6 Tricks to Making The Most Money Your Vacant Buffalo Home

You may be wondering why this baby is so anxious about this whole vacancy issue, well believe us, it’s for a good reasn! There are a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –

 

1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant house asap is crucial. Liabilities of a empty house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Appraise & Estimate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases the time taken to make a deal. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to renovate the property before you sell, be sure to get repair estimates 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 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 on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always insisted that you turn off 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 a pretty penny.”

Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more comfortable for anyone visiting the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to get the house ready before sale, unless you can produce quality work…. please do not. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs aren’t done to a professional quality you will more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned cash out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super straightforward” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). You can be found responsible for problems you did not disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s impossible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. 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. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.

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. Secure the House

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’s 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 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 yrs old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray 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.
