Six Industry secrets to Making The Most Money Your Vacant Chesapeake Real Estate

 

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 have created ———-

 

1. Get Rid of It ASAP, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant home quick is very important. Liabilities of a empty house can include:

 

Vandalism and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to negotiate. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to repair the house before you sell, make sure to get repair estimates from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, ask for several different professional opinions it’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the final sales price. Make the negotiations as hassle-free as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Your daddy, always said turn off the lights before you leave, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are shut off, buyers get the idea that the house requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetheart 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 cozy for anyone seeing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re 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 on the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you’ll be be throwing your time and money out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those ” simple and easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). You can be found liable for problems you failed to disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s impossible, but make sure 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, 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. Make it easy on buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Lock the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from intruders, 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:

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 build-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 13 years old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have mace keep an eye on the house. Trust 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 Home Alone?

You could quite possibly do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
