The property address that you have provided is listed as public record or is off market. That being said, we cannot provide you any more information regarding this particular property. If you want to know more about this home, you can go to the county in which this particular property is a part of.

I think it would be very frowned upon( if not worse), by the Realtor at the Open House!

The host of the Open is a buyer agent who will be available for any buyers who need representation and who have visited.

If you want to increase your business via Open House, you should offer to host them for agents at your Re/Max office there in New Jersey.

Most busy listing agents don't have time to host every Open House they are holding, and will be very happy to allow you to put up all the signs, bring the food and show the home to potential buyers. Your pay for doing this, is the opportunity to meet potential buyer clients.

Best of luck with your Real Estate business!

Currently the lowest priced Ocean Grove rental is $1,050 per month, but it's listed with the usual "No Pets, No Smokers" statement.

As a resident and Realtor in the Community I will tell you it depends on the property you are looking at. Most of Ocean Grove is not in a flood zone... There are only a few areas that will require flood insurance ...
As to a flood elevation certificate most home owners might not have had one done because Ocean Grove was not a Flood Zone and Did not require flood insurance.

I know some of my neighbors have purchased flood insurance and the cost has been from 500 to 2000 per year... I hope that helps...If you have any other questions feel free to email me or go to my web site at

Quoted and locking are 2 different things- you may have failed to lock the rate... therefore you are at the mercy of the market...

With time and patience and the understanding of the risk you take to get such a value. I'm working on 3 short sales right now and there is no way to know ahead of time how they will work out or how quickly you will close. Each sale is different and each bank works differently.
If you need representation from an experienced agent or just need specific questions answered, feel free to reach out to me. I've received my SFR designation from NAR and have completed many of these sales successfully. Closing anywhere from one month to 3 years.

You can offer a letter of explanation to the landlord along with your tenant application and also offer to prepay the entire lease amount or a few months rent up front to show you are sincere. ... more

If you are looking for distressed homes from Sandy, there aren't many in Ocean Grove. But, if you go a few miles south to Belmar or Manasquan, even Pt. Pleasant, there are plenty.
The problem is that the builders are buying these as fast as they hit the market. And some never make the market. I may have one coming on in Avon.
If you reach out to me via Trulia or my website below, I'd be happy to help you further. You may not want to buy in a flood zone. Lots to consider. Hope to hear from you again. We get many people in Southern Monmouth County coming from Chester!

No the homes along Wesley lake in Ocean Grove did well during the hurricane. All of the homes along the lake are elevated and also the lake wall held. The area that was affected was the south end of Ocean Grove when the tide came in the storm surge caused the lake to rise far above ground level mainly due to the lower elevation on that side. Most of the flooding was in basements.

If you have $50,000 you can, if you want to borrow it – not so much.

If you can get past the absurdity of two opposing groups living in “God’s Square Mile at the Jersey Shore”, seemingly annual fires that take two blocks of homes at a clip, a group of realtors that would sell their own mother’s into slavery for dime, and a right wing neo-Christian organization (Ocean Grove Camp Association) financially dependent on monies raised by charging homeowners a land use fee, a fair share of whom are the very people they profess to hate; it is a wonderful place to live.
If you are familiar with the movie “The Truman Show” you’ll understand that nothing here is as it appears and EVERYONE will be in your business.

Thanks for all of your responses. I love being in Ocean Grove and now that I know that the land being owned by CMA is not an issue, my husband and I will look to see what is available.

Hello, I live on the south side of Ocean Grove and we hardly ever have problems parking here. On the north side it's harder to park in the summer-sometimes people leave their cars on one space and walk around the rest of the weekend (such as 4th of July weekend). With so much going on in Asbury Park now, it's easy to shop, go to restaurants, and many other fun activities, both there and in Ocean Grove and Bradley Beach. Even during the blizzard in 2010 when we were snowed in we could walk to stores. There are also some houses in town with garages or driveways. Good luck in your search. ... more

The NJ Transit bus takes approx. 2 hours and fare is $15. You can compare bus/train fees as well as departure/arrival times (link below). There is a morning express train that cuts travel time by 1/2 hour. ... more
