 The Effective Six Step Guide to make the most of your vacant Baton Rouge home:

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 large number of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we have created —

 

1. Get Rid of It Quick, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant home swiftly is important. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate 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 make a deal. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to fix the house before you sell, make certain to get repair bids from more than one contractor. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, ask for many 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 easy 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 out 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 shut off, buyers get the impression that the property is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

Keeping the utilities on will probably also make it more comfy for everybody seeing the house. It is 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 type and want to get the house ready before sale, please do not. 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 spare time and hard earned income out the window.

If you are 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 buyer. You can be found liable for problems you failed to reveal, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s impossible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- 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.

Have enough furniture and décor to make the house looked lived in, this works wonders. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock it up! To protect your house from robbers, 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 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 neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 10 yrs 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 could make it look like your house is 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.
