FHA Approved condos, Atlantic County, NJ updated for 2020

Here is a list of FHA approved condominiums in Atlantic County, NJ

Here is a list of FHA approved condominiums in Atlantic County, NJ.  Based on findings at HUD.gov. Financing for condos with an FHA loan can be challenge.  Under the revised guidelines – which took effect Oct. 15, 2019 – an individual condo unit in a building of 10 units or more may be eligible for spot approval if no more than 10% of the units are FHA-insured.  So even if a condo is not on the FHA approved list it may still be eligible for FHA financing.

If FHA financing is not an option there are other choices include USDA loan (100% financing), and some banks do offer a 3% conventional loan.  Contact us if you’re interested in financing a condo purchase.

Jim And Lori Sell Their Home Quickly For Top Dollar

Recent sale in Egg Harbor Township went under contract in 7 days $7,000 over asking price.

It’s a great time to sell a home and I want to share a story about Jim and Lori who were able to sell their Egg Harbor Township home quickly and for top dollar.  The biggest factors in selling any home are price and condition.

Jim and Lori had a home inspection done before listing their property so they didn’t have any surprises.  They fixed most of the items that came in the inspection report before listing the house to ensure a smooth sale.  They also priced the house right.  The result of this was 9 showings and under contract in 7 days.  The home sold in just 42 days and sold for $7,000 over the asking price.

If you’re interested in selling your home and want top dollar and a quick sale contact me for a free consultation.

11 Reasons Home Sellers Should List During the Holiday Season

Now is a great time to sell your home.

We are rolling toward the end of October and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  Many home seller chose to pull their homes off the market this time of year and wait until Spring to sell.  Here are 11 reasons sellers should list during the Holiday Season.

11. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the Spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money! This will allow you to sell high and buy low.

10. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year.

9. Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days around the Holidays.

8. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transfers cannot wait until Spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the Holidays to capture the market.

7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.

6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a work week.

5. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price.

4. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays.

3. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home. Less demand means more money for you.

2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you.

And the number one reason why your seller should list during the Holidays …

1. People who look for homes during the Holidays are more serious buyers!

If you’d like to know if this is the best time or not to sell for you please contact me at 609-338-3773.

5 Sensational Things To Do In South Jersey This Fall.

There's Plenty To Do And See In South Jersey This Fall.

I love summer in South Jersey.  Year round this is a great place to live and visit.  As the weather is finally starting to feel like Fall here are 5 sensational things to do in South Jersey This Fall.

Visit The Beach And Boardwalks

The beaches are beautiful this time of year and less crowded.  It’s easier to find parking and it’s often free this time of year.  Many of the boardwalks still have shops and restaurants open during the Fall on weekends.  For Ocean City visit Jilly’s Arcade open year round.

Ride A Bike

Fall is a fantastic time for bike riding.  My favorite place is the Atlantic County Bike Path. The Atlantic County Park System maintains the 7.56 mile bike and pedestrian path running between Harbor Square (formerly Shore Mall) in Egg Harbor Township and the Atlantic County Institute of Technology in Hamilton Township. This path is a safe fun way to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors.  There are also several other municipal bike paths and county and state parks that operate bike trails.

Visit A Farm

This is the garden state and Fall is a great time to visit some of the amazing farms in South Jersey.  Many farms have Fall activities and events.  Sahl’s Father Son Farms operates a family friendly corn maze in the Fall from now until October 26th in Galloway Township.  They have hay rides, pumpkin patch and more.  To meet some amazing animals visit the Funny Farm Animal Rescue in Mays Landing.

Visit The Cranberry Bogs

This is a totally unique thing to South Jersey.  If you haven’t seen it you’ll definitely want to check it out.  Check out JJ White and Pine Barren Native Fruits in Browns Mills.  This week they are starting harvest across the cranberry bogs.  Schedule a tour or visit Whitesbog to see some of the harvest. Then stop by JJ White Farm at 1 Pasadena to purchase some fresh cranberries, jellies, jams, salad dressing and salsa (awesome) directly from the farmer.

Bird Watching

This is a great time of year to watch the birds fly South for the winter.  There are some great places to drive to and see birds and wildlife up close.  The Edwin B Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Galloway Township is a fantastic spot to drive out onto the marshes.  Also Cape May Point State Park is fantastic this time of year.

What do you like to do in South Jersey in the Fall.  Comment and let us know your thoughts.

Brigantine NJ Beach Homes

5 Reasons To Love Brigantine NJ

Brigantine NJ is not the most well knows shore town in NJ.  That’s part of the charm of Brigantine.  Here are 5 Reasons to love Brigantine NJ.

Number 1: The Beaches

Brigantine Beaches are beautiful, not packed, and easy to get in and out of.  Brigantine also has one of the few beaches in NJ that allow 4 x 4 access to sections of the beach.  Personally I spent a lot of time there one summer playing beach volleyball with the Brigantine Beach Volleyball Association.

Number 2:  Location

Brigantine is located just North of Atlantic City.  It’s easy to access Brigantine from Route 30 and the Atlantic City Expressway and garden state parkway.  Once in Brigantine there it is a peaceful and fun retreat.

Number 3:  Boating

Brigantine offers many amenities for boating lovers.  Many of the homes are on the bay or cove that allows boat slips.  This gives you easy access to the bay and ocean.  Enjoy fishing, crabbing or relaxing on the water.  Jet skiing is also popular in Brigantine.  Or enjoy kayaking or paddle boarding.

Number 4:  Affordability

Brigantine home prices are typically lower than some of the other shore towns.  You can purchase a 3 bedroom 2 bath home in the $300,000 price range.  Waterfront homes start in the $400,000 range.

Number 5:  Golf

The Links at Brigantine Beach is a fantastic 18 hole golf course open year round.  Enjoy ocean breezes on this Scottish Links style golf course.

Brigantine Beach has much to offer for a year round residence, vacation home or investment.  We have an office located in Brigantine to help with any real estate needs there.  Contact us and we’d be glad to help.  Call 609-484-0890 ext. 132.
