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.
