Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update September 20, 2018 #RealEstate

MARKET STATS:  45 new sale contracts were written during the month of August as the number of active listings declined slightly.  The median sold price was $1,355,000 last month.  For a detailed look at the latest market stats see the newest Long & Foster Market Minute report:

R.U.S.T. IN WILMINGTON, NC:  Cape May County sent members of its Regional Urban Search Team (RUST) to Wilmington, North Carolina as part of a task force to assist local authorities.  The team is trained in high-water rescues, and has assisted with evacuations in Wilmington.  They are expected to remain in the area for a couple of weeks.

NO MORE COIN TOSSING on the Garden State Parkway!  Coin collection machines at the Parkway mainline toll barriers will be removed, meaning those wanting to use coins or cash must travel through a toll lane staffed by an attendant.  The aging coin machines are difficult to maintain with parts becoming scarce.  Coin collection machines will remain at Parkway entrances and exits, and parts from the decommissioned mainline machines will be used to keep those operating.

IT’S 14.8 MILES AROUND!  With the Townsend’s Inlet Bridge now closed until next May, travelling from 7th Street in Avalon to 93rd Street in Sea Isle City is now a 14.8 mile trip.  The bridge closed early Monday morning as heavy equipment moved in to begin the 8-month, $8.6 million project to replace seven of the bridge’s 27 spans.  No vehicles, bicycles, or pedestrians will be allowed on the bridge during the project.  Crossing the bridge from Avalon to Sea Isle City would normally take just a few minutes.  Google Maps now calculates “the long way around” at 27 minutes!
