6 Techniques to Getting The Most For Your Vacant WinstonHouse

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so shocked about this whole house being empty thing, well believe you me, there’s a reason! There are many dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –

 

1. Get Rid of It ASAP, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant home quickly is important. Liabilities of a vacant house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Break-ins

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail Value & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases the time taken to negotiate. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to renovate the property before you sell, make certain to get repair quotes from more than one source. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, ask for several different professional opinions it will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as easy as possible for 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 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 impression that the house is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, babe the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more pleasant for everyone visiting the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re Making Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready before sale, unless you have a ton of the required experience please don’t. 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 time and hard earned income 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 accountable for issues you do not disclose, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s impossible, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People buy with their emotions, make your home inviting… bright, light, and charming, charming. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.

Have enough furniture and décor to make the house looked lived in, this works wonders. Make it easy on potential buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock it up! To protect your house from criminals, make sure the house does not look unoccupied. Here’s 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 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 very long ways when your 15 yrs old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a taser 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 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.
