The Easy Six Step Guide to make the most of a vacant Louisville property:

You may be wondering why this baby is so upset about this whole house being empty thing, well believe us, there’s a reason! There are a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we’ve created –

 

1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant house swiftly is essential. Liabilities of a vacant home can include:

 

Criminal damage and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Appraise & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to negotiate. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to repair the house before you sell, make sure to get repair quotes 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 uncomplicated as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

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

Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are shut off, buyers get the notion that the property needs more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”

Keeping utilities on will also make it more comfortable for anyone visiting the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You’re Going To Make Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready before sale, heed warning. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs aren’t done to a professional quality you’ll more than likely be throwing your spare time and money out the window.

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

5. Stage the House

People buy with their emotions, make your house inviting… bright, light, and charming, charming. 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. Be Sure The House Is Secured

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

Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights 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 accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 10 years 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?

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