Six Techniques to Getting The Most For Your Vacant Buffalo Property or home
You may be wondering why this baby is so anxious about this whole property being unattended thing, well believe us, there’s a reason! There are numerous dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created ———-
1. Get Rid of It Quickly, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant house quickly is critical. Liabilities of a vacant home can include:
Wanton damage and Thievery
Trespassing or Squatting
Ignoring Regular Maintenance
Water or Fire Damage
2. Determine the Value & Estimate the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases the time taken to make a deal. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to repair the property before you sell, be sure 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 sales price. Make the negotiations as uncomplicated as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.
3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities
Your daddy, always insisted that you turn off 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, buyers get the notion that the house requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”
Keeping utilities on can also make it more comfortable for anyone seeing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.
4. Have To’s If You’re Making Repairs
If you are the DIY-er 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 are not done to a professional quality you’re going to be be throwing your time and money out the window.
If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those ” straightforward” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the buyer(s). Most home sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found answerable for needed repairs you don’t divulge, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.
5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House
People buy with their emotions, make your house inviting… bright, light, and charming, charming. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.
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. Make Sure The House Is Secured
Lock the house 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:
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 build up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 10 yrs old.
Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a flashlight keep an eye on the house. Trust me… this will give him something to do and s/he’ll like the authority you have bestowed upon him.
Or you could 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.
