 Six Secrets to Getting The Most For Your Vacant NashvilleHome

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 quite a few dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we’ve created ———-

 

1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…

 

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

 

Vandalism and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

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

Having 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 or not you plan to renovate the property before you sell, make sure to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. 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 sales price. Make the negotiations as easy as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always said turn off 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, the buyers get the idea that the house needs more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, honey the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping the utilities on can also make it more pleasant for everybody viewing the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and frosty 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 are not done to a professional quality you are going to be be throwing your time and hard earned cash out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super simple and easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospecitve buyer. Most people don’t know this, but you can still be found responsible for problems you do not notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s not possible, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.

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

People buy with their emotions, make your home light, bright, charming, 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 potential buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from trespassers, make sure the house doesn’t look unoccupied. Here’s some tips:

Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights go on.

Be sure that miscellaneous 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 local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 15 years 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 could make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
