Tips for Selling a Downtown Chicago Condo

Posted by Terri McAuley on Saturday, April 2nd, 2016 at 10:14am

It’s hard to imagine wanting to leave Downtown Chicago, but if you have a condo ready for market, we offer several tips to help you get the most for your investment. Even in today’s red hot sellers market, it’s not always easy selling a Chicago condo, so take a look at a few quick tips  before putting your unit on the market:

Price it right

Price is really important in selling a downtown condo because competition is fierce. You want to get attention right away from prospective buyers. Let your agent help lead you to the right price by comparing other similar properties in your area.

Minor repairs

Before you even show your condo, though, make sure you do a walk-thru and pinpoint the areas in which you need to make minor repairs. You don’t want something as simple as chipped paint to drive buyers elsewhere.

Clean it up

You’ll also want to make sure your condo is clean and tidy. Dirt and grime can really turn off potential buyers, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms.

Stage your home

Staging your home can be a great idea because it helps to give prospective condo buyers a way to visualize your home as their own. Make sure you take out excess clutter and box up your personal items, though, so the condo looks spacious and desirable.
