bhr blogHomeowners, if you have been on the fence about putting your property on the market – especially your Jersey Shore-area home – now may be the perfect time.

Here at the virtual midpoint of the beginning of the frenzied Spring selling season, and the quieter – yet still fruitful summer market- lies your opportunity to get your home sold with Beach House Realty.

Because there are now fewer homes listed and, consequently, less competition, now is the time to list with us.

In 2015, 40-percent of all home sales occurred between the months of May through August, according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR). People who are touring homes in our home area of the Long Beach Island region aren’t just ‘window shopping’. They truly are looking for their next beach home.

Want to know how to make your home stand out from others in the summer months? Here are a few tips from our to get your home sale-ready:

  • Spruce up the curb appeal: The street-facing side of your home is its first impression. Liven it up with some ornamental grasses and flower beds. Add in a ¬†good power wash to rinse away the salt and potential dull of the winter months.
  • Rock the patio and deck areas. Typically here at, or nearby the beach, views and outdoor spaces will sell your home. Potential buyers aren’t flocking to our area to spend time indoors. Make sure these areas are pristine and inviting, with just enough accent pieces so buyers can envision themselves there.
  • Keep indoor areas cool and welcoming. For agents bringing buyers through, be sure to allow them to feel the air flow by opening windows to invite in the shore breeze, or make sure the air conditioning is running on those truly stifling days. You want buyers to spend as much time as possible in your home. Make it comfortable for them.
  • Organizer your summer plans to enable communication. Because timing is everything when it comes to selling your home, be sure to let your agent know how you can be reached in the event you may be out of town (or, the country as the case may be) so you can be aware of any time-sensitive offers that may come in. The last thing we would want is to lose a buyer because their offer sat stale for a few days and they moved on.

Taking to heart these quick tips from our Beach House Realty team can help us, help you, get your home sold this summer season!
