... more
