Trying to sell my condo..

by on Apr.08, 2010, under Uncategorized

I am trying to sell my condo (Virtual Tour here: Asking 469K if interested) and it is NOT an easy process.
We’ve spent the last 3 weeks living in effectively a hotel room. At any time, a Realtor can call and ask to show the place to a customer.. so we need to be ready to walk out and have the house look like it does in the pictures. So annoying.
On top of that.. we started with lots of folks visiting, and it has severely tapered recently, which would be fine, except no offers yet. (and all the complaints as to why there are no offers are things we can’t change, of course)
So frustrating.. though at least my Realtor is super nice.. so I have faith, we’ll get there.. just wish I knew when.

The fun of Housing

by on Feb.22, 2010, under Uncategorized

So, we have made the official decision to place our condo on the market. This is, quite obviously, a big deal.
We met with a realtor, he gave us some estimates as to what our condo should sell for, coupled that with what I owe.. and told us the profit/loss at each level. (Level = we sell for the bottom we think, middle, or top dollar). Based on this, and our incomes, we can then figure out what we can afford.
So.. I have a perfectly wonderful loft.. exposed brick, 5 skylights, polished concrete floors and the like, in a building where my dog is welcome and I have been made to feel very welcome.. so why am I leaving?
Well.. we have decided that some doors would be nice.. as would some extra bedrooms so that when family/friends decide to stay, we don’t have to give up our bed or have them stay in the back room. Plus with my working from home, having a door I can close when someone else is home would be great. (Was part of this decision made due to Michelle’s 9 day Snow-cation at home? Mayyyyybbbbeeeee ;)
So.. where we stand now is working towards “staging” the condo, then scheduling some open houses and the like.. and hoping for the best.
Keep your fingers crossed for us!
