Staging Homes in the LBI NJ Real Estate Market
There are plenty of national statistics to show a home which is staged and presented well to perspective buyers will sell for more and spend less time on the market. This can present a challenge for a home that is being used full-time as a primary residence or a summer home on Long Beach Island. Understanding how to stage your Long Beach Island home when you are using it can go a long way to achieving the goal of selling in the LBI real estate market.
How to Stage Your Long Beach Island Home When you are Using It
Staging comes down to a very basic concept. De-clutter, organize, and make your home appears the best it possibly can. This is challenging when you are using a home but there are some simple steps to help in this goal:
Leave the sand at the beach
Remove personal items and photos
Clean out your garage and rent a storage unit.
Long Beach Island is after all a barrier island so sand is everywhere. While it can be challenging, it is important to make sure your home appears clean and well cared for. One of the best ways to do this is by asking visitors to remove their shoes before coming in the house to avoid tracking sand inside. It is also important to remove personal items and photos from your house. This is a tried and true tenet of staging a home. Lastly, do not treat your garage storage but rather a room to help sell your house. Garages are very popular in the real estate market for a storage and potential living space. If you have a lot of items in your garage, consider renting a storage unit and cleaning it out so people can see the potential.
Selling a home in the LBI real estate market carries significant financial risks and rewards. In addition to having a strong marketing plan and pricing strategy, staging your home can go a long way in recognizing top dollar.
