Selling your New Orleans Condo! Is it better to be furnished or unfurnished?

        It is always better to have your New Orleans condo tastefully furnished and decorated while it up for sale.  It just flat our makes the condo look and feel so much better.  Many buyers have little imagination and want to see what it will actually look like.  Staging your condo is very important in a competitive market.  It can and does get down to the little things.  It can save you thousands by spending hundreds.  Its your attractive choice.


         Having your condo in great shape makes sense as buyers are looking for that move in quality.  On that same wave length here are a couple of pointers when looking ofr ways to improve the feel.  Seeing and Smelling your condo in the best light is the goal.

1.   Make sure your condo is clean as possible Go ahead and have the condo professionally cleaned and completely wiped down.  Pay special attention to the bath and kitchen areas.  Make your condo shine!

2.   Remove the clutter  Let the Buyers see the condo not your junk or personnel items.  Put it somewhere else.  Its OK to rent a storage unit.

3.  Your pet may not be every buyers friend  Most buyers like pets but why take the chance to remove one from consideration.  The pet smells can be the biggest turn-offs to potential buyers.  These have to be deleted from the buyers lists of considerations.

4.  Let the light shine throughout –  Let the purchasers see the natural light.  Have the curtains open with seeing as much natural light as possible.  Make sure all the lights and bulbs are burning bright.

5.  Make the repairs that are needed !  If you know something needs fixed then fix it.  If something needs painted then get it painted.  A good listing agent will point these out to get your unit primed for sale. 

     Many times you will see people spend more time in preparing their car for sale than their condo.  How does this makes sense ?  One may be worth 20-30 times the value and deserves the same grooming and shining.
