WE COVER THE BEACH!
Listen for our radio ads
on KYW Radio in the Philadelphia area, promoting our selection of sale and
rental properties in Avalon & Stone Harbor. It's one more way Long & Foster
provides the broadest possible exposure for our sale and rental listing
clients! The radio ads will air for the next few weeks.
WE HAVE ACTIVE BUYERS
for the following
1) Newer side by side townhouse between 32nd & 35th Streets with a garage.
2) Newer Stone Harbor beachblock with at least 4 bedrooms and nice views.
3) North-end beachfront, preferably an oversized lot.
If you or anyone you know is considering selling any of the above, lets
Stone Harbor's beachfill
project has been expanded to include the entire beachfront. The project
began in April but was delayed by weather; during the delay Stone Harbor
officials were able to negotiate a new agreement to include the entire
beach. The dredging company will pump sand until the beginning of June, then
move to North Wildwood to complete a previously scheduled project there.
Upon completion, the dredge will return to Stone Harbor to fill the
remainder of the beach. During the project Stone Harbor's beaches will
remain open, except for a 1 or 2 block area in the immediate vicinity of the
operation. The large, new beach will provide excellent protection for the
borough, and it will be enjoyed recreationally by many.
GET THEM READY!
The three-day holiday weekend
is a great opportunity for rental property owners to put the finishing
touches on their homes for the upcoming rental season. Make your property
shine! Whether it's a spring cleaning, a fresh coat of paint, or new
appliances, it's time to get those projects completed in advance of your
summer tenant's arrival!
have inched up, with the
average 30-year fixed rate mortgage just over 3.5%. That's still incredibly
low by historical standards, and whether you're refinancing or purchasing a
home it's a great time to "lock in" your financing costs for the next three
decades! For the names of reliable mortgage lenders (or to begin your search
for the perfect shore home!) please call or email me.
CATCH THE PARADES
on Monday! Relax and
celebrate our veterans at the same time! Avalon and Stone Harbor will both
hold traditional Memorial Day parades on Monday. Catch some floats, music,
marching veterans, fire trucks, and more! In Avalon, the parade will begin
at 9am at 32nd Street and proceed north along Dune Drive to Veteran's Plaza,
where a ceremony will follow the parade. In Stone Harbor, the parade will
begin at 12 noon and will proceed along 96th Street toward the beach, where
a ceremony will follow.
GOING, GOING, GONE!
The former Bank of America
building at the corner of 96th Street & Second Avenue has been demolished,
changing the look of the intersection. Eventually the new library will be
built on the site. See the photos below!
At this time each year
diamondback terrapin turtles begin crawling across local roads as they seek
high ground on which to lay their eggs. While many of the local roadways
have "turtle fences" installed to prevent turtle fatalities, turtles are
still seen crossing from time to time. If you see a turtle crossing, be sure
to "give 'em a brake!" If you should stop to help the turtle across
the road, please be sure to do so safely and not put yourself in jeopardy!
A TWENTY YEAR OLD
red knot has returned to the
shores of Delaware Bay again, having been spotted by researchers. The red
knot, known by his followers as "B95" for the number that appears on the
band around his leg, travels an estimated 10,000 miles yearly from South
America to the Canadian Arctic to breed. Each year spotters hope for his
return to the area, and they were not disappointed when he arrived again
last Friday. Hope the little fellow makes it again next year!
DINE BY THE BAY!
Enjoy a meal at The Marina at
Avalon Anchorage while you watch the boats go by! This summer they'll be
serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week, and dinners Friday through
Sunday. Open air, bayside dining at Avalon Anchorage (located at 21st Street
and the bay) is enjoyable for the whole family - put it on your summer "to
