Not a bad article. I lived in Medford and Medford Lakes for years and have lots of fond memories. Happy to be away from all the development and traffic now though. This part is really crazy, but I suppose dropping $615,000 is no big deal for some people?
"So enthusiastic were the Cookises about Medford — a 39-square-mile township, about two-thirds of which lies in the Pinelands National Reserve — that they ended up buying their 2,800-square-foot colonial in the Oakwood Lakes neighborhood before ever stepping foot inside. After a FaceTime walk-through with their real estate agent, Cheryl George, of Weichert, they offered $615,000 for the four-bedroom house on 0.67 acres"
BTW, I couldn't read the article because it requires a subscription. If you can't access it, try pasting the following into a Google search, it worked for me:
