Yes, this is not a realtor only site...buyers, seller and their agents may post questions on trulia.
If you are interested in renting a home, you may find a small single story in Greenbriar 1 to rent.

Tuckerton Meadows is one of the more family oriented communities within town. The townhomes are for the most part well kept, and display quaint character if you observe from the main road and parking lots. Years ago there were a few 'bad seeds', but over the last few years, the community has cleaned up tremendously. If you are an upstanding citizen who pays your dues and keeps your property looking neat and tidy, then you will have absolutely nothing to worry about. The association dues are EXTREMELY low for Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Currently the dues are $114 which is unheard of in the state of NJ. Some of the units have gotten new roofing, windows, and many internal upgrades. You get what you pay for...if you see a low priced unit, you can gather there is a good chance the owners did not upgrade the unit etc. If you see a higher priced unit, expect the unit owners actually cared and put their heart and soul into the unit. I always say you get what you pay for. Sure you can get a unit for dirt cheap with the economy and people's hardships, but don't expect to not have headaches the rest of the time you live there. I can tell you we spent a ton of money upgrading our unit, and between the marble and bamboo flooring we installed as well as the new AC coil and windows, our unit is one of the most efficient on utilities. Electric bill is well under $100 and gas bill is not much over $100. We took utility efficiency into mind when we made those particular upgrades, and it paid off. The community is a great place to live if you have a small family or are single. People are always watching out for one another, and it is a tight knit community in some of the Courts. I highly suggest the area, and safety is A+ as the police ride through regularly and everyone always looks out for one another. Happy hunting! ... more

If they won't bend, rent it out and use the rent money to get a cheap place until you can move back in. Maybe the calendar year of turning 55.

Hi Halley,
I can understand your frustration but let me clarify, if you are asking about the rentals in 08008 zip code maybe I can help you understand a bit better. If this is not related to the 08008 rentals then my answer would be different. I will also agree with Kenneth, this is not the catagory to post this type of question, it should be in the "agent to agent" posts.
The fact is as an agent you should call to pick up a key and preview the properties , then get your questions together for the listing agent. After all if you are selling/renting Real Estate, it is your job to know the inventory, not depend on the listing agents to fill you in.

Once Sandy hit LBI, we had a tough enough time finding rentals in homes that were undamaged. The people that needed to be placed here are those working to rebuild the Island and it has been very time consuming to help these contractors and owners who had many questions and concerns. . Another problem is since it is a summer resort, most owners are fearful of putting a tenant in a house that will be difficult for them to leave because their home is still damaged. These owners need to have their property available for the summer tenants, not extending a winter lease.
I think the mentality here is the less information in a listing, the more questions tenants and buyers will have and it prompts a call. I have never been too busy to answer questions for anyone calling on my listings, nor have I ever found another agent too busy for mine. Unless of course they are involved in a Short Sale and do not have the answers you are looking for. I wish you the best of luck in the business.

Hi Larissa,

Dejavu, when my family came back from being stationed abroad in 1980 we moved to Brick,, lets see if we can do the same for you. The locations you picked are normally more expensive then the numbers you posted. I do have two questions that can make it easier to find something for you. Are either of the two of you age 55 or better? Are you considering a "winter rental" or are you only interested in an annual lease. A "yes" to either will make the search easier, but I'll let you know what I find either way. Thank you and welcome back to the States. ... more

Unfortunately many agents want to get as much exposure on their listings as possible so they add in condos etc. under single family category so other agents dont overlook their listings. I know can be misleading to an internet buyer but it does help them sell these properties. When people look in beach towns they are often looking in price ranges that are lower than what is realistic for the location and size of house they think they want. By adding in these lower priced units the buyers will take a look at the listing because of the price.

I am sorry it has misled you in your search.

One think I do want to tell you is that LBI is heating up. I just lost out on a sale because we got into a bidding war and the other buyer topped our highest by a considerable amount and went all cash, no mortgage so they won.
I now have 3 buyers on the island and 1 is going to be bi coastal from california. When you start to see that type of interest it won't be long for prices to rise.

If I can help you please call or email. We have a top agency on LBI.

Hi mike

Yes it is true Long Beach Blvd has heavy traffic in the summer but it is orderly and slow moving. The speed limit is enforced to prevent problems. There are many nice homes on LBB. I think this is a personal decision on what type of block you would like to be on and if that bothers you. I love LBI and feel that any area is a good area. Think about how far you are from the beach and bay at any point on the island. You can not find many places on the jersey shore that offers the same logistics.

My suggestion is to look at the house and if it is in a spot that you like. Take a look at the price and the comps to make sure it is priced correctly. You should stand in front of the house for a while to see if the spot is right for you. I know the seasonal traffic has not built up yet but just standing or sitting there for some time will give you a good idea of how it would be to live there. I would ask the homeowner or an agent to call the homeowner to let them know what you are doing so they do not think you are loitering.

Since the prices have come down on LBI it has now created a lot of interest in the area. I have 3 buyers right now looking on LBI and 2 are from California! This is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy your dream vacation home at an affordable price.

If you need help call me. I cover LBI as one of my shore towns and we have a top agency on the island.
Of course if you are already working with an agent please disregard, I do not intend to solicit you from another agent.

Hope that helps
