he Fast Six Step Guide to get the most of a vacant Lincoln property:

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so scared about this whole property being unattended thing, well believe us, it’s for good reason! There are numerous dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we’ve created ———-

 

1. Get Rid of It Quick, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant property asap is vital. Liabilities of a empty home can include:

 

Vandalism and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail 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 negotiate. 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 repair the property before you sell, be sure to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, ask for many different professional opinions it’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as uncomplicated as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always said turn out the lights before you leave, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are shut off, potential buyers get the notion that the house needs more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”

Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more pleasant for anybody viewing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.

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

If you are the DIY type and want to fix up the house 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 aren’t extremely effective you are going to be be throwing your time and money out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the buyer. Most home sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found responsible for needed repairs you do not divulge, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House

People buy with their emotions, make your house warm, light, bright, 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.

An empty house with no furniture makes prospecitve buyers work too hard to imagine what it could be.. Make it easy on buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

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:

It gets dark, the lights come on!

Be sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best indications that no one is or has been home is the accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 15 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 could make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?

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