Average Sale Price per Linear Foot of Ocean Frontage Sets a Record High in 2009! For property on the ocean, the calculated value per linear foot of frontage shows that values have increased on oceanfront properties from 2004 to present based on sales. The average sale prices each year are $2,109,178 in 2004, $2,428,210 in 2005, $2,518,418 in 2006, $2,149.017 in 2007, $2,472,863 for 2008, and $2,582,281 for the first half of 2009. It might appear that oceanfront home prices have slowly increased over the last five years. However, these values are not based on sales of comparable oceanfront properties. For instance, in 2006 many oceanfront homes that sold were new construction. In 2007, the majority of oceanfront properties that sold were teardowns, creating a decline in values. The value of the improvement on an oceanfront property will be reflected in the sale price. New construction holds a high value as opposed to a tear down which holds zero value. In 2008, the sale of oceanfront property in North Beach, Loveladies, and on oversized lots in Barnegat Light increased the average values for two reasons. The majority of homes were newly constructed and the north end location also holds the highest land values on LBI. These sales created a higher than average sale price for oceanfronts than expected in 2008. In this first half of 2009, Surf City is breaking the curve for oceanfronts in the center of the Island (no single family sales in Ship Bottom and Brant Beach), and only one sale in the exclusive Dunes section of the Township for the South end. All other sales were on the North end of LBI. All seven sales this half were in the location that brings in the highest values. With only seven oceanfront sales thus far in 2009, it is hard to see what values are really doing. When including duplexes these values drop tremendously. In Brant Beach, a duplex with 75 feet on the oceanfront sold for $1,200,000. The single-family oceanfront value for the average 75’ on the ocean on LBI would calculate out to be $2,678,714 for this half (an average of $35,714 per linear oceanfront foot)! This is more than double for a single-family average! Since I began this study in 1992, duplexes have always brought in lower figures, and for that reason, I have always excluded oceanfront duplexes in my analysis. Duplexes seem to be slowly disappearing and being replaced with new single family homes. In general, the values in most LBI towns are down around 15% for ocean front property since the 2004-2005 peak. Surf City, however, continues to demand the best prices and this town is helping raise oceanfront statistics for the entire island. The current ocean frontage average is 72.30 feet including all oceanfront sales from 1992. This half was a low of 64 feet on average. Our graph shows us these new values and how they have stabilized over the last five years. It also shows us the values without calculating the per foot value.

Average Sale Prices for Bay Front Properties Decrease For property on the bay, values have increased from an average sale price of $1,575,763 in 2004 to a record high of $2,413,619 in 2005, then slid back down to $1,718,470 in 2006 and back up slightly to $1,986,017 in 2007, down to $1,971,347 for 2008 and slid downward again this half to $1,722,000. This average decline appears to be fairly accurate when averaging the high of 2004 and 2005 against this years average. Prices are down about 29% from the peak of 2005, but down 14% when averaging the 2004 and 2005 together. I feel values are down about 20% for bay front properties since the climax a few years ago.

SUPPLY VS. DEMAND CURVE DROPS The supply to demand ratios of .12 on oceanfront homes and .10 on bayfront homes is a large decrease from last year. This is comparable to the ratios back in 1992 thru 1994, when prices were fairly stable but took a long time before greatly appreciating. This is a substantial decrease in general and has proven sales have slowed down these last few years. Currently, there are 60 oceanfront and 49 bayfront single-family homes available for sale on LBI. Our record low of 15 oceanfronts on the market was back in 2002. Our high was 101 oceanfront homes available in 1993. The number of buyers has decreased from a high of 50 in 1999 to 23 for 2007 and 21 for 2008 and just 7 for the first half of 2009. With this small amount of buyers and the number of waterfront properties available for sale consistently increasing, it appears that prices may continue to decrease. The most desirable and competitively priced waterfront homes will sell. Those that are overpriced will not.

21 YEARS OF WATERFRONT DATA ANALYSIS AND CONCLUSION In 1987, the sales market had peaked on LBI. Approximately six years later, I was selling oceanfront homes for approximately 25% less than the 1987 climatic sales market. Properties began appreciating slowly from 1992 to 1998. In that 7 year time period, the average oceanfront home increased a total of 24%. Over the next seven years (1999-2005), they increased another 312%! We are now experiencing four years of a depreciating LBI home sales market. Currently, I feel we are at a 15-20% depreciation from the 2004-2005 peak for waterfront properties and 25-30% for bayside homes. Most Buyers are more likely to purchase a property if the Seller is asking a fair price reflective of today’s market value. Most buyers are excited that they are able to afford a vacation home on LBI! With attractive mortgage interest rates and reduced asking prices, along with a variety of properties to choose from, it’s a great time to buy or sell on LBI!
