THE WORST IS OVER Knock on wood, the worst weather that winter has to offer has already been served up. The daylight hours are longer now and the smell of spring is in the air. Even a few daffodils are popping up. Winter did get off to a horrendous start here in Cape May County. The average tempe...
Our 10th Anniversary January 30th, 2011 Looking back at our beginnings on January 29, 2001, it seems like such a long time ago.  We opened our Wildwood Crest real estate office that day.  We didn't know what to expect.  We had no idea if our "Modern Technology, Old-Fashioned Service" philosophy w...
Optimism on the Horizon, Part II Back on December 18, 2010, about 4 1/2 weeks ago, we wrote on this blogsite about our optimistic outlook on the local vacation home real estate market here at the shore in Cape May County, New Jersey.  We talked about expanding our business, but purposely left you...
$201,343,605 Catchy title, huh?  So what does $201,343,605 mean?  Unfortunately, it's not how much money we won in the MegaMillions or Powerball lotteries.  It's not our national debt, it's not New Jersey's budget deficit. It is the total value of all properties sold in the Wildwoods in 2010 by r...
  Temperance Still Alive Ocean City, a seashore town located at the north end of Cape May County, New Jersey, was founded in 1879 by four Methodist ministers.  The town is a popular resort, with plenty of beaches, a Boardwalk, amusement rides, restaurants, retail stores, etc, even the Ocean City ...
Daydreaming January 19th, 2011 The human mind is a funny thing.  You can play tricks on it, even though your mind knows you're playing a trick.  More simply put, you can divert your mind to thoughts of pleasant things to help blot out the unpleasant and your mind will go along with the deception....
A COLD START Forget about autumn.  Winter got off to a roaring start in early December, completely ignoring the fact that winter was still a couple weeks away.  Temperatures through Christmas day were averaging six degrees below normal for December in Cape May County.  But there is some good news...
Finding the Price Point January 18th, 2011 Shows what I know.  If you told me back in 2005 that we'd ever be selling properties in the $100,000's again I would have laughed in your face.  After all, real estate prices in Cape May County, New Jersey had escalated at 3% per month for a year and a h...
On MLK Day, Let's End Violence January 16th, 2011 It's Martin Luther King Day.  Last year, I wrote a blog on this website titled, "I Have a Dream".  You can scroll back to January 17, 2010 to read it. This year, rather than racial equality, I want to address violence.  They go hand in hand at tim...
The Vacation Home Real Estate Market is back! Go ahead and snicker.  This Mountain Man guy (and City Girl) is full of bull, you're thinking.  Not so fast, my friend. Sure, the national unemployment numbers are still tough to swallow.  And yes, we are still seeing more vacant store fronts popping ...
