Summer Rentals

There have been a few news pieces regarding the 2024 rental season at the Jersey Shore.

The most recent: https://www.inquirer.com/newsletters/shore/jersey-shore-rentals-boardwalk-20240711.html

A few thoughts: Owners with repeat tenants who kept their price increases to a minimum are experiencing a solid rental season.

Property owners new to the rental market (or those with weeks not rented by January or February) have felt the shift in our market the most.

Adding amenities (that are ironically considered the norm in most other vacation rental markets) such as sheets and towels, some paper products, beach tags, beach equipments, etc. definitely helps. Being open to allowing a pet (with references) is also a plus.

The Jersey Shore rental environment has been slow to evolve. Look how long it took for change over cleaning to be included in the rent!

Yet we have to keep up with tenant expectations, and provide good value, in order to be competitive with other high end travel destinations.

Parking Problems

During peak summer holidays, finding a parking spot on the island can be a challenge!

Unfortunately, tenants and owners who park on their yard beyond the designated driveway may be in for an unpleasant outcome.

Just because a home has a stone yard, it doesn’t mean it’s suitable for additional parking. Water and sewer lines run from the curb to the house just under the surface of the yard. The weight of a vehicle can damage these pipes, creating an expensive plumbing repair.

I noticed this truck on a yard over the weekend. Even when the street emptied out, the truck remained on the front yard!

Islandman Triathlon

Request from Midge Kerr:

We have quite a openings for volunteers on our bike course for the upcoming charity event, Islandman and Islandkids Triathlons in just two weeks on June 29th.

We need to keep the cyclist safe while they are riding their bikes and limit vehicle and pedestrian crossing in front of them until there is a gap and it is safe to allow them to cross.

Time commitment is from 7:15- 9:45am and your are assigned a street somewhere along Avalon Avenue and First Avenue. Volunteers get a tee shirt to wear during the event and custom Defeet event socks.

Bike Course Marshals can check in and get their race gear Friday from 5-7pm, inside Community Hall, 3001 Avalon Avenue. This way, race day Saturday, volunteers could go directly to their assigned streets and avoid all the athletes checking in at the hall. If that is not an option, volunteers can still come race day from 5:30-7am and check in at the volunteer table inside the hall.

Bike course coverage is critical to the safety and success of our event in our community. Marshals must be at least 18 years of age. There are specific streets that are open and listed on the sign up page. If you live near one of the open streets on the race course and would like to be assigned that street, please email midge@timkerrcharities.org your request. 

Thank you!

Walks Around the Island

Even though I live on the island, sell local real estate for a living, AND walk the blocks almost every day…it’s not unusual for me to say “What was there before?” when passing a newly cleared lot!

Thank goodness for Google Maps to help me visualize the “before” version of a particular spot.

Sunday morning views…

Picture perfect weather all weekend!

As an island native, I have a “lifetime of experience” on Seven Mile Beach. And I appreciate the opportunity to help with all aspects of your seashore real estate needs.
