Selling Your Twin Cities Condo? Don’t Overlook the Little Things
Sometimes it’s the subtle things – nice people next door, the flow of morning sunlight, a friendly café or fresh-baked bread at the local market – that help to make a condo or loft a home. Tell prospective buyers about more than square feet and school districts.
You know your downtown Minneapolis or St Paul condo best. So, you’re in the position to convey its special elements to buyers. Here’s some inspiration to think like the buyer who will fall in love with your space.
Sunlight and Warmth
Do your south-facing walls have windows? Does your loft or condo have a particularly brilliant sunrise or sunset view? That’s an asset that doesn’t appear in the estimates. Yet it’s priceless to anyone choosing among multiple Twin Cities condos and lofts.
Perhaps your fireplace recently passed inspection, and a local market has firewood, inexpensive and plentiful. Or your gas fireplace is energy efficient. Convey that joyful fact to home buyers.
The Value of Community
The recipe for the best downtown St Paul and Minneapolis condo living? There’s a “secret ingredient”: midwestern friendliness.
If you’ll miss them when you go, be sure prospective buyers know how wonderful your neighbors are. You have a community to offer, not just a living space.
Low Energy Bills – and Low-Stress Shopping
It goes without saying, but say it! Especially if your condo is tucked between other units, your low heating and AC outlay is a major, money-saving benefit.
And you may save fuel and eating healthy at the same time, thanks to your local urban farmers’ market. Are there special groceries and business owners you love at the local market? Let the buyer imagine shopping not as a chore, but as the joy you’ve come to know.
Downtown St Paul offers Lowertown First Fridays, with open galleries and street fests. And with downtown Minneapolis city living offering green space and high marks for fitness, your condo offers plenty of lifestyle inspiration.
Let us help you sell by conveying the simple pleasures the buyers otherwise overlook.
