Beach Haven West is a LBI Alternative

Beach Haven West offers some excellent advantages for those looking to purchase a vacation home:

  • Nearly every home in Beach Haven West is located on the waterfront with direct bay access
  • There are many new homes elevated above base flood elevation
  • The average price of a home in Beach Haven West is roughly 40% to 50% of Long Beach Island

Beach Haven West was developed in the 1950’s and 1960’s to be a waterfront community of homes. Nearly every home is on the water and has direct access to the bay. This is highly appealing to boaters who are looking for an affordable way to live at the Jersey Shore.

Hurricane Sandy caused widespread damage to Beach Haven West. Many of the original homes were built low to the ground and sustained flooding. This has paved the way for an unprecedented wave of new construction. These homes are built well above the new base flood elevation levels and are built to be more storm ready. These homes offer excellent amenities and can be ideal homes at the shore.

The average price of a home in Beach Haven West is substantially lower than that of a home on Long Beach Island. Each month, the average price of a single family home in Beach Haven West is about $400,000 whereas the average price on LBI is around $1,000,000.  This can offer a great chance to afford a quality built home in a great area without breaking the bank!
