6 Insider secrets to Getting The Most For Your Vacant Virginia Beach Real Estate

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so afraid about this whole vacancy issue, well believe you me, it’s for good reason! There are numerous dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created —

 

1. Get Rid of It Quick, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant property quick is vital. Liabilities of a empty house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to negotiate. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to fix the home before you sell, make sure to get repair bids from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, ask for several different professional opinions it’ll 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 needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Your daddy, always insisted that you turn out the lights before you left, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

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

Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more pleasant for everybody visiting the house. It is hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready before sale, please do not. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs aren’t done to a professional quality you’ll be be throwing your spare time and money out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those ” simple and easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the buyer. Most home sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found answerable for problems you don’t disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s impossible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People buy with their emotions, make your home inviting… bright, light, and 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 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 intruders, make sure the house doesn’t look vacant. Here are some tips:

Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!

Make sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best signals that no one is or has been home is the accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 10 yrs old.

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

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

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