Avalon & Stone Harbor - October Market Update


The start of our fall season has been a very strong one. The market has continue to run with low inventory levels and high demand for property. Data indicates that we are expecting the market to remain strong moving into the winter months. The real estate market in Avalon & Stone Harbor is continuing to move at a record pace. In today's fast paced market, it's more important than ever to align yourself with an agent and a brokerage that offers in-depth knowledge, unwavering commitment, and persistence. The rapidity of the market means that you need an agent who can negotiate your best offer if you're selling or find you an off-market listing if you're interested in buying.




Active sale inventory for Avalon & Stone Harbor real estate has decreased a small amount since last month. We now sit at 61 total properties for sale. Which is 14 less when compared to last month. Of those that are active, 44 are in Avalon, and 17 are in Stone Harbor. Motivated buyers in this market still need to be ready to react if a property in their price range gets listed! The number of buyers looking for property are very high. We hope to see inventory in Avalon & Stone Harbor increase a bit as we move through the fall season and into winter, but it may be a while before those levels return to a healthy number.

Market Update - Avalon & Stone Harbor Rentals


As we near the end of our renting season, we are finding many tenants leaving reservations to rent the same property in 2022. It seems like inventory will remain low going into the 2022 season. The demand for weekly rentals are very high. Many tenants are inquiring earlier than normal to reserve a property. If you are looking to rent next year, contact an agent in our office to find a home that suits your desired lifestyle. Owners will not return 2022 rates and availability until the 2021 season ends. When we receive back the authorization forms, we will be able to reserve properties and create leases. Connect with an agent who can find options for NJ vacation rentals on the 7 Mile Island. New inventory does populate, we can send you properties before they become active on the market!
