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)
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)

Computer Choices - too many? - 07/20/10 11:40 AM
What computer choices have you made? Do you use the operating system that came with your computer? Mac, Windows (give me the version e.g. vista, XP, etc.) to Linux? Did you even know about Linux? It too has various versions and can be loaded from your hard drive or CD drive. How about the internet web browsers? Which one do you use? The new Chrome from google, or, the one that came with the computer; like Safari and Windows? How about Firefox or one of the other lesser known web browsers? Do you have a free email account? Do you use (2 comments)
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)
OMG! It really did CLOSE. Part II of Is it Mortgage Fraud? - 07/18/10 11:30 AM
A few weeks back I wrote about a single woman attempting to buy a house that did not fit her budget in my blog, Is it Mortgage Fraud?. She had been out with an agent in my office and was found by the mortgage representative NOT to be loan worthy. Seems her debt to income ratio was off and the credit report had some damaging information about her bill paying habits. She was given advice on how to correct her credit score by the mortgage representative and the agent found her a home to rent while she began the repair process. (3 comments)
Home Sales in Little Egg Harbor & Tuckerton. Is it a Fluke or a Spike in home Sales? - 07/10/10 05:45 PM
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)
Want More Money For Your House? Lower Your Price. - 07/06/10 09:00 AM
This is what NO Homeowner wants to hear - But, if you want to sell in this market - ya gotta do what you gotta do. Too much inventory to play around - you have got to make the buyer think he is getting a bargain as much as the seller feels he is giving it away.

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)
News Flash: The NAR did not invent the Internet - 07/01/10 02:07 PM
News Flash: The NAR did not invent the Internet. And the local board of REALTORS did not write a computer program that provides you with the search capabilities you have come to take for granted. No, those wonderful tools are the product of government involvement and funding along with some very smart private sector entrepreneurs. I don't remember, or, care to look up the dates, but, I remember having a web site up and running before there ever was a REALTOR dot com. It was with a company in California that I found on the Grand Daddy of Search Engines "Yahoo!". (5 comments)
