5 Things to Know About Selling Your Boston Condo

Boston’s real estate market is beyond competitive, but that doesn’t mean simply listing your property guarantees an easy sale. Every type of home, from single-family houses to triple-deckers, has a unique set of challenges and selling points to consider. And while selling your condominium may seem like a breeze, there are several things to keep in mind.

Hire an expert.

Adam Geragosian, a real estate agent with Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty, says, “The best possible advice I can give is to hire a reputable agent for purchase or sale. Having experienced representation through the biggest investment of your life will help make sure you come out on the good side of a real estate story.”

He adds that to be competitive, you must choose an agent who has expertise in your market and who has the numbers to back up the marketing strategy he or she is proposing.

Ted Pietras, an agent with Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty, says it’s important that condos are appropriately priced, even in this hot market. “Overpriced homes still sit for a while and need reductions after two to three weeks if they’re not sold by then,” he says. “If it’s very overpriced, then you’ll get no offers, and it will sit. Pricing in the reasonable range will help to get possible multiple offers and even get over the asking price.”

If a condo is overpriced, it can result in multiple price reductions, which is not ideal. It can drag the process out and end up wasting everyone’s time.

Geragosian agrees, saying, “Buyers are far too educated right now to pay for something that is overpriced.”

The Most Inspiring Interior Design Of 2018

We went down the lane, by the body of the man in black, sodden now from the overnight hail, and broke into the woods at the foot of the hill. We pushed through these towards the railway without meeting a soul. The woods across the line were but the scarred and blackened ruins of woods; for the most part the trees had fallen, but a certain proportion still stood, dismal grey stems, with dark brown foliage instead of green.

On our side the fire had done no more than scorch the nearer trees; it had failed to secure its footing. In one place the woodmen had been at work on Saturday; trees, felled and freshly trimmed, lay in a clearing, with heaps of sawdust by the sawing-machine and its engine. Hard by was a temporary hut, deserted. There was not a breath of wind this morning, and everything was strangely still. Even the birds were hushed, and as we hurried along I and the artilleryman talked in whispers and looked now and again over our shoulders. Once or twice we stopped to listen.

After a time we drew near the road, and as we did so we heard the clatter of hoofs and saw through the tree stems three cavalry soldiers riding slowly towards Woking. We hailed them, and they halted while we hurried towards them. It was a lieutenant and a couple of privates of the 8th Hussars, with a stand like a theodolite, which the artilleryman told me was a heliograph.
