If you are a landlord and would like to get an incredible response for your rental property, advertise your property on this website and wait for the calls and Emails to come in.
It now averages over 1,000 hits a day during the prime rental months (January -August). I get about 10 E-mails a day from potential renters, and about 5 phone calls.
My properties get totally booked up from May thru September and most years all my properties are rented for the winter! Besides getting your own inquires, once I get my properties booked up I refer any phone call or E-mail I get from a potential renter to my advertisers.
For $149 per year, I can give you your own page on my site with 3 pictures that you supply. Each additional unit is only $99. I can even take the pictures for you with a digital camera for an extra $25 depending on where your property is located. You can also get an optional second page with up to 8 more pictures for an additional $49. If you are interested in putting your property on this site, call Mike at 732-599-6379, or click here and fill out our advertising form. Also, feel free to contact the current advertisers on this site to see the incredible response that they have gotten from my site.
One thing I wanted to mention about the price. I am not trying to make money off of this website. The reason I am doing this is because I am a real estate agent in the area and I am trying to grow my business by making contacts with area landlords. With all the expenses associated with this website ( domain registration, web hosting services, website software, search engine placement software etc.) I just about cover my expenses with what I charge advertisers. And with all the time I put in trying to improve the site, I am really losing money, especially since I limit my advertisers to only a specific area of the New Jersey shore. What I am hoping is that if you or someone you know is looking to buy or sell a property in the area, you will think of me and give me a chance to tell you what I can offer you. Now that I can offer commissions as low as 2%, there is really no reason not to.
One last thing, if you are asking yourself why you should advertise on this site, when there are plenty of others to choose from, the answer is simple. I put a lot of time and effort to make my website the most popular for Jersey shore rentals. I also recently spent a substantial amount of money on software to get even better placement on the search engines. Check the other sites and see how many hits they average. I am constantly updating and resubmitting my site to search engines so it can be easily found by potential renters. I personally put in the time to make sure you get your properties rented no matter what it takes. My site is even listed on many other area business sites and is currently the only rental site listed on the town of Seaside Park website. This has been done without my requesting it. That has to say something about the popularity of this site. I also just concentrate on a specific area. The area from Point Pleasant to Seaside Park, and Toms River. All the other sites in their effort to make as much money as possible, include the whole state and many include the whole country.
Feel free to contact any of the advertisers on this site to see what they have to say. Below are excerpts from some of the e-mails that my advertisers have sent me. These are printed word for word, I haven't changed or added anything. As a matter of fact I just cut and pasted from the actual e-mails, so excuse the misspellings etc.
...I am booked for the season (memorial day thru labor day). Almost all of my rentals came from the ad I placed with you.

...Rob and I just purchased our beach house in May and I
was so worried that we were not going to get the house
rented this summer. I started listing with you in
June and, mostly due to your site, we now have the
house rented for the entire summer. I am amazed at
how many hits our page received. Keep up the good
work. This site was a lifesaver!
...I have heard great things about your web site. When do you expect to get new listings for next summer?
...Thanks again for all your hard work.
I was completely rented this summer thanks to your web site.

...We will definitely be listing!
Great summer, thanks to your website and the quality of renters was much better.
...I love your web site.
...So far we've gotten many calls and emails as a result of your ads and have gotten some bookings.
...We've had a good response so far!
The ads are working out great!
Those statistics are great. I got some great activity from your site which recently led to a 2-week rental. The commission I saved from paying a realtor more than paid for your site and the exposure I received was better than any realtor.
I'm running out of available weeks and if Feb/March are going to be more active that Jan. I may need to buy another shore house and list it with you!.
Thanks for your help. Your website is great.
Your website is the best! I am happy to report that so far my wife and
I have rented out two time-segments for this coming summer season for
our home at 75 Bay Shore Drive in Toms River. Both rentals were a
direct result of your Jersey Shore rentals web page.
Thank you very much for creating your website. It is truly a blessing
to folks like my wife and me who cannot rely on a realtor to market our
home for us.
...I am now in the process of looking for websites for which I can post my properties. After seeing yours and comparing it to others, it is truely the best.
I almost completely rented out thanks to you.
My neighbors are so happy to hear about your service and plan to use you to rent their house on N street in Seaside Park.
I have been solicited by many different rental websites,
the most recent being www.shoresummerrentals.com. I
haven't really checked any of them out b/c I have been
pleased with yours.
Thank you greatly for your assistance. We have rented the
unit from 5/27 through Labor Day.
By the way, I believe we received this rental from your site.
90% of the inquiries we receive are from your site. We are
listed on 2 other sites, but as I said, the responses we receive
are from your site.
Thank you very much, your website brought us the greatest
tenants last year, we had a very successful rental season.
I am interested in renting my downstairs apartment year round. It is 75 n street and it was rented through you as a weekly summer rental with great results.
