Showing Your Home

When you’re selling your home and you’re getting ready for a showing, here are some tips to make sure you’re successful. 

Declutter all the living spaces and put your personal items away. This includes the countertops with any kind of small appliances or toiletries. Put those away in the cabinets down below.

Take care of any minor repairs before the showing including covering any kind of cracks, replacing light bulbs, or possibly repairing some of those broken or ripped screens.

Enhance the curb appeal of your home by cutting the grass, trimming the bushes, adding in some mulch here and there, and planting flowers in key spaces. This will really make that buyer’s first impression a good one.

Consider getting a storage unit to get rid of any of those unwanted or unnecessary furniture items or larger things that you don’t want in the house because they take up too much space.

You may also want to consider bringing in a third party cleaning company to do a deep clean of the home to make sure it smells good and looks really fresh to show that pride of ownership for the buyer’s first impression.

Hiring Beach Team can help you maximize your showings, with advice on quick fixes and staging to maximize your selling price. If you have any questions, text, e-mail, or call our team today.

We decided to use Steve Nader based on a neighbor recommendation and we are so glad we did. This was our first experience selling a home and we had two requests - keep the process as simple as possible and get a fair price for our home. Steve over-delivered on both of those requests. It was an emotional process to sell the home we lovingly restored and lived in for many years, but Steve was supportive, understanding and professional during the entire process. As a bonus, the photos and videos his team created were exceptionally stunning and are a great keep-sake. 5-stars on every level. We appreciate you Steve!

We have done several transactions, both buying and selling, with Steve and the Beach Team and cannot speak highly enough… the communication, attention to detail, knowledge of the market and expert negotiation/strategy!! We recommend Steve to every person who asks for a real estate referral. We are grateful for Steve’s knowledge and expertise in helping us with our family home!
Maddie H.
I listed my home with Steve Nader/Beach Team and was very happy with the service I received. Steve is very professional and knows what he is doing. I received multiple offers within one week of the listing of my property. What I liked about Steve is that after I had accepted an offer he followed through making sure the buyer performed. He made sure that the deal was completed in a timely manner with minimal stress. He is always available and treats you like you are his only client.

My wife and I recently closed on a property working with Steve Nader @ Beach Team Real Estate. We were first-time home buyers and rather new to real estate. Steve and his team helped us navigate a fairly complex situation with patience, professionalism, superior local knowledge and excellent advice. Steve was down-to-earth, yet also tenacious in representing our interests - both were desired traits when we were choosing our realtor. Our overall experience was extremely satisfactory and I would recommend Beach Team to anyone looking to buy a home in the area!
Adam D.
Absolutely the best service and care you could hope for! Steve and his colleagues in Long Beach went above and beyond our wildest expectations. We were truly delighted to have been represented by such a professional, attentive and considerate team.
Brilliant, Fantastic and Awesome!

Steve was everything you could ask for in a real estate agent and friend! He was was so buttoned up on every aspect of the sale of our home it put us as such ease. The communication was what made the experience amazing. Steve was on vacation with his family and still made calls about the process! That the kind of guy Steve is and why I will always recommend him to everyone I know that is looking to buy or sell a home.
Mike S.
When we first met Steve, we knew he was the man for the job. Steve jumped on board right away helping us put our house on the market. He then brought in his associate Rachel, to assist us in relocating to another place. Rachel reliable and sweet and made us very comfortable. After our opening weekend, we received many offers and with Steve’s help, the house sold. I would highly recommend The Beach Team. Steve is a great negotiator too!
Richard G.
Steve Nader and Company at Beach Team Real Estate were fantastic in helping my wife and I not only buy the home we desired at the price we wanted, but also fundamentally important in getting our condominium sold in under a week and above asking price. Throughout the whole process Steve was friendly, responsible, hands-on, and motivated. Furthermore, he was always available by phone, text, or email and ready answer or address any questions or issues. He is also a problem solver. Last, Steve was able to make the whole process straightforward and a lot of fun. We can’t thank him and his staff enough. We highly recommend them.

Steve Nader was our real estate agent that helped us sell my mother's house in Gardena. I have worked with other real estate agents in the past and have to say Steve was the best. From start to finish, he was a savvy professional who did his best to get the most for my mom. Negotiations got a bit tricky as my mom's house had some issues. That's when Steve's skills as an agent shined. We sold the house for well above asking price and couldn't have been more pleased.
John M.
Why the five stars? Because Steve Nader and the “Beach Team” at Coldwell Banker were extremely talented, professional and relational in the process of selling our home. His knowledge, understanding and wisdom served us well in coming up with a selling plan, guiding us along the way and working with the buyer’s agent. Steve and the team were always available to address questions we had and to keep us posted as things progressed. I interviewed three other realtor professionals before meeting Steve but after interviewing him I felt confident that he would represent my interests well and this proved to be the case. Steve and the team performed masterfully. I give Steve and the “Beach Team” my highest recommendation.
Dan S.
If you are looking for a realtor that knows the local area and has excellent negotiation skills then Steve Nader is your guy! We listed our home with Steve...COVID happened, we had a slab leak and jumbo loans were impossible to get! Was Steve phased by any of this? He just rolled up his sleeves, kept us calm, and SOLD our home. Not only is Steve a masterful realtor he has a whole team behind him making things go smoothly and the process of selling your home pain-free and easy. I highly recommend Steve Nader and the Beach Team!
Jim M.
Steve Nader is a hard working professional that went above and beyond selling our home of 27 years. It was a challenging and scary time to list our home due to COVID. But we felt safe listing our home with Steve and the Beach Team, they are up to date and practice the most stringent of the COVID guidelines. On top of this Steve worked hard at getting us top dollar and expertly negotiated the selling of our home making the deal happen in a timely manner. We highly recommend Steve Nader and the whole Beach Team for all your Real Estate needs!
Suzanne M.
It’s great to work with Steve and team, attention to detail and making the sell process stress free. I am looking forward to our purchase next, not the first time using Steve and team for many reasons. Highly recommended. Thank you!!
Gonzalo C.
Steve and his team at Beach Team did an excellent job selling our condo. My wife and I could not be happier. During these challenging times of COVID-19 he had more showings than I would have ever thought and multiple offers on our home. He communicated with us throughout the entire process and kept us well-informed so we knew what was going on the entire time. I highly recommend him and we will definitely be using him again in the future. Thank you to Steve and his team for getting the job done so well!
Robert A.
Steve superbly handled our sale- he was confident, knowledgeable, and thorough. His support staff was equally timely, professional, and efficient. We couldn’t be happier, and we have enthusiastically recommended him to others. Thanks, Steve! You’re definitely the best in the business.
Anne W.
Steve and his team are an excellent team of professionals. They are knowledgeable and extremely good at what they do. I appreciated the communication and ability to pivot quickly to get our home sold quickly. Our home sold at record numbers for our area. I highly suggest Steve Nader.
Hatem A.
Steve Nader is one of the nicest, and most professional real estate agents we’ve ever met. He works so hard to make sure everything is taken care of in every aspect of your real estate needs. He was always there when we needed him. He will make sure you get the highest price possible for your home. He has a great team working with him as well. Both Steve and his team go above and beyond to help you, even as far as volunteering to come and help you get ready for open house etc. You will not be disappointed. Even though we gave Steve Nader a hard time most of the time and joked around with him he always had a good attitude. Steve and his team are great people and fun to work with, we are going to miss them.
Debra H.
It’s always wonderful when a team has your back! Steve Nader has his team made it so easy. This team will keep you on track and doing what needs to be done to sell and buy your new home. Our family was wowed and well taken care of! Highly recommend!
Kelly P.
We have no hesitation to give Steve Nader and the entire Beach Team a 5 Star review! We’d give 10 if we could. We both purchased and sold our house through them and both transactions were incredibly smooth. We appreciated their transparency in communication and we always knew they had our best interest in mind. The listing marketing was top notch and the organization along the way was stellar. Thank you!
Jaime S.
I have nothing but great things to say about Steve and his team. These guys know the Long Beach market like nobody else. They were on top of every part of our listing, open house, negotiations and everything after the fact.
Matt V.
Steve and his team were nothing short of amazing. He not only sold our home, but he also found us a new one that exceeded our expectations. From prelisting prep, to marketing, and close his team had such a high level of communication that we felt there was nothing to worry about. Thank you Steve Nader and Beach Team.

"Sold my home in 23 days!"
Steve and his team were extremely efficient and guided us expertly through the sale of our home. His team quickly came in and did fixes to beautifully stage the home in a matter of 4-5 days. They then assisted us with securing some wine boxes to help us with our move. The team was completely professional, all worthy of our trust and super efficient. It makes all the difference in the world with experts you can trust.
Masako Y.
Steve and his team were on it from day one. It was clear to me these guys are professionals and I never had any doubt my condo was going to sell.
Brett C.
Awesome experience! Would recommend to anyone.
Jonathan B.
Steve and the Beach Team provide 5 star service all the way! My husband and I have bought and sold 3 homes with Steve over the past 5 years as our family continues to grow. He brings both vast market knowledge and amazing customer service to one of the most important decisions you will make in life. Steve has a keen eye for detail and brokers a favorable transaction every time. The Beach Team goes above and beyond to ensure each client is beyond satisfied.

Steve Nader is an exceptional agent, and I recommend him wholeheartedly. We had initially hired another agent to sell a family house that needed some special attention. The first agents lacked the skillset to market it properly - and while we received multiple offers over the course of many weeks and open houses, each one fell through and each subsequent offer was lower and lower. Meanwhile, the market continued to soften and we became more and more discouraged. The final offer was at a 25% discount from where we started. Our agent advised us to take it. We almost did. Instead, we fired the agents and circled back to Steve. Best decision possible. He suggested a modest investment in giving the place a facelift - polishing the wood floors, fresh coat of paint on the interior, staging every room expertly - along with creating beautiful marketing materials - photos, video, copy - that repositioned the house perfectly. The transformation of an old, much lived in house was stunning, and the market responded. After one open house, we received 5 offers. Steve negotiated behind the scenes and helped us land a price, in a down market, that was nearly 20% higher than our asking price. The man is a master. My only regret is that I don't have any other houses for him to sell!
Kurt B.
Steve did an amazing job! I am so impressed with how he transformed my house at a low cost to maximize sale price, received multiple offers, and sold for over list price. He has an excellent team that provided everything that I needed. Very organized from start to finish. I highly recommend his team!

"Actually the Best Realtor Ever!"
I used to be a realtor, and my husband is a commericial broker in several states including California, which is to say, we could have put our home on the market ourselves and we probably would have done a fine job. But we were completely blown way when we met Steve Nader. He is an absolute market expert, and makes everything EFFORTLESS for his clients - from guidance and recommendations to get the house ready for market to dealing with tedious potential buyers questions. In three days, hundreds of eyes set on our property thanks to his brilliant marketing and strong network of connections. Through our entire contract to close period, he kept us up to date on everything necessary and nothing extra. Best decision we've ever made to hire Steve Nader.
Kathleen K
This is our second experience with Steve and his team. It was going to be difficult to beat the first one but they pulled it off with ease. After selling our home last year Steve was on the hunt for our perfect home, no easy task with the want list my wife had given him. He found our house, helped us draft a killer offer and nailed the negotiations. They helped us through every step and followed through to the very end. Cannot recommend Steve and Beach Team enough.
Matt V
Steve Nader and his team are simply the best there is. As first time sellers, Steve has held our hand through out the entire process and pulled off things I never thought possible, and quickly! Our house was sold within days with multiple over asking offers. He is, by far, the best at what he does. I can't stress that enough. He cares, he is straight forward, he listens, he is educated, and he is extremely knowledgable about the current real estate market. His passion is unmatched. I promise, hiring Steve will be the best thing you do in your real estate transaction. Steve, Lynda and the entire Beach Team have earned their place as my and my family's go to realtor, without question. Do not hesitate, go with the Beach Team.
Lauden D.
Steve and his team went above and beyond with the sale of our property. Steve provided excellent project management services for his team of fast and thorough home remodeling contractors right from the beginning. He was at the property daily making sure everything was on schedule and done to requirements. He helped the sale to get well above asking once the work was done. Steve was also instrumental for smoothing out concerns from the buyer during escrow, without which we would have probably lost the sale. Anyway, I can’t speak any more highly of Steve and his team. He’ll be our go to guy for future real estate needs.
