Ready to sell your condo? Ultimately, listing a condo can be simple, particularly for condo sellers who plan ahead.

Now, let's take a look at three questions that condo owners need to consider before listing their properties.

1. What do I need to do to sell my condo?

Condo rules and regulations vary. As such, you should consult with your homeowners' association (HOA) to find out if there are any requirements related to selling your condo.

For example, an HOA may require a new property buyer to receive HOA board approval to purchase a condo in a particular community. Or, if you have outstanding condo fees, you probably will need to pay off these charges before you can sell your property.

2. How much is my condo worth?

Although your condo community likely hires landscapers to help keep your property looking great, it is important to understand that a condo's interior plays an important role in the property's value. Thus, you should allocate the necessary time and resources to upgrade your condo's interior. This will enable you to improve your condo's interior and help it stand out to property buyers, thereby increasing the likelihood of a quick condo sale.

In addition, completing a property appraisal usually is an excellent idea. A property appraiser will inspect your condo and evaluate various housing market data to help you pinpoint the value of your residence. Then, you can obtain a property valuation that can help you establish a competitive price for your condo.

3. Do I need to hire a real estate agent?

When it comes to selling a condo, it often pays to hire a real estate agent. However, it is important to note that no two real estate agents are identical, and you should try to find a real estate agent who possesses extensive condo selling expertise.

Let's face it – a condo is very different from a house. A condo owner does not have to worry about property exterior maintenance in the same way that a homeowner does. Conversely, a condo owner must follow HOA requirements; otherwise, this property owner may face steep penalties.

A real estate agent with condo selling expertise understands the pros and cons of owning a condo. Therefore, this housing market professional knows how to work with condo sellers and ensure these individuals can achieve their desired results.

Typically, a real estate agent will meet with a condo owner and learn about his or her property selling goals. After the meeting, a real estate agent will help a condo owner map out a successful condo selling journey.

Perhaps best of all, a real estate agent with condo selling expertise is ready to respond to a property seller's concerns and questions. This housing market professional also will go above and beyond the call of duty to exceed a condo seller's expectations.

Take the guesswork out of selling your condo – consider the aforementioned questions, and you can speed up the property selling process.

There are certain home disasters most of us would prefer not to think about. A house fire, a flood, or even a break-in are all some of a homeowner's worst fears. But being prepared for the worst is always the best choice in the long run. One of the most important things people lose in home disasters are their vital documents. If your documents are lost in a fire it will take a lot of time and money to replace them all. There are two main ways to insure the security of your documents: physically and electronically. However, neither method is 100% secured. Just as some safes can be broken, so can some electronic storage systems. In this article, we'll cover the documents you should secure and the latest and best ways to secure them.

What to secure

There are few things that are irreplaceable. Since most agencies you'll deal with in your life have your information backed up on their computer systems you probably can rest assured that your information is safe there. But for your own convenience and wallet, it's a good idea to secure the following documents and files:
  • Social security cards
  • Passports
  • Birth certificates
  • Insurance papers
  • Copies of wills
  • Legal papers
  • Vehicle titles
  • Hard drive with family photos, home movies
  • Medical information (doctors, prescriptions, etc.)

Buying a safe

Even if you tend to back up all of your documents in a secure place online, it's still a good idea to own a safe. Servers can crash and files can be hacked. Plus there are certain items that you can't back up online. Spare keys to your home, vehicles, and safety deposit boxes are all important items for your safe that won't take up much room. Similarly, family jewelry or heirlooms are also priceless additions that should fit nicely. When buying a home safe there are a few things to consider. Safes can range from under a hundred dollars to several thousands of dollars depending on factors like their size and security capabilities. You should look for a safe within your budget that is both fire and water resistant, but is also a practical size. If you're only protecting some documents and keys, you won't need a huge safe that will be difficult to move if need be. A benefit of a large, heavy safe is that it becomes difficult to steal from your home to break open elsewhere.

Protecting your data digitally

There are two ways of digitally security your items. One option is to use a flash drive and then keep that flash drive in a safe place (why not in the new safe you just purchased?). The benefit of a flash drive is that they are small and can hold huge amounts of data--multiple years of tax papers, for example. For an added layer of security on your flash drive, buy one with encryption capability. What's encryption?  Encryption is a method of securing data by making the information unreadable to those without the key. There are several types of encryption and many ways of encrypting your data online. Another, simpler option for securing your data online is to use cloud storage. Google Drive, iCloud, and Dropbox are all common cloud storage systems that incorporate encryption. However, not all cloud storage systems are created equally. Some are better for security, others are designed to be convenient and user-friendly. Whichever storage service you decide to use, it's important to be smart with your passwords. Make them complex, unique, and change them frequently to ensure the safety of your data.

The neighborhood that a house is located in is as important as the house itself. If you don't think so, consider what you'd feel like if you had to listen to neighbors fighting, cursing and swearing late into the night two or more times a week. Living around people who love to socialize is another potential drawback associated with buying a house in a bad neighborhood.

Strangers near your home is just the beginning when it comes to bad neighborhoods

People who love to socialize might force you to have to watch one stranger after another pull alongside the street, taking up yet another street parking spot that you,your spouse or adult child wanted to use, but never get home in time to park in. That's just the beginning of the problems that are linked with moving to a bad neighborhood that is home for one or more people who socialize on a large scale one or more times a week.

Parking space shortage is just the start of problems that are linked with living in the same neighborhood as outgoing people who feel the happiest when crowds of people are keeping them company at their home. Following are five more telltale signs that you're about to move to a bad neighborhood. Don't overlook these signs if you want to be happy in the neighborhood where you live.

  • Property disrespect - Using your household equipment like snow blowers and water sprinklers without asking or longer than they agreed to can lead to heated disagreements.
  • Untamed and aggressive pets - It's not safe if aggressive pets like large dogs are allowed to run off a leash throughout a neighborhood. Young children aren't the only people who could get injured. Aggressive pets can attack, jump, scratch or bite adults too.
  • Illegal activities - Drug dealing, prostitution and Ponzi schemes are types of illegal activities that occur in neighborhoods around America. These aren't the neighborhoods that you want to live in.
  • Cars parked in the area during work hours - See nearly the same amount of cars parked in a neighborhood during work hours as you see parked in the area at night and there's a good chance that adults in the community either work from home, part-time or are unemployed. If it's the latter, it might be a good idea to avoid moving in the neighborhood if people are unemployed simply because they don't want to work.
  • Lack of community - In bad neighborhoods residents may scarcely speak to each other which could lead to a feeling of isolation. Bad neighborhoods are also home to people who drag their neighbors in and out of civil court .

Recognize the five tell tale signs of a bad neighborhood to avoid at home dread

Relationships that you have with your family members who are moving with you to a new neighborhood are you're only current relationships that will go unchanged after you buy a house in a new part of town.  After you move, dozens of new people may enter your life at once.

Each of these people brings personality traits, hang ups and challenges, some more than others. That will happen regardless of the neighborhood that you move to. However, move to a bad neighborhood and the personalities, hang ups and personal challenges could cost you sleep, restfulness and peace of mind. Recognize the five tell tale signs of a bad neighborhood early. It could save you a lot of dread.
