I think you might want to check with someone that specializes in bugs...I've never run into them, I've lived in NJ swamps, pinelands and coast. That's not to say they won't be waiting for you, but an exterminator is your best bet to know of their whereabouts. ... more

Typically in NJ we use $125-$200 per square foot so estimate $150 for your ballpark figure. Your taste, number of bathrooms and included upgrades will determine the rest.

Most southern Ocean towns are very kid friendly. Some schools offer different programs so it would probably be a good idea to discuss you family's particular needs to find a town that fits

On the southeast border of the state, and they go all the way down. The first beach is Sandy Hook. The first beautiful beach and my favorite is Spring Lake which is Exit 98 on the Garden State Parkway. The parkway goes by the mile -- so -- if you live near Exit 120, you have 22 miles to Exit 98. The shore goes all the way down to the beginning of the parkway, down in Cape May, about an hour south of Atlantic City, which is Exit 38.

Other beaches of note include Pt. Pleasant which has amusement parks, Belmar, more of the young day tripper scene, and Wildwood, and Long Beach Island. They are scattered about. Spring Lake is much quieter.

NJ magazine publishes a guide to the shore every year. I've linked to one site that links to the entire shore area. If you need a referral in Spring Lake Area and points around, I have the perfect agent, Katie Doyle, who is a member of the mls, and we do many referrals.

From what I understand this market has been stagnated by a local tax war which could very well lead to the declinein sales.

I would ask:

(1) r u from North jerey?

(2) If so, why no consider other waterfront coummunities not so far south.

Call or email of u would like to discuss further.

Love and Peace,
Francesca, Realtor
