Lucky to work just 2 blocks from the beach…and have a pair of sneakers in my car
After a few days of bright sun and moderate temperatures, we are back to chilly rain.
Posting Monday’s sunrise picture to hold me over
This phrase may sound odd, yet it’s often true for residential real estate along the coast.
An older home may be well maintained and charming; but if it doesn’t suit the life style of today’s buyer, the building’s value is minimal.
Our other reality: building codes/elevation.
The federal government is phasing out the subsidies in the flood insurance program. Homes built prior to 1974 (before elevation codes enforced) are likely to sit lower than required, and if so, cost more to insure.
And if a buyer decides to take on a major renovation project, the municipality will require the home be brought up to code (including elevation). We are seeing several island properties getting a “lift” – an expensive option, but certainly far less than brand new construction.
If you have any questions regarding market values in Avalon or Stone Harbor NJ, please let me know.
I appreciate the opportunity to help!
The oystercatchers are fun to watch (and hard to photograph!). I almost always see them in pairs, and they have a distinct squawk as they fly overhead.

Yes, there will be some inconvenience during the beach restoration project; however the end result will be safe beach access along the north end of our island.
The rising sun, a colorful sky, osprey, a few dolphins, a bright moon…oh, and the beach front homes!
Busy Easter weekend in Avalon and Stone Harbor. REALLY nice when out of the wind and facing the sun!
