|If nobody wants them can we put them on Petfinder.com?|
So, we are coming down to the wire for the summer rental season. In spite of the snow this week, Memorial Day is still coming. So in addition to my warnings for all potential renters about the danger of becoming Earhardt's (HC 6/6/11).... and making sure to use a camera or I Phone to record the condition of their house... I have a few more items they may want to double check before signing on the dotted line and sending that wire transfer! So, why revisit this topic? Because everyone is a critic. So after reading a few, "You forgot to mention, this, this and this." So being the professional whiner listen to-er I am, I decided to mention a few more. Here are some of the top summer rental disasters than can easily be avoided! And if the peanut gallery isn't happy, go write your own blog! (insert a mental happy face emoticon here!)

sure you go online to the agency that's renting your home and check the information they have on their website. While I can't say how it works at other companies, at Elliman.com, it's as easy as writing your address on the search bar. It's also not a bad idea to make sure the heat is functioning for those early and late summer nights. Come to think of it.. you may have rented house with a heated pool but it's not such a bad idea to make sure there is an actual heater. Sorry but coffee warmers do not constitute a pool heater.

*obscure 80's reference, if you get it let me know and I'll owe you one! No googleing!
4) "Dah Plane Boss Dah Plane" - Yes, we know you come to the Hamptons for peace and quiet but we also have highways here and airports... and a train too! Here's two simple words I can tell everyone "Google Earth." Yep, check the address out and look at the aerials. If you're near an airport or a train or a highway, you know you're going to hear things. But remember, it's not Queens so it's probably not going to be as bad as you think but it doesn't hurt to be forewarned.
Now, hopefully this is my last dire warning rental blogs. I'm starting to feel like Chicken Little!
