I grew up in the Jersey Shore area and
all my best memories as a child was here. We always wanted to buy a home here now we’re in a condition to do that. And this is where we want to live and retire. Our roots are here and I want my children to grow up on the Jersey Shore in the summers. I would love to be here all year-round, it would be great, but we
have four boys to put through college so a house that we could balance with a
little fun and then also a rental so that would help us afford it, would be
the perfect thing for us. Our dream with this home is to purchase it and then rent it out to use the necessary income we need to help pay the mortgage. It’s only an hour away and you can go visit it when we don’t have a renter, and you remind yourself why it is that we bought in that area. I joke with my friends that you can’t really play with your mutual funds but you can play with your shore house, so we thought it was a great investment for us. I think our long term goal would be once we sell our home up north then we’ll be able to move down
there full-time, which makes us extremely happy and looking forward to the future
here as well. It’s just a special place.
