Buying a vacation home at the Jersey shore may seem out of reach for most people. Typical beach homes range in the $400,000 range and up. However it is possible to purchase something much less and and actually keep the price under $200,000. Here are 3 ways to purchase a NJ shore beach home for less than $200,000.
Choose a location further from the beach.
Many of our shore town have areas that are further from the beach. These sections typically have more year round residents and more affordable prices. For example, I recently listed this ranch home in Ventnor Heights that was raised and renovated and is currently priced at $190,000. Click here for details on the house.
Choose An Up And Coming Area
Not all shore towns are priced the same and if you’re looking to spend less choose an up and coming area like Atlantic City. Prices for many homes and condos are under $200,000. There are some great locations in Atlantic City and some not so great locations. Choose a local agent who can help you find the right location and home.
Look For A Home Off Shore
If you’re willing to take a short drive you can get more house for the money off shore. Communities like Somers Point are just a 5 minute drive into Ocean City. Absecon is just 5 minutes from Atlantic City and 10 minutes to Brigantine. And if you’re will to drive a little further communities like Egg Harbor Township, Linwood, Northfield and Galloway are within a 20 minute drive to the beaches.

- Talk with agents’ recent clients. Ask for a list of past clients and references from the agent your considering. Check for online testimonials and reviews.
- Check for license and disciplinary actions. You can look up agent’s NJ license numbers here: https://www20.state.nj.us/DOBI_LicSearch/recSearch.jsp
- Ask about professional awards. NJ agents receive the Circle Of Excellence Award. If the agent hasn’t earned this award in the past year they are most likely not a full time agent and have not done an exceptional volume of business. My dad and I have consistently earned this award. Last year we earned the silver and bronze awards.
- Select the right broker. The company does matter. Keller Williams Realty is the #1 selling broker in Egg Harbor Township, NJ with 263 units sold last year.
- Find out how experienced an agent is. Ask for the number of transactions the agent has had over the past year. Combined The Haviland Group had 67+ transitions sides and over $12 million in sales volume in 2018.
- Look at the agent’s current listings and sold listings. Does the agent have listings for sale in Egg Harbor Township and how many sold in the last year? Last year we sold 14 homes in Egg Harbor Township.
- Gauge the agent’s knowledge of the area. Egg Harbor Township is a unique location. It’s a large township with everything from waterfront homes, farm properties, developments, 55 and over communities and golf course properties. Each section of the township is different and you need an agent that understands this.
