There are a lot of condos to choose from out there, so you want to do everything you can to make your condo stand out.
Every condo association has a set of rules and guidelines – things you can and cannot do with your unit. This is something you are probably aware of by now, but you should know that it usually applies to your sale as well. The association may place limits on who you can and cannot sell to. You may also have to get the buyer pre-approved by the association.
This is all stuff you should know before you list your condo. Regarding marketing your place, the association may not allow signs out in front of your unit. They might also potentially restrict whether you can put a for sale sign in the window as well. Understanding procedures the condo association will put on you is important.
This is the problem every homeowner must deal with when deciding to sell. Your condo will only sell if it is priced competitively. The more you price beyond what similar units cost, the longer you can expect your listing to languish on the market. And the longer it sits unsold, the more of a reputation it develops. The longer it takes to sell, the harder it is to make a deal finally. It is far better to price competitively and sell now than to be stuck with your condo for six months and wind up selling for a fraction of what it’s worth. How to price a home is one of the most important considerations for a selling a condo. If you get the price, wrong nothing else you do will matter. One thing you need to understand is the fact that condos are far easier to value than custom homes. The typical condo development only has a handful of designs. This makes putting a value on a unit far simpler. Using comparable sales data is far easier when you do not have to make a significant amount of adjustments based on custom amenities or even the characteristics of a lot.
An agent can advise you on what to do, and what not to do, when selling your condo. This is advice and guidance that is usually well worth the money, and often results in a higher selling price. You can try to sell a condo for sale by owner but it is usually not advisable. In many condo developments you are restricted from even putting out a for sale sign which makes reaching buyers difficult.
