Actually, Marine Park faired very well during Hurricane Sandy. Although there was a temporary loss of power, there was very little or no water/physical damage to peoples homes or the infrastructure. Marine Park is high enough above sea level and far enough away from the water that we thankfully were not greatly effected. As a matter of fact, there is probably higher demand for homes in Marine Park right now based on these facts! My office is located in Marine Park and I have personally been selling homes in the neighborhood since 1993.
In addition, even before the storm, demand for homes in Marine Park has been on the upswing because it is a great neighborhood with great schools and a strong sense of community. Plus homes in Marine Park are relatively affordable especially taking the benefits of living here into consideration. The neighborhood has had and continues to have very high demand.
In my opinion the prognosis for the Marine Park real estate market is very good and demand along with property values will continue to go up as we move forward in time. If I can be of further assistance, please contact me direct. Thank for the question!
