Your Center City Condo can’t sell because your picked a crappy Management Company

Filed under: Center City Real Estate,Of Interest to Buyers,Of Interest To Sellers,Real Estate: Condominiums — Center City Philadelphia Real Estate Agent @ 4:20 pm

Your front Center City Condo doorman is kinda’ rude, he has no real training, and your management company is charging your buyer $200 to answer routine questions that should be listed in your condo docs, or on your resale certificate. Oh, and there is a dirty mop bucket inside one of your broken elevators which sits wide open in the lobby, with the lights off.Ā  WAY TO MAKE A GREAT IMPRESSION ON POTENTIAL BUYERS!

Oh, and did I mention that your management company rep won’t return my phone calls, and takes 3 weeks to get me condo docs?? And your common hallways smell icky, and they need cleaning (my buyers parents can see the dust accumulation on the hallway baseboards from about a mile away). Oh, and in addition to charging your future potential buyer money to ask questions, they are going to charge him or her $300 to assemble a standard set of paperwork that is required for you to sell your Philadelphia condo. Then they have to pay a $250 move-in fee. AND YOU DON’T HAVE A CLUE.

Perhaps you need to look into this. Then do something about it. Because my buyer isn’t made of money, but it appears your management company is making money hand over fist. Oh, and the lack of training of your doorman? BLAME YOUR MGMT COMPANY.

Then blame your condo board for not objecting to this shortcoming! If you think my buyers aren’t going to notice…you are WRONG.
