Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update September 14th, 2017

MORTGAGE RATES are incredibly attractive again, with 30-year fixed rates around 3.75% for both jumbo and conventional loans.  That makes it a great time to lock in low financing costs—for three decades!  Whether you are ready to purchase a shore home, or simply want to refinance, call or email me and I’ll put you in touch with a reliable mortgage lender!

The Cove in Cape May makes a for a great place to walk the beach and view the Cape May Lighthouse.

NEED TECH HELP?  The Avalon Free Public Library is ready to help!  The library will be offering six free tech sessions each month—bring your device and stop by for help.  For a list of tech sessions (and other library events), click here:  Can’t find a session that matches your schedule?  Stop by the library and make an appointment for one-on-one help!

BIRDWATCHING SEASON is upon us…cooler fall weather brings birdwatchers to the area as they watch and track a variety of bird species.  Cape May County is located along the Atlantic Flyway, and its funnel shape means a variety of migratory birds are visible before they cross the Delaware Bay headed for  locations further south, making Cape May County one of the top bird watching destinations in the country.

“FITZ,” the main character in Discovery Channel’s television miniseries “Manhunt: Unabomber,” is modeled after now-retired FBI agent James Fitzgerald.  The television series profiles “Fitz” as he joins the ongoing Unabomber investigation, applies new forensic linguistic techniques, and ultimately helps solve the case.  Fitzgerald has authored three memoirs in his retirement, including “A Journey to the Center of the Mind: The First Ten FBI Years.”  Fitzgerald will appear October 18th at the Sea Isle City Library at a book signing event.

SEVEN MILE ISLAND IS BLESSED with many of the finest homes in the area.  But once in a while something extraordinary comes along, such as our Featured Property shown below.  Situated on an oversized oceanfront lot in Avalon’s south end, its elegant design, high-end materials, and endless ocean views make it truly extraordinary!  See our Featured Property below!
