The Fast 6 Step Guide to make the most of a vacant Anchorage house:

 

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

 

1. Get Rid of It Quickly, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant house fast is significant. Liabilities of a vacant home can include:

 

Wanton damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Appraise & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to negotiate. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more relaxed with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to repair the house before you sell, be sure to get repair bids from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, ask for several different professional opinions it’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as uncomplicated as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Papa, 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 shut off, potential buyers get the idea that the house is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, honey the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”

Keeping utilities on will also make it more comfy for anybody viewing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re Making Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready before sale, unless you have a ton of the required experience please do not. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs are not extremely effective you will be be throwing your spare time and hard earned money out the window.

If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those ” uncomplicated” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospecitve buyer. Most people don’t know this, but you can still be found responsible for issues you don’t disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People buy with their emotions, 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 buyers work too hard to imagine what it could be.. Make it easy on potential buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Always Make Sure The House Is Secured

Lock it up! To protect your house from crooks, make sure the house doesn’t look unoccupied. Here’s some tips:

Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!

Be sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best signs that no one is or has been home is the pile-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 15 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 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.
