Tagged with: Homebuyers Homeowners Homeownership Moving SpareFoot Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago From the aggravation of purging and packing to the annoyance of scheduling and transporting belongings from point A to B, the process of moving can sometimes be rife with frustrations. According to a survey conducted by SpareFoot, an online self-storage marketplace, nearly two-thirds of those surveyed said they would consider moving if not for the hassles involved.The company surveyed more than 1,000 Americans adults to gauge a clearer understanding of how and why consumers are moving. Although 46 percent said they had moved recently or planned on moving in the next year, 67 percent said they would definitely or probably move if the process were easier and less anxiety-ridden, SpareFoot reported.Additional data serves to underscore that sentiment: The headaches associated with a move have left 66 percent of respondents feeling stuck in a home they don’t like, while 49 percent have reported tolerating a bad roommate simply to avoid a move. Millennials and Gen Z’ers are less likely to turn the other cheek, however, with nearly one-third, or 32 percent, saying they have moved in the past year, compared with a mere 15 percent of the general populace.As for why people have moved, the reasons vary. Thirty-seven percent reported moving in order to find more affordable housing, 28 percent said they had moved for a job, 19 percent cited a desire to flee an undesirable neighbor, and 13 percent reported moving in search of a home that could better accommodate their pets, SpareFoot says. A majority said the best thing about moving was having a “fresh clean space,” the company noted.Of course, there is more than just inconvenience and anxiety compelling some homeowners to stay put where they are. The housing market has been defined in recent months by skyrocketing home prices, insufficient housing inventory, and gradually increasing interest rates. While homebuyer demand remains strong, finding that dream home can definitely be more complicated these days.Echoing the SpareFoot survey results, a recent Bankrate survey found that 62 percent of surveyed homeowners said they had no plans to move out of their current home, whereas 30 percent said they planned to move sometime within a decade. Breaking it down further, 21 percent said they planned to move within 0-5 years, 14 percent said they planned to move within 6-20 years, and just 3 percent said they planned to move, but not for more than 20 years.

Beachgoers Waste No Time Trying New Sand at Third Street

first_imgIf there were any doubts Ocean City is a beach town, they were laid to rest on Sunday as a few hardy folks seemed right at home on a new beach that was exactly one day old. Despite a chilly breeze and cloudy skies, visitors could be seen enjoying their new stretch of beach all day.As the network of pipes, cluster of heavy equipment and about a dozen hard-hatted workers made their way South onto Fourth Street, a wide swath of fresh sand remained where the crew had been the day before.A lone surf fisherman had set up his chair and tackle box near the rock jetty and was clearly enjoying his new surroundings. On the other side of the rocks a group of teenagers tossed a Frisbee around as if it were a sunny day in July.The restoration of Third Street, under the watchful eye of the OCNJDaily cameras all weekend, was complete.Previously, the Third Street beach was nearly gone at high tide, as the ocean lapped precariously close to the dunes.“Even at low tide, there wasn’t a whole lot there,” Gardens Plaza resident Bob Casey said, as he watched the work from the Boardwalk at Third. “Now look…we have a beach! These guys have done a great job on this project.”The new Third Street beach is part of the $13.4 million joint project of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the city and the state.According to reports, the Federal and State Governments are paying for $12.2 million with the City earmarking $1.2 million of the project.The replenishment began October 24 at Seaspray Road and will add 1.3 million cubic yards of new sand from Seaspray to 14th Street.In addition, sand will be added to the dune system between 5th and 10th Streets. The project was expected to be finished by early next year.  But unseasonably warm weather and mostly calm seas helped accelerate the project, now estimated to be finished by Christmas, according to city officials.last_img read more
