|Summer '15... few takers?|
rent. If you're one of the many who've uttered those words you're not alone. I'm not sure if it was because of all of those short term rental sites or more folks are buying and building. I've heard both theories. What I do know... in the opinion of this humble agent was it was not as active as years past. But it wasn't just me. In fact, I meet monthly with a group of about 25 top agents from a cross section of all the real estate companies and regions. At our last get together someone raised the question, "who thought this was a good rental season?" Unfortunately not one person raised their hand. What I think this means is next year, look for an adjustment in some prices and landlords being a bit more accommodating in cutting a deal. If you found otherwise, feel free to let me know.
One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to hit the beach in the early evening with some friends and enjoy the sand, the fresh air and the surf... and I don't mean on your smartphone. You only have a few weeks left of Summer '15 so here's one way to make it special. But before you lug your blankets, food and friends Wiborg or Fowler, make sure your know the rules. Hello?! Like you didn't think there were rules.... it's the Hamptons, there are rules for everything.
|There better be a container under there!?|
As for a little Rose for that perfect summer beach dinner party, you'll need a permit if you're inviting over 50 people. Also, open containers of alcohol are prohibited across the board but you can get a special permit for catered events and parties. Pets are also allowed after 6pm at most beaches.
