 The Short Six Step Guide to make the most of your vacant Allen property:

 

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

 

1. Sell ASAP, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant home quick is crucial. Liabilities of a empty home can include:

 

Vandalism and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail Value & Estimate 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. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your selling 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 “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, ask for many different professional opinions it will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as painless 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:

Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are off, potential buyers get the idea that the property is in need of more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping the utilities on will also make it more pleasant for anyone seeing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You Are Going To Make Repairs

If you are the DIY type and want to fix up the house before sale, heed warning. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs aren’t done to a professional quality you’ll be be throwing your time and money out the window.

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

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People buy with their emotions, 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.. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.

6. Lock the House

Lock it 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 are 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 build-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 10 yrs old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray keep an eye on the house. Believe 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 chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?

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