Sick and Tired of Owning Your Vacant Norfolk Real estate- Here Are Six Easy Tips to Get It Sold Fast

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

 

1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant property quick is vital. Liabilities of a vacant house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases the time taken to make a deal. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more relaxed with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to repair the home before you sell, ensure to get repair quotes from more than one source. 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’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as simple as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Your daddy, always insisted that you turn off 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 notion that the house requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more comfortable for anyone viewing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready before sale, please do not. 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’ll more than likely 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 could be found accountable for problems you failed to disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People buy with their emotions, make your home inviting… bright, light, and 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 it up! To protect your house from criminals, 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:

It gets dark, the lights come 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 accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 13 years old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” 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 can make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?
