Sick & Tired of Owning Your Vacant Albuquerque Real estate- Here Are 6 Easy Ideas to Get It Sold Quickly
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 many dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we’ve created —
1. Get Rid of It Quick, Or Else…
Sell a vacant property very quickly is essential. Liabilities of a vacant house can include:
Criminal damage and Break-ins
Trespassing or Squatting
Ignoring Regular Maintenance
Water or Fire Damage
2. Determine the Value & Estimate the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to negotiate. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to renovate the house before you sell, be sure to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. Your “jill of all trades sister 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 uncomplicated as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.
3. Leave The Utilities On!
Your daddy, 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 notion that the property is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, honey the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more comfy for anybody visiting the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.
4. Have To’s If You’re 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 extremely effective you’ll more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned money out the window.
Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. Most folks don’t know this, but you can still be found liable for needed repairs you don’t notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s hopeless, but ensure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House
People are emotional creatures, make your house 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. Be Certain The House Is Secured
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 some tips:
Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!
Be sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best signs that no one is or has been home is the buildup of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 13 yrs old.
Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a shotgun keep an eye on the house. Believe 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 full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?
