I think it looks great! I would recommend taking out the extra sofa that is kind of under the island – looks smushed in there and gives the idea there isn’t enough room – which it totally looks like there is so I’d remove that piece of furniture!

I agree with @MrsApple414: about taking out the extra sofa, if possible. The only other thing that caught my eye was the window treatment in what I think is the master bedroom – the room might appear brighter without it?

Another thing…I think I need to move there! I would buy your condo in two seconds flat!

If you can, I would change the order of the pictures and put your favorite photo that actually showcases the unit first, rather than the exterior (I’d go with the kitchen, since it seems pretty spacious for a condo and like it was nicely renovated recently)  Personally, I’m very critical about the exterior of buildings, and if I don’t really like the outside, I don’t always even click through the listing.  Granted, I’m jut casually looking and not a serious buyer, but just a thought.

You have a great condo! My suggestions:

Remove a lot of the furniture and take new photos. Even though the place is tidy there’s too much covering the walls (furniture, wall decor, window treatments). To the buyer can appear cramped. Also, the dark shower curtains make the bathrooms appear smaller.

I agree with PP and also removing one of the items in the entry hallway-two looks cluttered and being on opposing walls it looks liek you’d have to zig zag around them. I would also attempt to remove the dresser from the laundry room and organize it abit. Everything else looks great-neutral colors, minimal decor, etc. Good luck!

Also-shouldn’t your realtor know how to sell the house? Isn’t that why he’ll take a commission. I would be questioning him as to what the issue is.

@MissPine:  I agree! The condos available in that price range around here are horrible. You have quite a nice place. I agree about the window treatments and the couch.

Ooh, that’s really nice. I don’t think I would ever buy a condo, but that’s a nice price, and the pictures make it look lovely. I’m always astounded at the crappy pictures people take of the homes they’re trying to sell, but it looks clean and the pictures show all of the spaces, from what I can tell.

I definitely agree with @MrsApple414 and @abbie017‘s suggestions. Also, if you can, put in the total sq footage of the place?

I agree with MrsApple about the sofa, but other than that I think it looks great! I would totally want it if I lived in PA. 🙂

Agreed about removing furniture – you want the place to look staged, not lived in. Anything that doesn’t match shouldn’t be in the photos.

Can you include a floorplan as one of the pics?

Also, I didn’t see the sq footage listed on the page, which surprised me. Maybe I missed it?

One more thing I’d do is remove some of the stuff off the kitchen counters.  The rule of thumb that I’ve always heard is no more than 2-3 things sitting out in the kitchen.

I agree about the sofa, but in general there is quite a bit of furniture in there its not cluttered or anything. But I tried to look at the listing as a condo I would buy (I am currently house hunting) and for me personally it was kind of hard for me to picture my own things in there because its already fully decorated in your style (not just basic generic items).

It’s crazy but people love things bare because they can imagine what they want . Even If its tidy, clutter and personal items seem to deter people heavily!

I guess Id also be curious about your competitors pictures ( or the other condos for sale) .Do they have laminate throughout? Different style in decorating? Are they vacant? Are they a mess?

I agree about the sofa and I would also take down all the stuff up above your kitchen cabinets, get rid of one of the pieces in the entry way and reorganize the Laundry room.
