$elling an Eclipse Condo?

A big advantage: Parking space flexibility

If you have only one parking space, it will be an advantage if you can offer two spaces to prospective buyers. I have an extra parking space that we could offer to buyers who need two spaces.

If you have two parking spaces it could be to your advantage to offer only one. This could be especially important in negotiating with a buyer who does not want to pay your full asking price. In this event, I would buy your second space, and you could reduce your price accordingly.

Note: I have experience transferring parking spaces from one Eclipse unit to another.

Let 10,000 Realtors know that you do have a garage!

Here's an important tip for Eclipse sellers: Be sure to ask your Realtor to send you the MLS report titled Residential System Summary - Agent showing your condo, and double-check that a 1 or 2 shows up in the "Gar" column.

Entering a garage into the MLS is so tricky that up to 50% of our condos for sale with an existing garage, do not show it in this critical report. Consequently, a Realtor searching for a condo with a garage (a must-have item for many) will not even see your listing in their search results.

This can be a major problem even if your garage was "entered" into the MLS and might appear elsewhere in other reports or websites. Since well over 90% of homes are sold through the MLS, and the System Summary is the very first screen in Realtors' searches, showing your garage there is critical. Only a Realtor can check this for you; you cannot do it!
