To further address your question of erosion at the north end..Noreasters beat the north end beach up each winter....from 14th St north down to about 8th St north.
Until they built the seawall some 10-15 years ago, it used to create flooding issues, which have since been corrected. The beach by the seawall usually has fresh sand pumped in every 4 or 5 years. It is currently being replenished right now.

Brigantine has greenhead flies...just like every other barrier island at the Jersey shore. Brigantine also has 3 miles of undeveloped island at the North end, which is where the flies breed. So when the greenheads are breeding (twice each summer) there's a week long period where the females are looking for a blood meal. If the wind dies down, the flies venture from the marshes and they become a problem at the north end, more than anywhere else on the island. So to answer your question, yes there is a difference between the severity at the north end and the rest of the island. Is it a reason not to buy a property...I would say no...especially if the deal is sweet.
