Margate is on of my favorite South Jersey Shore beach towns. I prefer the Ventnor/Margate beaches in the summer because they are not as crowded as Ocean City. Margate has more year round residents than some of the other shore tows. Margate is also home to my favorite summer eatery the Margate Dairy & Burger Bar. So lets take a look at the real estate market for Margate.
