Selling your Malaysian condo on your own and unaided by a real estate agent is in a lot of ways different from selling your home on your own. And yet, in so many ways too, selling your condo FSBO (For Sale By Owner) are practically one and the same.
See some of KLCC condominium reviews database, the biggest difference lies mostly in the fact that selling your condo means having to sell the entire complex. It’s not about selling your front yardage; it’s not about selling a house that’s different from your neighbors – heck, you have to sell them something that looks practically like everything else within the building. It’s about selling what the entire complex offers, selling the charm that is city living, and practically convincing them that they’re better off having to pay monthly repair and maintenance fees and not getting the chance to do whatever they want with their unit.
Tips on Selling Your Condo
So, how do you effectively sell your condo without having to share your goods with a real estate agent? Here are some tips:
- Market your condo the way it was marketed to you. There’s no better nor easier way to market your condo other than the way the real estate developer marketed it to you. The truth is, your unit does not hold anything special against your next door neighbors. Unless you have the penthouse unit, you unit is a complete copy of the one next to it. So why make an extra effort on marketing it any other way? That saves you time and money.
- Don’t stress too much on ad presentation. You don’t have to have a hundred thousand photos of your unit taken; just one or two actual photos of your place will do. Grab one from your real estate developer and voila! You already have everything you need to market your place, including actual sizes! Everything else that your potential buyers would need are on the condo complex anyway so grab away (with permission and proper credits of course).
- Get your ads to focus on the perks of living in a Malaysian condo. That’s what condo buyers are looking for: what is in your condo complex that would make them want to buy it? So go ahead and market the rest of the complex – pool, sauna, regular maintenance (this is really essential since this would tell them how well maintained your place is), nursery services, etc – these will make it seem like the place is actually worth all the actual extra price of it.
- Focus on the good stuff about the area. People live in condos mainly because they want the comforts of living close to the city; so by all means take a photo of the city view from your bedroom, the close proximity between your condo and the supermarket and the kindergarten, etc.
- Get all the necessary papers for you to fully move out of the complex. There are potentially more things and more papers to consider and work on when you’re trying to let go of your condo than when you do with a house. There’s always the homeowners’ association for instance! And as with everything else, you have to make sure that all the financially related papers would be good and ready to go to avoid all hassles.
