I’m Looking To Sell A Vacant Albuquerque Real estate Fast – A few Simple Strategies To Get The Most For Your Property
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 a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we have created –
1. Sell ASAP, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant property swiftly is significant. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:
Wanton damage and Burglary
Trespassing or Squatting
Overlooking Regular Maintenance
Water or Fire Damage
2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate 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. 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 property before you sell, be sure to get repair bids from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, 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 for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.
3. Leave The Utilities On!
Papa, always said 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, buyers get the notion that the house is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more pleasant for everybody seeing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.
4. Have To’s If You’re 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 in the house, and if the repairs are not done to a professional quality you’ll be 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 “super straightforward” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospecitve buyer. You can be found responsible for problems you did not reveal, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s impossible, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.
5. Stage the House
People buy with their emotions, make your house 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.
Have enough furniture and décor to make the house looked lived in, this works wonders. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them how each space can be used.
6. Be Certain The House Is Locked Down
Lock the house up! To protect your house from robbers, make sure the house does not look empty. Here are a few tips:
Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights go on.
Make sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best indications that no one is or has been home is the pile-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 10 years old.
Have your local community watch member who may or may not have mace 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 Home Alone?
