$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.

A critical factor in selling your condo

Here's an important tip for Eclipse sellers: After you are on the market, be sure to ask your Realtor to double-check that your garage shows up in the all-important MLS System Summary report.

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 home 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 at least 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 an Realtor can check this; you cannot!
