The LBI real estate market has continued to improve since the impact of Hurricane Sandy. New construction has been taking place all over Long Beach Island and the improvements made to the area have helped to increase property values while at the same time making LBI a more storm ready and secure community.  Ship Bottom Real Estate Sales in the First Quarter of 2015 showed impressive activity, but a lower average sales price when compared to the greater Long Beach Island real estate market.

Long Beach Island Real Estate and the Ship Bottom Real Estate Market

Ship Bottom typically see a lower than average sales price when compared to the rest of the LBI real estate market. This has to do with several factors, the most prominent of which has to do with the large Bayside areas and the shorter ocean block in Ship Bottom. Properties on the Bayside areas typically sell for a lower price when compared to their Oceanside and ocean block counterparts. Ship Bottom has between three and four blocks of Bayside homes compared to only one block of Oceanside homes. The deviation between the ocean block and Bayside properties helps to create a lower sales price. A very interesting trend we witnessed in Ship Bottom during the first quarter was a very low average negotiation between the listing price and sales price of a home. With homes selling for 97.35% on average of their listing price, it appears that buyer confidence is increasing in Ship Bottom.
