Ocean City, New Jersey is one of the most popular tourist towns on the East Coast of the United States. What was once a seven-mile long strip of sand dunes and swampland has now become the main tourist attraction of Cape May County. Offering access to miles and miles of fantastic beaches and tons of entertainment options for every age group, Ocean City real estate has become exceedingly popular amongst a diverse crowd of homebuyers in recent years.

The biggest draw for Ocean City homes for sale is, clearly, the beach. Residents and visitors can buy inexpensive daily, weekly, or seasonal passes for access to safe, well-groomed beaches. A good portion of Ocean City area real estate hosts second, summer, and vacation homes; however, many buyers decide to enjoy the city’s ocean access year round via permanent residence.

Ocean City’s most famous tourist attraction is its nationally recognized boardwalk. The boardwalk runs parallel to the beach for two and a half miles, and offers fun shopping and dining options to beach-goers. Many owners of Ocean City real estate particularly enjoy catching shows, exhibitions, and concerts at the Ocean City Music Pier. Additionally, Ocean City’s location, 25 minutes from Atlantic City and just over an hour from Philadelphia, makes the city an appealing place to live for those willing to explore out of town entertainment and career options.

Although Ocean City, NJ takes pride in creating a family-friendly atmosphere, Ocean City houses for sale tend to attract mostly singles, retirees, or married families without kids. The 2010 census showed that only about 14% of households in the area included children under 18. The city was named Best Family Beach in 2005 and has never allowed the sale of alcohol within its limits, factors that make the resort attractive to vacationing families. Permanent residents of Ocean City, however, consist of an older, more financially stable crowd, as well as younger singles looking to take advantage of the numerous service and entertainment jobs available.

Ocean City real estate gives you access to a fun, vacation-like culture, friendly neighbors, and lots of beach time. Young folks come here looking for an adventure, while older folks come looking to get away from the rigors of big-city living. Ocean City has it all, that’s why Prudential Fox & Roach offers real estate listings by city to help you find the home you’re looking for in a city you’ll love.
