CLERMONT — In concert with the New Jersey Association of REALTORS’ “Get the REAL Story” public education campaign, the Cape May County Association of REALTORS in a June 26 release, urged consumers to read beyond the headlines and investigate the real opportunities that exist in Cape May County market. The association’s officials said there are opportunities in every market. They added that low interest rates, a large selection of homes, and increased FHA loans limits are working in favor of first-time buyers, renters, and trade-up buyers.
“National media reports don’t necessarily reflect the same real estate trends as in our local area,” said Ian Lazarus, CMCAR president. In the end, all real estate is local.
According to the release, the local market in Cape May County continues to offer consumers real estate opportunities, including some of the best second homes and investment properties along the coast and mainland communities.
Lazarus said that the best way for a consumer to get the most accurate view of the local real estate market is to consult with a REALTOR.
“It can be hard for consumers to make a decision about their real estate options with everyone offering them a different opinion,” added Lazarus. “Knowing all the facts about local real estate trends is crucial to making a sound financial decision and that is why it is so essential for buyers and sellers to contact a REALTOR before they make a move. REALTORS play an integral role in helping consumers understand different local real estate market conditions.”
In conjunction with the CMCAR’s efforts, New Jersey Association of REALTORS,’ a non-profit organization serving the professional needs of approximately 53,000 REALTOR and REALTOR-ASSOCIATE members in the state, recently launched a public education campaign to encourage potential clients to “Get the REAL Story” on real estate in New Jersey. The campaign is intended to spotlight the positive aspects of the current climate for consumers.
