Since the borough founders allotted very little commercial space when they designed the town's layout in 1893, almost the entirety of its space is dedicated to residential property. Most homes are privately owned, as residents have withstood the urban crush of new building and subdivision living. If you're moving to Deal, you'll likely wind up with a highly unique property.
Waterfront real estate is prominently available in Deal, specifically along the Atlantic Ocean and in Deal Harbor. Whether you're looking for a traditional beach house, a Victorian on Main Street, or a sprawling ranch-style home in the heart of town, each and every location in Deal offers seaside charm.
Beyond the allure of the beaches, entertainment tends to ebb and flow with the seasons. During the summer, the Deal Casino and Conover Pavilion become the hub of town, as tourists and locals frequent the beaches for a little rest and relaxation.
