 The Easy 6 Step Guide to make the most of a vacant Jacksonville residence:

You may be wondering why this baby is so anxious about this whole vacancy issue, well believe you me, it’s for good reason! There are a large number of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we have created ———-

 

1. Get Rid of It Fast, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant property quickly is vital. Liabilities of a vacant house can include:

 

Vandalism and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Estimate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to make a deal. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more relaxed with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to repair the property before you sell, make certain to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, 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 simple as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always insisted that you turn off the lights before you left, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are off, the buyers get the idea that the house requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, honey the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”

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

4. Must Do’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to get the house ready before sale, 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 will more than likely be throwing your 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 answerable for needed repairs you do not disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s impossible, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.

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

People buy with their emotions, make your house light, bright, 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. Make it easy on buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Ensure The House Is Secured

Lock the house up! To protect your house from trespassers, 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:

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 build up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 13 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 can make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?
