Just like all houses are unique, so is every sale. First thing you'll want is for a local real estate agent to take a look at the house, discuss what repairs you think it needs and come up with a marketing plan.

I'm in the Forked River office and live in Bayville. If you'd like me to take a look at the house and give you ideas, give me a call at 732-278-5377.

That is a long abandoned Bell Telephone (yes, it's been THAT long) station in Bayville. It's been like that as long as I've been down here, since 1984, and I've heard nothing about what is going to be done with it. ... more

2thebay,
my guess is your a boater, maybe fisherman based on your screen name and your interest in a water accessable community. Good Luck Piont is in the Berkley Twp section, it borders Ocean Gate. It has been home to ATT off shore tele comminications for a very long time, you may have seen all the poles in the marsh land on the point. this point has always been a good location for catching crabs too.
This area is truly off the beaten path, and unless you really want to go there, most just pass it by on Rt 9. There is a popular resturant you may have heard of there, called Waters Edge, popular with boaters. and locals.
Your question was not exact as to what kind of answer I could give you, however if your concidering looking for homes for sale in that area, I can help you with that.

The answer to this question isn't as clear cut and precise as one might want. People on both sides have their opinions as to why or why not wind farms should be allowed in their towns, and Ocean Gate, New Jersey probably isn't much different on that accord.

A salient difference between the affect on real estate values in big/small towns is the size of the wind farms, and the proximity to homes, and the current market values of properties in the direct vicinity of the wind farms.

Yes, Ocean Gate may have one windmill, then another, then another....until they are sprouting out of the ground like daises. But for now, I think residents of Ocean Gate can feel confident that their home values will not slip tremendously due to the windmill--just as long as the erection of the mechanical pinwheels do not turn out to be like the row of windmills that blow speedily along Route 30 in Atlantic City.

Kathy,

A good suggesstion would be to find out if there is any zoning OR building requirements in the area before you start. Also, talk with a professional builder to see if the existing structure can handle the stress of another floor (and if the ground below is secure on it's existing foundation. Sometimes it may be better to start from scratch than to add.
As far as cost, it depends on who and what you want to build, again a good professional builder can tell you or give you a close estimate. Taxes would be based on the tax base itself and may not catch up for a year or so. Again, do some homework on the taxes in the area.

If I can help further, just call

I would recommend checking with your auto insurance company. A company like State Farm or All State can provide you with a precise number for the area. If the home is in a development which has a HOA, then you will need to check with the association to find out how much the monthly charges are. For flood insurance you may need to go outside your typical insurance carrier - CHECK HERE
