Your London Condo Corporation & Selling Your Condo

When thinking about selling your condo in London Ontario, besides the price and whom you select to represent you, you may want to get in touch with your London Ontario condo corporation before you list it on MLS.

checklist when selling a condo in London Ontario

99% of the time, if you and the buyer agree on price, there will be a condition clause that states that the buyer’s lawyer will have 7-10 days to review the status certificate provided by the condo management company.

The buyer’s lawyer is looking at the financial status of the corporation, to see if there are any unpaid condo fees or assessments from you, if there are any infractions, such as a screen missing, an unauthorized addition such as a deck, satelite dish etc.

You would be surprised at the amount of hasty remedies, discussions that occurs if a lawyer finds out some things that you were not aware of.

To ensure a smooth sale, take the time and effort to find out if there are any issues that could effect the final sale of your condo in London Ontario.

The above step is only one of many we take to help our client’s sale go smoother with less headaches and no surprises!

It is the professional way

A Poor London Ontario Condo Decision?

This complex is located right across from Masonville Mall and bordres on Richmond St and Sunnyside. Over the years these 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units have been sought after because of the location, price and the proximity to The University of Western Ontario.

The 4 buildings at Masonville Gardens were in need of updating, be it the windows, lobbies, roof, electrical, facade and eliminating the wood fireplaces and restructuring the balconies and excavating the foundation around all 4 buildings.

Jacksway Court troubles

The complex will look great when completed however, right now there is a legal quagmire, see this link here in The London Free Press.

There have been some sales over the past year or two and I have talked a few buyers from buying these, especially investors and parents for their children. What amazes me the most are the buyers who have purchased in there without getting a status report or their lawyers not thoroughly reviewing the report and allowing their clients to buy!

An experienced professional Realtor would know about troubled condo corporations, the history and the challenges. That is not to say those challenges could not be overcome by a professional, (there is always a way), yet people make poor choices when spending $1000’s of dollars because they will not listen or allow their bravado to overcome common sense.

Buying a London Ontario Condo?

In a recent survey, the biggest and most costly error home buyers make is how they start the process of buying a home in London.

Usually the first step is deciding you want to move,  to stop renting or downsizing from a larger house. All good so far.

searching to buy a condo in London

Then, most will go and talk to a good mortgage lender( this is a major and crucial step and be careful whom you talk to, I cover that in another report) to see if you qualify and for how much. How much of a down payment and what would your average payments be. Again, you are on the right track.

Then what?

Yup, most start searching the MLS listings, Kijiji, real estate websites and real estate magazines (that are usually a month late) and what do they do? Call 4 or 5 real estate sales people who have listings they want to see and set up an appointment.

While making those appointments you hear the same thing:

  • Are you preapproved for a mortgage?
  • Are you working with an agent?
  • Do you have a house to sell?
  • Perhaps a few more personal questions or the name of your cat or dog!

Questions about buying a home in London Ontario

Then you go see a few homes, if you like one you may put in an offer with the listing sales person  without any research or thought of the long term consequences.

Or, the homes you have seen are not to your liking, but you like the sales person and they convince you that they can help you look for something else, again, without any research of that agent or thought of the long term consequences!

The wisest thing you can do after you have made the decision you want to move, is to research and contact the real estate sales person who has the skills and experience and whom you will entrust your hard earned money to!

Maybe interview two or three.

Then when you have confidence in the sales person you have chosen, that good real estate person will research properties on your behalf, make appointments to match your time table, protect you in the buying and offer process and be there if any challenges come up.

Do you not think that having that type of representation would be better for you than just entrusting that binding faith with just anyone? A friend of a friend, Uncle Joe’s distant cousin who just got her license and needs some money, or your co-worker who’s husband ‘does’ real estate on the side!

How To Get Results When Selling a Condo in London Ontario

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.

Sell at a Top Value Prepare Before Selling
Try out these helpful styling tips that out team of professionals use. Things you can do for little or no expense—to put a condo in prime showing shape.

  • Clear out closets and clutter—sellers can give away or pack up toys, linens, and small kitchen appliances to store offsite. Buyers are also forgiving of storage boxes neatly tucked away in a garage or basement.
  • Focus most on the most visible areas—the foyer, kitchen, living room, master bedroom, and family room.
  • 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

12 Tips To Sell Your London Ontario Condo

Even though houses in London Ontario are selling quite well,  36% of London Ontario condos and houses listed in the London area take over 60 days to sell or not sell at all!

To maximize your home’s selling price there are steps you can take to ensure that your home sells quicker, reducing stress and maintaining some control of one of your largest financial decisions in your lifetime.

Home not selling

Keep the reason you are selling to yourself and your Realtor.

Do not reveal your motivation for selling to anyone else because they may use it against you at the negotiating table. When asked, just say that your housing needs have changed.

Different goals will dictate different strategies.

What is more important to you: the money you walk away with or the length of time your property is on the market or both?

3 Do your homework before setting a price.

The average buyer will look at 15-20 homes at the same time they are looking at yours. That buyer will now have a basis of comparison, and if your home does not compare favorably with others in the price range, your home may sit on the market for a longer time.

More Homework.

 (A good Realtor should do this for you) Find out what homes in your neighbourhood have sold for in the last 6-12 months, and research what current homes are listed for. That is how a prospective buyers and their Realtor will assess the worth of your home.

Maximize your home’s sales potential.

You may not be able to change your home’s location or floor plan, but you can do a lot to improve its appearance. The look and feel of your home generates a greater emotional response than any other factor.

101 Ways To Sell Your House in London Ontario

Deciding upon a Realtor

You and your Realtor are partners in marketing your home. Choose carefully and wisely.

Make it easy for buyers to get information on your home.

Buyers calling for information on your home value their time as much as you do. They also do not want to be hassled or frustrated because they cannot get a hold of the listing Realtor or some of the information is incorrect.

Do not move before you sell.

Studies have shown that it is more difficult to sell a home that is vacant because it looks forlorn, forgotten and simply not appealing. As well, buyers may think because it is empty, you are motivated to sell fast and for a lower dollar.

Deadlines create a serious disadvantage.

Don’t try to sell by a certain date. This adds unnecessary pressure and is a serious disadvantage in negotiations.

10 Keep emotions in check.

Do not be offended by a low offer or certain demands from the buyer. A good listing salesperson can turn these negatives into a positive situation.

11 Be a smart seller- disclose everything.

Be proactive, by disclosing any problems or defects you are giving the buyer confidence that you are not hiding anything.

12 Make sure the contract is complete.

Ensure that all terms, conditions and responsibilities are spelled out in the offer and that you fully understand them.

.do not sign anything without checking first

All the above steps , though simple and easy to do, are not often done, perhaps because they are so simple and easy to do.

From experience, my clients have commented that thoroughness in getting their house sold and the systems I use were outstanding! (Their words, not mine!)
