Need To Get rid of A Vacant House Fast - A few Simple And Easy Steps To Get The Most For Your Real estate

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 so many dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we have created —

 

1. Sell Quick, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant home quickly is essential. Liabilities of a empty home can include:

 

Wanton damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Appraise & Estimate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to make a deal. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to repair the house before you sell, make certain to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. Your “jill of all trades sister in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, 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 hassle-free as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Papa, always insisted that you turn off 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, the 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 will cost us.”

Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more cozy for everybody viewing 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 type and want to fix up the house before sale, unless you can produce quality work…. please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs aren’t done to a professional quality you’ll 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 “super easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). Most people don’t know this, but you can still be found accountable for issues you do not divulge, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s impossible, but be sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People are emotional creatures, make your home light, bright, charming, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. The smell of freshly baked cookies, brings out the best memories in all of us.

Have enough furniture and décor to make the house looked lived in, this works wonders. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.

6. Lock the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from trespassers, make it as difficult as possible for them to get in and make sure it looks like someone’s living in the house. 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 signs that no one is or has been home is the accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 15 years old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a shotgun 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 chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?

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