Tired of Owning Your Vacant Home- Here Are Six Easy Steps to Get It Sold Fast

 

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

 

1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant property very quickly is important. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Criminal damage and Burglary

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Neglecting Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Retail Value & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs

Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to negotiate. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more comfortable with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to repair the house before you sell, be sure to get repair bids from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” 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 final 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:

Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage

If the utilities are off, buyers get the idea that the house needs more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more comfy for anyone seeing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re Making Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to get the house ready before sale, unless you can produce quality work…. please do not. 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 will more than likely be throwing your time and hard earned money 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 prospective buyer(s). You could be found liable for problems you did not warn the buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s not possible, but make sure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House

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

Have enough furniture and décor to make the house looked lived in, this works wonders. Make it easy on potential buyers by showing them how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock the house up! To protect your house from criminals, 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.

Make sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best signals that no one is or has been home is the pile-up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 15 years old.

Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray keep an eye on the house. Believe you me- s/he’ll enjoy the authority/responsibility you’ve entrusted them with.

Or you could make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?

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