The Effective 6 Step Guide to make the most of a vacant Detroit residence:

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 a number of dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created —

 

1. Get Rid of It Fast, Or Else…

 

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

 

Vandalism and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Appraise & Estimate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to negotiate. 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 fix the home before you sell, be 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 many 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 for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Your daddy, always insisted that you turn off 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 off, the buyers get the idea that the house is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping utilities on will probably also make it more comfy for anyone seeing the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and nippy in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You Are Going To Make Repairs

If you are the DIY 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 aren’t done to a professional quality you’ll more than likely be throwing your time and money out the window.

If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super simple and easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospecitve buyer. You can be found liable for problems you didn’t reveal, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s not possible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People are emotional creatures, 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 prospecitve 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 the house up! To protect your house from robbers, 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.

Be sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best signs that no one is or has been home is the buildup of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 12 yrs old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a flashlight 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 can make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?

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