The Easy Six Step Guide to get the most of a vacant Cleveland home:

You may be wondering why this baby is so scared about this whole vacancy issue, well believe you me, it is for good reason! There are quite a few dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –

 

1. Get Rid of It ASAP, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant property quickly is very important. Liabilities of a unoccupied property can include:

 

Vandalism and Break-ins

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damage

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get 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 asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to repair the house before you sell, be sure to get repair quotes from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” 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 simple as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/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:

Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are shut off, the buyers get the idea that the property is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, honey the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”

Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more cozy for everybody viewing the house. It’s 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 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 are not extremely effective you’ll more than likely be throwing your time and money out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super straightforward” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). Most home sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found at fault for issues you do not notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s not possible, but make sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People buy with their emotions, make your house light, bright, charming, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. Everyone loves cookies, particularly a cute house full of freshly baked cookie aroma.

An empty house with no furniture makes prospecitve buyers work too hard to imagine what it could be.. Make it easy on buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Secure 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 are some tips:

Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!

Make sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best signs 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 10 years old.

Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a shotgun 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 Home Alone?

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