WEST POINT ISLAND - Nearly one year after Sandy, residents of West Point Island say they've seen a drastic shift in their community, especially in regard to selling homes.

Homeowners on West Point Island say the enclave was one of the most sought-after places to live in New Jersey at one point, with home values rising 20 percent annually.

Since Sandy, there's been a significant drop in home sales, with many people being unsure of moving to an island where most of the homes saw damage.

In the past months, residents say things have gotten quieter, with occasional residents returning to fix or raise their homes. Many credit town officials from Lavallette for helping the island rebuild.
