If you have $50,000 you can, if you want to borrow it – not so much.

If you can get past the absurdity of two opposing groups living in “God’s Square Mile at the Jersey Shore”, seemingly annual fires that take two blocks of homes at a clip, a group of realtors that would sell their own mother’s into slavery for dime, and a right wing neo-Christian organization (Ocean Grove Camp Association) financially dependent on monies raised by charging homeowners a land use fee, a fair share of whom are the very people they profess to hate; it is a wonderful place to live.
