The Fast 6 Step Guide to get the most of a vacant Stockton 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 quite a few dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created —

 

1. Sell Fast, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant home quick is imperative. Liabilities of a unoccupied property can include:

 

Vandalism and Break-ins

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Estimate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases 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. Regardless of whether you plan to renovate the house before you sell, be sure to get repair quotes from more than one contractor. 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 will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the final sales price. Make the negotiations as painless as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Papa, always said turn off 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 notion that the property requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

Keeping utilities on can also make it more comfortable for everyone viewing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You Are Going To Make 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 on the house, and if the repairs are not done to a professional quality you’re going to 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 people don’t know this, but you can still be found answerable for needed repairs you don’t notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s hopeless, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People are emotional creatures, make your home warm, light, bright, charming. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.

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. Lock the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from burglars, make sure the house doesn’t look unoccupied. Here are some 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 indications 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 long ways when your 12 yrs old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have mace keep an eye on the house. Trust 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 House Party?

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