Reflecting on NAR's "The Code of Ethics" ... from Ocean City, New Jersey Most of the participating real estate agents are familiar with "The Code of Ethics" as there is a required course every four years for all agents ... but very few of the buyers and sellers that these agents work with know anything about this "Code."  Clearly, a good agent should share the "Code" with those people that they form a relationship with in a real estate transaction. I continue to participate in the Professional Standards Committe so I picked up my new 2014 copy of the "Code" and all the changes that were made for this year.  All of this is included in the "Code of Ethics and Arbitration Manual" which is given to each of our participants on these committees. I find the history of the "Code" and all the de...

Dear Mr and Mrs. Listing Agent, STOP MAKING MY BUYERS PUT IN LOW-BALL OFFERS!!! How is it your fault you ask? Well let's see, all of my clients get my newsletter every month that shows what has sold in my market because I want them to be informed and educated when ready to put in an offer. And guess what? They just saw the property that you had listed for $4,950,000 just sold for $3,000,000. And they also saw that the property you had listed for $725,000 sold for $410,000. So of course when they are out with me and see a property listed for $500,000 they now think a starting offer of $250,000 isn't unreasonable based on what has sold. So please do me a favor; either educate yourself and stop taking overpriced listings only to sell them in house at a deep discount (not to mention doing y...

It is that time of year again, thankfully, when you need to pick up your Cape May beach tags for the summer 2011 season.  Every year there is a new design on the tag and because of this, it has grown into quite a collectible.  I have been in homes for sale where they have displayed over 15 years worth of beach tags.  It is moveable art once the season has come to an end. This year the Cape May beach tag prices are: A daily beach tag is $5.00. A 3 day beach tag is $10.00. A Saturday to Saturday (weekly) beach tag is $13.00. A seasonal beach tag is $15.00 if you purchase it before the end of this month (March 31, 2011). If you purchase your seasonal beach tag after April 1st, it is $25.00. Beach tags are to be used on the Cape May beaches from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  They need to be w...

I work in a seaside resort, actually the Nation's Oldest Seaside Resort: Cape May, NJ. A lot of my buyers and sellers are involved in Condo Complexes. There are two main reasons some people here prefer condos: 1) It is a little more affordable and hassle free to own a condo as a second home or vacation property as opposed to a single family, 2) The way Cape May is situated, unless you want to spend $2 Million or more on a Big Beach Front home, the only other Beach Front option is a condo. That being said, most complexes have average turnover and even though some value has been lost since the height of the market in 2006, they are still selling........except one. I represent sellers in the Sandpiper Beach Club. This complex was completely renovated in 2006 and is one of the best run comp...

I can't tell you how many times I have heard this over and over, and over and over. "Ok, I'll list but I think 6% commission is too much for you to make?" But why should I expect my seller to understand that I don't get all of that money if I don't educate them? Have any of you watched any of the Real Estate shows on HGTV, or other cable networks lately? What is the first thing that flashes on the screen after the show the Listing Price.....The commission the agent gets! But we all know that if an agent sells a $500,000 listing they don't get $30,000. We all understand that that number gets divided, sometimes several times before the agent takes home check. So let's see what that $60,000 commission actually turns into for an agent: First, most sales are completed by two separate coopera...

Buying a Summer Home in Cape May NJ- I get asked all the time..How do I start the process of Buying a Summer Home in Cape May? When is the best time to start to look at Buying a Summer Home in Cape May? Can I afford to Buy a Summer Home in Cape May? The answer to all of these questions, ironically enough, is never the same. One client may be buying a summer home to use for themselves and aren't worried about rental income and carrying costs. In that case the right time to buy is whenever you find the right home! Some of my clients are planning to use the proeprty as a rental home. In that case, when buying a summer home, the best time to close is as close to the beginning of the summer season as possible. If you buy a house in May and rentals start in June, you get all the deposits alre...

Some say Cape May, NJ is a haunted hot spot.  The town was established in the mid 1600's by Captain Cornelius Jacobsen Mey.  The spelling was later changed from Mey to May and thus became the first seaside resort known as Cape May, in 1761.The town has a shaded history full of detailed exploits of pirating, fires, and floods that have forever turned this town into what it is today... a haunt.  So, it is no wonder that there are a few extra "people" here that cannot actually be counted in our census.Through conversations that I have had with some of my friends, I have learned that there is some sort of beacon that draws those that are lost at sea to our beaches.  The Cape May diamond perhaps?  Regardless of what it is, as you near the end of Beach Avenue, there is a bar and restaurant kn...
