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.
