 The Quick 6 Step Guide to make the most of a vacant Chesapeake home:

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so concerned about this whole home being empty thing, well believe you me, it is for good reason! There are so many dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we have created –

 

1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant house swiftly is crucial. Liabilities of a empty property can include:

 

Criminal damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to make a deal. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more relaxed with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to fix the home before you sell, make certain to get repair quotes 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 will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as uncomplicated as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Your daddy, 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 shut off, buyers get the notion that the house is in need of more repairs than in reality, 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 comfortable for everybody viewing the house. It gets 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 type and want to get the house ready before sale, heed warning. 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 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. You can be found culpable for problems you did not tell the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People are emotional creatures, make your house 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. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Lock the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from criminals, make sure the house doesn’t look empty. Here are a few tips:

It gets dark, the lights come on!

Make 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 neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 13 years 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 could make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?
