Preparing your Boston condo for sale {Easy Tips}

Are you thinking about selling your Boston North End condo or your Charles River Park condominium? If yes, it’s time to get moving and put your Boston downtown condo on the market while the weather is nice and the summer heat still hasn’t quite set in.  We realize this doesn’t give you much time, but we are here to help you move swiftly and effectively and get your Boston Seaport condo listed in the “prime time”. 

Before you list your Boston condo for sale, take a moment and read these few easy suggestions to get your home sell-ready in no time. Just follow these simple guidelines, work with an experienced downtown Boston condo broker, and sit back and watch as people clamor to get a look at your Boston condo for sale.

Slap on a coat of paint

There is nothing like fresh paint on the walls to liven up a Charles River Park condo for sale. Paint over the darker and more daring color walls and keep all walls a neutral hue. Painting is essential and makes a big difference in the first impression of a home.

Light bulbs, light bulbs, light bulbs

Stock up on light bulbs. Really stock up. When you show your Boston Beacon Hill condo, you want to keep all the lights and fixtures turned on. Trust us, the extra bulbs will come in handy.

Deep Clean

Think spring cleaning on steroids. Whether you decide to do it yourself, or you opt to hire a company, your Beacon Hill home needs to have a deep cleaning. If you do decide to take on this task yourself, get started now because there should be not a spec of dust in sight. The deep clean means scrubbing your bathrooms, toilets, and counter tops, vacuuming all floors and rugs and perfectly wiping down all surfaces. Be prepared to get down and dirty for this clean.


If you want to get your Beacon Hill condo for sale ready fast, there is no time to go through all your items. That is something you can do after your home is sold. Instead, find a storage unit close by and lock in a good rate. (Many times you can find great deals on the internet including a month free.) Move everything that is not needed and that is personal to the unit and put it out of your mind for the time being. The small investment in the storage is well worth the peace of mind.
