I Need To Sell A Vacant Honolulu Property Fast – Six Quick Basic Steps To Get The Most For Your Real estate
You may be wondering why this baby is so anxious about this whole home being unattended thing, well believe us, there’s a reason! There are a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –
1. Sell Fast, Or Else…
Getting rid of a vacant house swiftly is crucial. Liabilities of a empty house can include:
Vandalism and Theft
Trespassing or Squatting
Neglecting Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Appraise & 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 at ease with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to renovate the house 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 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 on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.
3. Leave The Utilities On!
Your daddy, 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, the buyers get the impression that the property needs more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”
Keeping utilities on will probably also make it more pleasant for everyone seeing the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and nippy 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 can produce quality work…. please do not. 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 income out the window.
Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. You can be found accountable for problems you did not reveal, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s not possible, but be sure you measure twice and cut once.
5. Stage the House
People buy with their emotions, make your home warm, light, bright, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. 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.. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them how each space can be used.
6. Lock the House
Lock it up! To protect your house from intruders, make sure the house does not look vacant. Here’s some tips:
Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights go on.
Make 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 local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 10 years 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 could make it look like your house is chock 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.
