Before Selling a Condo or Townhome...
When you have outgrown your condominium or townhome, or it's just time to move on, you want to get the best value for your condo when you sell.
First Things First...
An Agent that specializes in selling condos and townhomes knows the ins and outs of marketing this type of property and will net you the best results. Choose your Agent wisely.
Preparing For The Sale...
In selling, first impressions and "curb appeal" are everything. With a condo or townhome, curb appeal comes more with the overall look of the development or complex and how well it's maintained - something normally controlled by the homeowners association or board of directors. It's in your interest to make sure that the property is well maintained, so be involved.
With somewhat less control over outside "curb appeal", it's even more important to impress would-be Buyers once they open the door to your suite or townhome. Things to consider:
- Get rid of the clutter.
- Don't display too much furniture
- Keep the walls light
- Add some mirrors
- Highlight tall lines
- Disguise undesireable window views
- Clear out your closets
Keep The Buyer In Mind...
Make your condo "buyer friendly" by having copies of pertinent documents such as Rules and Regulations, Current fees and exactly what they include, Current budget documents, Statement detailing owner/renter ratio.
Another thing to consider is what attracted you to this property when you were a buyer. Why did you buy? What did you enjoy most about living here? Which amenities did you use the most? What do your friends say about your condo? An experienced Condo Agent will know how to use this information to your advantage - promoting benefits that translate into a top dollar sale.
Selecting An Agent...
Select an Agent that understands and knows condomniums and townhomes because they are different that detached homes. Also, Agents that specialize in condominiums generally have a good database of well qualified purchasers which allows them to make a quick match for your property. A good Agent will also be able to give you a realistic appraisal of how much you can expect for the sale of your property.
