Hi Anna

I am thinking you may be referencing 99 Sailfish which is currently on the market for $252,000. However this property is a short sale not a foreclosure. The yearly rentals have been turning over quickly and lease purchase options are rare. I would be happy to assist you with either a rental or a purchase but would need more information from you to evaluate your best options. Please contact me to let me know how I can help.

Best Regards,

Margaret Steadman

A riparian grant signifies ownership of the docks and piers and no annual fee is due to the State of New Jersey. An upfront charge is paid to the State for this ownership. A riparian license signifies a license to use the docks or piers but an annual fee needs to be paid to the State of New Jersey. These fees may increase so its important to consider the cost of the annual fee when purchasing a waterfront property.

The green fly situation is greatly exaggerated. When I was a kid, & much of the island was undeveloped, they could be bothersome. Now, they are pretty much confined to the far north end of the island, the back bay areas, & some of the golf course; this is their habitat. In very hot, still weather they can be a problem in those areas. when there is a breeze much less so. Where I live, for example, in the center of the island, I literally never see a green fly. There are also green flies in other towns, inland in Galloway township, wherever it is marshy. ... more

rocco asked:
in some cases twice as high on a comparable property ? I know it is in another county (atlantic vs. cape may), but is it because the properties are 'over-accessed' ?

Hi Jane, It depends on a number of factors, including the location of the property, age of structure, and how many flood vents it may have. All flood insurance has a maximum coverage of $250,000 and the rate is based on the above factors and a flood elevation certificate (generally prepared by a surveyor). Two local insurance agents to check with are Heist Agency in Margate and Siracusa in Atlantic City. ... more

I don't live there, but my sis does. They are on the north end. They aren't always out, it depends on the weather and the winds. There were many, many times I was at her house and there were no greenheads. But when they are out they are on the northend and they could be brutal. ... more

Yes, an agent SHOULD help you with this type of transaction. In today's climate there is no benefit to trying to do it yourself. The blog below may help you.

Ageliki Christodoulakos answered:

Let me try to understand your question. You want two sell two properties as one. This will be a contigency clause meaning that you need to clarify if a person is interested in the one property they will need to purchase the other at the same time. This makes the house pretty much harder to sell unless you mean that (If you buy this house you get the other house) which is an incentive and makes it alot easier to sell.

Linda DAlessandro answered:
I had a similar incident happen to a duplex that was going into foreclosure. The duplex was pending a condo conversion but the bank would not allow the sale unless there was a consecutive sale on the other condo at the same time. Needless to say the property went into foreclosure and is still sitting.

Your best recourse is to speak directly with your lender prior to a condo conversion and find out what the stipulations are on the loan.

Hi Steven.

I have to say I am not familiar with your area as I am in North Jersey nor am I familiar with that type of dwelling. Is it on the lines of a duplex only not side by side by over and under? Like a two family setup? I'm assuming since he's selling one level - it is deeded as two separate units? All utilities billed separately? Each unit is taxed separately?

I find it interesting and am looking forward to other responses.

John Sacktig answered:
Well, the market is now. People list their homes in order to close by the end of the school year. If you are thinking about listing.. now is the time.

Now is also the time to jump inot the game.. if you are ready to buy get out there! Some people like to wait.. then they end up settiling on a house rather then buying the house they want. If it is going to be for sale.. it is probably goping to happen now ... start looking. Get pre approved with a BANK, not Bob's Mortgage Brokerage, a real bank that can get the loan done. then move forward.

Good luck -
