Six Secrets to Getting The Most For Your Vacant Honolulu Property
You may be wondering why this baby is so afraid about this whole vacancy issue, well believe us, it is for a good reasn! There are a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –
1. Get Rid of It Fast, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant property swiftly is significant. Liabilities of a vacant property can include:
Criminal damage and Break-ins
Trespassing or Squatting
Overlooking Regular Maintenance
Water or Fire Damage
2. Appraise & Approximate the Cost of Repairs
Taking the initiative to get 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 relaxed with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to fix the house before you sell, ensure to get repair quotes from more than one source. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, 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 simple as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.
3. Leave The Utilities On!
Papa, always insisted that you turn out the lights before you left, but in this case leave the utilities on:
Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage
If the utilities are shut off, potential buyers get the notion that the house requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, babe the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”
Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more comfy for everybody viewing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.
4. Must Do’s If You’re 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 don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs aren’t done to a professional quality you will more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned cash out the window.
If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super straightforward” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospecitve buyer. You can be found culpable for problems you failed to advise the buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House
People buy with their emotions, 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. Staging your house helps buyers see 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:
Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights go 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 build-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 15 yrs old.
Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray 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?
