Six Tricks to Making The Most Money Your Vacant Oakland Home

 

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 house, but luckily, for you, we’ve created ———-

 

1. Sell ASAP, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant property quickly is imperative. Liabilities of a unoccupied property can include:

 

Vandalism and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail 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 reduces the time taken to negotiate. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to renovate the property before you sell, be sure to get repair bids from more than one contractor. Your “jill of all trades sister in law” 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 hassle-free as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

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 it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”

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

4. Have To’s If You’re Going To Make Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house before sale, heed warning. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs are not extremely effective you will 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 and easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). You could be found accountable for problems you failed to disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s hopeless, but ensure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People are emotional creatures, make your house inviting… bright, light, and charming, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. 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. Make it easy on potential buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock it up! To protect your house from crooks, make sure the house doesn’t look unoccupied. 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 signals 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 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 could make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?

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