How important in $ is floor level in a bldg? How to translate into $, 9th flr vs. 19 flr. same unit?
The higher the floor the more valuable the unit. Use about $2K as a basis for each floor. So 9th floor would be $20K less than a 19th floor unit.

Best ways to sell condo
Reach out to a few agents to interview and see who you feel would be the best fit for you. On average using an agent will net you more than selling it yourself.

Mike Opyd answered:
If I plan on paying cash for a property, how soon at the earliest would I need access to my funds after putting my bid in?
Id have it lined up quickly since cash usually has a closing within a few weeks. Speak to your agent about what the process looks like and when the money should be made available.
