I Need To Get rid of A Vacant Minneapolis Home Fast - 6 Easy Tips To Get The Most For Your Property

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so frightened about this whole vacancy issue, well believe us, it’s for a good reasn! There are numerous dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we have created —

 

1. Sell Quick, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant property quickly is crucial. Liabilities of a empty property can include:

 

Wanton damage and Break-ins

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to negotiate. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to fix the home before you sell, ensure to get repair bids from more than one source. 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 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 shut off, the buyers get the notion that the property requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”

Keeping utilities on is going to also make it more comfortable for everybody seeing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re 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 don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs are not done to a professional quality you will more than likely be throwing your spare time and money out the window.

If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those ” easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the buyer. You could be found accountable for problems you failed to warn the buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s hopeless, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People are emotional creatures, make your home inviting… bright, light, and charming, charming. Everyone loves cookies, particularly a cute house full of freshly baked cookie aroma.

An empty house with no furniture makes prospecitve 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 the house up! To protect your house from burglars, 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 neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 15 years old.

Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a flashlight 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 House Party?

You could quite possibly do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
