What's happening in the real estate market for Fire Island homes is very different than what is happening in many parts of the country.

Home values and vacation rentals are holding up quite well. This is because there is a tremendous demand for a limited quantity of vacation homes and rentals. This is the place where people want to be.

Prime real estate will always be prime real estate, for which there will normally be a strong demand.

The only noticeable difference from prior years is willingness on the part of the seller or renter to be a little more accommodating on closing dates and or season rental dates.

What's happening is that people who have been coming to Fire Island for years are telling their friends about this one of a kind community, and when they visit, they fall in love with the beauty and charm that is Fire Island.

Living in a car free, carefree community only steps away from beach or village dining and entertainment is a throwback to a more casual and fun filled era. People can really relax on Fire Island and avoid the stress of New York City.

One of the best features is that it is about an hour from NYC and a ten minutes ferryboat ride across the bay from Long Island, New York. This is all part of what keeps Fire Island special and unique.

The type of people that gravitate to this wonderful Island are usually family orientated, fun loving people who are looking to be able to enjoy their summer vacations in a relaxed and fun filled manner. Sitting on a crowded highway to the Hamptons for three and one half hours is not part of the ritual they are looking for on summer weekends. They just want to relax.

This the time of year when people start hunting for their summer vacation homes. March and April are prime months to find vacation rentals, but hunting for a house to purchase can be done at any time of the year.

There are a number of small communities such as Ocean Beach that can suit almost all individual tastes. It is a matter of deciding what you are looking for, and having someone with the necessary expertise and knowledge show you what is available.
