Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update September 13th, 2018 #RealEstate #NJ

THANK YOU, GOODRICH FAMILY!  Fifty nine years ago Bernard Goodrich and his young family visited a friend in Avalon, and stayed for a week at The Princeton Hotel.  The family has returned to Avalon each year since, renting numerous vacation homes through Avalon Real Estate Agency, and later Long & Foster.  The family has enjoyed many locations over the years including 42nd Street & the bay, 72nd Street, Avalon Avenue, and most recently, First Avenue.  Bernard’s wife Peggy passed away recently, but as he says, “I continue to look forward to our relaxing Avalon August [vacation] and hope it comes around quickly again for 2019. Look for the us on the 11th Street beach.”  We will, Mr. Goodrich, and thank you for allowing Long & Foster to help with your vacation plans for so many years!

THE LOWEST PROPERTY TAX RATES: recently ranked the 30 New Jersey towns with the lowest property tax rates, and Cape May County’s beach towns made an impressive showing.  At #15 on the list was Ocean City, just behind #14 Cape May.  Sea Isle City holds the #5 spot, with Cape May Point taking #3.  Stone Harbor took the #2 spot, while Avalon topped the list with the lowest property tax rate in the state.  The ranking was made by comparing the equalized property tax rates for 2017.  Click here for the full article:

BE PREPARED and informed in the event of a coastal storm, flooding, or other weather emergency on Seven Mile Beach.  As the Carolinas brace for the landfall of Florence, it’s always wise to be prepared and informed in advance of severe weather conditions.  When Avalon & Stone Harbor experience severe weather, check and for periodic updates.  For  phone notification, there is a sign up form on each of those sites where you can request notifications for your telephone or mobile phone.  For 8 tips on preparing for an emergency click here:
