Mary Petti answered:

fif you were looking at property records on Trulia, the "guestimate" of property value is based on tax assessments, location, and other recent solds, without knowing if it's an updated home or not. Unless this is your house, WHY worry.

A local realtor will be able to compare apples to apples and get a much clearer and accurate idea of true market value.

Don't simply rely on online estimated values, as some may be inaccurate, nor updated; rather review comps with your agent, recently sold similar properties in the immediate area...

For the millionth time;
Trulia does not post the listings here;
Either it is the Listing Agent, or else it is picked up off another Lising site.

Don't blame Trulia.

I consider your question and concern more a social question than a real estate or financial question, although you may want to consider and make sure you have all the numbers straight.

Association fees are different for every building or community, depending on what is included, if you are working with one trusted area Realtor, that Realtor will provide you will all that information each and every time you find something that may work for you, or he or she may even make some really good suggestions about certain places for you!

In an adult community, or assisted living community there are some social events planned throughout and you have equal minded neighbors etc.,
when buying a condo, you are on your own, just as living in a single family home, except that in a condo much is taken care of, no yard to mowe, and many items are taken care of with your monthly assessment fees, but your are very much on your own..

So it is kind of a life style decision more than anything else, often both have a pool, often a door man or they are gated communities.
I strongly suggest you work with a local Realtor who can assist you and get you all the details...
Good luck to you, if you need recommendations for a good Realtor in your area, feel free to get
back to me I gladly recommend a few good ones

John Skronski answered:
Kal - I think generally one could make a case for about a 10% decline in prices. But I could show you properties that decreased more than that, stayed the same, and even increased in value. Unless you get the same property to evaluate that sold during those time periods, you've got to consider buyer motivation, seller motivation, and the inventory at the time of the sales. I you're interested in getting an evaluation on your property, I could be more specific in determining value, but you're asking about Sept 2011, so I don't know why you want that. Let me know if you want my help. Thanks - John

Keith Radhuber answered:
"Good" is a subjective adjective. Realtors are not really allowed to categorize neighborhoods in that manner, since who is to say my subjective opinion is better, worse or more accurate than the next guy? The potential for being discriminatory is great.

Middletown, itself, is composed of many different neighborhoods and boasts 2 high schools.

I would go on-line and look at the township website, look at blogs, gather whatever demographic information you'd like from other sources, and then get "down in the trenches," and actually chat with potential neighbors.

Good Luck!

Scott Godzyk answered:
The only thing that goes agains a huge drop is in most areas of the northeast the amount of listings is down substantially. Cash buyers are still buying at a tremendous rate. Houses that are clean and ready to move in as well as homes priced at or just below market rate are still selling, it is the over priced homes that are left. ... more

Matt Costine answered:
Hi Joe,

Most of the market has been dominated by either first time home buyers or investors buying with cash. These groups traditionally don't buy more expensive homes, they can't afford it or they are only buying "deals" foreclosures and short sales (investors). This is driving the middle class home sellers to reduce their prices until, hopefully they find a buyer. I hope this answers your questions, feel free to give me a call at anytime to discuss your real estate questions and /or needs..All the best Matt Costine Realtor Associate 908 930 8573 ... more
