The Greatest Guide To Selling A Vacant Las Vegas Home ASAP
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 lots of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created —
1. Get Rid of It Fast, Or Else…
Getting rid of a vacant home quickly is very important. Liabilities of a unoccupied property can include:
Wanton damage and Break-ins
Trespassing or Squatting
Ignoring Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Determine the Value & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs
Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to make a deal. 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 home before you sell, make certain to get repair estimates from more than one source. Your “jill of all trades sister in law” 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 final sales price. Make the negotiations as hassle-free as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.
3. Leave The Utilities On!
Papa, always insisted that you 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, buyers get the idea that the property requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, honey the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”
Keeping the utilities on will probably also make it more pleasant for anybody seeing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.
4. Must Do’s If You’re Going To Make Repairs
If you are the DIY-er type and want to get the house ready before sale, unless you can produce quality work…. please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs are not done to a professional quality you will more than likely be throwing your spare time and money out the window.
If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super uncomplicated” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the buyer(s). You could be found liable for problems you did not notify the buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s impossible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House
People buy with their emotions, make your home light, bright, charming, 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. Make Sure The House Is Secured
Lock it up! To protect your house from thieves, make sure the house does not look empty. Here are a few 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 build-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very 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. 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 full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
You could do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
