Here are 7 Jersey Shore rentals you can get for $3,000 a week or less
Jersey Shore rentals have been a hot commodity since the coronavirus pandemic began. And this season is not much different.
Prices are up and there have been a lot of early bookings. But the middle months of May, June, September and October weren’t as in demand now that more workers are back in their offices and many children are taking in-person learning.
If you’re still looking for a place to rent this summer, agents advise you to be flexible with your dates and keep checking, as new properties are always being added.
“I’m seeing a lot of last-minute bookings this year,” said Duane Watlington of Vacation Rentals Jersey Shore LLC founder. “People book like 30 days. And I’ve signed a record number of new listings – many are new people who have just purchased their Shore home and have never rented before.
NJ Advance Media searched for homes at or near $3,000 for weekly rental at various Shore Points. That price is a “tight” budget, according to Robert White of Coldwell Banker Realty in Spring Lake.
“At $3,000, you’re not going to be on shore. You’re going to be inland,” he said. “Typically a summer rental from Long Branch to LBI for $3,000 a week, you’re probably seven blocks or more from the ocean and you might have a little bungalow, a shed, or you might find a apartment.”
An average budget would be $5,000 to $6,000 for the month of June, and in July and August it would increase to $7,500, he said.
