Ocean County, NJ Real Estate Market

Ocean County homes for sale are found in many great New Jersey communities including waterfront neighborhoods such as Mantoloking, Bay Head and Point Pleasant Beach.

These housing markets have plenty to offer in terms of community parks and ways to enjoy living a healthy lifestyle. There are great places to hike and take your dogs, such as Ocean County Park, a 323-acre area in Lakewood Township.

Interestingly, the land was originally part of the property that was John D. Rockefeller's vacation estate. He imported all the White Pine, Hemlock and other unique species from all over the country. This park also has tennis courts, open playing fields, beach volleyball and a driving range. In the summer, the large, clean swimming lake provides a perfect oasis to cool off from the heat. And in the winter, it's a great place to cross country ski.

Homeowners living in Ocean County have relatively easy access to one of America's best amusement parks at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, which is only a 30 minute drive from the coast on I-195. Six Flags is a great place for a weekend outing for some fun.

Ocean County stretches from Lakewood and Point Pleasant Beach in the north, all the way down to Beach Haven and Tuckerton in the south. Within the county, buyers can discover a number of different home styles and types, at a range of price points.
