Tired of Owning Your Vacant Denver Property or home- Here Are 6 Easy Techniques to Get It Sold Quickly
You may be wondering why this baby is so shocked about this whole vacancy issue, well believe us, it is for a good reasn! There are a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we have created –
1. Get Rid of It ASAP, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant house very quickly is vital. Liabilities of a empty house can include:
Wanton damage and Thievery
Trespassing or Squatting
Overlooking Regular Maintenance
Water or Fire Damage
2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes 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 property before you sell, make certain to get repair quotes 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’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the final sales price. Make the negotiations as painless as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.
3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities
Papa, always insisted that you 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 off, potential buyers get the notion that the property requires more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, babe 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 everybody visiting the house. It is hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.
4. Must Do’s If You Are Making Repairs
If you are the DIY-er type and want to get the house ready before sale, please do not. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs are not extremely effective you’ll more than likely be throwing your time and hard earned income out the window.
Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. You could be found culpable for problems you failed to reveal, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s not possible, but ensure 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, charming. 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 your house can be.. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.
6. Lock the House
Lock the house up! To protect your house from crooks, make sure the house does not look vacant. Here are 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 indications 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 long ways when your 13 yrs old.
Have your local community watch member who may or may not have mace keep an eye on the house. Trust 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.
