Whether you’re in the market for a summer home, year-round seashore domicile or investment property with good rental potential, this home at 219 N. Hanover Ave. in Margate, with its lush, landscaped yard and high and dry location, may be exactly what you had in mind.

This just-right Margate ranch home is just waiting for the right customer: If a resort house could ever be described as being “just right,” it’s the four-bedroom, two-bath residence on the market at 219 N. Hanover Ave.

My Happy Place: Most properties don’t even have one Humvee sitting on it, nevermind two of them. But, Chuck Knutson, 55, of Galloway Township, is not a typical homeowner.

U.S. long-term mortgage rates fell this week for the third straight week, as the benchmark 30-year loan marked its lowest point in three years.

Not so Placid: Lake Placid is a picture-book village in the Adirondack Mountains offering tourists crisp air, pretty peaks, Winter Olympic sites and, lately, a lot more houses to rent for the weekend. The rising popularity of short-term rentals on services like Airbnb is alarming residents who fear they’re gobbling up so much of the housing market that workers who want to live there are getting frozen out.

Hot property: After nearly three decades, Joe Mantegna is calling it quits in the Toluca Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. The veteran actor, whose myriad credits include “Three Amigos,” “The Godfather Part III” and “Criminal Minds,” has listed his Tudor-style haunt for $4.195 million.
