Avalon/Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update October 6th, 2016

88 PROPERTIES ARE CURRENTLY UNDER CONTRACT in the local market!  Asking prices range from $139,900 (for a lot in Stone Harbor Manor) to $4,999,999 (for a large bayfront home in Avalon).  The wide range of property types—and prices—means there is something for everyone in the local real estate market!  Ready to make a move?  Please call me!
What a view!  This home in Avalon Manor is surrounded by tidal creeks and marsh, and enjoys a view that stretches for miles. 

THE LOGGERHEAD TURTLE rescued from Avalon’s 12th Street beach last week is being cared for in a pool at the Marine Mammal Stranding Center.  The 280-pound female was said to be dehydrated, but seems healthy despite not having eaten properly since being rescued.  If the turtle begins eating again it could be released to the ocean in a month.

NEED TO SEE THE BEACH even when you can’t be here? You can check it out any time thanks to Avalon’s webcams! See the beach and bay here:

AVALON’S SEAFOOD FESTIVAL takes place Saturday and Sunday, from 10am to 5pm, at 30th Street & the beach.  Stop by and enjoy some chowder, crabcakes, or your favorite seafood treat!  Beer & wine will be available, along with live NFL and college football games on TV, plus music and activities for the kids!

SAVE THE DATE!  Plan ahead and spend your Thanksgiving weekend here on the Island!  After a traditional turkey dinner on Thursday you’ll find plenty to do the rest of the weekend.  From “Festive Friday” in Avalon to “It’s a Wonderful Life” in Stone Harbor, to a huge parade Saturday evening, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!  Watch our future event lists for more details!
