One of the top reasons New York City dwellers decide to sell their homes is to move to something with more space. Rego Park co-ops are no exception. Do you fall into this category?
If so, you might be wondering who would want to buy your co-op. After all, it no longer meets your needs, so why would it meet anyone else’s?
Remember that your co-op met your needs in the past, but if you’re still not convinced, we understand! Here are four tips from the experts (aka “us”) to get your co-op ready to show well and sell fast!
- Hire a real estate agent who is on top of their co-op game.
Even in New York City, some real estate agents don’t have a lot of experience with co-op transactions. Partner with a professional who sells their fair share of Rego Park co-ops to get a competitive advantage during your sale.
- Use home staging techniques to make potential buyers fall in love with your co-op. Even a slightly cluttered space doesn’t show well in Rego Park. Pack up your picture frames, clear your countertops and do a deep cleaning before opening your door to potential buyers. A professional home stager who specializes in Rego Park co-ops will have additional suggestions to help you make your co-op more appealing.
- Create an illusion of more space.
This tip goes along with home staging, but it’s so game-changing in Rego Park co-ops that we put it in a class by itself. You can make space in your unit by removing unnecessary furniture or experimenting with different layouts. Again, a professional home stager or your real estate agent should be able to offer suggestions.
- Be a flexible seller.
A little flexibility can go a long way when selling your co-op. Whether that means being open to price negotiations or allowing last-minute showings, your willingness to accommodate buyers (within reason) will ultimately work in your favor.
