The real estate is a good investment because they don’t make it anymore. Because the agents are busy these days anyone selling your condo may be thinking more of listing more condos than your welfare. If you plan on selling and moving you will need to take some simple steps to get the most money you can.
First you need to get your condo ready to show. Buyers like condos that are clean with as few of your things as possible lying around so it’s time to do a spring-cleaning. Some large-scale furniture may cost more to move than its worth, so sell these things locally. You may want to buy brand-new things subsequently anyway. Then look around for small-scale stuff you don’t want and sell it on eBay. What’s left is stuff you can’t live without or it’s just junk. If you aren’t sure then ask your wife, she’ll point out the junk to you.
If you like most people that have accumulated too much stuff then consider renting storage for a few months. One of the best home improvements that don’t expend a lot of money is painting, especially if you don’t mind doing the labor.
Ever notice how guests always end up in the kitchen? Most people like kitchens and this is the first room to remodel or just clean and paint. The next most important room is the bathroom. Repair leaks, rusty places, and replace the interesting thing that seem to get ugly over time. If you have pets make sure you don’t have a cat litter container standing reeking up the place. Homeowners get used to their own odors and can’t smell a thing but your visitors’ sure can!
Big dogs scare some people and perhaps it would be best to keep the dog away for a few weeks. After you finish with everything invite some friends over for “states parties ” and get some feedback on how everything searches. When everything searches good it’s time to take some pictures. Remember, an image is worth a thousand words.
If you are hiring a Real Estate broker select one who work in your region and he/she is a local realtor. The listing agent gives you plenty more exposure through their professionally taken pictures and video, their broker’s MLS system with all cooperating agents, their condo marketing through their own websites and other syndicated real estate websites, their advertises and intercity referrals. Purchaser trust them more also. The small-scale cut-rate company is possibly slower to discover a buyer and solve problems.
When you are ready to move be careful to pick an honest moving company. Many of them have been comprising truckloads of belongings and demanding more fund. Pick one with a good reputation.
