The borough is gearing up to do a townwide revaluation of residential and commercial properties this year. Keyport would have to conduct the revaluation for the 2014 budget year. (a Directive from the Monmouth County Board of Taxation) The council introduced an ordinance authorizing a special emergency appropriation of $170,000 to fund the project which must be completed by October of this year. Keyport has lost in excess of $17 million in ratables over the last three years. Last year's impact on Keyport's financial condition was about $200,000 from appeals that dated from 2009-2012.

I have an extensive laundry list of reasons living in Monmouth County is wonderful, since school is out and the heat is on, lets start there. While New Jersey is well known for its beaches, or as people often refer the "jersey shore" there are a number of things you can do to beat the heat, aside from walking the boardwalk and catching some rays on the sand. Many people are aware that exit 117 on the Garden State Parkway is where your summer fun begins. All roads lead to Sandy Hook, a 7 mile stretch of beach with both ocean and bay sands. Did you know not only is this a beach,but it is also a National Park? Take the time to enjoy Fort Hancock Museum, Maritime Museum and hiking and biking trails. While on hopping off at exit 117, take some time to enjoy Runaway Rapids. This water parks is just across the street from the Keansburg Amusement Park and just a few short blocks off Highway 36. This is a great place to take the whole family! The park is not the large scale water parks we are used to, but a great alternative to take 2 or 3 hours to splash around with out losing your group in the crowd. Joint admission is also available to the Amusement Park giving you extra bang for your buck! Finally, looking for a spot without all the usual tourist trappings? Enjoy one of Monmouth County Park Systems best kept secrets. Dorbrook Recreation Area offers a Sprayground. This great playground for the smaller kids is a super fun treat! With dry and wet playgrounds and water tables and umbrellas you are sure to enjoy. These are just some of the reasons living in Momnouth County is a such a treat. While your enjoying all that we have to offer take some time to consider owning in this area. Want to know more about why Monmouth County is a great place to live?

ATTENTION BUYERS!! The time has come to get your comfortable shoes on, grab a water bottle and get the car keys, it's National Association of Realtor's Open House Weekend and in Monmouth County the balloons will be everywhere!!! Here are some handy tips that you may want to keep you from getting overwhelmed by it all. First, make it an occasion to spend some quality time with your significant other by getting a babysitter so you can see as many as possible and look forward to lunch or dinner after 4pm when most of them end. Second, have a plan! Know which areas you are most interested in based on school systems, access to work or family members, Hazlet, Middletown and Holmdel are among the most popular. Try to determine the exact style of house that you like such as a Colonial, Ranch, Split, Bi-Level or Cape. Research these different styles so you have an idea of what they look like from the street and try to resist the temptation to look at any that you know will not be your dream house so will have time to preview the right one. Establish if you definitely want a garage, this will cut down on the amount of homes you would be tempted to preview on your drive by. Bring a pen and make notes on the print outs offered by the Realtors so you will be able to refresh your memory at the end of the day. And finally, remember to have fun and get excited about the prospect of buying your next home! Joanne Schiffres, http://joannes.betterhomesus.com Better Homes Realty, Hazlet 732-757-5013

Twp. could refund $190k in 2012 tax appeals. Mike Davis of the independent Newspaper posts: Tax appeals are on the rise. At April 17th meeting the Township Commitee voted to begin the process of conducting a reassesment, which would adjust property values for the 2013 tax year . "Hazlet was ordered by the county to do revaluations when values were rapidly rising. Now that they are coming down, the numbers that were placed on the assements seem to be too high." The township refunded more than $43,000 on the 104 appeals filed with the county in 2011. But with the deadline for 2012 appeals now past, 216 appeals have been filed with a potential refund of approximately $190,000. "There is concern that it's going to become 400 appeals next year, unless the values are adjusted to reflect true market value," Gorman said. (Township Attorney James Gorman) In March, the Township Committee approved a $20 million budget that calls for an average tax increase of $65.28 for a tax payer with a home assessed at the township average of $301,490. The Hazlet Township Board of Education approved a $48 million budget for 2012-2013 with no tax increase for the second straight year.

Realtors are more than just "door openers". An experienced full time agent has established and maintained great industry relationships over the years in order to serve his or her clients when it comes to the largest purchase they will ever make. Your Realtor's sole purpose should be to make your transaction as seemless as possible. That is why they should be the first person you go to when you need an important referral such as an attorney, home inspector or most importantly, a mortgage representative. Real Estate transactions are only as good as the people involved in order to move things along in a timely fashion and open communication between those related industries are most important when difficulties arise.

Click here for more info from my colleague Sandra RostekFebruary 29, 2012 by Wendy Trager Email: email@example.com. It comes as no surprise that some of the hardest hit in this economy are seniors. Homes seniors have been living in their whole adult life may now burdensome to pay for and upkeep. Many seniors feel they have nowhere else to go. Reverse Mortgages can be the solution for a variety of problems:
Buying A Home With Past Credit Problems Buying a home can be both exciting and stressful but, for those with past credit problems, the process may also seem intimidating. The good news is that many lenders have adapted to the idea that many hopeful homeowners simply need a second chance, which means that past credit problems no longer have to define your future. Credit Blemishes When life unexpectedly takes a turn for the worst, it’s not always possible to come out without a few bumps and bruises. Every day, people are faced with late or missed credit card payments, mortgage foreclosures, bankruptcy proceedings, auto repossessions and even civil judgments that will affect their credit reports for years to come. Whether it’s from a job loss, injury or just a simple case of temporary hardship, credit blemishes are often a part of life. The good news is that they no longer have to prevent you from becoming a homeowner. Give Yourself A Little Credit After experiencing a credit problem, most lenders will want to see an attempt to rebuild your credit through a steady payment history with a new account. This can be accomplished by applying for a credit card and maintaining a responsible use of the account. If you aren’t approved for an unsecured card, you can always apply for a secured credit card. Either will rebuild your credit over time and will help to show lenders that your past credit problems are just that - in the past. Clean Up Your Credit Report Before applying for a home loan, make sure that you check your credit report from each of the three major credit reporting agencies. Every 12 months, consumers can request a free copy of their credit report from Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. If anything is incorrect or found to be inaccurate, filing a dispute with the credit reporting agency can help to get the information corrected before speaking with a lender. When you apply for a home loan, the lender will access your credit report for the purpose of determining your creditworthiness. In an effort to ensure that you have the best possible chance at being approved for the loan at the best possible interest rates, making sure that your credit report is accurate is a must. Save Up For A Down Payment Some homebuyers often qualify for a mortgage with down payments as low as five percent (three and one half percent for FHA loans), but those with past credit problems may be required to shell out up to 35 percent or more for a down payment on their new home. A buyer who pays a larger down payment obviously has more vested interest in the home and may, thereby, be less likely to default on a loan. If you have past credit problems, check with your lender about specific down payment requirements and start saving! Creative Financing Options If you’ve exhausted all of your conventional efforts and are still turning up empty, don’t give up just yet. Alternative financing is an option that many homebuyers use to purchase a home. Your REALTOR® can provide you with details regarding any lease purchase and/or owner financing properties, which may require no credit check, no bank qualifying, a low down payment and competitive interest rate options.
