No actually if you had a buyers agent then they absolutely should have informed you. That to me is a serious breach of trust and a really poor representation of your interest. I hope they have insurance. Talk to a lawyer about this. I'd be curious if your agent knew about the problem. ... more

Hi Afragetta

That is an interesting question. As far as I know there is nothing that states such noises must be disclosed.
We always tell our clients who are buying in an area with noise to sit outside and different times to hear if the noises will bother them. As far as flying or explosions I dont believe it is necessary to disclose such issues.

Here is a case where a local realtor who really understands the neighborhood can add tremendous value to the buyer.

Good Luck

You can go to the town municipal offices they have all the properties coded for flood zones. Remember even though a property may be classified in flood zones does not necessarily mean it floods. I live in a flood zone on the water but I have never had a flood and this house has never flooded since it was built. You need to research the property. Look at sellers disclosure on the property for any history of water damage. Inspect a property carefully before buying.

First I would start with the town's municipal building to find out whatever you can about flooding then work from there.

good luck

You need a fire inspection before you occupy a property. You don't need a fire inspection in order to close, unless you lender requires that you obtain one. Depending upon the township, you may need a town inspection for a Certificate of Continued Occupancy in addition to the fire inspection. That is true in Freehold. ... more

Hi RdShupe,
I'm not sure what your price range is for selling / purchasing, but overall, in my opinion, Tinton Falls, Ocean Township, West Long Branch are good schools systems. Great affordable private schools available also if you are looking for the faith based education. Please call or text me to discuss, 732-567-4001 if you do not already have an agent working with you.

Hi, Terry,

If you have to rub up against it, you'll have fewer lookers and then probably a commensurate drop in price. By what percentage, I couldn't say. Tinton Falls is shaped like NJ. The landfill is in the southern most section of town. I, myself, live on Hope Road between W. Park and Industrial Way, the southern end of town, and I'm not aware of the landfill unless I come home late at night and drive directly outside the facility, and smell that burning plastic smell. Probably being 1/2 mile to a mile away by the way the crow flies, there is NO day to day evidence of the existence of the facility.

On the other hand, I know a Colts Neck broker who dismissed Tinton Falls out-of-hand because of the existence of this facility within its boundaries (and backing the Naval facility).

Also. There are Wayside, Ocean Twp (I"m Wayside, Tinton Falls) residents who are actually in much closer proximity to the facility than I.

I don't know if you're coming or going, but I hope this helps.

Manalapan is a nice town and there are no areas to avoid. The school system is known to be one of the best in the area. There are several parks and recreational activities for the family.

Some parts of Manalapan are closer to Route 9 which is good for shopping but can be congested at times. Overall it is a very nice town.

Please feel free to contact me at 732-580-5309 or if you would like to discuss this further.

Cara Realtors answered:

You are looking in a great spot for a place to buy. These towns, particularly Manasquan and Point Pleasant Beach, are generally quite pricey, but absolutely superb places to live!

Our agency is located in downtown Point Pleasant Beach, and is located just a few short blocks to the ocean. Summer time in Point Pleasant Beach is busy on the local thoroughfares, but there is a heavy amount of pedestrian traffic in the quaint boutiques downtown and near the boardwalk and beaches that span along Ocean Avenue. Though it is busy in the summertime, there are plenty of residents that remain in their homes year-round, and the attractions generally draw the attention of families due to the large amount of family activities offered.

All the shore towns you listed above are quality places to live and draw a fair amount of crowds due to the beaches and local area attractions that they all offer.

Some drawbacks you might consider is that there is lots of people whom park on-street that could possibly park in front of your home and the constant summertime coming-and-going might be irksome during the day, though it generally dissipates towards the evening. Also, if you are not into large crowds of people looking to visit the beaches and all the beautiful offerings the town has, than a little bit further inland away from the main attractions like the beaches and boardwalk might be a better bet.

Either way, the Jersey Shore towns you are interested in are absolutely beautiful, and offer families, couples, singles, and day trippers alike all enjoy the beauty and splendor of everything the pristine beaches and quaint downtown villages these towns have to offer.

If we can be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact our office!
