 The Easy 6 Step Guide to get the most of your vacant San Francisco house:

You may be wondering why this baby is so terrified about this whole property being unattended thing, well believe you me, it’s for a good reasn! There are so many dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we have created –

 

1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant house fast is crucial. Liabilities of a empty house can include:

 

Wanton damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damage

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Appraise & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases the time taken to negotiate. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to renovate the house before you sell, ensure 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 several different professional opinions it’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the final sales price. Make the negotiations as easy as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Your daddy, always said turn out the lights before you leave, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are off, buyers get the notion that the property is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, darling 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 comfy for anybody visiting the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You’re Making Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to fix up the house before sale, unless you can produce quality work…. please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs are not extremely effective you’ll be be throwing your time and hard earned money out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. You could be found culpable for problems you did not tell the prospective buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s not possible, but make sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. 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. The smell of freshly baked cookies, brings out the best memories in all of us.

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. Lock the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from trespassers, make sure the house does not look unoccupied. Here are a few tips:

It gets dark, the lights come on!

Be sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best signs that no one is or has been home is the buildup of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 13 years old.

Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a gun 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 very well do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
