Sick and Tired of Owning Your Vacant Mission Home- Here Are 6 Easy Tips to Get It Sold Fast

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so nervous about this whole vacancy issue, well believe us, there is a reason! There are many dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created ———-

 

1. Get Rid of It Quickly, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant property asap is essential. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Burglary

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 decreases the time taken to make a deal. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to fix the property 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 final sales price. Make the negotiations as simple as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Papa, always insisted that you turn out 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 shut off, buyers get the idea that the house is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more pleasant for anybody seeing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You’re Making Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to fix up the house before sale, please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs aren’t done to a professional quality you will 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 prospective buyer(s). You could be found accountable for problems you did not disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s not possible, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People buy with their emotions, make your home 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.

An empty house with no furniture makes prospecitve buyers work too hard to imagine what your house can be.. Make it easy on buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock it 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 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 15 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 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.
