I just checked the NJTransit train schedule....they have quite a few leaving in the early morning until early afternoon...then nothing until the evening.
The commute can be a challenge. Depending on where your husband works in NYC it may make more sense to drive to a station closer to NYC and take the train in from there. The Middletown NY station seems to have fewer trains but more spread out throughout the day.
Good luck!

Sure, you could get lucky with that strategy. But in this part of the housing market cycle, you might as well try to win a lottery. So, how did you come to the conclusion that low-balling is the best strategy for you? Are you looking to offer all cash deals in distressed neighborhoods? ... more

If you're referring to Trulia, you'll have to work with a staff member directly. Much of the data on Trulia is from data feeds so changing information may not be possible.

That really depends on several factors that are up to you - which school district do you wish to be in, what kinds of amenities would be important to you, etc. There are quite a few different Pike County communities to choose from - most are similar but have important differences. Feel free to visit my website where I have overviews of many of the communities. I will be happy to talk with you more about what will suit your needs and find the community that is best for you. ... more

If you get an FHA mortgage commitment , I would recommend closing on it & building right away , before the construction costs increase even more with the current higher gas prices .

Seasonal rentals are few and far in between in our area. The major exception would be in the Masthope area, where some owners will rent out their homes during the ski season, being close to Big Bear Ski Area.

R.G. - the best way to accomplish that is to contact a local Realtor and ask them to make an appointment with you to discuss your needs.

Mark you best bet may be to get a buyer broker who can assist you with a search. you may want to hire a buyer broker, you can usually do so at no cost to you, they get paid their commission from the fee advertsised in MLS by the listing agent and paid at closing. This way they can get the information for you and you will have someone assisting you through each step of the buying process. Good luck with your search ... more

Hi. My name is Keith Harris, an Agent with CENTURY21 Roy B. Hull in Dingmans Ferry and Milford PA.
To my experience, I am not aware of any contemplated natural gas drilling in this immediate area. The drillers have been buying rights on properties north and west of here, in Wayne County for instance.

The Marcellus Shale region has been called "The Saudi Arabia of North America", and natural gas is a more cost-effective fuel than oil or porpane, so I do expect future drilling. I have seen some plans, and because the drill heads can be "guided" underground, three or four drill heads in one spot can cover many acres of drilling. The gas deposits are very very deep in the ground, far below the drinking water table, and the State legislators are working very hard to make sure the prisine lands and clean water of Pennsylvania are protected.

I hope that ths is useful information. I live here in Dingmans Ferry, as a full-time Realtor (tm), and I will be glad to provide any possible assistance!

Gold Key Lake is a great community. It is located within 10 minutes of the town of Milford. There are lots of amenities, a beautiful 120 acre lake, club house, tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball field. The dues include sanitation. This is a non - gated community and they do have security that patrol the development and enforce driving regulations.
It is a solid functioning community, great for kids and in a good school district.

That would depend on how long of a commute your husband is willing to take on. Milford is a very pretty little town but this area is not for everyone. :) The taxes and home prices are probably considerably lower than where you are now, but in the long run - is your quality of life going to be affected by the long commute?

Also, be sure to check out the area schools online - such as or other similar sites. Milford is in the Delaware Valley School District.

Good luck! It's a big decision and not one to make lightly.

Anna M Brocco answered:
You may wish to consider improving your credit first and start saving a bit--currently FHA loans do require a minimum credit score of 620 and 3.5% down--there may be some lenders willing to work with a lesser score however, the interest rate may be higher. In the meantime, do pay all bills on time, pay off old debt, dispute any negatives, pay down debt, keep credit cards below 50%, etc. ... more
