The city of Ocean City is receiving 1.6 million cubic yards of much needed sand to its Southend beaches during the Summer of 2015. The project will stretch from 36th-59th Street, adding much needed additional length to the beach in addition to protecting the island with a much larger dune system.
The project is being supervised by the United States Army Corps of Engineers for beach replenishment in Ocean City, Strathmere, and Sea Isle. The project, which is not coming at an ideal time, is being funded in whole by the federal government at a total cost of $57 million for the three towns. While it is not the ideal timing for such a project, it is important to note that the project is coming at no cost to the City of Ocean City.
In addition, the city will be providing numerous services to help ensure that the experience for beach-goers in the South end will still be fantastic. They will be providing a free shuttle service to help move residents and visitors to the nearest open beach. Updates, more information, and questions may be answered by visitng www.ocnj.us/beachfill or by calling the city of Ocean City @ 609-399-6111.

The Marr Agency has been busy preparing for the 2015 Summer rental season early in the Fall of 2014. We have been busy communicating with owners about their goals for the 2015 season while simultaneously working with our valued tenants from 2014 on renewing their accommodations for next season. While working on rental renewals and early reservations for next Summer, it is important to remember that some patience is required. We make every effort to give returning guests first dibs on their property from last year for the same week, so if you are looking to change weeks or properties, please know that through October we will try to check with last year’s tenants to see if they were hoping to come back before writing a new lease. With that said, remember that it is great to act early in putting together a list of desirable properties for next year. Send your agent 2-3 properties (in order) so that they can get to work on working through your desired hierarchy. Acting early maximizes your chances of getting your property from last year or finding a great new home for your 2015 vacation. Remember, you can search our rental inventory on our Ocean City, NJ vacation rental App available on Apple Devices. To download the app, visit www.marragency.com/app Happy booking!

Ocean City, NJ reservations have been buzzing this June and July. Properties have been filling up with last minute reservations. The Marr Agency, located in Ocean City, NJ, has been helping tenants find great accommodations in Ocean City, New Jersey. If you are looking to be a part of the last minute reservation trend, here are some tips from the Marr Agency: 1- Think about potentially trying to be flexible on your week. With some last minute cancellations, there are sometimes great properties that are available for a week here or there. 2-Remember that within 3 weeks of a check in date, Cash or Certified Funds are the only form of payment that will be accepted. There is simply not enough time to process and deposit normal checks. 3-Working with one of the experienced agents here at the Marr Real Estate Agency will allow you to confirm availability and pricing, help you sort out the best options for your needs, and keep the process smooth leading up to check in. Once your stay starts, we are here to help with any questions or concerns that you have! 4-Remember that reservations are Saturday-Saturday. Weekend reservations sound tempting with a good forecast, but a Fri-Sun rental knock out two weeks for an owner. Try to take a week off from work and life to get to enjoy the entire duration of your Sat-Sat rental! If you were on the fence about coming to Ocean City this summer, just know that the ocean has been warm, the beaches are beautiful, and the local merchants/restaurants are working hard preparing for your business. We would love to help set up you last minute Ocean City, NJ 2014 rental.
