When you decide to put your condo up for sale, you may have to go about some things a bit differently than if you were putting a house on the market. Since there are some extra considerations that come with selling a condo, you should read the information that is provided here. It will explain some things you want to do and some things to consider in order to help you to sell your condo quickly and for a fair price.
Your yard and the HOA
There are certain rules that you need to follow according to the HOA, and this can limit you in some areas, but it can be a big plus in other areas. While you may be stifled with regards to what you can do to certain parts of your yard, you will know that the yard is being tended to regularly, and this means it is off your plate. The part of the yard that is your responsibility also needs to stay looking great as it will be the first impression a buyer has of the condo.
Your exterior and the HOA
When it comes to the exterior of your condo, there will be certain pros and cons in this area as well when it comes to that HOA you have to deal with. One thing you can thank them for is that the roof of your condo will be kept in good shape because they tend to care for the roofs. However, if you want to slap a fresh coat of paint on the exterior of your condo, you need their permission, and you need to have it painted in the colors approved by them. Since your condo is likely attached to another unit, they may require you to get that unit's permission and paint them both.
Boast about the condo's plentiful benefits
When you are talking to your realtor about your condo, be sure you give them all the details about everything the condo community has, as well as the condo. Some people will be concerned about the noise that can come through the walls from the other unit. So let your realtor know if your neighbors are never home or if they don't have children. The realtor can use this information to set the buyer's mind at ease. Also, let your realtor know about the Olympic-sized pool, the extremely large gym, the fantastic community office space, and any other great things about the condo community that would be available to the buyers.
