Sick and Tired of Owning Your Vacant House- Here Are 6 Easy Ideas to Get It Sold Fast

 

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 quite a few dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we’ve created —

 

1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant house quickly is vital. Liabilities of a empty property can include:

 

Criminal damage and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Neglecting 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 decreases 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. No matter whether you plan to renovate the home before you sell, make sure to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, ask for several different professional opinions it will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the final 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 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 off, potential buyers get the impression that the house needs more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

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

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

If you are the DIY-er 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 spare time and money out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those ” easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). Most sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found answerable for problems you don’t disclose, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s not possible, but make sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. 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. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock the house 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 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 signs that no one is or has been home is the build 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 can make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
