I would like to remove as soon as possible. I've already removed from Zillow. Will it automatically be removed from Trulia?

I don't think there is much difference as far as quality. The main difference will be in aesthetic preference and budget. Brick homes tent to cost a little bit more, but are usually more desired. It all depends on what you want your home to look like and your budget. http://www.weatherteknj.com/Handyman-Services-Dunellen-NJ.html ... more

Hopefully you have obtained a good appraiser through your lender......Remember it is just the very recently sold homes that will be taken into consideration........Appraisers have a strict system that they should be Following. You should ask an RE agent for some help, as a friend......

But please remember,.As agents we can only nicely provide comps it the appraiser requests them...they may especially if they not from your area...Hopefully, a good appraiser will benefit from the help you agent will give them...Please be aware they also have access to all the comps...good luck with refinancing..

Francesca Patrizio answered:
SR,

Here are some suggestions.

(1) Discuss the matter with your buyers agent
(2) Discuss the matter with your attorney and make sure you order your own survey (which I am assuming you may have already done.
(3) Interview the neighbors, they can hold a plethora of information; and in my view most importantly
(4) Go to the township (or ask your buyer's agent to do so) to determine their position and/or there are any past permit or report issues regarding issues with this basin.

Good luck!

Sincerely,

Hi Js,
I work in this area, Morganville is just a section of Marlboro and there are many nice homes to choose from.
If you want a younger home and just the Morganville section there are plenty to choose from. You really need to give us more specific parameters regarding what you are looking for Ie: style, size, price range, etc. Homes in this area range from the upper $400's to the millions. Feel free to contact me for assistance

HI DAN, I WAS BORN & RAISED IN MORGANVILLE. BACK IN THOSE DAYS, IT WAS MORE LIKE A STEVEN KING NOVEL TOWN, SANS THE MONSTERS. MARLBORO PROPER WAS A SMALL FARMING VILLAGE COMPLETE WITH A GRANGE MEETING HALL, SURROUNDED BY FARMLAND. THE FARMLAND IN MARLBORO IS NOW, FOR THE MOST PART, HOUSING DEVELOPEMENTS. MORGANVILLE SEEMS TO STILL BE IN TRANSITION WHILE RETAINING SOME OF THAT STEVEN KING TOWN AMBIENCE. THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DETERMINE DESIRABILITY IS YOU. ... more

Morganville is the northern sectin of Marlboro twp, It is called Morganville for Postoffices purposes and has its own Zip code, It does not have its own twp or school system it part of Marlboro. Very easy access to commute, it falls between Route 9 and Route 79 and thus is very convinient for the Matawan Train Commute as well as the Buses to NY. Feel free to call me or email me if you have any further questions.

Coco,

Great house, great school system often = great dollars. Tinton Fallas most certainly offers desirable housing, but my current recommednation to you to to keep an eye on the new rail system in northern Monmouth County through Middlsex County (just publisized 5/28/09) that may provide you with additional options in terms of commutable towns.

Sincrely,

It might help if I knew what it was that attracted you to Jackson in the first place. How did you suddenly become "interested" in buying in Jackson?

I like the way the information is presented at this site:

Hope you find it helpful.

Amber Noble Garland answered:
Hi Jennifer:

You've asked some really critical and important questions which require detail responses. I will answer as completely yet succinctly as possible.

1. The development you're speaking of is called "Beacon Woods." Considering there are over 40 homes in the community, 3 homes (at varying prices) being on sale doesn't necessarily send up a red flag.

2. With regard to the "realistic value," there are a number of key factors that go into determining what is fair market value for any of those homes. A few of those factors include:

*Square footage
*Number of upgrades and types of upgrades
*# of days the home has been listed on the market
*Closed sales of comparable homes in Marlboro Township
*# of other competing homes currently active on the market in Marlboro Township

3. Here's a few snapshots of each town you mention (based on CNN/Money's annual "Best Places To Live" 2007/2008 reports):

http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bplive/2008/snapshots/CS3444070.html (Marlboro)

http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bplive/2007/snapshots/PL3448030.html (Morganville)

http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bplive/2007/snapshots/CS3432640.html (Holmdel)

http://money.cnn.com/magazines/moneymag/bplive/2008/snapshots/PL3454690.html (Old Bridge)


4. With regard to Morganville elementary schools, they too receive high marks. In fact you can check out these two websites for accurate statistical data and details about ANY school in the state of NJ (http://www.state.nj.us/education/) or nationwide (http://www.greatschools.net/).

5. By potentially moving to Morganville, Marlboro or Holmdel, you're not only increasing the resale upside for your next home, but you're also placing your children in school systems that will equip them to be even more competitive from an academic perspective. This should be helpful well particularly when they get to the high school age, and need to begin vying for scholarship opportunities for college.

I would be happy to speak with you one-on-one and provide you with more comprehensive data regarding home comparables, as well as school resources.

All the best,
Amber

Hello Cheng, Mike & Julia:

Marlboro Township (including the Morganville section) is a very desirable place to live!

In fact, CNNMoney.com ranked Morganville as a "contender" for consideration as one of the Top Places To Live.

Marlboro Pointe is one of the more prestigious communities in the area. It is compromised of a collection of single family homes ranging from 2600 sq. ft. to as much as nearly 7000 sq. ft.

The builder of the Marlboro Pointe community was a company called Calton Homes, Inc. In 1998 Calton was sold to Centex Homes, Inc. a more well-known builder. Centex is the builder repsponsible for the Freehold Pointe collection of homes near Route 79 & Kazloski Rd. as well.

There's actually a new home listed for sale in Marlboro Pointe on Hickory Ln. which just came on the market 7 days ago from today's date. It's 4-bdrms + 3.5 baths, full finished basement, inground pool priced at $850,000.

If you have additional questions about Morganville, Marlboro Township or homes in general, please feel free to utilize me as a reliable resource.


All the best,
Amber
