6 Secrets to Getting The Most For Your Vacant San Jose House

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

 

1. Get Rid of It ASAP, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant house fast is important. Liabilities of a vacant property can include:

 

Criminal damage and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Estimate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to negotiate. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to renovate the home before you sell, make certain to get repair quotes from more than one contractor. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, ask for many different professional opinions it’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as painless as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems 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:

Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are shut off, buyers get the notion that the property requires more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, babe the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”

Keeping utilities on will also make it more pleasant for anyone seeing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You’re Going To Make Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house 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 aren’t done to a professional quality you’re going to be be throwing your spare time and hard earned cash out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. Most folks don’t know this, but you can still be found answerable for needed repairs you do not disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s impossible, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House

People are emotional creatures, make your home warm, light, bright, charming. Everyone loves cookies, particularly a cute house full of freshly baked cookie aroma.

Have enough furniture and décor to make the house looked lived in, this works wonders. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.

6. Make Sure That The House Is Secured

Lock it up! To protect your house from crooks, make sure the house doesn’t look vacant. Here are a few tips:

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

Be sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best indications 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 long ways when your 12 yrs old.

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

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

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