The Fast 6 Step Guide to get the most of a vacant Kansas City property:

 

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 so many dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we have created ———-

 

1. Sell Fast, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant property quick is vital. Liabilities of a empty house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

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

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases the time taken to make a deal. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to repair the property before you sell, make certain 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 will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as painless 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 left, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are off, potential buyers get the impression that the property requires more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more cozy for everybody seeing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and nippy in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY 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 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 answerable for issues you do not disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People are emotional creatures, make your home warm, light, bright, charming. 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.. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.

6. Lock the House

Lock it up! To protect your house from thieves, make sure the house does not look vacant. Here’s some tips:

Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights go on.

Be sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best indications that no one is or has been home is the build up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 10 yrs old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a shotgun 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 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.
