ABC’s of selling your condo . . .

We’re getting ready to list a really nice condo and like many condo owners you may wonder what do you need to do before it hits the market.  Here are some of the things on our list.  First impressions make a difference so wash the front door, refresh any pots near the outdoor entry with attractive living plants, sweep the entry area and add a new door mat by your front door.  Your windows are your view to the outdoors so if you can, have the windows professionally washed right before you list your condo.  We recommend putting window screens into storage, wiping the interior window & sliding door tracks so they’re clean, and opening up all drapes and blinds for showings.  The vibe inside needs to be bright and inviting, so check and change out any blue-tint or dim light bulbs, remove clutter behind doors and in closets and make sure that the condo smells fresh – we like citrus so try a citrus cleaner as you wipe everything down.  On the day you hit the market consider having a bouquet of fresh flowers on your kitchen counter, nice relaxing music playing, and lamps turns on so all your potential buyers and brokers feel welcome and inspired by your condo.  On surfaces, three is our favorite number so if you have more than three items on coffee tables, dressers or other furniture, edit and pack them up.  Fewer items create a crisp look, and after all, most everything needs to be packed anyway if you are moving.  These tips will help create an inviting and attractive impression on your buying audience and we hope the combination of light real estate inventory, affordable interest rates and great presentation helps you get your condo sold promptly.
