Tom Brady had it exactly right . I am an agent who specializes in Valley Stream sales and rentals .
Since Hurricane Sandy , I have worked directly with displaced families and also Insurance companies who searching for temporary housing not only in Valley Stream but all along the South Shore of Brooklyn , Far Rockaway and points east . But there is hope for the future , as these displaced families return to their homes the supply of rentals shoudl increase , especially around spring time when most homes not completely destroyed will have been repaired
Apart from my previous answer about the effect of the hurricane , rentals in the Valley Stream area tend to be few and far between because most homes in the area are one family homes .
What should you do ? call different agents , get the name of an agent to work with and CALL BACK\
Rentals come in and go out VERY QUICKLY and if you dont call the agent most of the time we assume that the renter has found something
