A recent blog by the The Murphy-Lee Team located in Forked River and Manahawkin stated that super-storm Sandy rendered no appreciative price changes in the homes for sale at the Jersey Shore.
My take on's too early to tell.
I would and did tell my investors to jump now, fix the home (if necessary) and rent.  Rental are in high demand.
But there's a drop in Jersey Shore homes available for sale.  Just in Barnegat, Manahawkin, Little Egg Harbor and Tuckerton homes for sale dropped by 107 from October 28th, they … (5 comments)

barnegat: New Construction Homes in Barnegat – Why a Home Inspection? - 10/17/12 09:31 PM
New Construction Homes in Barnegat – Why a Home Inspection?
You might think a home inspection on a newly built home is a waste of money.  As a Jersey Shore REALTOR®, I disagree.

The Affair or Battle of Cedar Bridge 2009, 227 Years Later
The 2009 reenactment of the Battle of Cedar Bridge in Barnegat took place on December 27th, 227 years after it was originally fought.  The weather was warm and sunny, I wonder how much different the scene at the Old Cedar Bridge Tavern really was.

The original Cedar Bridge Tavern in 1782 had no porch, and the two windows to the left were part of an addition in the 1800's.

The Burlington Militia stops for refreshment at the Cedar Bridge Tavern, after a fruitless search of Manahawkin for John Bacon and other … (8 comments)
