I Have To Get rid of A Vacant Chicago Property Fast - 6 Simple And Easy Steps To Get The Most For Your House

You may be wondering why this baby is so worried about this whole house being empty thing, well believe you me, there is a 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 Quick, Or Else…

 

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

 

Vandalism and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Appraise & Approximate 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 relaxed with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to repair the home before you sell, make sure to get repair quotes 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 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 simple as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Papa, always insisted that you 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 requires 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 definitely make it more comfy for anyone viewing the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You Are 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 on the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you will be be throwing your spare 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. You can be found responsible for problems you failed to tell the prospective buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s hopeless, 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, 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.

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

6. Secure the House

Lock it 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 some tips:

Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights go 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 build up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 10 years old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a gun keep an eye on the house. Trust 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.
