Want To Maximize The Sale Price For Your Condo? Experts Say “Start Planning 15-Days Ahead”
What you do in the days before you put your condo on the market will determine how long your condo will take to sell, how much money you’ll get and how easy (or difficult) your selling experience will be.
There are some simple things that you can and should be doing right now to make sure you’ll get the highest price in the least amount of time.
Condos in London Ontario are selling, especially townhouses for full price or even 5-15% more. However, why are some selling for asking price and others for more?
Here is a case in point that I was involved in this weekend. I was representing a buyer who was looking for a townhouse in this complex because of the neighbourhood and proximity to her employment.
There were 3 for sale , all listed within 24 hours. I requested appointments to see all 3 with my client and gave 24 hours notice to the listing agents. Two replied back within the hour, the other never got back to me, even after 3 calls including two emails.
Any way, it is now Monday and all are sold! The one that the agent did not get back to me sold for $1,000 for under the asking price.
One sold for $10,000 over asking price and the other $18,000 over! Was there much difference in condition or features? No there was not. Why the huge spread among the almost identical 3 units?
- One unit had all the lights on, window drapes open and you could tell, freshly cleaned top to bottom, the listing had lots of pictures that showed the unit fairly, in other words, pictures were not air brushed etc.
- One unit , which actually was the nicest of the 3, beds were not made, the listing information was incorrect and dishes in the sink.
- The unit we could not see was sold by the listing sales person, she represented both parties and as I mentioned, it sold for $1,000 less than asking and from the pictures, looked really nice!
Strategy and the planning of when you list, how you list, how easy you make it for buyers to see your place and know what to expect will make a huge difference in your selling price.
