Sick & Tired of Owning Your Vacant Glendale Property- Here Are Six Easy Steps to Get It Sold Quickly
You may be wondering why this baby is so anxious about this whole vacancy issue, well believe you me, it is for a good reasn! There are a large number of dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created —
1. Sell Quick, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant home quickly is significant. Liabilities of a vacant house can include:
Wanton damage and Burglary
Trespassing or Squatting
Neglecting Regular Maintenance
Water or Fire Damage
2. Determine the Retail 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 minimizes the time taken to negotiate. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to fix the home before you sell, be sure 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 us, ask for many 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/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, potential buyers get the notion 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’ll cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping utilities on will probably also make it more cozy for everyone seeing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.
4. Have To’s If You’re Going To Make Repairs
If you are the DIY 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 are not extremely effective you’ll more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned income out the window.
If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super straightforward” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the buyer. You can be found liable for problems you failed to tell the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re 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 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.
An empty house with no furniture makes prospecitve buyers work too hard to imagine what your house can be.. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.
6. Lock the House
Lock it up! To protect your house from crooks, 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:
Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!
Make sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best indications 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 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 could make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
You could do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
