 The The Best Guide To Getting rid of A Vacant Norfolk House Quickly

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so frightened about this whole property being empty thing, well believe you me, there’s a reason! There are lots of dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we have created —

 

1. Get Rid of It Quickly, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant property fast is very important. Liabilities of a unoccupied property can include:

 

Wanton damage and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases 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. Whether or not you plan to fix the house before you sell, make certain to get repair estimates from more than one contractor. 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 sales price. Make the negotiations as painless as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Your daddy, always said 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 impression that the property requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more comfortable for anyone viewing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house before sale, unless you have a ton of the required experience 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 be be throwing your time and hard earned cash out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super simple” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospecitve buyer. You could be found responsible for problems you did not disclose, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s impossible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People are emotional creatures, make your house warm, light, bright, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. Everyone loves cookies, particularly a cute house full of freshly baked cookie aroma.

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. Make Sure That The House Is Locked Down

Lock it up! To protect your house from crooks, 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 some tips:

Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights go on.

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