New Jersey beaches have received much praise this year—Keansburg, N.J., is the latest town to be honored.

REALTOR Magazine—the official magazine of the National Association of Realtors—recently released their “Cheapest Beach Towns in America, list and placed Keansburg as No. 8, with a median list price for beachfront property of $140,000. The magazine looked at areas with a population of at least 1,000 to come up with their top 10 list.

 “We take pride in being an affordable beach town—with all the beauty and appeal of some of the larger resort towns—and we’re thrilled to be recognized REALTOR Magazine,” says Keansburg Mayor George Hoff.

The square-mile, coastal town boasts affordable real estate opportunities for young couples, families and first-time home owners alike.

“Keansburg offers a serene, safe, affordable and appealing lifestyle to its residents,” says Councilman Arthur Boden. “We are open for new business as well as pleasure, and we welcome people to enjoy Keansburg and see for themselves that we are a borough on the rise.”
