Tired of Owning Your Vacant Newark House- Here Are 6 Easy Ideas to Get It Sold Fast
You may be wondering why this baby is so afraid about this whole property being empty thing, well believe us, it is for a good reasn! There are a large number of dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we’ve created ———-
1. Get Rid of It Quickly, Or Else…
Getting rid of a vacant home swiftly is significant. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:
Criminal damage and Burglary
Trespassing or Squatting
Neglecting Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Determine the Retail Value & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs
Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to negotiate. 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 renovate the property before you sell, make sure to get repair estimates from more than one source. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, ask for several different professional opinions it’ll save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the sales price. Make the negotiations as simple as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.
3. Leave The Utilities On!
Your daddy, always said 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 off, potential buyers get the idea that the property requires more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”
Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more pleasant for everybody visiting the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.
4. Have To’s If You’re Going To Make Repairs
If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house before sale, unless you have a ton of the required experience please do not. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you’ll more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned money out the window.
Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. You can be found culpable for problems you failed to reveal, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s not possible, but be sure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House
People buy with their emotions, make your home warm, light, bright, charming. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.
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. Make Certain The House Is Secured
Lock the house up! To protect your house from crooks, make sure the house doesn’t look unoccupied. Here’s a few tips:
Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they 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 buildup of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 12 yrs old.
Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a gun 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 Home Alone?
You could quite possibly do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
