Not quite on the same grand scale but we made an offer on a house In Ocean City NJ before we purchased our current one in Marmora, slightly more inland. We offered $300.000 and it was accepted but we declined for various reasons. The same house resold two years later for over $600,000. It is on the island but not close to the beach, but the mania for buying in Ocean City doubled the price. The house we bought here in Marmora has also appreciated quite a bit, but we are long term and love the house and the location.
