Now is one of the best times to sell your Fort Lauderdale condo, the values are up and the inventory is very low, making buyers act quickly when condos come on the market. Fort Lauderdale is an extremely popular place to buy considering the incredible weather, boating, and access to all of the South Florida hot spots. If you are thinking of selling a condo there are a number of factors to consider. Below are the top three items to consider when listing your condo, if you are looking to sell your condominium but are unsure the value in today’s market, contact me directly!
1. Best Foot Forward: Features to Enhance. Condo buyers are looking for hassle free living, without the burdens of a single family home. Playing up the amenities such as fitness centers, bbq’s, business centers, and pools are a major selling point and should definitely be accentuated in selling.
2. Your Ideal Price, and Your Bottom Line: When setting a price for your condo you must consider the market and the reasonable asking price for your property. If you are serious about selling you must make your property competitive on the market. A competitive market price is determined by the other condos in the same line with the same amenities or at the very least very similar upsells. Conversely, if you are trying to sell your condo you should do a simple upgrade in terms of paint and removal of clutter.
3. Full Disclosure: If you have some items that are deficient in terms of the property value, disclose, disclose, disclose. Your discretion and honesty during the selling process is paramount to the close. Should there be something that a buyer would hesitate about, come clean about it, since it is generally public knowledge to begin with. Full Disclosure also applies to Assessments: It is also incredibly important that the seller is aware of any proposed assessments that may have been discussed or mentioned on the Board meeting agendas for the prior 12 months. Absentee owners who do not pay attention to important building mailings, must do their due diligence to find out from the office what is going on in the building; and properly disclose these discussed items to the listing agent and on the Condo Disclosure prior to listing the condo for sale.

As a full time dedicated, experienced Realtor in the Fort Lauderdale Luxury waterfront marketplace, one of my most sold buildings is The Berkley South Condominium. In the past 7 years, I have sold 77 properties in The Berkley South, and it continues to be one of the best values in the area. There are a total of 199 residences in The Berkley South, and it is located in the Central Beach Alliance neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale. Residences are moderately priced and ideal for those looking for second homes or first time home buyers. Residences are available in studio, one, and two bedroom configurations. If you are looking to sell your Berkley South listing there could not be a better time as the inventory is quite tight in Fort Lauderdale and there are only 7 available listings currently in the building.
More things to love about the Berkley South building is that it is investor friendly, it allows pets, and its close proximity to the beach. It is located within the well sought after Bayview Elementary School district and is very close to the most popular restaurants on the Intracoastal Waterway with water taxi pickup throughout the day, just south of Galt Ocean Mile. The lobby was recently remodeled and the amenities include 24 hour concierge, underground secure parking, heated freshwater pool and deck area, tennis court, fitness rooms, and much more. If you are looking to sell your Berkley South condominium, please contact me today for a market consultation!

One of the most common mistakes a realtor can make is not having a professional photographer take images of their listings. There are several reasons why professional photography is vital for the quick sale of a listing. Firstly, these images ultimately save time for sellers and buyers' agents from the get go, since they accurately represent a home. Some photography that agents will use is older photos of the home or shot from angles that make spaces appear larger than they are. In these instances buyers' agents will schedule a showing and effectively waste clients time, if the pictures were misleading. Second, professional photos will make your home look better and show it in the correct light, which will attract the correct buyer for the property.
I always advise my sellers to create a clean canvas as much as possible before the professional photographer shoots a property. Removing clutter, taking personal photos down, or art that is of a particular taste shows the property as someone else could envision it. Additionally, removing personal effects and miscellaneous clutter will make a space appear larger. The best time of day to photograph properties varies depending on what direction the home faces and the amount of natural light coming through the windows. If you are looking to sell your home or would like a consultation on what your home is worth, please contact me today!
