The lowest taxes will be in Somers Point, and there is a small beach area on the bay there. It is also the most affordably priced area out of the ones you are asking about. It is a nice quaint village setting. Linwood is a nice area, a bit higher in price, and closer to route 322 heading towards Atlantic City. Ocean City has some fair prices, depending on where the home is located in proximity to the ocean. The question I ask is what price range are you looking at? This will help to determine which area is best suited for you. All of these towns are very nice to live in.
I would be happy to email you homes that may interest you. Please call or email me anytime to discuss further. Take care,

You don't mention schools but both Somers Point and Linwood are good. Each has an elementary and middlle school of their own but both use the same High School- Mainland Regional. Of the two, Linwood schools are more desired. In either town you are just a short drive to Ocean City's 7 miles of beaches and beautiful Boardwalk. I would welcome the opportunity to help you find a home in any of these three towns!

In Somers Point, Linwood and Northfield you will pay the highest taxes because the school system has a very high rating. The lowest tax base will be in Ocean City and of course the beaches are right there. The best neighborhood is in Linwood in the gold coast area where the homes are well over $500k. I need to know more about what type of property you want to help you. Call me. I live in Somers Point and know the area well. Look forward to hearing from you.

There are lovely neighborhoods with reasonable taxes throughout Atlantic County. Are schools a concern for you? How close do you want to be to the beach and Ocean City? What size home are you looking for. Taxes are not only based on neighborhoods but also home size.
There are many affordable properties in Somers Point, Linwood and Ocean City. We have a beautiful 3 bedroom condo for sale on Groveland Avenue that is new construction. I'd be happy to send you more information about that property and can also send you other wonderful homes if you send me your email.
Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year!
