Use a Sea Isle City Realtor whenever possible to book your next summer rental

By
Real Estate Agent with The Landis Co., Realtors

This was a post from Jim Sofroney Broker/ Owner of The Landis Co., Realtors in Sea Isle City, NJ.The Landis Co., Realtors is the #1 Sea Isle City Vacation rental source with its award winning website www.LandisCo.com . Interesting how this has been happening for some time and its going to get worse. Renting from private sources has its disadvantages as well as its advantages.

 

Sea Isle City summer rentals 

 

Attention Summer Renters!   Here is another really good reason why renters should use a Realtor or real estate company when renting a summer vacation home.   One of the property owners whose home we rent told us that a woman called them to get the check in information for their summer rental in Sea Isle City that they rented for $4,500. a month or so ago.  The property owner knew nothing of the rental.  It seems that the "for rent by owner" rental website HomeAway.com, where the owner listed his home for rent was hacked into and it directed the customer to a 3rd party in Europe who after collecting the rent in full, disappeared with the customer’s money.  The woman naturally was out the $4,500 and had to rent another property, using a Realtor this time.  This is NOT an isolated incident! It is happening all over the internet.  Buyer beware and use a Realtor whenever possible.

 

As Jim Sofroney said, "Contact a Sea Isle City real estate professional and feel comfortable that the transaction is going to go smooth." For an easy to use webite go to www.LandisCo.com for all your real estate and rental needs.

Ian,

Great information.  Many people are getting scammed all over the country.

Many properties arent even rentals but primary homes and the tenants drive up and are totally shocked. The owners are as well !

This is happening all over as you write.

People need to be protected by an agent who will make sure the check is not in the mail to some country near the Czech Republic. 

Or Nigeria, etc etc. 

How is the summer rental market up there?

This year the Jersey Shore rental market is about 5-10% above last year. Inventory is tight. My rental properties that were sold this year were sold to 2nd home onwers and they arent renting them. Things are recovering ! Thanks for asking Erv !
