News From Fire Island

Welcome to Fire Island Homes.  2013 looks to be a unique year for us, after coming off 3 excellent summers, it looks as though there may be a shortage of rentals this year as we are recovering from Hurrican Sandy and people displaced by the damage at the Jersey Shore are looking for another place to spend their summers.  Although no one looks forward to a hurricane, the storm came at the best time possible allowing us to put the island back in the shape you are accustomed to for your summer vacations.  All will be well when you return as all businesses are putting things back together and looking forward to you coming back, the beaches are actually much larger than normal because of the displacement of the the sand from the dunes and all communities are working hard to get the dune structure back in order.  The sale of properties has been brisk so far this year and now may be the best time in years to purchare your vacation home on Fire Island.  As to rentals, January and February are most common for those looking at seasonal rentals, March and April are known for monthly rentals, and from April on the time is best for weekly rentals.  Allow our professional staff to show you around and help you find the home that is perfect for you
