Commercial Real Estate Update on Long Beach Island New Jersey
The commercial real estate market in April 2014 showed the following trends:
- There are currently 49 active commercial listings for sale on Long Beach Island
- There is only 1 commercial listing under contract
- Over the past 6 months there have been 2 closed commercial real estate transactions on LBI
Of the 49 active listings, 5 are rental properties ranging in price from $1,300 to over $7,000 per month. The remainder of the active commercial real estate listings, all of which are sale properties, range from $195,000 to $3,400,000. It is not surprising to see a high number of commercial real estate listings on the market especially after a slower than normal summer 2013. Hurricane Sandy caused major damage to the Long Beach Island area and subsequently a slower rental season. As the rental market is a major base of business for the Long Beach Island economy, some businesses decided to sell after lower sales numbers. The good news is, the summer season is looking to be a very busy year on Long Beach Island. Rentals are up about 60%-70% over summer 2013 which will almost certainly lead to stronger sales numbers for the local businesses.
