Top 10 Tips for Selling Macomb County MI Condo Properties from Rick Giese Condominium Specialist
Selling condominium properties can be a challenge for home owners. Read on for the top 10 tips for selling condominium properties by Rick Giese associate broker at RE/MAX Advisors & Condominium Specialist. 586-725-1900
2.Hire a realtor like Rick Giese who specializes in selling condominium properties. A real estate agent who knows the market can be an invaluable resource since they can help you price your home for sale and can help get the condo in front of eligible buyers.
3.Find out about all of the condos features and list them. If you have a gym or a pool in the building, mention that as well in any sales ads you write about your condo.
4.Write a great sales pitch for your property. Your real estate agent can help. You can also look at other condo sales ads in the area to find out what people are looking for. If other ads list a roof deck on the building that can be an indication that such a deck is of interest to buyers. If your building has one, you will want to be sure to mention it.
5.Post ads on the MLS (multiple listing services) as well as in online classifieds and other real estate classified services that target condo owners. This will help potential buyers to find your condo
6.Make sure your condo is priced in line with the market rate for other similar condos. Again, your real estate agent Rick Giese can help with this process.
7.Stage your condo. Just like selling a single family home, you want to make sure that your condo looks its best before buyers come. Storage space can be especially important in a condo, which tends to be smaller than a single family home, so make sure to declutter so buyers won’t fear that they’ll have no space to keep their stuff.
8. When selling your condo, you may be obligated to disclose problems that could affect the property’s value or desirability, as well as to disclose HOA minutes and costs of common insurance and utilities. In most states, it is illegal to fraudulently conceal major physical defects in your property, such as a water heater that leaks severely. And many states now require sellers to take a proactive role by making written disclosures on the condition of the condo unit. Ask your real estate agent for the particular laws of your state
9.Prepare for a condo inspection. Most buyers will want to bring in a home inspector for the condo, just as they would for the home. Fix anything you need to fix, making sure to do so according to the rules of your condo association
10.Be up front about fees and costs to buyers. If a buyer can’t quite afford the condo fees or association dues, it is better to know that up front before you and the buyer spend a lot of wasted time on a sale that won’t go through in the end.
Selling condominium properties can be simple if you follow these ten tips and get the right help from a realtor, like Rick Giese associate broker at RE/MAX Advisors and your Macomb County Condominium Specialist.
