 Sick and Tired of Owning Your Vacant Forney Home- Here Are Six Easy Steps to Get It Sold Fast

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so frightened about this whole vacancy issue, well believe us, it’s for a good reasn! There are many dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we’ve created –

 

1. Get Rid of It Fast, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant home asap is imperative. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

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

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to negotiate. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to fix the property before you sell, ensure to get repair bids from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” 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 on yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always insisted that you turn out 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 shut off, buyers get the impression that the property is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, babe the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

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

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

If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready 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 are not done to a professional quality you will be be throwing your spare time and money out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. You can be found culpable for problems you failed to inform the buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s impossible, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People are emotional creatures, 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.

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. Lock the House

Lock it up! To protect your house from burglars, 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 some tips:

It gets dark, the lights come on!

Be sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best signals that no one is or has been home is the accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 10 yrs 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 can make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?

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