I don't really know but it is a popular area . I know some people that have relocated there from NY
city. They have not mentioned the crime situation. Years ago it was a big resort area
There are other cities in Nj that I know are definate high crime cities but I never heard of lakewood being one of those. You could proberly look up the local papers like the Asbury Press and
get some idea what is going on

Hi Larissa,

Dejavu, when my family came back from being stationed abroad in 1980 we moved to Brick,, lets see if we can do the same for you. The locations you picked are normally more expensive then the numbers you posted. I do have two questions that can make it easier to find something for you. Are either of the two of you age 55 or better? Are you considering a "winter rental" or are you only interested in an annual lease. A "yes" to either will make the search easier, but I'll let you know what I find either way. Thank you and welcome back to the States. ... more

There aren't. However, I believe anyone will stop you from owning one. Living there is another story. Please let me know how I can help

An attorney is not required as the co-op closes these properties. Title work is also not required.

Hello Tom,
I just went through this on a sale 2 weeks ago: they do a pretty basic inspection, if you want to get a more detailed inspection say for mold, any crawl space issues, foundation/structural, window defects, plumbing issues, electrical wiring (detailed inspection) , if there is a fireplace , termites, etc. this would all be done by a Home Inspection not by the towns C/O dept.
It is pretty much your call, if the house appears sound it very well could be, if it is older, or you see issues already of course you should get one, on the other hand, if you know any contractor friends, famlly members et, they can do a similar inspection for you as well.

Good Luck!

Hi Mary

Most homeowners associations in HC (including Silver Ridge) do allow rentals but for some of them you have to own the home for a period of time first (1 year, etc) before being able to rent it out, it would depend on where the home was that you have interest in and what the rental guidelines of that particular community are. There are a lot of good investment opportunities out there-good luck with your search! ... more

Are you looking for an annual lease or a winter rental ? There are 5 rentals in Ocean County in that price range for annual leases . If you are over 55 years old and eligible to rent in an active adult community there are even more. Let me know if you would like the listings for these 5 homes. ... more

We have no idea what house you are speaking about but often I have seen owners list a house for sale or rent and will do whichever comes first to them.

Diane Glander answered:
Ocean County is pretty big. You should answer this thread with where you will be working and how far you want to travel.
Most landlords who work with Realtors will have their agent checking credit reports. Move in costs will usually cost you the first months rent and 1.5 months security deposit.
Private owners do not list their properties on Trulia. You could check out FRBO and other sites. If you have credit issues, you are best to rent from a private owner who usually will not check your credit score, either.
If you wind up looking in Northern Ocean County, I would be happy to help you.

If a home is in pre foreclosure it is not necessarily for sale. If it says pre foreclosure $315, that's the amount that is in default, and not what the home would eventually sell for.

You are right that it is very family oriented. The home prices are a little higher than Seaside. An interesting fact about Pelican Island is that half the island is part of Toms River and half the island is considered Berkeley Township. ... more

Francesca Patrizio answered:
Lynns,

There are a number of variables regarding your question.

(1) Berkely has a large concentrated of significantly oldr 55+ communities
(2) The distance between the two is some 10 miles
(3) Berkely is more inland, while seaside is on the pennisula.
(4) One must consider when the last 10 year township assessment took place in each town.

Hope this helps.

I'm not sure what "go threw" means. If the listing has been taken off by a Realtor, it'll be a real challenge for you to go directly to the bank.

Tim Moore answered:
Why only homes that have once been foreclosed? Why reduce the search to just bank owned homes? All homes for sale must compete for buyers and so they have to be priced to be able to sell and appraise. There are also some advantages to regular owned homes over bank owned ones. ... more

Hi

If it is a short sale the bank does not own it yet. short sale means there is a seller that owes more money to the bank than what the fair market value is. let me know the address I might be able to find out who the lien holder is. ... more
