It won't be long until Jack Frost is nippin' at your nose and toes but the weather this season has been warm. Avalon and Stone Harbor is busy making all their holiday touches for festive season only 3 weeks away. And the 2018 Holiday beach tags go on sale on Festive Friday and Snowfest Saturday.

Vacation home inventory is at an all-time low. New owners are choosing to use their homes rather than rent them and if they choose to rent, the time is limited. Many vacationers realize this and are booking earlier than ever. So that makes it very important for all vacationers to book their 2018 vacation as soon as possible. Call us today. Do not delay. We will find you the ideal spot before it is too late. Remember to book your vacation rental for 2018.

Townsend's Inlet Bridge Update
The Townsends Inlet Bridge between Avalon and Sea Isle City will be closed from 10:00pm Friday, November 10th to 5:00am Saturday, November 11th to install the concrete construction barrier curb and temporary traffic signal system for the first phase of work under the Bridge Railing Replacement project. When traffic is permitted on the bridge at 5am on Saturday, the southbound lane will be closed to traffic and alternating traffic will be maintained in the northbound lane by a temporary traffic signal system. No tolls will be collected when the bridge is reduced to one lane of traffic.

Avalon Anchorage Marina Development
A settlement has been reached with the Borough of Avalon, the Planning and Zoning Board and the owner of Avalon Anchorage Marina. The marina's redevelopment plan has been approved with provisions that protect the operation of public boat slips with a Borough investment for the 21st Street area that will enhance public access to the waterways in Avalon.

Bells Will Not Be Ringing?
Avalon borough's council is considering an ordinance to ban peddlers from selling ice cream and other items on the beach and streets. The ordinance would silence the bells and whistles on the push carts to keep the peace. Officials say people are complaining about the noise disruption and those opposed to the ordinance like the summer sounds.

Avalon and Stone Harbor Real Estate
As we enter our "slow months" here at the shore, we look over our shoulders at one of our busiest years in recent history with sales surpassing those of similar time frames over the past 10 years and double digit increase in median property values.

Over the past 5 years the island wide median sale price has grown by 23%. Year over year 2017 to 2016 the increase is 7%. Specifically in the townhome market the island has seen a 20% median appreciation over the past five years. Unit sales are ahead 10% in the past five years while condo unit sales are ahead 39%. The condo market has experienced a 19% median appreciation in that same time frame. Single home unit sales are ahead 34% over the past five years while median value have appreciated by 24%.

Available inventory continues to plague us as we move into the end of the year. New inventory will be critical if we are to maintain this trend into 2018.
