Hi Lisa,

I used to manage a real estate office near the intersection. Your assumption is correct. It is a main road in Forked River and the parks do get a spike in traffic when games are about to end or begin. ... more

You'd have to go much lower than just under $100,000. I just sold two houses, one in Brick for just a hair above 100,000 and one in Manchester for around the same price, both of which were over 1,000 sq. ft. 3BR houses, these towns are usually much higher priced than Forked River. Beach Blvd is a busy street and if it's a small bungalow not on the water it would have to be below 75,000. Now, if the house is on the water than just around $100,000 or lower is a great price. This is just my opinion based on what I've been selling in Ocean County. ... more

Ipads are cool but they are about to become obsolete so dont waste your money buying one. They are the biggest rip off. The two biggest downfalls are they dont supposrt flash, and you cant add memory to them or insert sd cards. Anyway, there are a bunch of new tablets coming out on the market this year in time for xmas that will support those things and make the ipad look worthless. ... more

Hi captsnook!

I agree with Rock (as per usual!)..............the busiest isn't always the best - .in general...or, for your specific needs.............scratch beneath the surface.

Certainly, you want an agent experienced and knowledgeable in your area..........but the highest number of sales and listings alone, does not guarantee success.

Interview......ask questions....possibly call, and ask the manager for a few Rock's blog...............and then, make up your mind.Be open to the possibilities.

Best wishes with your sale!

I am so sorry your question went so long unanswered.
In the time from October 1st till today 5 homes sold in Pheasant Run according to the MLS system none were taken off the market. Just before that period we sold a home there and there was a lot of buyers looking in there at that time.

We would love to help you if you are still looking for a home.
Here is what is currently on the market in Pheasant Run

Please feel free to contact us if we can be of any help.

Sounds like you want a CMA. There is not enough information for you to compare. number of baths, garage, size of lot, on the water or off. Too many variables are left unanswered. Call a rea estate agent. ... more

Jim, I live and sell real estate in Lacey. When selling a waterfront home to a potential buyer it is key to determine, what type of boat in use and just how close they want to be to open waters. For some fisherman, taking a 30 minute cruise just to get to the bay is just not allowed! Contact someone in the area that can take you out to see several of the communites. There are over 110 waterfront homes for sale in you have a good selection. Any questions call me @ 609-661-1604. Thank you. Pat Meehan. ... more

I don't think there is anything like a "great agent", only smart, hard working agents.
Sure there are agents that may get alot of listings, because thier name is everywhere, signs, billboards, etc. They may seem to be great agents, but do THEY sell alot, or do others sell for them and make them SEEM to be great. Don't judge a book ONLY by its cover. Ask around, research and see which agent does the MOST to help YOU.
I like to think I am great because I do alot for my customers but I am really just a good agent. Any agent who says they are great are fooling themselves and you.
What you want is an agent who knows how to market well, who works well with other agencies, does a ton of advertising for YOU, not themselves, and most of all, puts your listing on as many internet sites for maximum exposure. Also, you want one who knows where to find just the right property for YOU, not just one THEY want to sell you for the most commission.
I KNOW that I do those things for my customers.
Do I want your business, of course. Are there better than me, of course...but I hate to think so.

If you wish any help, please call; if not only to work with me, but also if I can help direct you to someone with whom YOU would like to work with.

You may contact me anytime and I hope to hear from you, if only to give you advice.

Remember: there are no "great agents", just hard working ones.

Best wishes,

If you don't have a realtor friend that can help you get that information, stop by and ask the neighbors. Neighbors are always a good source of information about the neighborhood. As a Realtor I ask, and I encourage my prospective clients to ask the neighbors about the neighborhood. ... more
