You've probably seen lots of financial arguments about why you should invest in Bradley Beach NJ real estate and own your own home rather than rent. This includes budgeting (no rent increases) and the tax savings you'll most likely have. Now we're going to give you some reasons you probably haven't heard. 1. Freedom to pursue other goals in life once the major goal of home ownership is achieved.Strange as it sounds, many of our first-time buyers have told us that once they bought the house, other things in their life started to fall into place. It's as if not owning took so much of their mental energy that other goals were not worked on until that big goal was reached. So buy a home and get on with your life! 2. A greater sense of belonging to the community.Once you own a home, you feel...

In the current Bradley Beach NJ real estate market, there has been a lot of buzz around "short sales."  What is a short sale, exactly?  A short sale is when a lender agrees to accept a mortgage payoff amount less than what is owed in order to facilitate a sale of a property by a financially distressed owner - in essence, the lender forgives the outstanding balance of the loan. There are pro's and con's to short sales on both sides of the deal.  For the seller, credit history is seriously damaged, but not as badly as it would be by foreclosure.  Sellers also walk away with no profit, which makes it difficult to purchase another home.  For the buyer, the property comes at a reduced price, but it also generally comes with its fair share of problems, and there is a considerable amount of "r...

If you are currently looking to buy Bradley Beach NJ real estate, you probably have a good idea of the general range you can expect to spend on a home.  So you might be surprised when a great-looking home shows up on the MLS with what seems like a shockingly low price tag attached.  The extra-low price seems too good to be true and - most of the time - it is.    In many cases, the price you are seeing does not represent the actual asking price of the property.  Rather, it is likely a property that is in "pre-foreclosure" and the amount listed actually represents the balance of the defaulted loan, or the amount the current owner is in arrears.  Below is an excerpt from an article I found at Inman News that does a great job explaining how these properties end up on MLS search engines, and...

You may have heard buzz around the term "universal design" in recent years, but do you know what it is or how it affects the Bradley Beach NJ real estate and construction markets? According to Lowes.com, universal design is the creation of products and environments meant to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialization. The intent is to simplify life for everyone by making products, communications and the built environment more usable by as many people as possible at little or no extra cost. Universal Design benefits people of all ages and abilities. Think this is some "far out" theory just now working its way into the "modern" world?  Think again:  if you've ever walked through an automatic door, you've experienced a version...

Bradley Beach is located between Avon and the Ocean Grove section of Neptune. Bradley Beach offers ocean lovers an affordable entree into coastal living. The oceanfront at Bradley is expansive and the boardwalk refurbished. A safe haven for Dad to take a leisurely jog, the kids can hop on their bikes. Mom can sip a relaxing glass of herbal tea in a comfortable chair, overlooking the ocean. The atmosphere is relaxed. Enjoy a cool drink at the snack bar. The fountain on the Bradley Beach boardwalk has been restored. If you look closely you can see the town's "birth year" of 1893. Along with Asbury Park and Long Branch, Bradley Beach was a frequent destination for New Yorkers eager for a respite from city life. They came by train, bus and boat to frolic and cool off in the ocean surf.A tre...
