Sick & Tired of Owning Your Vacant Richardson House- Here Are 6 Easy Techniques to Get It Sold Fast
You may be wondering why this baby is so afraid about this whole home being unattended thing, well believe us, it’s for a good reasn! There are numerous 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 fast is very important. Liabilities of a unoccupied property can include:
Criminal damage and Burglary
Trespassing or Squatting
Ignoring Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Determine the Value & Estimate the Cost of Repairs
Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases 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 or not you plan to fix the house before you sell, make sure to get repair bids 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 many different professional opinions it’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as easy 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 leave, but in this case leave the utilities on:
Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage
If the utilities are off, potential buyers get the notion that the house is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping the utilities on will probably also make it more pleasant for everyone visiting the house. It is hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.
4. Have To’s If You Are Making 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 in 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. You could be found liable for problems you failed to disclose, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s impossible, but be sure you measure twice and cut once.
5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House
People are emotional creatures, make your house warm, light, bright, 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. Make it easy on buyers by showing them how each space can be used.
6. Make Sure The House Is Secured
Lock it up! To protect your house from burglars, make sure the house doesn’t look unoccupied. Here’s a few tips:
It gets dark, the lights come on!
Be sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best indications 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 12 yrs old.
Have your local community watch member who may or may not have mace keep an eye on the house. Believe you me- s/he’ll enjoy the authority/responsibility you’ve entrusted them with.
Or you can make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?
You can do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
