6 Industry secrets to Making The Most Money Your Vacant Baton Rouge Property or home

After you get done laughing, you’re probably asking yourself… why is that baby so freaked out about house vacancy? Trust us, it’s for a good reason! There are many dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we have created —

 

1. Get Rid of It Quickly, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant home swiftly is essential. Liabilities of a empty property can include:

 

Wanton damage and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail Value & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to negotiate. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to fix the property before you sell, make certain to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, ask for many different professional opinions it will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as hassle-free as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always insisted that you turn off the lights before you left, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are shut off, the buyers get the idea that the property is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping utilities on will probably also make it more pleasant for everyone visiting the house. It is hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to get the house ready before sale, unless you can produce quality work…. please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs are not extremely effective you will more than likely be throwing your time and money out the window.

If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super uncomplicated” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the buyer(s). Most people don’t know this, but you can still be found culpable for problems you do not notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s not possible, but be sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People buy with their emotions, make your house light, bright, charming, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.

An empty house with no furniture makes prospecitve buyers work too hard to imagine what it could be.. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.

6. Lock the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from criminals, make sure the house does not look vacant. Here’s some tips:

It gets dark, the lights come on!

Be sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best signs that no one is or has been home is the pile-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 15 yrs old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a gun keep an eye on the house. Believe you me- s/he’ll enjoy the authority/responsibility you’ve entrusted them with.

Or you can make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?

You could quite possibly do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
