The Quick Six Step Guide to get the most of a vacant Reno home:

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so nervous about this whole property being unattended thing, well believe us, it’s for a good reasn! There are many dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we have created ———-

 

1. Sell Quick, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant property fast is critical. Liabilities of a empty home can include:

 

Vandalism and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Appraise & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to negotiate. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to fix the property before you sell, ensure to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. 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 sales price. Make the negotiations as simple as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Your daddy, 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 shut off, buyers get the notion that the property needs more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping utilities on will also make it more cozy for anybody visiting the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY 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 aren’t extremely effective you’ll be 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 straightforward” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). You could be found liable for problems you failed to disclose, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s not possible, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House

People buy with their emotions, make your house warm, light, bright, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.

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

6. Secure the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from trespassers, make it as difficult as possible for them to get in and make sure it looks like someone’s living in the house. Here’s a few tips:

Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they 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 pile-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 15 years old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a shotgun keep an eye on the house. Trust 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 chock 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.
