Successful Condo Selling in Edmonton
Selling a condo requires a specialized level of experience and care, without it mistakes happen. I help my clients avoid them altogether.
Top 5 Mistakes Condo Sellers Make
Not Hiring a Professional Agent:
Selling a condo requires a particular skill set, with specialized experience and care to the details associated with condo living. I have been involved in the sale of more than a hundred condos, from townhomes to penthouses to micro-lofts. I know the particulars involved, from listing them correctly to selling them smoothly.
Not Knowing the Basics:
Is your condo a bareland condo or a conventional condo? Is your parking stall titled or assigned? What does your condo fee include? I will verify all of the crucial facts upon listing your condo.
Not Knowing the Building:
Is your building currently experiencing major problems, or is it a well-maintained condo? Some condos have a frightening record of issues from moisture and flooding to special assessments, and high condo fees. Others have an equally, frightening lack of foresight with too-low condo fees and little maintenance.
Not Being Prepared:
Did you know, by law condo management companies have up to 10 BUSINESS DAYS to provide condo documents, when most offers will only provide for 3-5 business days for delivery of documents? Don’t be left scrambling for documents at the last moment and risk losing a sale! We request that you order the condo documents at the same time as listing your condo and provide them for us to be as prepared as possible.
Not Using Technology:
I have all condo documents scanned to a Dropbox folder, so that I am able to provide them immediately upon my sellers accepting an offer. This is not only crucial for speeding up a sale, it is very useful for reference when there are questions about a building. Say goodbye to giant envelopes, wasted time driving, and worrying your documents will never be returned!
