 The Quintessential Guide To Getting rid of A Vacant Norfolk Property As Soon As Possible

 

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 quite a few dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we have created ———-

 

1. Get Rid of It Fast, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant home quick is imperative. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically 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 selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to repair the home 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!

Your daddy, always insisted that you turn out the lights before you leave, but in this case leave the utilities on:

Keeping the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are shut off, the buyers get the idea that the house 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 the utilities on will also make it more comfy for everybody viewing the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and nippy in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re Making Repairs

If you are the DIY 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’ll more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned income out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those ” easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). You can be found liable for problems you failed to tell the prospective buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s impossible, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People buy with their emotions, make your house inviting… bright, light, and charming, charming. Everyone loves cookies, particularly a cute house full of freshly baked cookie aroma.

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 That The House Is Secured

Lock the house up! To protect your house from robbers, make sure the house doesn’t look vacant. 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 signals 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 very long ways when your 10 yrs old.

Have your trustworthy “local night watch” neighbor who may or may not have a flashlight 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 could make it look like your house is 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.
