Sick and Tired of Owning Your Vacant Chicago Home- Here Are Six Easy Strategies to Get It Sold Quickly

 

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 number of dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we’ve created —

 

1. Get Rid of It Fast, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant house swiftly is very important. Liabilities of a empty property can include:

 

Criminal damage and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

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

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to negotiate. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more relaxed with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to repair the property before you sell, be sure to get repair estimates from more than one source. 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 simple as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Your daddy, always said turn off the lights before you left, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are off, potential buyers get the idea that the house is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”

Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more cozy for everybody seeing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and nippy in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re Going To Make Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to get the house ready before sale, heed warning. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you’ll more than likely be throwing your time and money out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. You could be found culpable for problems you failed to reveal, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s not possible, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House

People are emotional creatures, make your home warm, light, bright, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.

Have enough furniture and décor to make the house looked lived in, this works wonders. Make it easy on potential buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from intruders, 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 some tips:

Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!

Make sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best signals that no one is or has been home is the buildup of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 12 yrs old.

Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a gun 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 do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
