Sick and Tired of Owning Your Vacant Midland Property- Here Are A Few Easy Strategies to Get It Sold Fast
You may be wondering why this baby is so afraid about this whole vacancy issue, well believe us, there is a reason! There are quite a few 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 home very quickly is vital. Liabilities of a vacant home can include:
Vandalism and Theft
Trespassing or Squatting
Ignoring Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Determine the Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to make a deal. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to fix the home before you sell, ensure to get repair quotes from more than one contractor. Your “handy dandy cousin” 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 sales price. Make the negotiations as painless as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.
3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities
Papa, always said turn out the lights before you leave, but in this case leave the utilities on:
Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage
If the utilities are shut off, potential buyers get the impression 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’ll cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping utilities on will also make it more comfy for anybody visiting the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.
4. Must Do’s If You’re Going To Make Repairs
If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house before sale, heed warning. 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 more than likely 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 “super easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospecitve buyer. You can be found accountable for problems you failed to reveal, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s not possible, but ensure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House
People buy with their emotions, make your house inviting… bright, light, and charming, 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. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.
6. Be Sure The House Is Secured
Lock the house up! To protect your house from intruders, make sure the house does not look unoccupied. Here’s a few tips:
Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights go 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 build-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 15 years old.
Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a flashlight 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 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.
