 The Easy 6 Step Guide to make the most of a vacant Madison house:

You may be wondering why this baby is so nervous about this whole house being empty thing, well believe us, it is for a good reasn! There are quite a few dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we’ve created ———-

 

1. Sell Quick, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant house very quickly is imperative. Liabilities of a empty home can include:

 

Vandalism and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & 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 asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to repair the home before you sell, ensure to get repair estimates from more than one source. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, 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 hassle-free as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Your daddy, always insisted that you 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 shut off, potential buyers get the idea that the property is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetheart 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 cozy for everybody visiting the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and nippy in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re Going To Make 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 on the house, and if the repairs are not done to a professional quality you’ll be be throwing your time and hard earned income out the window.

If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super straightforward” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the buyer. You could be found culpable for problems you did not disclose, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s hopeless, but ensure you measure thrice and cut once.

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

People buy with their emotions, make your home light, bright, charming, charming. The smell of freshly baked cookies, brings out the best memories in all of us.

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. Lock the House

Lock it up! To protect your house from crooks, 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.

Make sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best signals 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 13 years old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray 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 House Party?

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