Around the Block

Affluent families with generations of ownership and seasonal renters looking for an upscale experience.

Avalon is the northernmost beach town located on 7 Mile Island and is a destination for second-home ownership. Its location places it roughly one mile further out to sea than its neighboring barrier island, which explains their slogan “Cooler By A Mile.”

Unexpected appeal:
Close proximity to other Jersey Shore beaches with a destination secluded feel.

The market:
Second-home buyer demand causes tremendous sales across the board.

As a beach town with a seasonal draw, Avalon’s market is heavily influenced by second-home owners and buyers. Buyers are drawn to the gorgeous waterfront properties, Cape Cod and Victorian style homes and large yards for entertaining. This market also features historic homes on the island, some of which were built in the mid 1800s.
