6 Techniques to Getting The Most For Your Vacant PearlandReal Estate

You may be wondering why this baby is so terrified about this whole home being vacant thing, well believe you me, it’s for a good reasn! There are lots of dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created ———-

 

1. Get Rid of It Quickly, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant house swiftly is imperative. Liabilities of a empty home can include:

 

Vandalism and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

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

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to negotiate. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to fix the house before you sell, make sure to get repair quotes from more than one source. Your “jill of all trades sister in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, ask for several 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 for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Papa, always said 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 shut off, buyers get the idea that the house needs more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, honey 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 seeing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and nippy in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re Making Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house before sale, heed warning. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs are not done to a professional quality you will more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned cash out the window.

If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super simple and easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospecitve buyer. Most home sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found liable for problems 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. Stage the House

People buy with their emotions, 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.

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. Be Certain The House Is Locked Down

Lock the house up! To protect your house from thieves, 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 a few tips:

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

Make sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best signs that no one is or has been home is the build-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 12 years old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have mace 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 do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.

    There are over 200 vacant properties in Seattle,Wa. Most homeowners need to get contractor estimates and understand what it takes to complete a complete remodel.
