The Easy Six Step Guide to make the most of your vacant San Bernardino house:

 

After you get done laughing, you’re probably asking yourself… why is that baby so freaked out about house vacancy? Trust us, it’s for a good reason! There are lots of dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we’ve created –

 

1. Get Rid of It ASAP, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant property asap is imperative. Liabilities of a vacant home can include:

 

Wanton damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

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

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to make a deal. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable 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 “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’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as hassle-free as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always insisted that you turn off 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 house requires more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

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

4. Have To’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house before sale, unless you can produce quality work…. please do not. 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 spare 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. Most home sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found accountable for issues you do not notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure twice 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. 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. Always Make Sure The House Is Locked Down

Lock it up! To protect your house from criminals, make sure the house doesn’t look vacant. Here’s 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 signals 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 12 yrs old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray keep an eye on the house. Believe 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 Home Alone?

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