Jim Olive answered:
As with many things, Helen, it all depends! Did the deal fall through for one of the reasons that the contract was contingent on? For example, if you had an inspection contingency, got the inspection results, found that there was a flaw you were unwilling to deal with, you can break the contract and get your deposit back. Similarly, if you could not get a loan on the property (whether it was due to your credit or a low appraisal of the house) and you had a financing contingency in the contract, you are released and the deposit is returned. If the deal fell through, however, because you just got cold feet, then you risk losing the deposit. Best of luck...Jim ... more

Good luck with it, then keeping them all happy and agreeable and it will not be easy. Co-ops or fractional ownership or that stuff is tough because everyone must agree. You might be better finding a time share which is about the same thing. ... more

In northern NJ we routinely use attorneys to handle our closings.

Other areas in the state - southern NJ is one - use the Title Companies - check with your agent to see what he or she recommends.

Best wishes..........

It is always easier to use a local lender , no matter where you are buying. A lender who is experienced with lending in a specific area already has the answers to many of the questions that could arise, making the process much smoother for you, and them, to complete the processing of the loan.

I agree with Caroline there aren't many yearly rentals in Ocean City to choose from. Include what you are looking for as far as how many bedrooms and baths, your budget and if you prefer a certain location. I would be happy to help! ... more

Peter Adams answered:
Hi Frank,
From what I am seeing, the single family market has been very strong. Properly priced homes are selling quickly in the single family home market as I have seen a shift from condo to single family buyers. I currently have qualified buyers that are having a very tough time finding a single family home in Ocean City in certain price points. I hope that helps a little bit and if I can help you out in anyway, please give me a call on my direct line at 609-432-3634 and we can further discuss pricing and current market conditions.
Have a Great Day!

A home inspetion is always a good idea. You just never know what you will find.

Yes, and again definitely yes. As you check the market you will see that short sells are a very small percentage. It is becoming a market that is neither buyers or sellers. Things are becoming neutral. ... more
