Around the Towns
Both towns have experienced beach erosion in early February from Winter Storm “Orlena” but Mantoloking’s beaches appear to be faring better. We have two aerial videos showing the beaches, one covering 9,000 feet of beach in Bay Head and Mantoloking (February 4th), and another covering 3,000 feet of beach surrounding Mount Street, filmed on February 17th. They both have audio/narration, so you should unmute or turn up your volume. You can see them here.
Bay Head Mayor Bill Curtis has been talking with and meeting with the DEP, Army Corps, and legislators to see what can be done for Bay Head beaches – here is his latest update.
In Mantoloking, the town recently launched a new website. Mantoloking’s first website was launched in 1999, this website is the fourth revision.
Other than the typical monthly town meetings, there are currently no scheduled in person events that we are aware of. Most events remain virtual including church services, and more.
Most remain online – the best source of information right now is the town websites – check for frequent updates and changes. Bay Head and Mantoloking both offer “dial-in” options for the public to attend their meetings. Note that Mantoloking has started to use Zoom for some meetings – the connection details will be posted when the meeting notices are.

Bay Head | Mantoloking
As mentioned elsewhere in this email, the inventory in Bay Head and Mantoloking remains low, and demand and prices are high. Currently, there are only 8 homes for sale in the two towns combined. If you (or someone you know) is thinking about selling, now could be a good time. We would be happy to talk, on the phone, via Zoom, or in person, and provide a comparative market analysis for you. Just reply to this email, or click here.
Currently in Bay Head, there are 5 properties under contract, and there has been one closing (our listing at 416 East Avenue) in the last 30 days.
In Mantoloking, there 6 properties under contract, and there have been two closings in the last 30 days.
Further details and discussion can be found in our February Market Update.
If you have questions about your own property, or know someone (near or far), who is talking about moving, please keep us in mind. If the contemplated move is outside of the areas we serve, we can happily provide a referral to a well qualified agent just about anywhere.
