Six Strategies to Getting The Most For Your Vacant Jacksonville Real Estate

You may be wondering why this baby is so shocked about this whole home being vacant thing, well believe us, there is a reason! 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 Quick, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant home quickly is essential. Liabilities of a unoccupied home can include:

 

Vandalism and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the 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 minimizes the time taken to negotiate. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to repair the home before you sell, be sure to get repair estimates from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” 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 uncomplicated as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

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

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

4. Must Do’s If You Are Going To Make Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to fix up the house before sale, unless you can produce quality work…. 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’ll more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned cash out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those ” simple” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). You can be found liable for problems you failed to tell the prospective buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s impossible, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People buy with their emotions, make your home light, bright, charming, charming. Everyone loves cookies, particularly a cute house full of freshly baked cookie aroma.

An empty house with no furniture makes buyers work too hard to imagine what it could be.. 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 robbers, make sure the house does not look empty. Here’s a few tips:

It gets dark, the lights come 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 neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 12 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 full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?

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