Selling your Barrie Home

Everyone knows how kind and friendly Barrie neighbours can be. There are also, however, neighbours that can be quite a problem. Perhaps the neighbours are fond of keeping junk piled up on their front lawn and around every single available space they have. Whatever the case may be, always realize that neighbours can and most definitely will have an either positive or negative effect on potential homebuyers. Here is some info that you should keep in mind if you are thinking about selling your Barrie home when your neighbours are less than ideal.

 


 

 

Dealing with problem neighbours

 

Dealing with the problem means coming face to face with the neighbours. Always be kind and respectful as they do live nearby and are quite capable of making your life worse. When a problem arises with a neighbour, try to see things from their perspective and work things out.

 

Very often issues that could have been resolved quietly and peacefully develop into large fights that go back and forth simply because one person decided to be rude. Even if emotions are flying high and the neighbour’s dog dropped a surprise on the front lawn once again, take a minute to collect your thoughts and feelings before approaching the source of the problem.

Selling a Barrie city condo is much different than selling a house. There is a different target market that needs to be addressed and a lot of special things that need to be pointed out as selling features.

If you are selling a house, one of the things that may be mentioned is the yard and what it has to offer. If there is a large backyard with a beautiful garden, for example, this would be a highlighted feature of the home. A condo is not going to have a yard but may have special features of its own on the grounds. It may have a beautiful common garden where the condo owners settle after a hard day at work for some socializing. It may also have a pool that attracts a lot of children, which would make this condominium seem very attractive to families.  Read the rest of this entry
