Get your property ready for the 2019 Summer rental season in OCNJ!

As the summer rental season gets closer, it is time to get your rental property ready.  Here are a few things that you don’t want to forget:

 

Start with the outside and utilities

When getting your rental property prepared for the season, it is important to get your utilities turned and make sure that your a/c, plumbing and gas are running properly.  Take a look around at the exterior of your home as well, and make any necessary repairs and powerwash any areas that need it.

 

Make sure appliances and technology are working

Take a walk around your home and make sure that all tvs, kitchen appliances, wifi and washer/dryers are in working order.  Also take the time to check your remotes and all light bulbs are working. A good thing to keep an extra supply of in your property are light bulbs and batteries, so if they stop working, your guests can easily fix the problem themselves.

 

Do a deep clean before the start of the rental season

A deep clean by a professional company is a great way to ensure that your home is spotless before the busy rental season begins.  Deep cleans allow you to focus on areas of your home that get neglected during the year–like the space behind and under appliances, air conditioning vents and the inside of cabinets and drawers.

8 Essentials For Your Beach Bag This Summer

As summer draws near and you get ready to head to OCNJ for your beach vacation, you are probably getting your beach bag ready.  Here are 8 essential items that you don’t want to forget to pack for your time at the beach!

  1. A high spf sunscreen and spf lip balm–protect yourself from the sun and don’t forget the lip balm!
  2. A waterproof and sand-proof bluetooth speaker–if you like to listen to good music on the beach–this is a must!
  3. A pair of uv protection sunglasses
  4. The perfect beach mat or a water-resistant and sand-free beach blanket with stakes
  5. Oversized beach towels–regular size towels just don’t do the job, spring for the oversized ones to keep you dry all day!
  6. A pack of towel clips (or good old fashioned clothespins will do the job too)–you won’t need to keep adjusting your towel all day long, clips will keep it in place.
  7. A portable phone charger–the sun has a tendency to drain your battery.  Keep your phone out of the sun so it doesn’t overheat, and a portable charger will keep you charged all day long.
  8. A large refillable water bottle–don’t forget to stay hydrated!

3 Reasons To Sell Your Home This Spring

Are you thinking about listing your home? There’s really no reason to wait. While the Spring housing market is the busiest time of year for home sales, there are some great reasons to list your home right now:

1 – Summer is coming! Many buyers looking in OCNJ are looking to take advantage of the summer months. They want to have everything taken care of in their new home so they can relax come summer. Other buyers are also looking now for investments in rental properties. The sooner they have their home, the sooner they can start booking rentals.

2 – Since OCNJ is a vacation spot, most buyers aren’t basing their move around the school year. That means many buyers have flexibility in buying and closing.

3 – Spring Market is here! Serious buyers are attached to their computers waiting for new listings to pop up.

Whenever you choose to list your home, know that we are here to help! A Marr Agency agent can be reached at 609.399.7036.
