Sick & Tired of Owning Your Vacant Arlington House- Here Are Six Easy Techniques 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 a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –

 

1. Get Rid of It Fast, Or Else…

 

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

 

Criminal damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Estimate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to negotiate. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to repair the property before you sell, make certain to get repair estimates from more than one source. 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 easy as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Papa, always insisted that you turn out the lights before you left, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are off, potential buyers get the notion that the property 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 utilities on will also make it more cozy for everybody viewing the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.

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

If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready before sale, unless you can produce quality work…. please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs are not done to a professional quality you’ll more than likely be throwing your time and hard earned income 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 didn’t reveal, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- 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. The smell of freshly baked cookies, brings out the best memories in all of us.

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. Make Sure The House Is Secured

Lock the house up! To protect your house from trespassers, make it as difficult as possible for them to get in and make sure it looks like someone’s living in the house. Here’s some tips:

It gets dark, the lights come on!

Make 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 community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 13 yrs old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a flashlight 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 could make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?

You could very well do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
