The Best Guide To Selling A Vacant St. Louis House ASAP

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so frightened about this whole home being unattended thing, well believe you me, it’s for good 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…

 

Sell a vacant house very quickly is vital. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damage

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Appraise & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to negotiate. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to renovate the house before you sell, make certain to get repair bids from more than one source. 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’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as painless 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:

Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are off, the buyers get the notion 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 will definitely make it more comfy for anyone visiting the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re Making Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready before sale, unless you have a ton of the required experience please do not. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you will more than likely be throwing your time and hard earned cash out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. You can be found culpable for problems you didn’t disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s impossible, but make sure you measure thrice and cut once.

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

People buy with their emotions, make your home warm, light, bright, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.

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. Make Certain The House Is Secured

Lock it up! To protect your house from thieves, make it as difficult as possible for them to get in and make sure it looks like someone’s living in the house. 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 signals that no one is or has been home is the pile-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 13 years old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have mace 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 chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?

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