Working for a quality real estate investment company, I’ve been able to show prospective condominium buyers beautifully decorated and furnished condo homes. Buyers will come in to inquire about the project and the condo availability and I help them become familiar with the project, it’s benefits and show them the model condos so they can get a clear picture of how beautiful the homes can be when they buy them.

It’s so much fun to see how buyers are “wowed” when they first see the condo models! The models are finished with new, first class standard finishes; new wood cabinets and hardwood flooring from Decora in cherry, maple or walnut in the living and dining area and porcelain bathroom flooring and tub surround and elongated Kohler toilet in the bathroom. The beautiful hardwood flooring and cabinetry, combined with rich granite counter tops, new appliances in stainless steel and elegant lighting fixtures stimulate a warm and luxurious look and feel in the condo home.

Condominium Model properties offer the standard finishes and additional value because they come with extra features that are often included in the price at no additional charge; features like custom paint and mirrored closet doors, track lighting, pendant lighting, closet organizers and sometimes even more! Condo sellers I have worked for usually will hold off on selling the model properties until the end of the project so they can use the models to show and sell the available units.

Now is an excellent buyers market! Interest rates are at a historic low and there are great opportunities in valuable home purchase.

Model purchases can offer an even higher value for buyers who are looking now and some resale real estate agents say having a model unit will offer potential higher resale marketability which could mean more $$ for you at closing!

If you’re considering buying a real estate model, you’re in for a treat!
