After owning and renovating several beach properties, we decided to offer staging for rental properties. Our own travel experiences helped us realize the need for staging in a competitive rental market.
Why should we stage our rental?
This evening, as I attempt to multitask—a skill I used to pride myself on and which no longer comes as easily—I am uploading pictures to print for the kids. While perusing some photos from our trip to Scotland last summer, we are also working on plans for a kitchen renovation. Last June, we did our annual trip abroad and, as usual, stayed in a variety of different accommodations, which we found on VRBO. Our primary concerns were convenience and comfort with a large group (two preschoolers, Dustin and myself, as well as my best friend and her family). The places we rented were vastly different in each city we visited. In Edinburgh, we stayed in a modern apartment that was situated in a quiet, beautiful courtyard with a garden and plenty of space for the kids to run around. However, one feature this apartment offered made it stand out in my memory—the amazingly luxurious, crisp, clean and comfortable beds.
Trans-Atlantic flights with two little people are exhausting at best and when we arrived, I remember crashing onto the soft, down bedding and lying in a comatose state for several hours until I physically had to drag myself and the boys out of the house to get some sunshine. The rest of the apartment was a typical, smallish European apartment, with a tiny kitchen, a modern living room and nicely done, minimalist features. Still, nearly a year later, the memory of that amazing, plush bedding, stands out in my mind and with that knowledge, I would gladly rent that unit again.
Our latest design services
This brings me to our latest design services. Jenny and I now offer design packages for budget and style-conscience rental owners who want to stand out in a saturated rental market. Wilmington, NC, the city in which we live has no shortage of beach/vacation rentals. This factor makes it imperative that your unit stands well above the rest. The first contact a renter has with a condo or beach house, typically takes place on the internet and we all know the value of fantastic pictures.
