The Fast 6 Step Guide to get the most of a vacant North Las Vegas 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 countless dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we’ve created ———-
1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant property quick is significant. Liabilities of a empty home can include:
Criminal damage and Burglary
Trespassing or Squatting
Neglecting Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Appraise & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to make a deal. Prospective 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 house before you sell, ensure to get repair estimates from more than one source. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” 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 simple as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.
3. Leave The Utilities On!
Your daddy, always insisted that you turn off 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 off, buyers get the impression that the house needs more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, babe the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more pleasant for anybody viewing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.
4. Have To’s If You’re Making Repairs
If you are the DIY-er type and want to get the house ready before sale, unless you have a ton of the required experience please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs are not extremely effective you are going to be be throwing your time and hard earned income out the window.
Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. Most sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found responsible for issues you don’t disclose, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s impossible, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.
5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House
People are emotional creatures, make your home 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. Make it easy on potential buyers by showing them how each space can be used.
6. Lock the House
Lock the house up! To protect your house from robbers, make it as difficult as possible for them to get in and make sure it looks like someone’s living in the house. Here are a few tips:
Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they 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 accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 15 years 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 full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?
You could very well do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
