Ocean City does not have a huge supply of year round rentals as most owners chose to take advantage of the lucrative weekly rentals of the summer months and then either do a winter rental or use the property for themselves in the "shoulder " seasons of the Spring and Fall. Those that were available and not damaged are predominately already rented in the $1,000 to $1200 range. Many by folks in the same situation as you are in. The time frame you offer as a target to rent would take you into the summer rental season. If I might make a suggestion, you should consider going further inland. You might have a better chance in Northfield, Linwood, Somers Point or egg Harbor Twp. Keep in mind most landlords shy away for short term leases and will only rent for a full year unless you have a specific agreement otherwise. Also, with the amount of damage done in our area, contractors are stretched to their limit and your unit may not be finished by that time. I suggest you go for the full 12 months to be on the safe side and not put yourself in the position to have to move again.

As I'm sure you know, condos are limited for long-term rentals. Can you give me more details of what you need; bedrooms, baths and what you can afford? this will help me to seek out what is available. I dont know how important it is for you to be in OC but the website does have long-term housing locations in the surrounding towns.

Happy New Year Kevin thank you for responding. I realize leaving OC to rent is probably the way we will have to go. I work at OCHS. I would prefer to stay in Cape May County, but would move to Somers Point. We are waiting to hear from FEMA for our continued assistance. They were willing to pay $1500. On our own no more than $1000 if possible. 2 bdrm 1 bath
