Have all the rules from your home owners association, covenants, or condo board. There may be limits on parking vehicles outside or who you can sell to and you may have to get pre-approval to do so. It is best to find this out in advance so you can plan for it. You will also need to have copies ready for buyers.
Hire a Realtor who has the expertise in selling properties. No Joke...sometimes agents that advertise years of experience have only TWO YEARS. Find out hoe long your next agent has been licensed in Wisconsin with our link HERE.
Organize all of the features, of your home, including any recent updates and list them. Maybe write a note to all prospective buyers why you liked and bought the property. With the help of your agent, compare yours to what other properties are selling and accentuate what you have.
The local MLS and internet will likely be 70% of the reason why a buyer buys the home they do. Be there too, and make sure the pictures show well. If that means getting short-term storage to show the size of the property, do it so the home shows well.
Make sure your property is priced in line with the market rate for other similar homes. Again, your real estate agent can help with this process.
Stage your home. You want to make sure that yours looks its best before buyers come. Years ago we helped a bachelor in selling his condo. A professional stager helped replace the newly equipped military vehicles that were pictures on his walls and soften the image throughout. The home sold within 60 days. Love ya John!!!
Hold open houses. You want to make sure it is easy for buyers to get to the open houses as well. If, for example, your property is in a gated building or a doorman building, make sure you arrange to have the building gate open or the doorman let people up You don’t want to place obstacles in the way of a potential buyer seeing your home.
Prepare for the inspection. Most buyers will want to bring in a home inspector for the home. Fix anything you need to fix, making sure to do so according to the rules of your condo association. You may even want to pay for an inspection first!
Be up front about any home owners association fees or 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.
