Even though we are in a Seller's market, when you’re getting ready to put your condo for sale on MLS in London Ontario, there are a number of things to think about, to prepare for, and to organize.
- Most buyers select their home based on EMOTIONS. Once their decision is made to buy, they justify their purchase with LOGICAL reasons: facts and features. So, it’s most important to make your condo appeal to all senses. Your property is NOT the only condo the buyers will see. You are competing with other condos in the market.
- Every seller wants to realize as much money as possible when selling their condo. The natural inclination is to price high, thinking you can always come down in the future. With most condo listings getting multiple offers, why hurt your chances?
- Buyers have a lot more information than you think, plus, their Realtor knows prices as well, so, when a buyer is looking for condos in your price range, they or their Realtor may reject showing your condo in favour of other condos in a more reasonable price range.
- For goodness sake, allow your place to be shown! Do you know how many condo listings have restrictive times, like 1-2 on Tuesdays or Thursdays or no showings if it's raining, if it's sunny & my favourite, (true story!), "You can't show it today because the seller doesn't feel like cleaning up today!)
