If you need to sell your condo, fast, you might envision having to scramble and stress — and ultimately settle for a low price because you don’t want to gamble not selling it all. But thankfully it doesn’t have to be like that at all! Realtors already know the entire process front to back, forwards and backwards which means we also know how to expedite the process. Keep reading to find some simple tips to significantly increase your chances of a quick sale at a good price.
1. Price It Right.
If your asking price seems high compared to other similar units (even at other properties) some buyers might not even bother to schedule a viewing. Does that mean you must low-ball your price? No. Just be strategic and set a price that’s likely to encourage a quick sale. Your Realtor will be able to provide you with a list of comparable and suggestions based on their own experience and knowledge, don’t underestimate this valuable input.
2. Stage It Smartly.
Staging your condo doesn’t need to take a lot of time. There are many things you can do, within just a few days, to make your unit show well. Cleaning, decluttering and painting are the basics and when it all becomes a little too stressful to manage by yourself, use the help of professional services. They have all the equipment and usually a team to make big jobs get done quickly well.
3. Make It Easy To See.
You want a large number of qualified buyers to see your unit early on. So be accommodating when it comes to scheduling viewing appointments, especially on week nights. Your perfect buyer could have an inconsistent or inconvenient schedule that might mean less than ideal notice for doing a showing than you’d prefer or making small scheduling adjustments so that it’s available. Keep in mind this is temporary and you’ll forget any inconvenience when you get a good offer!
