Hi Jecka000,

The residences at Vail Homes (Alfred Vail Mutual Association) have always represented great value for buyers, but people don't understand how the setup is a bit different and I believe this leads to sluggish sales. For example, the homes are part of a Co-op, very unusual here. Until recently, they were heated with propane, which local buyers tended to shy away from, but this unit has been converted to natural gas - a big plus. They are also in Shrewsbury Township, which flies under the radar in many home searches. It shares a zip code with Eatontown, but is not part of Eatontown, nor part of Shrewsbury Borough, children attend Tinton Falls schools.

Rentals are allowed on a VERY limited basis, there is a wait of years to be allowed to rent a unit.

This is a great little home - you can't rent a home for the cost of owning this one. If you are ready to buy, give me a call and grab this one. I sold two homes recently in Shrewsbury Township, so I can walk you through the buying process in this unique village.

Hi Jecka000:-) My husband and I currently live in Alfred Vail. We haven't listed our property yet, but would like to. Are you still interested in the area?

Check out the difference between a co-op and a condo, and it may start to unravel some answers tor you.

On the fly.
