Tired of Owning Your Vacant Jersey City Property- Here Are 6 Easy Steps to Get It Sold Fast

 

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 so many dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we’ve created –

 

1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant property fast is essential. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Vandalism and Break-ins

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Destruction

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Water or Fire Damage

 

2. Determine the Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and reduces the time taken to negotiate. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to repair the property before you sell, make certain to get repair bids from more than one contractor. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, 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 uncomplicated as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Papa, 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, buyers get the notion that the property is in need of more repairs than it actually does, 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 pleasant for anyone viewing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You’re Making 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 in the house, and if the repairs are not done to a professional quality you’re going to be be throwing your spare time and money out the window.

If you are going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super straightforward” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). You could be found culpable for problems you didn’t warn the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s impossible, 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 home inviting… bright, light, and 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. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.

6. Secure the House

Lock it up! To protect your house from criminals, make sure the house doesn’t look unoccupied. Here’s some tips:

Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they 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 buildup of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 12 yrs 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 chock 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.
