Survivor of Hurrican Sandy needing a rental?
Hi all: I had to return to my regular real estate job. I found it rather difficult, after 4 months, to maintain the quality of this site. Please read below for more information:
1. The following is a list of websites you can find updated rentals.
2. This website will shut down on 05/01/2013
3. You can still submit a rental through the "add a property" tab, but it will only be put on the following Jersey Shore Gives Back facebook page
This site has been established to provide displaced survivors with rental properties they may not find elsewhere. We are sorry for your loss, and we hope that you successfully find housing that fits your needs!
Also, we are hearing many stories about the housing/shelter crisis AND the process displaced families are being put through .... please tell your confidential story by clicking on the "TELL us..." tab.
A FEW IMPORTANT NOTES and ADDITIONAL RENTAL RESOURCES:
1. Please visit the "Potential Rental and Housing" tab.
2. You may also visit the following sites:
- www.socialserve.com is a list of rental properties FEMA is circulating.
- www.nj.gov/njhrc/ for a list of rentals provided on the NJ government site. Their site has other useful rental information!
- www.momls.com is the Monmouth County MLS system utilized by Realtors.
- www.app.com is the Asbury Park Press "Have a Rental, Need a Rental" list.
- www.Craigslist.com has rental properties
- Affordable Housing Allianceplease contact the AHA if you need any advice on housing and to see if you qualify for rental assistance through their available programs.
- Please protect yourself by learning about important warnings provided by the Monmouth County Division of Consumer Affairs: www.visitmonmouth.com/PressDetail.aspx?ID=1285
- TIPS: There is FEMA assistance for people who were renters prior to the storm. Please contact the hotline to register: 1-800-621-3362 or apply online at: www.disasterassistance.gov . Programs are being added and updated often. DO call FEMA everyday until you receive the housing assistance you need. Request a "case manager" - don't wait for them to ask you if you would like one.
URGENT: INFORM yourself by downloading and reading the "Truth In Renting" booklet.
