Hi,

Yours is a great question. In Avon-by-the-Sea, there are 4 different condo buildings along the oceanfront. 3 of them are former apartment buildings that were converted to condominiums. These buildings offer studios, 1 and 2 BR units. The majority of them offer balconies with ocean views. The studios start in the high $200's and the 2 BRs can trade in excess of $500K. On Garfield Avenue, there is a more recently constructed condo, however, this building does not offer any balconies.

Bradley Beach condos are more plentiful and typically trade for a lower $ per square foot value. Many of them provide balconies. The southern end of Bradley Beach is typically the preferred area in town, however, there are fewer condo offerings in this predominately single family section.

If I may be of any assistance to you in your search, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Regards,

Michael

Hi,

Yours is a great question. Avon is a terrific, sleepy town as you know. I rented 2 homes for clients in Avon each of the last 2 summers. The town is quite desirable.

Approximately 1/2 of the homes is town are occupied on a full time/year round basis. The balance are used as you proposed. Interestingly, however, even though the town is quite desirable, many fewer homes have been available for rental during the summer months in recent years. From what I have been able to discern, folks have decided to withhold renting their home preferring to use them throughout the summer for themselves.

If I may be of any assistance to you in your search, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Regards,

Michael
