Lincoln Park Condo Sold in 23 Days

I sold this condo in 23 days. It's at 2700 N Halsted where several other one bedrooms were on the market. Each time I meet with a client on a listing appointment, I map out what needs to be done within reason to attract showings and compel someone to write and offer.

For instance, in some case where the unit is empty and we want top dollar, I'll recommend staging the condo. This can cost $1,500 to $5,000 for an empty condo depending on the size and scope of the design.

Which condo would you look at?

Or this one?

In this case... the before and after are reversed. The lower photo is with my client's furniture in the unit. All I had to do with this place was re-paint the bath and fix some drywall to list it. The first photo is from my walk through with the buyer before heading to their closing. The unit was already under contract and my clients moved out.

Imagine if they were trying to sell it empty?
