Shore Spotlight: Living in Avalon, NJ

If you're considering a move down the shore or investing in a secondary residence, Avalon is a fantastic shore town to consider in your search! Avalon is known for being a "chic" town with many beautiful (and large) shore homes that start at a much higher price point than other shore towns in South Jersey.

Although pursuing a home in Avalon will likely come with a considerable price tag, it is a great option if your budget has flexibility! 

Homes and Neighborhoods

Many of the homes in Avalon feature Craftsman and Cape Cod-style exteriors with beautiful lawns and lanscaping. The option of having a front lawn down the shore is not always available for properties in other shorepoints, so this is a big benefit for many.

There are a lot of different types of homes in Avalon from single-family living to townhomes and beyond. Depending on your needs (and wants), it's likely that Avalon can offer you the style of living you'll find most comfortable. 

Lifestyle

Avalon is a smaller island and getting around town is easy by foot, bike or a car when necessary. There are many restaurants for brunch, lunch and bars with great nightlife in the town. Even during the off-season (in the winter), Avalon still has a lot to offer residents and visitors alike. 

The summer months are the perfect time to enjoy life at the beach in Avalon! From relaxing with a book in the sand to swimming and watersports, there are endless options for fun in the sun at this shore point!

Shopping, Restaurants and Nightlife

There's a lot of shopping in Avalon, particularly along Dune Drive. Additionally, you'll find many choices for eating out on the town. There are many casual options like pizza places or spots where you can wear relaxed clothing, and there are also many higher end restaurant options that offer great seafood and ocean views!

Nothing beats ending a beautiful day at the beach with a refreshing beer or cocktail while the sun goes down. Be sure to check out Google or Yelp to find some of the highest rated locations for your next trip (or move) to Avalon. Another great option is to search for recommendations on Facebook or Avalon Facebook groups (you're bound to find one of two hidden gems)!

Real Estate

The current median listing price in Avalon (according to Realtor.com) is $2.5 million. There are many homes listed at higher price points and a few homes within lower price points right now, too. If you need assistance finding a home that suits your budget in Avalon or the surrounding shore towns, feel free to reach out and we'd be glad to assist!

Although living in Avalon is a dream come true for most, it may or may not be the right location for you. Depending on budget and your "must-haves" in a shore home, there are plenty of aspects to consider when determining your ideal place to call home.
