Why are the homes listed only available from April-October since you are purchasing the home?

The homes I am looking at are on leased land

Sorry I'm responding in December to something you posted in May.  It's the first time I've seen your question.

The homes you're likely looking at are summer cottages.  The real estate taxes are very low compared to most in the area as the Town taxes them as being "seasonal."  If you're looking at the ones in Calverton, they are in Woodcliff Park.  A gate goes up at the end of October so you can't even drive inside. When you buy one of these you are not buying "real estate" you are buying personal property.  It's more like buying a mobile home or a car...........and you can't get a mortgage on them.  Folks buy them just to have a place to hang out by the beach in the warmer months.
