 The Quintessential Guide To Selling A Vacant New York City Property As Soon As Possible

You may be wondering why this baby is so worried about this whole home being vacant thing, well believe us, it’s for good reason! There are countless dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we have created –

 

1. Sell Quick, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant property quick is vital. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Wanton damage and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail Value & 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 selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to repair the property before you sell, ensure 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 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 said 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 off, the buyers get the notion 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 definitely make it more comfortable for everyone visiting the house. It is hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You Are Going To Make Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house before sale, please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you’ll more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned money out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. Most people don’t know this, but you can still be found answerable for problems you do not disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s not possible, but ensure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Stage the House

People are emotional creatures, make your home inviting… bright, light, and charming, 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 prospecitve buyers work too hard to imagine what it could be.. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Make Sure The House Is Locked Down

Lock it up! To protect your house from robbers, 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:

Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!

Make sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best indications that no one is or has been home is the accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 13 years old.

Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a shotgun 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 full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?

You can do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
