 The Ultimate Guide To Selling A Vacant Newark House Quickly

 

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 number of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we’ve created –

 

1. Get Rid of It Quick, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant property very quickly is critical. Liabilities of a vacant home can include:

 

Vandalism and Thievery

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Appraise & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically 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. Regardless of whether you plan to repair the home before you sell, make sure to get repair bids from more than one contractor. Your “handy dandy cousin” 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 uncomplicated as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, always said turn off 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 shut off, buyers get the impression that the house requires more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”

Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more pleasant for anyone viewing the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to get the house ready 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 are not extremely effective you will more than likely be throwing your time and money out the window.

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

5. Stage the House

People are emotional creatures, make your house inviting… bright, light, and charming, charming. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.

An empty house with no furniture makes buyers work too hard to imagine what it could be.. Make it easy on buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Lock the House

Lock it up! To protect your house from robbers, make sure the house does not look unoccupied. 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 miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best signs 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 very long ways when your 13 years old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have mace 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 can 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.
