I’m Looking To Sell A Vacant Sacramento Real estate Fast – Several Effortless Strategies To Get The Most For Your Home
You may be wondering why this baby is so concerned about this whole property being empty thing, well believe you me, it’s for good reason! There are numerous dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we’ve created —
1. Get Rid of It Quick, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant property very quickly is important. Liabilities of a empty house can include:
Vandalism and Break-ins
Trespassing or Squatting
Overlooking Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to negotiate. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable 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, make sure to get repair bids 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 will 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. Leave The Utilities On!
Papa, always said turn off 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, potential buyers get the impression that the property requires more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”
Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more pleasant for everyone visiting the house. It is 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-er type and want to fix up the house before sale, please do not. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you will be be throwing your time and hard earned money out the window.
If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those ” uncomplicated” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). Most sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found accountable for needed repairs you don’t notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s not possible, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.
5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House
People are emotional creatures, make your house light, bright, charming, 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 Secured
Lock the house up! To protect your house from thieves, make sure the house doesn’t look empty. Here’s a few tips:
It gets dark, the lights come on!
Make sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best signs that no one is or has been home is the pile-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 13 years old.
Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a gun keep an eye on the house. Believe 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 chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
You could quite possibly do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
