I Have To Sell My Vacant Dallas Home Fast – Six Simple Ideas To Get The Most For Your Property or home
You may be wondering why this baby is so afraid about this whole vacancy issue, well believe us, it is for good reason! There are lots of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we have created –
1. Sell Fast, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant property asap is important. Liabilities of a unoccupied property can include:
Criminal damage and Burglary
Trespassing or Squatting
Ignoring Regular Maintenance
Water or Fire Damage
2. Appraise & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases the time taken to negotiate. 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 or not you plan to fix the property before you sell, be sure to get repair quotes from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” 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 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:
Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage
If the utilities are off, potential buyers get the idea that the property is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, honey the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping utilities on is going to also make it more comfy for everyone seeing the house. It is 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 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 are not extremely effective you will more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned cash out the window.
If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super uncomplicated” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). You could be found liable for problems you did not inform the buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s impossible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House
People buy with their emotions, make your house light, bright, charming, charming. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.
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. Make Sure That The House Is Secured
Lock it up! To protect your house from intruders, make sure the house doesn’t look unoccupied. Here’s a few tips:
It gets dark, the lights come on!
Be sure that random 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 neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 12 years old.
Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray 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 can make it look like your house is 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.
