If You Only Have an Extra $100 in Your Wallet to Prepare Your Philadelphia Condo for the Market……

Filed under: Of Interest To Sellers,Real Estate: Condominiums — Center City Philadelphia Real Estate Agent @ 3:51 pm

Here is how I would hope you would spend it:
 
1) $5 for a big bottle of windex and a roll of paper towels
           Clean your windows. Let the sun shine in. Believe me when I tell you that your perspective buyers will notice!
 
2) $25 for new bathroom and kitchen caulk and misc. tools
           If you really want someone to run screaming from your home…show them the mold that is growing between your tub and the tiled wall in your bathroom
 
3) $20 for more cleaning supplies
           Dust your baseboards, clean caked on fingerprints off light switches, and use a cleaning product with bleach for your bathtub, shower floor, and sinks
 
4) $10 for replacing burnt out lightbulbs.
           Don’t limit yourself to the inside of your Philadelphia condominium. Exterior and hallway lighting is important as well, in order to give a bright clean appearance
 
5) $40 for Paint and Painting Supplies
           Touch up your front door, door jambs, stairway wall nicks and dings, and fill those holes where needed. A little goes a long way here…..
 
Again, touch up the glaring defects, or shortcomings that are going to have a tendency to cast a bad shadow over your home. More important than staging, or a new bathroom…..is cleanliness. Don’t underestimate the power of a clean, and touched up piece of Philadelphia real estate. It can do wonders for your condominiums image!
