You are getting to that point where you are ready to part ways with your NYC co-op/condomium. If you approach the sale with a lazy disposition, expect a purchase price no where near it’s true potential. If you approach the sale with the following three practices, you may very well enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you sold your listing for a price point close to it’s true ceiling.
Real estate is essentially sales. The cardinal rule of all sales is marketing. There are several ways to make sure your property is marketed properly. To start, are there any items that require repair? Consider making repairs prior to a viewing or an open house. For example, if there is a hole in the wall or the window is cracked, expect a potential buyer to pursue a lower purchase price to account for the repairs they’ll need to make. A prudent practice would be to touch-up the imperfections on your own. By addressing the issues head on, you can avoid that price drop the buyer is looking to capitalize on.
Nowadays, buyers are looking for homes that have a nice amount of open space. You can create a modern feel and that open space look in an apartment as small as 500 sq ft by implementing once simple strategy – minimalism. Rearrange your furniture and get rid of junk you don’t need. Buy a book on the topic if you need help.
Spread Good News
Has there been no maintenance increase or assessments in the last 10 years? Is there a brand new gym in your building? Is there a great dog park less than a block away? Do you have some inside info that would make your building irresistible? Make sure your broker is privy to this information so she can relay it to potential buyers.
Any intangibles that make your apartment more appealing, spread that good news to everyone. Sometimes letting people know how quiet your nieghrbors are or how many great kids there are in your building for potential playdates of a young family can be the tipping point which gets a buyer on the fence straight to your attorneys office for a closing.
