Landscaping and Long Beach Island Real Estate Market Trends
The Long Beach Island real estate market can be an area of excellent investment opportunity and I am often asked how to best capitalize on this investment. One of the often overlooked yet very important segments of the LBI real estate market is landscape design. Long Beach Island real estate landscaping can add a great deal of value to your home, and if you are planning on selling, may greatly decrease the amount of time a home spends on the market.
Long Beach Island Real Estate Landscaping
Landscape design in the Long Beach Island real estate market differs greatly from other primary real estate markets. For example:
- Sellers and homeowners should keep in mind the maintenance of the landscaping choices.
- It is important to understand what does and what does not constitute lot coverage. When choosing a professional landscape designer, keep in mind their credentials before contracting them to do the work.
The LBI New Jersey real estate market is primarily a second home market. Therefore, many buyers and homeowners keep an eye towards low maintenance. The installation of plants or grass, which may require additional upkeep, can actually be a deterrent when selling a home in the LBI real estate market. It is best to keep plants and shrubs that are low maintenance and can endure the salt air climate. Large grasses and hearty bushes tend to work well. It is also important to understand what constitutes lot coverage. A paver driveway or patio will certainly count towards the amount of coverage allocated for a specific lot. This can have an impact down the road if you plan on making additions or build a new home. Like any contractor, it is important to make sure the landscaper is licensed and is up-to-date on the local codes. Local contractors tend to be best as they are familiar with local zoning regulations and can advise you on the topics I have mentioned above.
Buying and Selling a Home in the Long Beach Island Real Estate Market
A home in the Long Beach Island real estate market can carry a tremendous upside financial potential and can be an excellent investment. Enhancing a home with eye-catching designs both inside and out, such as landscaping, can greatly add to this investment. This is especially true if you are building a home with the intention of selling as a speculative real estate investment on LBI.
