Avalon & Stone Harbor Beach

Everyone who lives around the East is familiar with the Jersey Shore. For many generations, families have spent their vacation time visiting shore towns during the summer months. The shore is always a few degrees cooler than temperatures inland, and this is one of many motives for people to travel over to the Jersey coast. More specifically, Avalon & Stone Harbor are considered a ‘gem’ on the east coast for numerous reasons. Off exit 13 on the garden state parkway, the pristine beaches and atmosphere are unmatched. There is truly something for everyone on this island. During the heat of the summer, there is no place you would rather be. Soaking up the sun on the beach, swimming in the ocean and bay, enjoying the breeze, and breathtaking views. It is effortless to understand why Avalon & Stone Harbor have become such popular destinations. 

Avalon & Stone Harbor, more than any other Jersey Shore town, have one of the most prevalent and extraordinary real estate markets. Over the years, real estate values in this area have increased significantly. The economic values are sincerely unmatched, in a unique market. There are truly unprecedented bayfront and oceanfront properties, which you can not find elsewhere. Most of the homes on the 7 Mile Island are only used during the summer months. These are secondary homes, which means the owners reside full time somewhere else in primary markets like the greater Philadelphia area, New York, and Washington D.C.

Avalon’s catchy motto “Cooler by a Mile” resides because the beach juts out into the ocean about a mile further than other barrier islands.

Properties near or on the beach are some of the most prestigious and valued properties at the Jersey Shore. Specifically in Avalon & Stone Harbor, you will find the most extraordinary and exceptional oceanfront homes. For decades, families on the East have traveled to the coast during the summer. Here on the 7 Mile Island, beaches have earned a reputation of being the cleanest and most pristine on the coast. This is a large reason why the values of oceanfront real estate are incredibly strong. Typically, real estate values strengthen towards the east, and likewise weaken with the properties more west. At the eastern tip of Avalon & Stone Harbor, the oceanfront real estate is at display. Today, land values are approximately 5 to 10 million dollars -- depending on location and size of the lot. These values come to be very surprising to people who are unfamiliar with the market. Real estate is actually a consumer driven market, meaning the value of the real estate is worth what someone is willing to pay for it at the time. Even though the price is very high, there is a high demand for these properties. There are only so many oceanfront properties that exist, and unfortunately no more can be created. This finite supply causes the rise in value. Ultimately, the incredible values derive from panoramic views of the beach from sunrise to sunset, they are truly breathtaking.
