A Pause…

After a busy summer (that still continues!) it’s time for a brief break.

I will be back in the office on October 15th (yet still connected via email as needed).

Vacation Mode

My summer experience is understandably different from those who are here seasonally.  My busiest work days coincide with our visitor’s vacation days.

Yet I will always appreciate how fortunate we are to live/work here year round.

Friday afternoon, we were able to take a long walk -with the Windrift as the destination!  Reggae music in the background, the Golf Channel on the bar TV,  a nice breeze, and an awesome view = a mini-vacation for a few hours 😎

Fall update

A bit chilly today!  Fall has arrived, yet we know “summer” will visit several times through to October.

Vacationers and property owners are enjoying the extended season, but the island is definitely less hectic.

The sale market continues at an incredible pace.  In Avalon and Stone Harbor, there are a record 144 properties sale pending with settlements scheduled in the coming weeks/months.  That’s a huge turn over of shore homes.

Several of our rental property owners have decided to keep their homes for family use in 2021.  With the uncertainty of the coming year, time spent in their beach house is a priority.

Likewise, potential tenants are motivated to secure their vacation rentals for next summer; with many requesting multiple weeks.

We hope the reduction of rental inventory will not be an overall trend for 2021, especially with the high demand.

2021 Rentals

RentSignIt’s Labor Day weekend, and that means time to plan ahead for summer of 2021!

Tenants (both repeat and new) are waiting for confirmation of their preferred rental dates.

The increased level of interest for next summer is logical under the circumstances.  Families know that a shore vacation provides the needed break in an environment that feels safe.

We mailed our 2021 Rental Listing Agreements out last week, and I am looking forward to talking with property owners in preparation of another busy season.

If you are an Avalon or Stone Harbor homeowner thinking about offering your property for rent, I’m here to help.

Making Plans?

After a hectic summer, it’s normal for the local business people to discuss their plans for a well deserved break.

Yet this Labor Day weekend is different.

Our season has been extended at least through September (which is good), so time off will have to wait.

And then, where do we go?

Far away travel destinations are not practical…or even permitted.

Maybe a “staycation” for 2020?  Obviously not a hardship when you live near the beach ;)

Labor Day Weekend Updates

The annual TK Charities foot race is a Labor Day weekend tradition.  Every year, we read the names of the generous sponsors on the signs that pop up along Dune Drive, and then cheer on close to 1000 runners as they take over the local streets!

Unfortunately, the event was cancelled for 2020.

Starting this Friday, indoor dining will be permitted with capacity limitations and specific ventilation requirements.  If a restaurant is unable to work within the guidelines, they will continue with take-out and/or outdoor options.

After Monday, beach tags are no longer required, and there will be plenty of room to social distance!
