3 Reasons Why Wall Township a Great Place to Live

1. Wall Township is ideally located on the Jersey Shore

Wall Township, comprised of approximately 32 square miles of Southern Monmouth County, is a wonderful community in which to live. Wall’s location – bordered by the Manasquan River on the South and Shark River on the North – makes it very attractive. There are homes on the river if you want a water view or a place to dock your boat. It’s only a short distance to beautiful beaches, and the Edgar Felix Bike Path takes you right through Manasquan or to Allaire State Park.

There is also easy access to the Garden State Parkway, Route 18, Highways 71, 35, 34, and Highway 138 connecting to Interstate 195. Additionally, mass transit such as buses, trains, and ferries make Wall Township very commuter-friendly. Corporate jets from Allaire Airport fly over tree-edged open spaces dotted with businesses, industries, clusters of homes, stable lands, and tilled farms.

Wall’s proximity to beaches, rivers, Allaire State Park, and farmland make the township an ideal place for outdoor activities. Horsebackriding, boating, surfing, fishing, golf, camping, running, biking, swimming, tennis, basketball, soccer…and the list goes on.

2. A Home Type for Everyone

Whatever your lifestyle preferences are, Wall Township has a home for you. Aside from the wonderful educational choices in the Township, Wall offers a mix of single-family homes, multi-family homes, condos, townhouses, and adult communities. So, it is understandable why so many people want to live here.

3.The Facts

If you know you want to live in Wall – or already live in the Township and are considering downsizing or moving to something larger – I would suggest making the move sooner rather than later. In case having a home that suits your needs in an ideal location with lots to do and a great school system doesn’t convince you, let me quickly review some current Wall Township numbers and trends that make Wall even more appealing:

Home sales are increasing - The number of closed properties has been steadily rising month over month in 2013.

In conclusion, the median price of homes in Wall township is rising, and there has been a steady reduction in inventory (in July, the number of properties under contract exceeded the new properties coming on the market). Properties are spending less time on the market before attracting a buyer, which is also evidenced by the increase in the number of properties sold month over month. If the trends continue, you will most likely be competing with many others for less available property choices – therefore the longer you wait, the more limited your choices will be and the more you will have to pay. Add all of this to the rise in mortgage rates, and it’s as plain as the eye can see: contact me now, so that I can help you find your perfect home in Wall Township!
