How a Ludite on the Web Survives: He Cheats Off a Nerd in Salem Oregon! - 03/17/10 11:18 PM
My wife is a Victorian era buff. She doesn't use e-mail or voice mail. She did go to our friend and local printer, Dennis McGinnis of Red Bank, for a bunch of frilly, lavender calling cards years ago. It's not unusual for Liz to drive by a friend's house and slip one of her relics in a mailbox or the crease of a storm door with a note. "I dropped by to say hello. Call me when you can." Her response rate with this Neanderthal means of communication? 100%. Compared to me, a local real estate agent, who can flood his (17 comments)
"Cheap" Monmouth County, New Jersey Homes for Sale: Prepare to Get Jumped! - 03/16/10 01:57 AM
If you're a home buyer and you're looking in cheap areas of Monmouth County New Jersey real estate, be prepared to get jumped. Waylaid. Blackjacked. Bushwhacked. Red-balled. Whose going to ambush you? You might guess Realtors, banks, mortgage brokers, lawyers, title companies, inspectors -- who all do enjoy whipping a police baton to the back of a balky knee -- but, no. Joking, joking, joking. Seriously, it's not "us" this time. It's your brethern buyer. Yup, the guy that looks like you, smells like you, could be you. The Slim Fadey. Consider that the average sales price of a Monmouth County (6 comments)
Old Bridge New Jersey Real Estate Market Report - 03/11/10 02:01 PM
"Solid sales numbers, slipping home prices" is how I would describe the Old Bridge New Jersey 08857 real estate for sale market, based upon the first weeks of 2010. From the 1st of 2010 to today, forty three (43) Old Bridge home sales closed. The average three bedroom Old Bridge NJ house closed for $325,000 off an average list price of $341,000.

Currently there are fifty two Old Bridge homes "under contract" with buyers and sellers and attorneys working the transaction toward a successful closing. I've been busy (0 comments)

Investing in Freehold Township New Jersey Condominiums for the Do-It-Yourself Landlord or Investor Using Poet's Corner - 03/07/10 11:19 PM
Don't let the Recession and mortgage market tumult fool you. Those old-time, cash-buying investors lurk in every real estate market, especially Freehold Township, New Jersey condominiums. Today's blog is written for the do-it-yourself landlord and investor. A guy with a beat-up van or his cousin's Ford F150 who can do the work and property management himself (or herself). Let's consider Poet's Corner (built in 1986) of Freehold Township New Jersey condos for sale located on Route 537 and Koslowski Road as our sample investment and run through the numbers. The last few months of closed rental activity illustrate a two or three (0 comments)
What's the Hottest Price Range for Colts Neck New Jersey Homes For Sale? - 03/07/10 03:34 PM
What's the hottest price range for Colts Neck New Jersey homes for sale the last three months (12/7/2009 to 3/7/2010)? Actually there are two. Colts Neck NJ homes for sale that have gone 'Under Contract' between $500,000 and $750,000 and $750,000 to $1,000,000. UNDER CONTRACT is defined as price and terms negotiated, inspection issues resolved with the conculsion of attorney review. Under Contract is often abbreviated with "UC." The New Jersey Real Estate Commission (NJREC) frowns upon the status "Pending" because, rightfully, the term confuses the general public. A four bedroom Darby Colonial in The Grande is under contract off $499,000 (2 comments)

A notice, courtesy of Weichert, Realtors, that bullets the benefits of home ownership for first time homebuyers of Holmdel, New Jersey real estate. Just in case you awoke from a thirty year coma.
