When it comes to staging a condo, any realtor knows that there's a laundry list of priorities to take care of. 

City condos are typically limited to only a few hundred sq. ft of living space, which makes additional outdoor living space - read: the balcony - a major selling point for most buyers. In fact, many agents report that buyers often won't even consider a unit without a balcony. The opportunity for extra storage space, natural light, and somewhere to step outside for some fresh air is just too good to pass up.

It’s for this reason that cleaning a condo’s balcony until it sparkles needs to be near the top of that aforementioned to-do list. A freshly-cleaned balcony can help you close your sale faster, and for a better price. 

When a potential buyer walks into a home, they want to be able to envision themselves in the whole space, enjoying it to the fullest. This includes visions of sitting out on the balcony with a cup of coffee, surrounded by an urban garden, enjoying the warmth of a summer day.

But rather than grabbing a bucket of soap and water, and spending hours out there yourself trying to make the balcony shine, these types of critical jobs are best left to the professionals. Enter: Balcony Bliss – an easy and accessible addition to your pre-showing staging and cleaning routine. 

Balcony Bliss specializes in GTA condos, offering a hand-detailed cleaning service that makes an outdoor space sparkle more than most would ever think possible. Windows are polished mirror-bright, doors and railings are scrubbed free of built-up dirt and city grime, floors are power-washed clean, and spider webs and debris are swept away. You can even request a seasonal spider treatment, to keep the creepy crawlers at bay.

The company, which launched during the pandemic, offers all this and more… and their top-tier, condo-approved services are delivered alongside speed, friendliness, and an accessible price point.

Basically, Balcony Bliss is the answer to a busy agent’s prayers. Services start at $200, with a quote provided based on the size of the balcony being cleaned. The company also offers volume discounts, so agents prepping multiple properties -- or landlords looking to give several units a good balcony clean -- can take advantage of the offering and save a few dollars in the process.

And it's not just agents or landlords who will benefit from such a service. New condo owners, for example -- while sure to appreciate a bouquet left by their realtor on the counter of their new abode -- would be even more touched by a gift of a shiny-clean outdoor space. "Welcome to your new home," this offering says. "Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the view."

It's true what they say: All that glimmers isn't gold. Where Balcony Bliss is involved, what you see shining in the corner of your eye is most likely a nearby suite's brilliant balcony.
