The steps in the selling process:

Decide to sell  1. Decide to sell

Making the initial decision to sell your Atlanta condo or townhome can be a very difficult decision for you and your family. Whether you are looking to move into a bigger townhouse or downsize into a smaller condo, the selling process can be a very tedious task without the proper preparation and representation.

There are several factors to consider when you decide to sell, such as:

  • How soon are you looking to move?
  • Where are you looking to relocate?
  • What is your current estimated loan/equity ratio?
  • What do you anticipate you can get for your current home?
  • What are you looking to spend on your next Atlanta condo or townhome?
  • How long have you resided in your current home?
  • Do you have all of your paperwork associated with the bank mortgage, receipts from upgrades associated with your condo, and any other useful information that can be used toward your advantage when you file your income tax return?
When you have carefully weighed the pros to selling your condo, you are ready to look for a qualified realtor to represent you.

Select an agent  2. Select an agent

First and foremost, you need to select an experienced "Condo" agent to represent your best interests in selling your home. Selling Condos or townhomes is a totally different market than selling single family homes. There are separate Contracts, Seller Disclosures, Condo Docs and other various forms used for these "attached" homes and unless an agent is experienced in this area of sales you may not get the representation and knowledge you need to sell your condo. When selecting a real estate agent to sell your Atlanta condo, there are critical questions to ask to verify the credentials of your REALTOR® such as:

  • Is the person licensed as a real estate agent?
  • How dedicated and responsive will they be to your concerns?
  • What kind of success have they had in the past?
  • What are their real estate credentials?
  • How long have you been selling condos in the Atlanta market?
  • Can they provide current information about the actives, expireds and solds in my building?
  • Can you provide current statistics of what has been happening in the Atlanta condo market for the last 6 months and last 12 months?
  • What is it going to take to compete with the other units in my building?

You need a REALTOR® who can sell your Atlanta condo or townhome at the highest value in the shortest amount of time. The Condo Firm’s agents and brokers understand Customer Service and are focused on providing you with all the information you need in the selling process along with providing you the best Seller representation you desire.

Prepare to sell  3. Prepare to sell

The preparation of your Atlanta condo or townhome to sell can swing the price dramatically in your favor. It is vital that you have a qualified REALTOR® to represent you and maintain positive Customer Service.

Initially the research with you and your REALTOR® here at the Condo Firm will help you determine a fair market value for your condo. The research will show a comparison of condos that have sold within your complex, neighboring communities, and the area of Atlanta in which you reside. (whether it’s Buckhead, Midtown, Downtown, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Lindberg, Atlantic Station, Chamblee, Vinings, Smyrna, Norcross, Glenridge, Brookhaven, Druid Hills, or any other location). Macroeconomic factors also need to be considered in the initial research, such as shifts in mortgage interest rates and demand.

Next, it is a wise move to clean and de-clutter your Atlanta condo or home. This does not necessarily entail spending thousands of dollars on new appliances; however a fresh coat of paint, cleaning behind the cracks of the refrigerator, cleaning curtains, making sure all of your electrical sockets operate, patching up any plumbing, and adjusting the lighting so it’s bright and inviting all contribute to the experience of a prospective buyer. As is often said, the first impression is the lasting impression!
