Six Tricks to Getting The Most For Your Vacant Detroit House

You may be wondering why this baby is so shocked about this whole vacancy issue, well believe us, there’s a reason! There are lots of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –

 

1. Get Rid of It Quick, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant house swiftly is essential. Liabilities of a unoccupied home can include:

 

Vandalism and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

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

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to negotiate. 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 house before you sell, be sure to get repair bids 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 several 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. Leave The Utilities On!

Your daddy, always insisted that you 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, buyers get the notion that the property is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping the utilities on is going to also make it more comfortable for everyone seeing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to get the house ready before sale, heed warning. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs are not done to a professional quality you’re going to be be throwing your spare time and money out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. Most sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found at fault for needed repairs you don’t disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.

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

People are emotional creatures, make your house 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.

An empty house with no furniture makes buyers work too hard to imagine what it could be.. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Make Certain The House Is Secured

Lock it 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 a few tips:

Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they 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 accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 15 years old.

Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a gun 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 can make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?

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