Mar-Sept best months I think. I am not a fan of open houses but if you need leads then yes do them. Market is slow but sales are present, and everything boils down to price. There are cash buyers out there as well as investor purchases and look for deals with a positive cash flow for investments. Seaside Park is always a more desirable area but Seaside Heights has the history for demand on seasonal rentals. There is also a call for winter rentals in the area as well, so it all boils down to price and what the property has to offer......if you need a referral Agent I can offer 30%......

Hi Donna! Can't comment specifically on Seaside Heights or Seaside Park, but more generally, do agree that selling when the maximum number of beachcombers are present - and as in any market, price smartly.

The first answer by Michelle is excellent . Regarding the open house possibilities, I have had success on Barrier Island with impromptu open houses when it is raining. A lot of the tourists are looking for something to do when the weather gets bad and I have sold more than one using this tactic. Best of luck to you.
