Sick & Tired of Owning Your Vacant Henderson Property or home- Here Are A Few Easy Steps to Get It Sold Quickly
You may be wondering why this baby is so concerned about this whole property being vacant thing, well believe you me, it’s for good reason! There are many dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –
1. Sell Fast, Or Else…
Sell a vacant home fast is crucial. Liabilities of a vacant house can include:
Vandalism and Thievery
Trespassing or Squatting
Neglecting Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Appraise & Estimate the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to negotiate. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to repair the house before you sell, make certain to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, ask for several different professional opinions it will 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 needed repairs.
3. Leave The Utilities On!
Your daddy, always said 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 idea that the property requires more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping utilities on will also make it more cozy for everybody visiting the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and nippy in the winter.
4. Must Do’s If You Are Going To Make Repairs
If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house before sale, heed warning. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs are not extremely effective you will be 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 can be found liable for problems you failed to disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s not possible, but ensure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House
People are emotional creatures, make your house inviting… bright, light, and charming, charming. 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. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them how each space can be used.
6. Secure the House
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’s some tips:
It gets dark, the lights come on!
Make sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best indications that no one is or has been home is the pile-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 15 years old.
Have your trustworthy “local night watch” 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 chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
