AVALON’S FLOOD INSURANCE MITIGATION meeting will take place Saturday, August 21st, at 9am at Borough Hall. Property owners should bring their elevation certificate, flood insurance declaration page, and two photos of the exterior of their home to have them reviewed by professionals. Avalon property owners currently enjoy a 35% discount on their flood insurance premiums borough-wide thanks to flood mitigation efforts by the borough. Having your specific property reviewed might reveal ways to further lower your own flood insurance premiums.

The Beach Patrol reminds everyone to swim only when lifeguards are on duty.

INTEREST RATES HOLDING; PURCHASE DEMAND CONTINUES: While interest rates have fluctuated a bit recently, they remain at or below 3% for various types of mortgage loans. That continues to spur purchase demand, which has remained strong. The pace of new listings has increased slightly in recent weeks, though overall inventory remains tight. Whatever your real estate goals are, let’s talk and formulate a plan to achieve them!
