Avalon/Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update July 28th, 2016



MORE HOT WEATHER is on tap for the next several days, with daytime highs predicted to reach well into the 80s through the weekend.  Both the temperature and humidity levels will be down a bit from what we’ve experienced in recent days, making it a bit more comfortable.

BEAT THE HEAT!  The ocean water temperature is a delightful 75 degrees along the beach, after a couple of days of sea breezes pushed warm surface water back toward shore.  A gentle sea breeze is the best way to cool off on a hot, humid summer day—aside from a dip in the ocean!


A fishing boat passes by the Avalon Fishing Pier at sunrise.  The look of the pier has changed since its recent extension.


STONE HARBOR hopes to continue its back bay dredging project in the fall, and is working with a consultant and contractor to submit permit paperwork to the NJDEP.  The municipal marina parking lot at 80th Street would be used once again as a dewatering site for dredge material.  An earlier dredging project was halted after problems at the same dewatering site were discovered.

FUN STUFF!  It’s time to take advantage of all the summer activities available in the area!  Catch a movie on the beach, climb a lighthouse under a full moon, take in a concert, tour the Bird Sanctuary!  See below for a variety of events to choose from—then make time for yourself to enjoy them!

SALES UP: Long & Foster’s Coastal Region, which includes Avalon & Stone Harbor, saw sale volume increase by 36% during the month of June, while units increased by 6%.  Attractive interest rates and strong demand are driving the market.  Jump in, the water’s fine!  Call me today to begin your search for the perfect shore property!
