The Perfect Storm

Real Estate Agent with John C. Conover Agency

It's been a long time coming, but we're finally beginning to see some positive changes in the Asbury Park, NJ real estate market.  In the last two weeks, I've seen a significant increase in the number of hits to my web-site, phone calls, appointments and finally - deals.

I try not to worry to much about why things happen - but this time I can't help myself.   And as with most things in life - it seems quite simple!   We are approaching the end of the buying season for condos and homes in this resort community, and sellers are beginning to realize that if they don't lower their asking price - they are most likely going to hold on to their property for another 6 - 8 months.

And just as importantly is the Federal Stimulius package First Time Home Buyers tax credit - and the fact that it's set to expire soon.  And that's a big chunck.  $8,000 would make us all happy.  But it seems to be working especially well for first time home buyers.

And with all the exciting redevelopment, growth and positive press about Asbury Park, NJ - many are wanting to get in on the ground floor and start the wonderful life of living by the beach.  New Jersey's top rated beach btw!  :-)

Be sure to check out the photos and the YouTube videos of Asbury Park on my website:   You may be quite surprised.   It's not the Asbury Park it use to be.  It's much, much, much better!

It is great to have business and yes I think a lot of it has to do with the FTHB tax credit. Anyone looking to buy needs to get out there and start the process soon.
