The Greatest Guide To Selling A Vacant Virginia Beach Home As Soon As Possible
You may be wondering why this baby is so shocked about this whole house being empty thing, well believe us, it’s for good reason! There are a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –
1. Sell ASAP, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant property quick is vital. Liabilities of a unoccupied home can include:
Vandalism and Burglary
Trespassing or Squatting
Overlooking Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to negotiate. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to fix the house before you sell, make certain 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 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 painless as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.
3. Leave The Utilities On!
Your daddy, always said turn out the lights before you leave, but in this case leave the utilities on:
Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage
If the utilities are shut off, buyers get the notion that the property is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”
Keeping utilities on can also make it more cozy for everybody viewing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.
4. Have To’s If You Are Making Repairs
If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house 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 aren’t done to a professional quality you are going to be be throwing your time and money 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 needed repairs you do not notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s not possible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Stage the House
People buy with their emotions, 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 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. Lock the House
Lock the house 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 a few tips:
It gets dark, the lights come on!
Be sure that random 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 10 years old.
Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a gun keep an eye on the house. Believe you me- s/he’ll enjoy the authority/responsibility you’ve entrusted them with.
Or you could make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
You could do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
