Stone Harbor Point Closure
The Borough of Stone Harbor is extending the closure of Stone Harbor Point to beach vehicles until October 1st. The borough is giving extra protection to Black Skimmers, a state endangered bird which is successfully nesting at Stone Harbor Point. The nesting site is one of only three skimmer colonies in the state. The chicks are tough to see since they are sand colored and of course they don't stay within fenced areas. The NJ Department of Environmental Protection has requested the borough postpone the opening to motor vehicle at the point.

Market Trend Update for August
Every year the summer days seem to fly by faster. There is never enough time to enjoy the beach AND find the ideal vacation home to call their own.

As we enter the late summer/early fall season we see a continued build-up of anxious buyers looking for their place in the sun. Our expectation is for an excellent selling season assuming inventory levels build. We have begun to see new entries of single homes hitting the market. Prospective sellers should take an accounting now and prepare to list their homes while demand is high, interest continues to build, and rates remain attractive. This selling season is a short one so listing now is to your advantage. Current sale listing owners also should work now to ensure their home is ready for sale regarding both presentation and positioning. Whether you own a condo/townhome or single family home - bay, beach block or in between - rest assured there is a buyer on this island for your home. Value and presentation are what make a difference in listing for sale vs. listing for showings. >

The months of August and July surpassed last year's sales for both months, with over 40 properties under contract. As of August 31st, 2018, single family sales in Avalon surpassed last year by 29% while single home sales in Stone Harbor were consistent with last year. Townhome/condo sales were even in Avalon compared to last year, while Stone Harbor's sales were off substantially. We see the townhome/condo category plagued with the same issue we have seen in the $1.0-$2.0 million single family homes - a lack of inventory! Our buyer in the $500,000-$900,000 condo/townhome price range has literally less than a two months' supply of properties to consider on the entire island.

August sales of single homes ranged from $950,000 to over $6.0 million on Avalon's bay. 5 beach block homes/lot sold in Avalon from $2.1-$4.0 million while Stone Harbor had the only oceanfront sale for the month at $5.5 million. In 2017 the highest sale for the month of August was in Avalon - the sale of a new construction oceanfront at $7.5. Single home sales broken down by price point were:

9 $1.0-$2.0 million
11 $2.3-$3.0 million
5 $3.0+ million





If I can be of assistance in finding a buyer for your home or a home to purchase give me a call today. I look forward to assisting you reach your goal!

Here's hoping the warm days last far into the fall season. § Holly Rennie
