Lagoonfront Real Estate on Long Beach Island

 

A home on a Long Beach Island lagoon can offer the perfect compromise for a boater or someone looking to enjoy a waterfront lifestyle. Typically, most lagoon front homes are more affordable than their oceanfront or bayfront counterparts which opens their market to more buyers. Many lagoon front homes even offer a nice view of the bay if they are located towards the end of a lagoon!

Lagoon Front Homes on Long Beach Island

Lagoonfront homes on LBI are only located in a few areas of LBI, mainly High Bar Harbor, The Dunes, Loveladies and parts of Harvey Cedars and Beach Haven. These homes are located on individual waterways called lagoons or canals. They offer direct access to the bay but usually lack unobstructed views of the bay. These homes will generally trade at a lower price which can make them an attractive alternative for boaters.

The market for lagoon front homes on Long Beach Island is unique among other waterfront homes. Sales of single family homes will vary greatly depending on the presence or absence of a view, the condition of the house and the location on the actual lagoon. Below are some sales of recent Lagoonfront homes in the Long Beach Island real estate market.

Bulkheads on LBI Lagoon Homes

The biggest concern for a lagoon front homeowner is the bulkhead. A bulkhead is a solid "wall" that separates the land from the water. There are three common forms of material used to construct bulkheads. They are:

  • Creosote
  • Pressure Treated
  • Vinyl

While no longer in use, creosote bulkheads are the oldest and the most prone to failure. Creosote is a dark, tar-like substance that was used to make wood water resistant. Overtime, it breaks down and can lead to rot and failure of a bulkhead. If you are looking to buy a Lagoonfront or bayfront home with a creosote bulkhead, it is important to check the integrity of the wood and plan for future replacement.

Pressure treated has been used for some time now and is generally accepted to be a quality material. Pressure treated lumber involves chemically treated the lumber to make it more durable in a waterfront environment.

Vinyl is the best...and the most expensive! Vinyl bulkheads add a great deal of value to a home and can withstand the waterfront environment indefinably.
