Hi Joe,

I was curious whether you have acted on your potential purchase of a "fixer upper" in Spring Lake.

There are great values in play right now. Sellers have recognized that right pricing their home will result in a timely sale. After 2 decades in the new homebuilding industry as an attorney and director of marketing, sales and operations for national homebuilders, I have honed my negotiating skills. I welcome the opportunity to assist you in your search. I am now a full time realtor with Ward Wight Sotheby's International Realty in Spring Lake, I own a business in town and have lived in the nearby community for 17 years.

Please feel free to contact me at if I may assist with your search.

Thank you.

There is currently one lising in The Commons and it currently under contract @ 374,900 in 114 days (not bad in today's market).

Going back to 1995 , there have only been 5 units that sold on the open market (i.e., via the MLS)

What does this mean to you? Well, quite possibly (1) this development is sound and most owners prefer not to sell anytime soon (2) there aren't any costly "assessments" looming (2) the maintenace fees are quite reasonable comparatively (3) if you have an opportunity to purchase/sell indepent of a Realor, it may be worth the investment in time.

The Commons is rather close to the train station, so I would be aware of specific location and potential RR noise if that bothers you at all. Howver, I must say taht I have a good friend who lives in the same location and she never mentions the RR as being an issue.

Love and Peace,
