6 Tricks to Getting The Most For Your Vacant Kansas CityHouse

You may be wondering why this baby is so shocked about this whole property being empty thing, well believe you me, there is a reason! There are countless dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we’ve created ———-

 

1. Sell Fast, Or Else…

 

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

 

Vandalism and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

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

Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to make a deal. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to fix the home before you sell, ensure to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, 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 hassle-free as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Your daddy, always insisted that you turn out the lights before you left, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are off, buyers get the impression that the house is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, babe the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping the utilities on will also make it more comfortable for everyone visiting the house. It is hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You Are Going To Make Repairs

If you are the DIY 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 extremely effective you’re going to be be throwing your time and hard earned money out the window.

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

5. Stage the House

People buy with their emotions, make your house light, bright, charming, charming. 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 it could be.. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.

6. Make Sure The House Is Locked Down

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

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

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

Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a shotgun keep an eye on the house. Believe you me- s/he’ll enjoy the authority/responsibility you’ve entrusted them with.

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

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