6 Techniques to Getting The Most For Your Vacant St. Louis Home

6 Techniques to Getting The Most For Your Vacant St. Louis Home

After you get done laughing, you’re probably asking yourself… why is that baby so freaked out about house vacancy? Trust us, it’s for a good reason! There are quite a few dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created ———-

 

1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant property quickly is vital. Liabilities of a unoccupied home can include:

 

Wanton damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to negotiate. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to renovate the property before you sell, make sure to get repair estimates from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” 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 sales price. Make the negotiations as easy as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always insisted that you turn off 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, the buyers get the idea that the house 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 a pretty penny.”

Keeping utilities on will also make it more pleasant for everyone viewing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and chilly 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, heed warning. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs are not extremely effective you will be be throwing your time and hard earned income 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 prospecitve buyer. You could be found accountable for problems you did not warn the buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s not possible, but ensure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People are emotional creatures, make your house warm, light, bright, charming. 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.. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from trespassers, make sure the house doesn’t look unoccupied. Here’s a few 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 build-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 13 years 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 could 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.
