Really thinking about moving closer to the Jersey Shore but not ready to take the leap to one of our gorgeous barrier islands? Ocean Acres provides a valuable opportunity to be close enough to Long Beach Island to enjoy sunny beaches but also convenient for commuting to work. And most importantly--it is AFFORDABLE! 

Ocean Acres is a community that started in the 1960’s and is spread out between Stafford Township and Barnegat. Since then the community has grown to a population of 16,142 according the 2010 US Census. Nestled between the Garden State Parkway and Route 72, Ocean Acres is a commuter’s dream as you can head to New York City or Philadelphia and all areas in between. Route 72 has a bevy of stores and restaurants. Downtown Stafford and Barnegat offer antique stores, boutiques, arts & culture and so much more!

And check out these stats:
In 2013, from January to April, 37 homes sold at an average sales price of $224,035 and were on the market for an average of 134 days. They sold within 95% of their list price.
In 2014, from January to April, 48 homes sold at an average sales price of $241,787 (almost $20k more than last year!) and were on the market for an average of 48 days. (Can you say quick closing?!?) These homes sold within 98% of their list price.

Prices are still affordable but from these stats we can see home prices are on the rise. What are you waiting for? Whether you want a Four Bedroom Colonial, Three Bedroom Ranch, Pool, Fenced-In Yard--there is something here for everyone. The photo above shows a classic home that features 4 bedrooms, 21/2 baths with a gourmet kitchen. 

Spring is here and currently there are 95 homes for sale in Ocean Acres! Make one of these homes your shore getaway and spend your weekends on the gorgeous beaches of LBI.
