The The Quintessential Guide To Getting rid of A Vacant Jersey City Home 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 a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we’ve created –

 

1. Sell Quick, Or Else…

 

Get Rid of It a vacant house asap is very important. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Break-ins

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail Value & Estimate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases the time taken to make a deal. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to repair the property before you sell, make certain to get repair bids from more than one contractor. Your “jill of all trades sister in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, ask for several different professional opinions it will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as hassle-free as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Your daddy, always insisted that you 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 shut off, buyers get the notion that the house requires more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”

Keeping utilities on is going to also make it more comfy for anybody viewing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You’re 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 extremely effective you’ll more than likely be throwing your time and hard earned cash out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. Most folks don’t know this, but you can still be found responsible for issues you do not notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s impossible, but make sure you measure thrice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People are emotional creatures, make your house inviting… bright, light, and charming, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. The smell of freshly baked cookies, brings out the best memories in all of us.

Have enough furniture and décor to make the house looked lived in, this works wonders. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them 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’s a few tips:

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

Make 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 neighborhood 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 shotgun keep an eye on the house. Believe you me- s/he’ll enjoy the authority/responsibility you’ve entrusted them with.

Or you can make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?

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