4 Tips for Staging Beachfront Property

Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

Learning how to market different kinds of properties is vital for real estate professionals.

Building a successful career with a 100% commission real estate business is all about knowing what you can do to make sure a property sells in a timely manner.

When it comes to getting your client’s waterfront property ready for the market, you need to make sure more than just the house is in order.

When you’re selling a waterfront property, you’re selling more than a house, you’re selling a lifestyle. Make sure you’re doing everything you can to market that lifestyle effectively. Here are some tips.

1.) The Beach-

Make sure it’s cleared of weeds and debris, such as litter or washed up fish. Add some highlights, like a simple firepit made of brick or rock and some beach chairs and an umbrella.

If there are barbecues, clean them up and make them look ready to use.

2.) The Dock-

Make sure the dock looks serviceable and inviting by replacing old or rotted boards and applying fresh paint or varnish. Hammer in nails that have worked their way out and could snag a bare foot.

Replace any dry rotted furniture or equipment. If the dock has lighting, make sure it’s functional and replace dead bulbs.

3.) The Boat-

If there is a boat, make sure it’s a good looking boat. If it’s been sitting docked for a long time, it may need a thorough cleaning. If it’s just too old and ugly to fix up, find it a temporary home somewhere else.

Maybe ask a neighbor to let your client park it at their dock for a while. The same rules apply to jet skis. Make them look good or get them out of there.

4.) Have Local Knowledge-

Find out from the seller about the local scene. Does it get crowded at certain times? Is the fishing good? Are there local events, like regattas or fishing competitions that might be appealing?

Be able to answer questions about the community on the water and what it’s like to be a part of it.

4 Tips for Hosting a Great Open House Event

Big Block Realty wants all our agents to have the latest helpful tools to increase their success.

Learning how to successfully market your listings is vital for real estate professionals.

Building a successful career with a 100% commission real estate business is all about learning everything you can to get your clients the results they need.

Hosting an open house is real estate 101, but it never hurts to hear some new ideas on old fashioned sales techniques. See if these might work for your next open house event.

Open House 3

1.) Make It Classy-

Give your open house a little bump by hosting an art show. Find some local talent in need of a venue and let them cover the walls in their work.

Contact your nearest university and offer the venue to student artists. Hire some local musicians to play some elegant jazz for a few hours.

Offer some wine and cheese. People love a little free entertainment, and it may draw in some folks who wouldn’t normally attend an open house.

2.) Hire A Caterer-

Trying to sell a really high end piece of property? Go all in and hire a great caterer.

The food will keep prospects around a bit longer, and good eats are a fantastic way to start the conversation with visitors.

3.) Invite The Whole Neighborhood-

Get the neighbors involved.

They may have friends in the market for a new home.

Everyone wants their friends to move into their neighborhood.

The neighbors can be great lead generators. Invite them to stop by with their house hunting friends.

They’ll encourage them to buy. Take advantage of the power of friendship!

4.) Yard Signs-

While your internet promotions are invaluable, don’t underestimate the value of good old fashioned yard signs. Put them at every intersection and along the sides of the roads.

Put out a lot of them.

You really can’t overdo this low-tech marketing tool.

Open House Success Tips from Top Flat Fee Brokerage California

When you associate with a leading 100% commission real estate brokerage like Big Block Realty, you get the tools and training you need to be successful. One part of the life of a California Realtor is promoting your real estate listings. A great way for a California real estate broker to promote listings is by holding an open house.

OpenHouse-logoHere are a few simple open house tips from a top flat fee brokerage.

Tidy Up-  When selling a piece of California real estate, you want to appeal to home buyers. A neat and tidy house will always show better to potential buyers. Remove anything from the home that might be offensive or vulgar. Simple and clean go a long way when it comes to selling California real estate listings. Just make sure your listed property is ready for visitors and your open house will be a success!

Send the Sellers Out- When browsing California real estate properties, potential buyers want to be free to look with a critical eye. Sellers should not be present because they are too emotionally connected with the home. You want visitors to feel free of ANY pressure during their visit, and that includes the sellers.

No Pets- With pets come odors so it’s best to remove them prior to holding an open house. There are options such as doggie daycare or even asking a friend to let pets come for a visit during home showings.

Minimize Family Photos- Similar to cleaning a home of pet-related items, it’s also good to advise sellers to minimize their family photos. Build a nice, neutral, blank slate for your open house attendees by taking some of the homeowners’ personal touches out of the picture.

These are just a few tips for making your next open house a success.

Here at Big Block Realty, we are California’s leading 100% commission real estate brokerage. As part of our team, you will keep your entire commission while still enjoying all the perks of working with a virtual broker industry leader such as Big Block.

A career in real estate allows you to leverage your potential in a way that no other industry or field can.
