Hi Nitan. My close friend and attorney in Philly is handling several properties in Wildwood. My buddy gets $1500/week on average, sometimes more, sometimes less. If I had to give you high/low numbers, it would be $1000-2000/week.

If I had to compare them side by side, I'd say that Ocean City is a wealthier crowd, more upscale, more families, smaller boardwalk and VERY short beach (from the boardwalk to ocean).

Wildwood is a younger crowd, some families, less upscale, larger boardwalk, more attractions for kids, more piers, and BIG beach, from the boardwalk to the ocean.

I visited last year and was shocked at how poorly the houses were constructed. When we got to the second floor and walked around, everything moved....the floors, the walls, were not sturdy, way below par, in my opinion.

Hello Peggy:

It depends on your needs and affordability. Will you be living alone or have family with you? Keep in mind your price range and also remember that most condos have association fees. So you need to decide what would be the best fit for you.

If you need any other help, feel free to contact me anytime!

Good Luck to you!

I am sure someone will give a good answer here, however my question is, how many bedrooms are there without this "bedroom"? If there are 3-4 bedrooms and this one is an extra, and you can make some use of it, be more concerned about the square footage of the house than the number of bedrooms. That is what an appraiser takes into account. The only time an appraiser will deduct for bedroom count is if it is a house, not a condo or co-op, with 2 bedrooms, because it is considered a lot less desirable. Bathroom count does make a difference, but not the number of bedrooms.
That aside, the amount I have heard is 80 sq feet, with a closet.

North Cape May is a clean, safe area. The prices in that area range depending on what your looking for but there are a number of older homes in good condition that are less expensive. In general you could purchase an older but well maintaned home in the $200,000 to $250,000 range.

Let me know if you would like me to send you a search of some properties currently on the market. If you haave any other questions just let me know.

Joanna Martin answered:
Your best bet is to check out, it is our local paper and has a great classified section. Be sure to check often, as a lot of owners/landlords will start to rent for the summer season if they don't get a year-round tenant. The pickings are slim the closer you get to the summer. Also, local realtors don't really handle many year-round rentals. ... more

Gregory Bain answered:
There is no one place to get all the information you need. You need to get with the borough and make sure the place is legal to rent ( ) and then you will want to find an agent that will represent you in your absence. You know: for scheduled turn overs, advertising, deposit holds and releases, clean outs, collecting rents with properly worded lease agreements that a judge will accept in court. All little things - did you have an ROI done on the property? Make sure it has a reasonable number to repair and replace furniture. Property taxes, association and management fees, utilities and beach badges are a few items to consider when looking at physical structure repairs that always need updating.

Hoping all your expectations are met. Good Luck.

Hi Mary,

Are you interested in the assessment rates or a specific property? Or when they did the borough assessment?

Hello Jenstina!

Well you'll probably get an array of answers here, and since there are so many of us that are in fact Realtors, I'll step off the deep end and answer first.

Whether you can rent on your own, i.e., interview the applicants, run credit checks, complete lease forms, furnish any required disclosures, be available 24/7 for maintenance issues, etc., etc., relaly depends on your temperament and personality. An experienced, professional Realtor that specializes in property management can be worth a ton of gold! But if you're of the mndset to go it alone, then by all means, go for it!

Yearly rental is a possibility but do you know you could do much better renting just the summer months? Especially understanding you have no tenancy created.

You did not reference the property you have posted about. Repost with that information and I'm sure a local agent will be able to help you.

Jeanne Feenick answered:
Hi Joanne, that information is easily accessible to a Realtor via the local Multiple Listing Service. My suggestion is to initiate a dialgoue with a local agent and use this opportunity to develop a rapport and gauge their responsiveness and market knowledge.

One tip, in viewing sold data, consider the timing of a sale based on the date it went under contract. That is the date that the price is set and so it is truest reflection of the timeframe that that value was set in the market.

Best of luck to you!

Jeremy S. Hill answered:

From a professional standpoint a licensed real estate agent cannot give advice on crime in particular areas for this can be considered steering. I know what you mean for there are areas in any town which many residents would consider undesirable for various reason. What I suggest you do is speak with some local residents. Call the local police. Try some online forums so you can get real life advice from people who are familiar with your areas of interest. Schedule a visit a speak with an agent who specializes in Wildwood real estate. While not steering you a professional agent can let you know from a business standpoint where to you should best invest your money. ... more
