With home buyers finding Ocean County a viable alternative to living in more urban areas, Barnegat offer's what people are looking for as either a primary residence or secondary/vacation home, not to mention the myriad of retirement communities.

With the continuing trend of working from home, the desire for more space, both interior and exterior, we can expect a strong housing market for 2021.

Bottom Line:  The seller’s market in Barnegat will continue. If you’re thinking about selling, now may be the time to talk to me.

Note: The increase in list and sales price doesn’t necessarily mean your home’s value has grown by that percentage, it can also mean that there are more expensive homes on the market and a reduction in more affordable homes for sale or being sold.
