'tis the season Yes Virginia, there IS real estate sold at the Jersey shore in November and December .... Smart, qualified and motivated Buyers and Sellers haven't closed shop for the holidays. In fact, January and February are even good months to buy and sell. The internet has changed buying habits - AND selling strategies. With Real Estate websites open 24-7 buyers can shop for a home at the shore as easily as they can a tie or a Phillies World championship shirt. I treated myself to a pre-holiday gift and upgraded to a Blackberry so I can receive my emails and do MLS searches even if I'm out of the office picking up holiday gifts (although I do most of my shopping online these days). No longer will I accept the notion that November and December are SLOW months - Today's Sellers know...

First, let me apologize about being so sporadic with my entries, but my 12 week old doesn't like to let me get too much work done, so I have to fit a lot of things into short amounts of time.  Second, my thought of the day is household hazardous waste.  I know - sounds scary, but most people really do have hazardous waste in their homes without even thinking about it as hazardous.  What brought this to mind was the lawn guy coming to clear our irrigation lines for the winter.  Yes, it's time to put the lawn mowers and weed wackers to rest for a few months, but do you really want them sitting around in your garage or shed all winter with gasoline inside? Casual exposure to gasoline fumes are irritating to your lungs and can cause nervous system effects like dizziness and headaches.  So, ...

You may be wondering why this is a real estate blog, yet I haven't focused specifically on green building techniques.  Well, that is because if you are trying to help the environment, there are many things you can do that are not related directly to your home itself, but what you do in it, and my passion for the environment drives me to tell you about all sorts of tips and info, rather than just focus on business.  Also, green building is costly, and with the current economic conditions, it might be hard for people to make the commitment to go green when the technologies are still quite costly compared to traditional building (though, I think the environmental benefits are worth it).  Plus, the majority of houses bought and sold are not new and unless major renovations are taking place,...

Today I attended the Dedication of the Ocean City, NJ Solar Project.  They "turned on the switch" to the alternative energy system that will provide the city with 17% of their electric needs.  It is one of the largest (if not the largest) municipal solar projects in the state of New Jersey and was really cool to see.  When the project is complete, it will consist of over 2000 panels, saving over 900 barrels of oil per year.  From this project, the solar power produced is equivalent to the annual usage of nearly 50 homes.  It is great to see municipal government being so proactive in the alternative energy arena.  Ocean City is such a great place.  On the beach in the summer enjoy the sun on your skin and in the winter when you're not feeling the warmth, know that same sun is helping to ...

Below are some pictures of the Ocean City, NJ golf course.  The golf course is located a long Bay Ave. right next to the airport.   It is just one of many family activities to do in Ocean City.  The cost to play varies by time and season, but is always inexpensive compared to many courses in the area.   There are many great golf courses in the area.  If you have questions feel free to ask me.

The South End of Ocean City, NJ is a great place to live or spend the summers.  If you like nature, it is the place to be.  Corson's Inlet State Park is located in Ocean City's South End.  The South End beaches are usually less crowded then other beaches and still within walking distance to playgrounds and  some shops.  Here are some pictures of Ocean City's South End.   One of the best features of the Ocean City beaches is on a hot summer day the Ice Cream comes to you.   Hope it Helps:) Clint Gill Century21 Alliance Ocean City ClintGill@Century21.com www.OceanCitySalesandRentals.com Ocean City Real Estate Ocean City homes for sale

If you are looking for something to do while in Ocean City, New Jersey Corson's Inlet State Park is a Great Place.  Corson's Inlet is located in the South End of Ocean City and extends into Strathmere.  The park offers fishing, boating, nature and beach activities.  On the Strathmere side of the inlet there is a beach bar that you can access by boat or land.  There is also a waterfront restaurant with beautiful sunsets.  There is a boat ramp at the base of the bridge along Ocean Drive.  I would caution boaters that there are sand bars in the middle of the inlet and there are no channel markers.    Hope it helps:) Clint Gill Century 21 Alliance Ocean City ClintGill@Century21.com www.OceannCitySalesandRentals.com www.ClintGill.com Ocean City, New Jersey Real Estate Homes for sale in Ocean...

Ocean City, NJ is a great beach community that has many active, outdoor things to do.  Every morning the boardwalk has people exercising.  There are people riding their bikes, running, walking etc.   The boardwalk is the perfect place to exercise because it is usually a little cooler then most other places in the summer and offers some great views for motivation.  Ocean City also has tennis courts, basketball courts, skate park, volleyball, golf course, bike path etc.  The list of activies is endless.  Buying a home, condo or investment property in Ocean City is also buying into an active community.   Hope it helps: Clint Gill ClintGill@Century21.com www.OceanCitySalesandRentals.com www.ClintGill.com   Ocean City Real Estate Buying a home is Ocean City

Ocean City New Jersey has installed many new cross walks to make it safer for pedestrians to get around Ocean City.  It is a New Jersey State law, that an automobile or bicycle, must yield to a pedestrian in a cross walk.  Yielding to the pedestrians heading to the beach or boardwalk will make Ocean City a safer place.    Hope it help:) Clint Gill Century 21 Alliance Ocean City ClintGill@Century21.com www.OceanCitySalesandRentals.com www.ClintGill.com

Sunday is starting off as another great day in Ocean City.  The weather is partly sunny with a high in the mid 70's to 80.  There is a chance of some thunderstorms this afternoon to early evening so if you are at the beach, boardwalk or out fishing keep an eye to the sky for severe weather.   Hope this helps:) Clint Gill Century 21 Alliance Ocean City www.OceanCitySalesandRentals.com www.ClintGill.com ClintGill@Century21.com

Ocean City's 9th Street Bridge (Route 52) is being completely redone and during the construction the speed limit is 35 mph.  For both saftey reasons and to avoid a ticket I would not suggest speeding on this bridge.  Local tip. If anyone has more questions or needs information about Ocean City feel free to email me. Hope it helps:) Clint ClintGill@Century21.Com

I usually work most Saturdays of the year.  Today I took some time off and went fishing with my nephews.  I think it was time very well spent.  Getting out there with them and sharing family time fishing is something that cannot be replaced as time goes by.  My day was perfect, fresh fish, fresh air, sunshine and irreplaceable memories. I hope everyone takes the time to ejoy the summer Clint

This weekend looks like it is going to be another Great weekend in Ocean City, New Jersey.  Saturday looks like it will be sunny with a high of 85 and Sunday looks like it will be a pretty dry day high 75 - 80 with a possibility of some scattered thunderstorms. Take advantage of the terrific fishing that is happening now, before all the boats get down for the summer.  The high tide in the Ocean City back bay  and 9th Street bridge are 10:47 am on Saturday June 21 and 11:28 am on Sunday June 22nd.  This will make for some great fishing in the morning and still have time for some Ocean City family in the afternoon. This is also the perfect time of year to visit the Ocean City boardwalk.  Rides, shops, food and all before parking gets hard to find. Stop by or call Century 21 Alliance of Oc...
