Six Industry secrets to Making The Most Money Your Vacant Portland Property or home

 

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 a number of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we have created —

 

1. Get Rid of It Quick, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant house fast is essential. Liabilities of a empty house can include:

 

Vandalism and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Appraise & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces 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. Whether or not you plan to renovate the home before you sell, be sure to get repair estimates from more than one source. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, ask for many different professional opinions it will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the final sales price. Make the negotiations as hassle-free as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always insisted that you turn off 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 shut off, potential buyers get the notion that the property requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more cozy for everybody visiting the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You Are Going To Make 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 on the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you will more than likely be throwing your 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 didn’t disclose, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s not possible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House

People are emotional creatures, make your house light, bright, 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. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock it up! To protect your house from robbers, make sure the house does not look empty. 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 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 you me- s/he’ll enjoy the authority/responsibility you’ve entrusted them with.

Or you can make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?

You could very well do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
