When selling a condo in London Ontario and to get good results, first impressions make a significant impact on a buyer’s decision-making process!

Once your condo goes is listed on MLS, it becomes a product. Home Styling simply allows you to highlight the best of your condo and de-emphasize its flaws. It’s not about decorating, but actually turning your home into a model, to appeal to the broadest range of prospective buyers. The goal is to make people feel like they could live there, and the best way to do this is to “neutralize” the surroundings.

  • De-personalize the home by removing photos, mementos, and dated items.
  • Use plants in colorful pots or inexpensive wicker baskets to fill in empty spaces.
  • Try angling one or two pieces of furniture slightly and move furniture 4 inches to 6 inches from the wall to create more interesting room spaces.
  • Put away large collections— porcelains, plates, and so on.
  • Remove valuables, prescription medicine, collectibles, and breakables.
  • Refrain from cooking anything that leaves a distinctive odour, such as fish, garlic, or cabbage.
  • Hire a professional service to clean the home, including the carpets and the windows.
  • Set the dining room table with attractive linens, dishes, and stemware.
  • A mirror in a pretty frame can make a small room feel more open.
  • Use as much natural light as possible. Add extra lamps in dark rooms or corners.
  • Make functional repairs—fix dripping faucets, sticking doors, lightbulbs

Why Not Own a London Ontario Condo?

Why not own a London Ontario condo, especially if you are paying rent over $850 per month!

Have you been renting your place for long?  If so, you have probably become intimately familiar with the disadvantages of being a tenant:  increasing rents, odours, uncorrected maintenance problems, and unsympathetic landlords.

Sound familiar?

Why, then, are you renting?  Others who have just purchased their first house or condo tell me they rented for three basic reasons:

  1. Lack of down payment money.
  2. Fear of not being able to qualify for a mortgage.
  3. Uncertainty of the benefits of home ownership.

As homeowners today, or should I say condo owners, they now realize their fears were groundless.  There are many mortgage options available and with today’s low interest rates, monthly payments, condo fees and taxes can be lower than the rent you are currently paying!

Does that not make sense?

If you want to own your own house or condo, call me today at 519-435-1600 or drop me an email, I will be happy to explain the benefits and make arrangements for a prequalification telephone or face to face interview with a mortgage lender or two.  They will be able to guide you and make recommendations so that you will be able to buy, even if it is 3-6 months from now.

Then, with your questions answered, and knowing where you stand, you will be free to make your house or condo buying dreams come true!
