If you have to sell don't wait, list your condo--who knows what tomorrow will bring. Why not contact a few realty offices, interview some agents and choose the one you like best--you need to be aware of recently sold similar properties in the immediate in order to determine a fair listing price--the information is free--without looking at the data first, too early to determine any loss/gain.
