Staging a House on Long Beach Island. What Is Staging and Who Needs to Stage?
Staging, in its most simple form, means to arrange the furniture and décor to make a house more appealing. Having too much furniture in a room or having the “wrong” kind of furniture in a room can make it appear smaller and turn off potential buyers. Some highlights of Staging a House in the LBI Real Estate Market include:
- Removing excess furniture
- Removing personal items and photos (although I do suggest leaving some personal photos of you or your family having fun at the house. For most people a purchase in the LBI real estate market is a vacation home and it can help to show the fun and memories that owning a house on Long Beach Island can make)
- Purchasing new furniture and including it in the sales price to give the house a fresh new look
It should be remembered that not all homes are good candidates for Staging a House in the LBI Real Estate Market. If the house was damaged by Hurricane Sandy and has not been repaired than staging clearly has no value as the house is being sold for land value. Likewise, if the house being sold is very old staging may prove to be too great an expense to incur. If the house needs substantial renovation it would be a better use of money, in most cases, to simply discount the house rather than invest them and money into Staging a House in the LBI Real Estate Market.
