So before deciding on selling the condo make a list of all the expenses including the broker’s fees, renovation charges, de-clutter charges (if required), advertisement charges and anything which will be spent in the legal process.

Plan Well For An Open HouseThink carefully before an open house. Ask your realtor, if the open house will be the appropriate action to take in your case as open house has many pros and cons. It gives people a feeling of comfort with the deal and it also attracts many new buyers and it also can cause theft along with many people walking into the house, who cannot even afford to buy it.

It’s not wise to keep the listing price very high as this gives the buyers a chance to negotiate more which delays the process and also makes the buyer find problems with the condo to get the price decreased. There are no exact rules but some data and few methods can help you determine with the help your realtor to determine the price.
Make The Condo More Available For ShowingOpen house is one way to show the property but that actually restricts the buyers to be available at that time. Not necessarily, the potential buyers are available all the time. Hence one has to adjust the availability as per the buyer’s convenience. At the same time, restricted visiting hours somehow gives an impression, that the seller not being much interested in selling the condo.
Get Your Condo Inspection ReadyPeople may want to get an inspection done before they decide anything upon buying the property. Hence it’s wise to get the condo ready for any inspections.
