Asbury Park, New Jersey: Competitive House Prices

Many of the transplants who live here are big-city refugees who were drawn to the area in the 1990s, when a haggard Queen Anne cost less than $100,000. Steals like that are hard to find these days, but prices remain competitive, especially for a beach town only 60 miles from New York City. Yearning to soak up the salty air from your rocking-chair porch—or clam shack? Now's a good time to get in on this area's latest renaissance.
