Shore rentals beginning to heat up

Realtors along the Jersey Shore say rentals are beginning to heat up.

Owners of beach rentals struggled through the recession as vacationers scaled back on their getaways.

Mark Oliver, the owner of a beautiful five-bedroom Bay Head rental home, says he didn't have any bites at all last year.

As warmer weather and better economic times hit, reservations followed.

Daniel Mercuri, of Ocean Beach Rentals, says, "Every time it's a nice day the phones ring off the hook, everybody starts thinking about coming down the shore again."
