The two home sales in Holgate during the first quarter were located at 4 West Jeffrey Ave. and 4405 S.

In this case, the homeowner ran into financial difficulty and had to call the bank, which is extremely uncommon on Long Beach Island.

Long Beach Island Real Estate and Holgate Single Family Home Sales
The real estate market in Holgate, showed interesting activity which correlates with the greater Long Beach Island real estate market. Certain areas of the LBI real estate market have witnessed weaker quarters in 2016 when compared to 2015 however most of this I attributed to a dismal start to the stock market in January 2016. In the economy has recovered, so too home sales have improved. Overall, the first quarter of 2016 stacked up well to the first quarter of 2015 and I believe the year will be positive!
