The Richmond condo market has never been hotter. With so many new developments and different options and choices on the condo market, now has never been a better time to either buy or sell. All of these choices and developments have made the market very competitive but many great deals are still available. If you are thinking about putting your condo on the market, here are some staging tips that will help you get full value for your property.
Depersonalize Your Space
Even though the Richmond condo market is quite hot right now, it is essential that when you put your condo on the market it is as depersonalized as possible. This means that you need to properly stage your condo in order to make it more appealing to proper buyers. A depersonalized condo allows potential buyers to see themselves in your space instead of seeing how you have decided to use the space. This depersonalized and properly staged condo is a condo that will sell quicker, as the buyers will want to move in as soon as possible!
Less is More
When you are staging your condo, remember, less is more. Try to unclutter your condo and use as little furniture as possible. Remember, you want to present your condo with as much empty space as possible. This will not only allow any potential buyer to see your condo’s full potential but it will also give them a better idea of the floor space and the overall layout of your condo.
Spend Money to Make Money
Before putting your condo on the market have a look around and see if everything is in good shape and good working order. This includes any screens on your windows, door handles, latches and cupboards. Sometimes, you will have to spend money to make money. A newer, well looked after condo will sell quicker on the market; and remember that you will get all of your money back in the asking price.
One particular area that you should address before putting your condo up for sale is the paint on your walls. A quick paintjob of your condo’s walls will make your home that much more appealing to potential buyers. If you are repainting, think about a neutral colour such as tan or grey. Do not use bold or dark colours on your walls as they may be ideal for living, but they are not ideal when it comes to selling your condo.
Give Your Bathroom Some Love
Show your bathroom some love. Another item that you should replace before putting your home on the market is your shower curtain. This is a relatively inexpensive purchase but it will make a huge difference when it comes to showing your bathroom. Again, try to find a curtain that is as neutral as possible and has an appealing design.
Remember, a well-staged condo is a sold condo. It is important to properly stage your condo so that it is appealing to a larger audience.
