Seashore Communities

lucyThe barrier islands- and the individual beach towns- along the South Jersey coast share the same basic amenities: white sand beaches, the ocean, and back bays.

So what attracts visitors and buyers to a specific location?

It can be as simple as following a tradition from their childhood. If your family vacationed in Stone Harbor every year, it will likely be your first thought for a summer rental.   We tend to stay within our comfort zone…do you know others who live in town?  Will your kids be able to make friends?  Can they get summer jobs? 

LongportI spent last weekend in Margate (with Lucy The Elephant…and my sisters), and walked around Longport (a variety of beautiful homes to admire).  Interesting to compare the beach communities.
