I grew up in Toms River. I ran away from Toms River.

I've been back in Toms River for 15 years now. Why?

I believe it's the best to live that I have ever been to!

I even created a blog about it (link below).

Don't just get to know about us, get to know us.

Hey Kathy,

It is a great area if you have a boat or if you want to take advantage of the beach club there. It really depends on your price range though as my team just put a deal together for a 2 bedroom home in mint condition for under 160k or another waterfront home which was a short sale that we closed for 305k.

Also there are many adult communities in the area where you can get more interior and exterior space with less taxes and with an association fee that maintains the exterior of your property and supports the clubhouse.

It all really depends again on what your needs and price range is. Baywood is another lagoon area on the other side of drum point road, then you have the cherry quay area. Further south Toms River offers even more waterfront communities and there are plenty homes on the market. If you have any further questions just let us know. Our office is located conveniently a few miles from Shore Acres on Drum Point Road in Brick. Best of luck with your home search.

The lot like every other property is worth less than it was a few years ago. Make an offer based on today's value. If the seller seems motivated to sell you could get a very good deal. good luck to you.

It is VERY risky to be an off-site landlord. New Jersey law drastically favors tenants and treats landlords like dirt. If you get a bad tenant, it will take you months and months and months to evict them if they choose not to leave.

Also if repairs need to be done and you are far away, you will be at the mercy of contractors who will have to coordinate those repairs with tenants who may or may not be available to stay home for the repairs. If they lose a day of work, it will come off the rent, in addition to the cost of the repair. And there WILL be repairs, even in a condo.

Furthermore, prices have not bottomed. So there is market risk as well.

I wouldn't do it.

My broker is not specifically REO, but there are many REO listings in the Ocean County MLS. I work with several people looking to purchase REO/bank owned properties. If you would like me to set you up a profile for when these come on the market, email me at I can also set up your profile to alert you when estate homes come on the market for sale, which can also be a good investment opportunity ... more

Gregory Bain answered:
There is much more involved than just marking off a 25X75 section of land. How would the loss of the land effect the value of your neighbors property? How much would it devalue his parcell to cut it off and give it to you? A fair price to whom? ... more
