 6 Techniques to Getting The Most For Your Vacant Baltimore Property

 

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

 

1. Sell Fast, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant house swiftly is critical. Liabilities of a empty house can include:

 

Vandalism and Break-ins

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Estimate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to make a deal. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to fix the house 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 us, ask for many different professional opinions it will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the final sales price. Make the negotiations as painless as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always insisted that you turn out 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, potential buyers get the idea that the property is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”

Keeping utilities on can also make it more cozy for anybody visiting the house. It is hot out here in the summer and nippy in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to fix up the house before sale, please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you will be be throwing your spare time and money out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. You could be found responsible for problems you did not inform the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s not possible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People are emotional creatures, make your house inviting… bright, light, and charming, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. The smell of freshly baked cookies, brings out the best memories in all of us.

An empty house with no furniture makes buyers work too hard to imagine what your house can be.. Make it easy on buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Be Sure The House Is Locked Down

Lock it up! To protect your house from crooks, make it as difficult as possible for them to get in and make sure it looks like someone’s living in the house. Here are some tips:

Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights go on.

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

Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a shotgun 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 can make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?

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