Even though the pandemic keeps us inside most of the time, in-person Beacon Hill or Back Bay condo sales still happens. As we get ready for the next cold snap . . which we know will come. The weather in February can be in the single digits or even below zero.
1. Leave some lights on so brokers don’t walk into dark Boston high rise condo
2. Remove the snow and ice from the walkway. Clearing the walkway makes it less likely that someone seeing your home will slip and fall on the ice and maybe decide to sue.
3. Place a walk-off mat near the front door that is big enough for four pairs of shoes. This small act of kindness will keep my feet dry because I won’t end up standing in a puddle made by my clients and it will keep your floor dry and your home cleaner.
4. If your Charles River Park condo is vacant please have it winterized, that means that you have the water turned off.
5. Lighting in a Beacon Hill home is a good thing, especially in the winter. You want to make it look warm and inviting. If you normally live like cave people with every blind drawn and every shade pulled consider making some changes so that your home will sell quicker and so you will get more money for it.
6. If your home is occupied and you have a burglar alarm and maybe some barbed wire and a guard dog consider easing up on the orange alert status and make your home more welcoming. (this tip applies any time of year)
2. Go to the restroom before you begin downtown Boston real estate viewing.
3. If you are interested in a Boston condo for sale that you saw in the dark please schedule an appointment to see it when it is light out before you make an offer.
4. Most downtown Boston real estate agents carry a flashlight but it is a great idea to bring your own or if your cell phone can provide enough light.
