Until recently, there was a severe limit to the amount of improvement possible for homes situated below the required elevation. In the past, such homes could only be improved 40% of their market or assessed value every 10 years.
Here’s a hypothetical example:
Let’s say John Doe owns a home in Ventnor that does not meet the required elevation. He wants to renovate his kitchen and bathrooms. His home is assessed at $450,000.
In the past, Mr. Doe could spend no more than $180,000 (40% of his home’s value) on renovations every 10 years. This put our hypothetical homeowner in a pickle – if he renovated his kitchen, he would have to press pause on the bathroom project until 2027. If he wanted to tackle both projects in this decade, he would have to tear down his entire home and build a new construction.
Effective October of 2016, The Board of Commissioners AMENDED the previous ordinance. Now, Ventnor homes can be improved 50% of the market or assessed value EVERY YEAR!
Now, homeowners can take on major renovation projects without tearing down their residence.
Now, your Ventnor home is worth more!
And now, John Doe can renovate his kitchen AND his bathroom – no tear down necessary!
The Mark Arbeit And Co team thanks Mayor Holtzman, Commissioner Landgraf and Commissioner Kriebel for helping preserve our beautiful Ventnor homes!

May is truly a transitional month. It’s between the unpredictable spring weather and the summer months ahead. You’ll want to get your outdoor spaces looking good now to make them both relaxing and party-ready for the warm weather approaching.
Work on curb appeal: Place flowers in planters on your front porch for a welcoming look.
Fertilize your lawn: Check for bare spots or damaged grass. Make sure you use the correct amount of fertilizer and don’t forget to water.
Check for termites: Take a look at your home’s exterior wood and inspect for any swarms of winged insects. If spotted, it’s best to call a professional pest control company to treat the area.
Reseal exterior woodwork: Extend the life of decks, fences, railings and other outdoor wooden structures by resealing them every year or two.
Prevent mosquitos: Get rid of any standing water to keep mosquitos at a minimum.
Inspect the roof: Visually inspect your roof using binoculars or a camera rather than climbing up onto the roof. If anything looks like it needs repair, call a roofer.
Check outdoor lighting: Clean dirt and insects that have accumulated on lights over the winter. Additionally, replace bulbs if necessary so that they’ll be ready to show off your beautiful yard.
If you’re planning to sell your home this spring, you’ll want it to look its best. Talk to your real estate agent about any other improvements they may have to make your home as attractive as possible to potential buyers. And if you need a recommendation for any service, Mark Arbeit And Co can steer you in the right direction!

Situated on the Intercoastal Waterway in the prestigious St. Leonard’s Tract section of Ventnor, this sprawling waterfront estate includes an immaculate Nantucket-style home and a separate three bedroom two bathroom guest house.
Built in 2005, the main house was constructed using the finest materials and custom finishes.
The lower level is perfect for entertaining, with Vermont slate watermark floors, a custom gas fire pit, and large wet bar. Multiple sliding glass doors open to create a seamless transition to the enormous waterfront deck and in-ground pool overlooking the bay.
Take the elevator upstairs, where the main level boasts solid Santos mahogany wood floors, complete with radiant heat. The open floor plan centers around a gorgeous custom suspended staircase on blind steel hangers, providing lots of natural light throughout the home. The spacious living room features coffered ceilings and a custom hand carved Italian marble fireplace. The eat-in kitchen has granite countertops, solid cherry wood cabinets and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, including Wolf Range and Subzero 48” wide refrigerator. There is also a dining area with bar and window seat, a solarium with water views, and a deck overlooking the bay.
On the third floor, the sunny master bedroom includes a wood burning gas lit fireplace, a sitting area, a large walk-in closet, two private decks and a private bathroom with steam bath. There are two additional bedrooms on this floor. Each bedroom includes its own private deck, large closet and en suite bathroom with Whirlpool tub and custom cherry wood cabinets.
