I Have To Get rid of My Vacant Seattle Home Fast – A few Effortless Actions To Get The Most For Your Property or home
After you get done laughing, you’re probably asking yourself… why is that baby so freaked out about house vacancy? Trust us, it’s for a good reason! There are many dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –
1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…
Getting rid of a vacant property quickly is essential. Liabilities of a vacant home can include:
Vandalism and Thievery
Trespassing or Squatting
Neglecting Regular Maintenance
Water or Fire 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 minimizes the time taken to make a deal. Prospective 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 or not you plan to repair the house 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 us, ask for many different professional opinions it’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the final sales price. Make the negotiations as easy as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.
3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities
Papa, always insisted that you turn out the lights before you left, but in this case leave the utilities on:
Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage
If the utilities are off, buyers get the idea that the house is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetie 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 everybody seeing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.
4. Have To’s If You Are Making 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 are not extremely effective you’ll be 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 don’t divulge, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s hopeless, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House
People buy with their emotions, make your house warm, light, bright, charming. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.
An empty house with no furniture makes prospecitve buyers work too hard to imagine what your house can be.. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.
6. Always Make Sure The House Is Locked Down
Lock the house up! To protect your house from thieves, make sure the house does not look empty. Here’s a few tips:
Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!
Make sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best signals that no one is or has been home is the build-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 10 yrs old.
Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray 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 very well do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
