I know of a home for rent that will allow a small dog or cat in Linwood. Outside of that would you consider owning a home? did you know it is up to 38% cheaper to own than rent? and your security deposit and first months rent could be a down payment if you qualify.......Karen Oostdyk Coldwell Banker ~ Realtor ... more

Hello Sammy!
The property at 17 W. Laurel is a short sale and is now under contract. If you were considering it a good home for a future family did you notice that it is situated on a very busy corner with a right hand turn lane that virtually surrounds the property? Maybe this wasn't a good choice for you after all. The property has been for sale for a long time and needed a lot of work.
Being a first time home buyer can be overwhelming. Buying a home can feel like a full time job for awhile. Buying a short sale home should be considered a loooong sale as it can take many months and the banks can reject the offer after you have waited many months for a response. It can be an extremely frustrating process. Do yourself a favor and only work with an experienced short sale agent if that is the course you intend to take.
Sometimes if a property is part of an estate settlement you can get an equally good buy without the hassle of a short sale. Good Luck to you in your efforts!

Be sure to find out how many payments are due as well. The standard of paying once a month is changing. A lot of condos now have 14 payments a year. In Jan. and June the residents have to make a double payment. ... more

I would look online in newspapers & I have had good luck finding rentals properties all year from them, but not with realtors. Neither of the 2 landlords I rented fro asked for credit investigation & both allowed small pets. Often if your credit is not so good, you can ask to put up an extra month or 2 rent & the landlord will agree. Good lick! Hope you have found something. ... more

Definitely Harbour Cove area as the kids can walk to bay beach, get bus to OC on Shore Rd (if you let them). Sunset Marina is more remotely located and they will be afteryou every second to take them everywhere! Are you sure you want a condo?

It all depends on your Flood Elevation. If you have a particular property in mind, you can do an informal check on You must register to use but then you can check properties to see if they generally will be required to have flood insurance and whether they are in a 100 yr flood zone or a 500 yr flood zone! Big difference in your rates too!

I would be happy to help you find a property!

Somers Point is a great place to live! It is family friendly and has good schools. It is much more reasonably priced than anything in Ocean City yet is just a short trip over the bridge to the beach and boardwalk. It also has great shopping! If you need help finding a place, I would be happy to help you! Check out my website, and you can search the MLS feed, search for properties and be notified when something that matches your search criteria is added to the MLS. ... more
