Six Industry secrets to Making The Most Money Your Vacant Lincoln House
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 lots of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we have created –
1. Get Rid of It Quickly, Or Else…
Getting rid of a vacant home asap is significant. Liabilities of a vacant property can include:
Wanton damage and Theft
Trespassing or Squatting
Overlooking 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 reduces the time taken to negotiate. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more relaxed with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to fix the property before you sell, be sure to get repair estimates from more than one source. Your “jill of all trades sister in law” 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 sales price. Make the negotiations as hassle-free as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.
3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities
Your daddy, always said turn out 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, potential buyers get the impression that the house needs more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, honey 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 comfortable for everyone visiting the house. It is hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.
4. Must Do’s If You’re Making Repairs
If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready before sale, unless you have a ton of the required experience please do not. 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 be be throwing your spare 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 buyer. You can be found accountable for problems you did not reveal, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s not possible, 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 home warm, light, bright, 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. Always Make Sure The House Is Secured
Lock it 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 are a few tips:
Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!
Make sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best signals that no one is or has been home is the accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 15 yrs old.
Have your local community watch member who may or may not have mace 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 full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?
