You get an ocean or bay breeze almost every day, you're just a short car ride to your favorite beach town, and of course, there's always something fun to do!

Located in Cape May County, 24/7 Tempo reports the average home price is in the area of $256,500.

Again, I did a quick search on Zillow and couldn't find anything in that price range, so if you can, I'd hop on it.


Seaville is another Unincorporated community in Jersey, which may help with the home prices, but not by much.

24/7 Tempo claims that you can find a home for somewhere in the area of $396,200 and a few homes for sale are in that price range, so that's cool.
