4 Interior Design Issues That Make People Want to Sell Their Luxury Condos

Real estate agents are capable professionals who can sell all sorts of properties. They make life a lot easier for their clients. From dealing with buyers and assessing them, to handling legal paperwork, realtors will do it all. They are never afraid of taking on a harsh real estate deal. Yet, when someone calls in and says, β€œI want to sell my Santa Monica condo because I do not like the interior,” they do feel a bit hesitant to come up with a probable solution.

Luxury interiors are built in a way to make the occupants fall in love with them. Hence, when a client wants to sell such a property because they do not like the interior, realtors will surely scratch their heads for a few seconds.

So what are these interior design issues that make people want to sell their luxury condos? Let us find out.

1 Lack of Natural Lighting

Natural lighting is crucial for the interior of a house. It does not matter whether it is a luxury condo or a normal one. To increase the overall appeal of the house, you must ensure a sufficient amount of natural lighting in it.

The interior will not have access to a good amount of natural lighting if the planning is poor. For instance, the light cannot enter the rooms if the windows are too small or narrow, or if they are placed in an inconvenient location. The light will also fail to enter the house if the windows are tinted.

Other than all this, it could also be possible that the condo did have access to natural lighting which got blocked later on. That is possible if a new building was constructed near it which blocks the lighting. And while you can remove the window tint or remodel the windows entirely, you cannot ask the new building to just move or disappear. Hence, these are the situations when people want to leave and sell their condos.

2 A Boring Kitchen

Luxury condos these days come equipped with a state-of-the-art kitchen. Kitchens in these lavish apartments are nothing less than a work of art. Beautiful cabinets, high-end appliances, and a smooth finish over the counters and walls. All these things are what people expect in a luxury kitchen. And if a person cannot find all this in the kitchen at their luxury condo, they will put it up on the market for sale.

3 An Overall Old-School Design

The client will have to take the blame for this one. It is not like the design changed after they bought the condo. They should have avoided the place if they are not fond of old-school designs. It is a typical case of someone being fascinated with traditional designs just for the aesthetics. However, when it comes to accepting its practicality, they seem to dislike it. Clients can get bored of the interior, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.

4 Poor Flooring

While buying the condo, the flooring might seem perfect to the buyer. In most cases, they just go with whatever they see in the pictures. And even when they check the place out, they do not put special emphasis on the flooring. The best they can do is give it a tap or a stomp, and see how strong and smooth it is.

As time passes, the flooring begins to wear out. Soon enough, it gives way to stress and strain and ultimately loses its texture and strength. That is when the occupants finally notice what is wrong with the flooring.

Unlike a lot of things inside a condo, the flooring is rather hard to replace. It will require a lot of time and money too. Besides, you cannot replace the flooring of an apartment or condo without being a bother to your neighbors. Thus, people consider selling the place to be a better choice than having to spend money replacing the flooring.

As you can tell from the above discussion, it is not always a design flaw that leads to the desire to sell the property. External circumstances can impact the interior design as well. However, clients will not hear any of it. They paid a premium price for it, and it did not turn out the way they wanted it to be. Thus, with no way to get things fixed, they will eventually decide to sell the luxury condo.
