As you may know, I’m one of Conover’s Summer Rental experts. Because of that, I spend a lot of time watching the vacation market, researching trends, and talking to people about what works and doesn’t work for both homeowners and renters.
I can tell you one thing, Asbury Park is shaping up to have its busiest summer in decades. A couple things are playing into that:
1. Asbury Park has had a lot of positive press in the past 6 months. Below are just a few of the articles in national and international publications:
- Asbury Park was just ranked #10 out of 50 in Travel & Leisure‘s Best Places to Travel in 2016.
- The Wall Street Journal wrote about upscale development in Asbury Park back in March.
- Better Homes & Gardens listed three Asbury Park venues in The New Jersey’s Boardwalks: Greatest Hits
- Huffington Post gave us a shout out in 15 U.S. Hotspots Nobody Cared About 15 Years Ago
- New Jersey Monthly called us one of their favorite downtowns!
- Bloomberg wrote “Asbury Returns” in an article about a new luxury hotel opening up this summer
2. News outlets aren’t the only ones starting to notice Asbury Park. There are a number of new & returning events this summer, including:
Louis C.K. (check out his newly added late show!!)
- The Stone Pony Summer Stage has a great line up this year
- Punk Rock Bowling!
- The New Alternative Music Festival
- A Blues & Brews Festival
- New Jersey’s biggest Pride Festival
At Conover, we’ve spent years preparing for this moment. We’re ready for all the new people! One of the features we have that sets us apart from other real estate agencies doing summer rentals is the ability to pay online by e-check or credit card. Another bonus for our guests is a welcome pack full of coupons & freebies to some favorite shops & restaurants so you can take advantage of locals’ favorite spots at a discount.
If you or someone you know is interested in a summer rental in Asbury Park this year, don’t delay! A lot of places are already booked for the season, but I can still help you find the right rental at the right price.
Thanks & see you on the boards!
