Catching a wave…in December? Yes, dedicated surfers can be seen riding waves even on cold, gray days during the winter months! Wetsuits and gloves help block the cold, but it still looks chilly!
CHRISTMAS TREES ON THE BEACH are taking root! Avalon’s beach tree is back again this year on the 30th Street beach–and even made TV new in Philadelphia! NBC10 ran a story on beach trees in Sea Isle, Ocean City, and Avalon. Check it out here: https://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/entertainment/holidays/christmas-trees-on-the-beach-spread-holiday-joy/3065222/?fbclid=IwAR0f8r-AmY_p8mwMsbx42Ra2IF8wwZgKwy0vKayVGukx-BNSyENhPj2SgIo
Avalon’s beach Christmas tree was decorated by visitors throughout the month of December; stop by the 30th Street beach this month to add an ornament to this year’s beach tree!
CONFORMING LOAN LIMIT RAISED: Rising real estate prices have led to an increase in the Fannie Mae conforming loan limit. Mike Mento of Prosperity Mortgage stated “the new conventional loan limit of $647,200 is effective immediately.” Loans over that amount are considered jumbo loans, and are often subject to different interest rates and requirements, while conforming loans written to Fannie Mae standards facilitate underwriting, and help ensure a vibrant mortgage market.
WHILE OTHERS ARE FOCUSED ON THE HOLIDAYS, now is a great time to get a head start on traditional “spring” projects for your rental property. Place a quick call to a contractor, schedule a carpet cleaning or painter, or order that new piece of furniture now. It’ll get you into the que earlier and help beat the spring rush!
ANOTHER WAY TO BEAT THE SPRING RUSH: Begin your search for the perfect shore home now! Whether you need a week at the beach, or a permanent place to call your own, let’s talk! Either way, the family memories are priceless! Call or email me anytime!
FIREWORKS ON THE BEACH have always been fun–and this year, you can ring in the New Year with fireworks in Avalon on New Year’s Eve! Details on the location & time will be announced shortly–stay tuned!
