A condo can be a great resource in expanding your property search for a home. Condos allow the same benefits of traditional single family home ownership with slightly less hassle. If you have been juggling the idea of buying a condo versus a traditional home, you may be in luck. The first thing you should worry about is whether or not your needs will actually be met by condo living. Do you want a big yard? Are you comfortable having neighbors super close by? Most importantly, you need to make an informed decision that will help you to find the kind of property that’s right for you.


The Advantages


If you want a secure space and living that provides you with easy upkeep, a condo is really a great option. Condos provide many advantages that people may have not even thought of until now. 


Great Amenities


Condo living has different perks than that of traditional homes. Your condominium complex can include things like a swimming pool, a clubhouse, community events, tennis courts, fitness centers, and more. You won’t get all of these little extras living in a single family home. It can be a great environment for both single people and families alike.    


Security


Condos often offer either a gated community or security staff on the premises. These features allow you to feel a lot more secure in your home environment. Security will keep rowdy kids from roaming the property and only allow owners and their visitors. This feature alone may be worth it for many home buyers when shopping for a place to live.   


No Maintenance


If you’re the type of person who doesn’t enjoy yard work and is not a DIYer, condo living could be for you. Included with your condo fees is the ability to have different things in and around your home taken care of. Although the fees include different extras from place to place, Living in a condo is definitely less work as far as home care goes than a traditional house.


Price


Although condos do include additional fees, the price point of most condos is much lower than that of a traditional home. If you are just starting out, a condo is a great way to ease into homeownership without needing to save up an exorbitant amount of money for a downpayment.


The Disadvantages


While condo living has many different advantages, they do carry some disadvantages for people. These include:


  • HOA Fees
  • Lack of privacy
  • A difficult sell if you want to move
  • You live under management rules



These points can be deal breakers for some buyers. While many relish their freedom from maintenance responsibility, others just want to do as they please with their yard without needing approval. A condo could be a great choice for you in your own situation, you just need to step back and look at the pros and cons.

Adding a condo to the housing market may seem difficult at first. Lucky for you, real estate agents can help you streamline the process of listing your condo, stirring up interest in your property and ensuring you can maximize its value.

What does it take to find the right real estate agent to sell your condo? Here are three questions that you should ask a real estate agent before you hire this professional to sell your condo:

1. Have you sold condos in the past?

When it comes to selling a condo, it is always better to err on the side of caution. Therefore, you may want to consider hiring a real estate agent with condo selling experience over a real estate professional who exclusively sells homes.

A real estate agent with condo selling experience may be able to offer insights that you won't receive elsewhere. For example, this real estate professional may be able to provide tips to help you enhance your condo without the risk of violating homeowners' association (HOA) rules.

Plus, a real estate agent with condo selling experience will understand how to manage home selling challenges that may arise. This housing market expert will be able to address such challenges quickly and limit their impact on the condo selling process.

2. What approach will you take to sell my condo?

As a condo seller, your goal is to sell your condo as quickly as possible and ensure you can get the best price for your property. Meanwhile, you should find a real estate agent who shares your goal and will do everything possible to promote your residence to the right groups of property buyers.

Initially, a real estate agent should learn about your condo selling needs. He or she will listen to your condo selling concerns and ensure you are fully supported throughout the condo selling cycle.

A real estate agent should be ready to promote your condo in a variety of ways too. From social media posts that highlight the size and beauty of your condo to open houses that enable property buyers to check out your residence, a real estate agent should go above and beyond the call of duty to showcase your condo.

3. Why should I hire you?

No two real estate agents are identical, and as such, you're sure to hear lots of different responses to this question. Consider a real estate agent's answer closely, and if you are satisfied with the response, you may want to move forward with this housing market professional.

For home sellers, it is essential to collaborate with a real estate agent who makes you feel comfortable. This real estate professional will communicate with you regularly and keep you informed at each stage of the home selling process. As a result, you'll never be left in the dark as you move closer to selling your condo.

Ready to sell your condo? Use the aforementioned tips, and you can hire a great real estate agent to help you simplify the condo selling process.
