Why Hasn’t My House Sold?

To sell your house for top dollar, in the least amount of time, with the least amount of hassels, it needs to have its best foot forward.

In order to sell you need to be in the market, not just on the market.

Price + Condition = Value

Seller Says…

For exercise, we also bike along a town walking trail just across Maple Ave. It’s paved with crushed gravel, and is a couple miles long through a stretch of woods. We frequently ride our bikes along that trail which ends at a ball field and play area.

For pizza, we usually hit Little Caesars in Point Pleasant, or Vinnies pizza just on Herbertsville Rd.

For a home cooking, we’ve gone to the Cozy Kitchen on Herbertsville Road several times. Our favorite place is the Allenwood General Store on Allenwood Ave in Wall. It’s only about 8-10 minutes away, but filled with antiques so Dad and the kids can have special one-on-one time together with a very low price tag.

For evening walks, we like to go to the beach in Bayhead. In the evening, there are rarely people there and we can bring our dog and throw a football or fly a kite. We also like going to the Brick Reservoir which is 5 minutes up the road.

We’re only a few minutes from Brick Hospital and in the general area we’ve had our dentist, doctors, even our vet.

We love the screened in porch. It faces the lake and we have spent countless nights out there having dinner, entertaining family and friends, and just grabbing a few moments to unwind. Not only did it draw us to the property, but it’s such a part of our life that we’ll miss it.

We also love the full sized attic. We put flooring and lighting in most of the attic so not only can it be used for storage, you can walk around up there and actually see what you’ve got.

We use the basement as living space. It’s our family room, playroom, office, library, and work area. Having this rugged space allows all six of us to live here pretty comfortably.

We also love our shed. It’s only a couple years old and is in fantastic shape. It allows us to put away all the yard/outdoor/recreation stuff and keep the place reasonably organized. We actually have two sheds on the property so we are able to keep the gas/chemicals away from the kid’s bikes and toys.

Seller Says…

The things I love about Highlands are the close accessibility to the bay, the Ocean, and beach, bike trail along the water to Atlantic Highlands, the many delicious waterfront restaurants, biking and hiking at Hartshorne woods.

Our neighborhood is great for walking/biking to restaurants, farmers markets, festivals & the high-speed ferry (35min) ride to Manhattan. We love the gorgeous views on the hills & waterside of the beach/ocean, trees & NYC.

Whole foods & downtown Red Bank is just a quick ride away & have great shopping & nightlife.

We love to eat waterfront at WindAnSea & the Inlet cafe & our favorite breakfast spot is Turning point in Long Branch.

When we bought the property we were drawn to the square footage, garage, deck & fireplace. We loved the location as we could walk 2 minutes & be at the marina & drive 5 minutes to windsurf on Sandy Hook.

If I were a buyer I would want to know the town is very safe.

The highlands area is great for families & single people alike. There are tons of restaurants, activities , shopping & recreational opportunities for all to enjoy.

I hate to leave because we enjoy barbecues on the back deck, enjoying the romantic cozy fires in the fireplace & entertaining our guests in our cozy seaside beach home.
Our utilities costs are reasonable.
