Hi Mathew,

After SuperStorm Sandy , the rentals in the area were swallowed up very quickly. As an example of how hard it will be to find a 4 bedroom rental, I have one 4 person family renting in Edison (75 minutes drive) and a five family displaced family now renting in Woodbridge. These are families that have lived in Point Pleasant year-round for over 10 years each and are commuting their kids to school everyday. ... more

Hi Aimee,

The system seems to have cut off part of your question. Do you need information on homes for sale in Point Pleasant or Point Pleasant Beach ? Before I switched to RE/MAX, I was the general manager of a realk estate company in "point", I am sure I can get you the information you are looking for. Thanks and have a Happy New Year. ... more

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

Don Tepper answered:
Unfortunately, probably not.

I ran a listing of all properties within my MLS--and that includes some in West Virginia and some in Maryland (as well as a large area of Virginia). I went all the way up to $90,000--keeping it below $60,000 would have cut almost all of them out. These are all waterfront, though in most cases the waterfront is a river, not the ocean. (I noticed at least one on the bay, though.)

Here's what's out there now:

One positive aspect is that very few are under contract, and a lot of them have been on the market for awhile. That means the seller (whether it's a foreclosure or an individual) may be more willing to take a deep discount on the asking price.

Hope that helps.

A seasonal rental can be a month to month or a short term rental for a certain amount of months.Usually they are furnished. Sometimes thay are rented for vacation purposes and other times they are rented off season after Labor Day until late Spring .These are very common at the Shore towns. A 12 month rental means you are commiting to year lease & they are usually unfurnished. ... more

Gosh. Ask your local attorney for a referral.

Or, presumably, you're using a Realtor in or near Point Pleasant. Contact your Realtor and ask for a suggestion of a good real estate attorney.

In other words, the people you're already dealing with really are in the best position to help you.

Good luck.

Much will depend on what best means to you--visit the area more than once and at different times of day, look for everything that is important you, possibly chat with locals, get a sense of belonging, etc., then make your determination-- real estate professionals are prohibited from “steering”—enticing a buyer to purchase, or not, in specific neighborhoods. ... more

Gina Chirico answered:

Various stages of foreclosure represent different phases. If a notice of default or notice of lis pendens if filed - the house may not actually be for sale - they are in pre-foreclosure. A lot of different things can happen in pre-foreclosure stage..the owners could have paid the back the entire past due balance and brought their loan current, they could have entered into a forebearance agreement or they may in looking to sell their property as a FSBO (not recommended) or it may actually be listed with a broker either for full market value or as a short sale.

With that being said, the next stage would be sheriff sale (be prepared to have with you 20% of your highest bid price in cash, certified check, cashier's check, treasurer's check due immediately) or REO property which is bank owned. Keep an open mind about foreclosed properties as they are usually not in good condition and sometimes you are unable to view the home before the sheriff's sale so you are not really sure as to what you are really getting and what condition it is actually in. There are some short sales on the market which are good steals too. Don't limit yourself to foreclosures but shop around for the best steals if you are looking for a real deal. Foreclosed properties can cost you a lot in the end to renovate.

Good luck.

John Jelinski answered:

It is possible to buy a home in Point Boro for around 250k, but you should find a good buyers rep. With the way the economy is, and working with a good buyers agent who can research and hammer out a good deal, you may be suprised on just how much you can get. The home you find may need some work, which can work in your advantage in price negotiations, so be prepared for that aspect.
If I can help you, or advise you in any way further, just call or email.
