 6 Industry secrets to Making The Most Money Your Vacant Chesapeake Home

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so terrified about this whole house being empty thing, well believe you me, it is for a good reasn! There are countless dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we’ve created —

 

1. Sell Quick, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant home quickly is very important. Liabilities of a unoccupied home can include:

 

Vandalism and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Appraise & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to negotiate. Prospective 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 repair the property before you sell, make certain to get repair quotes 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’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the final sales price. Make the negotiations as uncomplicated as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

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

Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are off, buyers get the impression that the property requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more comfortable for anyone viewing the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You’re 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 in the house, and if the repairs are not done to a professional quality you’ll be be throwing your time and hard earned income out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. Most people don’t know this, but you can still be found responsible for needed repairs you don’t divulge, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s impossible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People are emotional creatures, make your home inviting… bright, light, and charming, charming. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.

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

6. Secure the House

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

It gets dark, the lights come on!

Make sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best signals that no one is or has been home is the pile-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 13 yrs old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray keep an eye on the house. Believe me… this will give him something to do and s/he’ll like the authority you have bestowed upon him.

Or you could make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?

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