1. Address - the Co-op had to be in one of several buildings that looked good from the outside, and had a good reputation in care and management.
2. Good photos - she was more inclined to view co-op if the pictures were bright and there were many of them.
3. Access - if we could not get into the apartment the first time she tried, she often moved on and did not return.
What did she buy and why? She choose not because the apartment had any open houses, was neat and tidy, or was free of clutter, but because of the building and views. She is re-modeling it, for she got it at a good price, and is very happy.
Every buyer and seller is looking for something different so my advice is have good photos, always have it accessible, and do not smoke in the apartment. If you are not getting showings, drop the price until you do.
When selecting a realtor, you have to feel comfortable with them and trust them. Like a good pair of jeans, you know when you try them on if they are a perfect fit.
Just remember, a Realtor can do a lot of things, educate the client really well, create the best brochure and ads
put your condo everywhere on the internet, open houses etc. and even suggest some staging and a brand new
deeper color on a wall or two, what a Realtor can not do is miracles especially in this mostly buyers market, more properties available than ready, willing and able buyers out there looking, those who are looking can select the best condo for least amount of money, that is just a fact.....
So if you want it to go fast you have to be under the current value to attract interest and it has to show in its best light, some paint, moving around or out of some furniture etc. etc. but Christopher below may just
be your MAN.
Good Luck to you!
