With people looking for available East Vancouver condos for sale, you may think that selling off your condo would be easy. Buyers, however, can be picky and competition in the area’s real estate market is quite stiff. To successfully sell your condo and do it fast, you’ll need to make yourself distinct from your competition. Here are a few tips on how to do that:
Do Some Cleanup
People will drop by your condominium to check out just what you’re selling. To ensure that they see your condo in the best light, it would be best to do some cleaning. This goes beyond just sweeping away all the clutter. For example, you can rearrange your furniture to make your rooms look bigger. A professional realtor would be able to make a few suggestions on how to stage your condo to make a better impression on potential buyers.
A lot of condominiums are often the result of cookie-cutter design. This is why putting your own personal stamp on the condo unit can make people appreciate it more. This need not be a major fix; minor changes like a fresh coat of paint, unique bathroom fixtures and other minimal upgrades can have potential buyers seeing your condo unit in a positive light. A popular choice to improve in condominiums is the small kitchen; having a better place to prepare food and store it can often convince buyers on the fence. Real estate agents helping you to sell the property can suggest other small fixes to improve your unit’s chances of getting sold.
Price It Right
Another way of ensuring that people buy your condo is to properly price it. Most of the time, people set their units above the common price. This is because they don’t know the current state of the market. This is why sellers should consult with realtors from firms like Real East Van to properly set their selling price.
Target the Right People
You will also have to sell your condominium to the right people. Depending on where your unit is located, you will have different types of people to aim for. For example, a well-placed East Vancouver condo with nearby schools and hospitals may be attractive to families, if it is large enough. Young singles may have other requirements.
