Why do I have to show a condo in a well run condo building, to see trash strewn about the front sidewalks? Why do the elevator doors have graffiti scratched into the paint? And why are there light bulbs out in the common hallways?
But I do. From the bicycle tire marks on the common hallway walls, to front doors which DO NOT shut and latch properly. THIS IS MANAGEMENT 101 here folks. A buyer’s impression of your Philadelphia loft or condo is, by many accounts formulated prior to the buyer stepping foot into your unit. Especially if that buyer has to endure a smelly elevator, a dark hallway, and the neighbors personal effects sitting outside their door. Condo rules are there for a reason, and sometimes it is up to that particular Philadelphia condominium association to be the bad guy, and enforce those rules. The lasting effect is a much improved perception of the building by those buyers looking to potentially purchase within that building. And hopefully, a quicker resale and possibly a higher resale price.
