There isn't one day that passes that you don't see bad financial news in the newspaper or on the television or radio. Well that's all going to change now, especially if you live in the New Jersey Shore towns of Avon, Belmar, Spring Lake, Sea Girt, Manasquan, Point Pleasant, Bay Head, Mantoloking, Normandy Beach, Chadwick, Lavalette, Ortley Beach, or Seaside Park. According to Paul R Hauke, a Realtor Associate with Prudential Zack Shore Properties with 11 offices along the Jersey Shore, a specialist in Ocean Front, Waterfront and Resort Properties along the New Jersey Shore prices are holding steady and in many areas increasing. The reason is that people are buying along the Jersey Shore and the demand is strong. For instance many buyers who have large amounts of cash sitting in bank accounts that are earning very, very low interest have been buying Jersey Shore Resort Homes for cash. They are figuring on getting the rental money and the appreciation on the property. They figure the return will absolutely beat whatever they are earning in the bank and they also have the use of the property when not rented. Smart buyers.
On the other hand are the sellers. Sellers in such great Jersey Shore towns are reaping the benefits. There prices have been holding and they are reaping the gains. There are properties from the mid $200,000.00 range up to multi millions. Along the price range there are new and converted condos and new and completely renovated houses and of course one of a kind mansions and estates.
On the waterfront at the Jersey Shore prices are still climbing. Paul R Hauke, a Realtor Associate with Pruzack, studies and tracks the real estate values along the Jersey Shore and has found that Waterfront properties prices have been escalating. Properties with docks for boats and easy access to the Bays and Ocean are still high on demand. Small homes in such areas as Ocean Beach , with docks , can still be had for $300,000.00 to $400,000.00 with a moderately priced waterfront home with deep water docks and easy fishing access still bringing $1,000,000.00 plus. In towns like Point Pleasant Boro. Ocean front homes, both on the beach and across the street from the beaches, in such towns as Spring Lake, Sea Girt, Bay Head, and Mantoloking bring three, four and five million.
Many Jersey Shore Real Estate buyers are looking for second homes now that they can make year round homes later. Such houses between $900,000.00 and $2,000,000.00 have seen a 25 % increase in pricing. Some Jersey Shore Realtors have reported their sales up as much as 26% over last year.
