little egg harbor: This is the "NORMAL" Housing Market - 06/16/11 05:10 PM
Yeah, that's right. This is the "NORMAL" Housing Market that you have been waiting on to return. I know this because the appraisal says it. Well, OK. Maybe it doesn't say that exactly but if you read the report you would think it is a pretty good market to sell a house. I remember talking to the appraiser before he went out to the townhouse and I asked how I could help with comps and what our current market was like. He seemed so nice on the telephone.
Yes, he says prices are still declining. But, the inventory is stable (?) … (24 comments)

little egg harbor: August 2003 - The Hottest Month in REAL ESTATE for 08087 - 05/10/11 04:22 PM
 
August 2003. I was reminded of the hottest month in real estate just the other day. Someone was telling me how the housing market has improved and we were heading back to the good old days. Really? I’m struggling to make ends meet. So, I asked for some clarification and was told how busy her husband, a title clerk, is now a day. She doesn’t mention that the “husband” works four days a week because the company cut back his hours. She doesn’t mention that almost half the work force in the company was let go almost two years ago. … (4 comments)

little egg harbor: It was just lighting - Real Estate still suxs - 11/15/10 08:09 PM
The other month I got a little excited about the sales results for September. I was not sure how exactly to interpret the raw data. Looking for a silver lining I indicated that indeed we may very well have hit bottom and on our way to a rebound. I was wrong. It was just a strike of lighting - real estate still suxs.

Compare the numbers above to the same period last year and see if you agree with the Press of Atlantic City, which claims the price of homes is on the raise. Remember, numbers don't lie, but liars use numbers.

little egg harbor: Is it a Silver Lining or just plain old lighting ? - 10/17/10 12:59 PM
The marketing report for September 2010 in zip code 08087, that's Tuckerton and Little Egg Harbor (Jersey Shore). Begs the question, "Is it a silver lining or just plain old lighting?" I have been looking for good news in the real estate market to report to all those home owners looking to selling their house here at the Jersey Shore. The market has followed not just the economy but the weather, too.
Blanked with snow this past winter it was hard to get buyers to come out and look. When they did they could not get in the front door because … (3 comments)

little egg harbor: Christmas in September? Now is a Great Time to buy Real Estate - 10/16/10 09:54 PM
Can’t we just get past Halloween before we start advertising Christmas? That’s all I ask. I have had these pictures in my cell phone since September 22, 2010. Christmas displays at Home Depot and K-Mart. Go ahead, after October 31 and put up those all the Christmas displays you want. But, let’s get the pumpkins, ghosts and goblins out of the way first?
I feel for the retailers. It is a tough market. I know this because I sell homes. Remember when our National Association of Realtors came out with the “great time to buy” marketing program? Most of America seems … (9 comments)

little egg harbor: The Money You "Lost" in Your Price Reduction Wasn't Real - 09/11/10 08:49 AM
J. Phillip wrote an awesome piece on your over priced listing that I didn't know how to tell you. If you want the home sold - reduce the price. I have done all I can to get people to come and look at it.
The offers I have gotten you are the best I will be able to do. If you want it SOLD - REDUCE THE PRICE.

little egg harbor: So, How's it going with YOU? - 09/01/10 04:22 PM
Ahh! A new month has begun. HAPPY SEPTEMBER! How was your August? If a picture is worth a 1000 words then take a look at this picture.

At the top is number of pending sales, SOLDS, Days on Market, and the Median Sales Price of Homes that SOLD in August 2009. One of the worst years in real estate when you look back over ten years of data.
Now fast forward to the numbers at the bottom of the picture. That is the close of last month. That is the big picture for me. Less than half the number of sales for … (14 comments)

little egg harbor: Sellers that choose to “chase the market” are likely to waste time and lose money. - 08/31/10 01:54 PM
Richard makes many good points to homeowners about the current market. Don't Chase IT! Price your house less than the one that sold down the street and you will have buyers making you multiple offers. Price sells and the home better be in move in condition. Ask yourself this, "Would I buy this house?" If the answer is not YES - lower the price and fix it up.

 
Sellers all share the same notion as to the value of their house. When I ask what they would like net from the sale of their property, they always answer: “as … (1 comments)

little egg harbor: Why Your Westchester NY Home Expired Unsold - 08/30/10 09:21 PM
Phillip - wrote an excellent article about having your home ready to sell. That means the home has got to be ready to move in and priced for the bargain hunters to come out with their wallets just to take a look. The offer will come only if the buyer feels that your home is the best available property in his price range. If a real estate agent gives you a high and low number to begin your marketing - pick the low and and offer to take another 10 off. Just change Weschester to Little Egg Harbor and Tuckerton, NJ.

little egg harbor: What's a kid to do? - 07/26/10 11:46 PM
O.K., I'm not a kid. But, I was once and I lived in the same town where I live today. From grade 7 through High School Graduation I was able to enjoy growing up on the Jersey Shore. Summers were great! Winters were like being in a ghost town without a ride out. To me it was Purgatory living in Mystic Island section of Little Egg Harbor and I promised myself that I would never have my children stuck in a town that did not offer them things to do - all year long.
So when I moved back here and … (16 comments)

little egg harbor: Teaching the wrong lessons in LIFE - 07/23/10 10:47 PM
Why are parents Teaching their children all the wrong lessons in Life?
Alright, this is a rant. A vent, if you will. I just got back from my favorite pizza parlor with a take-out pizza. I love this place. It offers good food at reasonable prices and best of all it is near my house. I could walk there if I didn't want to carry a pizza home on foot. The owner of the place employs several local youth and always supports the community with donations to this or that event.
If the kids at school are putting on a play, … (11 comments)

little egg harbor: Property Tax Appeal - Victory or Defeat? - 07/18/10 06:44 PM
I ask you, did I have Property Tax Appeal - Victory or Defeat? I just got my "adjusted" tax assessment from the Ocean County Board of Taxation and I am not sure how I feel about it. I had written a blog about doing your own tax appeal titled, "How to Reduce your Little Egg Harbor, Ocean County, NJ Property Taxes", and it has not been as easy for me as I may have indicated in the blog posting.  The local tax administrator from Little Egg Harbor fought me all the way. Back several years ago when they hired the outside … (4 comments)

Home Sales in Little Egg Harbor & Tuckerton. Is it a Fluke or a Spike in home Sales?
June sales are up. Up big! We had 10 more sales in June of 2010 than we did in June 2009 in the Tuckerton and Little Egg Harbor. That comes after three months of dismal sales figures for zip code 08087. But, it is also on the heel of the end to the government tax credit stimulus program. The dead line to have a house under contract to get the tax credit was April 30th and it must be closed by June 30th. … (0 comments)

little egg harbor: Tuckerton celebrates the 4th of July - 07/02/10 11:28 AM
I love my community. This Saturday, July 3d, 2010, Tuckerton is going to celebrate the independence of America. No where is "grand old flag" sung with more passion than here in my town. My town is Little Egg Harbor and it surrounds the Borough of Tuckerton by land. We host Memorial Day and Veterans Day with parades down Radio Road and Twin Lakes Blvd in the Mystic Island section of our community. We have representatives of Bass River (New Gretna) to the south and Eagleswood (West Creek) to the north.
Those are the towns that share the school services of Pinelands Regional … (0 comments)

little egg harbor: Is it Mortgage Fraud? - 06/19/10 12:13 PM
Is it mortgage fraud to declare income and fail to disclose expenses? I am just wondering. Did the applicant deliberately try to mislead the real estate agent, the mortgage representative, the home seller, and herself?
Here is a single woman trying to buy into the American Dream. Well, the part of the dream that includes owning a home. She declared to the other agent that she wanted to get in on the tax credit before it expired and the agent she had been working with is not responsive to her. Like a flash of lighting the agent has her out looking … (74 comments)

little egg harbor: Home sales fall in Little Egg Harbor and Tuckerton back to last year - 06/01/10 10:01 PM
We are back to last year figures for selling Homes in Little Egg Harbor and Tuckerton. The worst is no longer behind us but once again, right in our face. The worst year in recent history for selling a home in the 08087 zip code was 2009 with things turning around last August. But the numbers for March, April and now May are almost exactly the same as the previous year, and that is not good.
With the tax credit for home buyers gone at the end of April, you would expect to see a rise in sales for all three months as buyers … (5 comments)

little egg harbor: Home Sale Marketing Report for Little Egg Harbor and Tuckerton 08087 - 05/02/10 05:56 PM
Home Sale Marketing Report for Little Egg Harbor and Tuckerton 08087 for April 2010 continues to provide a lackluster picture for home owners. Days on the market and the number of sales on a month to month comparison from last year show little change except for the median price of homes sold, which has taken a nose dive this month once again.
 
I would like to say that home sales are on the rise because of the lower sales price but at this time the number of homes sold in 08087 zip code is now flat. It may even be … (0 comments)
