 The Greatest Guide To Getting rid of A Vacant Lexington Property Quickly

 

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 numerous dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created —

 

1. Sell ASAP, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant home quickly is essential. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Vandalism and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to negotiate. Potential 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 renovate the house before you sell, be sure to get repair estimates from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, ask for many different professional opinions it’ll 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/needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always insisted that you 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, buyers get the idea that the house needs more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping the utilities on will also make it more comfortable for anyone seeing the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re Going To Make Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house 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 aren’t done to a professional quality you will more than likely 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 home sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found answerable for issues you don’t disclose, 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 are emotional creatures, make your home light, bright, charming, charming. The smell of freshly baked cookies, brings out the best memories in all of us.

An empty house with no furniture makes prospecitve buyers work too hard to imagine what your house can be.. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Make Sure The House Is Locked Down

Lock it up! To protect your house from thieves, 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 some tips:

It gets dark, the lights come 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 build-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 15 yrs old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a taser 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 Home Alone?

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