Do oceanfront properties sell easily?
You would think that selling your Pleasure Point beach home is fast and easy,
because after all, how can you say no to a home with an ocean view? However, that is not always the case. Many beach homes do not sell as successfully as the owners would have wanted.
Many factors come into play in selling an oceanfront property which makes the process complicated.
If you want to sell your beach home successfully, you have to step up and bring your A game. Doing this will give you an edge over the tight competition and help to sell your home fast.
What can you do to rise above the competition?
There are many things you can do to make sure that your Pleasure Point beach home for sale will be successful.
The real estate agent you work with to list your home plays a huge role.
You need to hire a real estate agent who has experience in successful sales of oceanfront properties, like me, Sandy Wallace. This is because agents like me have the skills to showcase your home at its best, to get your home the best price. It also means I can sell your home quickly and more efficiently than a real estate agent who does not have any waterfront property selling experience.
To help you be a more proactive home seller, here are five staging tips you can do for your Pleasure Point beach home.
1. Emphasize the water views. Sell your home's best feature.
You live in a home with an ocean view, so emphasize the views! Open up the part of your home that showcases the view. Get more windows or install a deck or balcony, if possible.
If that is not within your budget, rearrange your furnitures in such a way that you get more views of the water. Angle the chairs towards the view. Remove any heavy draperies that limit the beach view.
Make sure that the buyer's eyes are drawn to the views, the minute they enter your home.
2. Clear the water view.
Just as you emphasize the water view in your interior arrangement, you should also work on the exterior part of the house.
If there are things blocking the view to the lake, like a shed or storage space, take it out. Trees with overspreading branches that hinder the view should be trimmed to clear a path to the water. The same goes for any overgrown foliage.
You want to ensure that when a potential buyer comes in, his eyes are drawn to the magnificent view and nothing is blocking it.
3. Upgrade your outdoor living space.
With an oceanfront home, people expect more outdoor living space.
If you have a deck or a dock, make sure it is in excellent condition. Repaint it, if necessary. If you don't have a dock or deck, then make sure that the yard is well-maintained.
You want to ensure that you have a beautiful and clean setting for your beach view.
You want to show your Pleasure Point home for sale at its best, which means removing any extra furniture and appliances and putting them away. Decluttering frees up the area, making it look more spacious, which many potential homebuyers love.
5. Updating lights and fixtures.
Since beach homes are often bright and airy, many homeowners neglect to update the light fixtures.
You have to remember that lights play an important role in staging your home for sale in Pleasure Point beach. It can make a space look more inviting and cozy. Installing updated fixtures will give your home a modern look and create the ambiance you want to present.
