Tired of Owning Your Vacant Pittsburgh Property- Here Are 6 Easy Strategies to Get It Sold 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 numerous dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we have created ———-

 

1. Get Rid of It ASAP, Or Else…

 

Getting rid of a vacant house asap is important. Liabilities of a unoccupied house can include:

 

Wanton damage and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Deterioration

Overlooking Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Appraise & Approximate the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to make a deal. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to fix the home before you sell, be sure to get repair bids from more than one contractor. Your “jill of all trades sister in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, ask for many 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 simple as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.

3. Leave The Utilities On!

Your daddy, always insisted that you 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, buyers get the idea that the house is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetheart the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more comfortable for everyone visiting the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.

4. Must Do’s If You’re Going To Make 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 in the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you’ll more than likely be throwing your spare time and hard earned cash out the window.

Also, if you do not complete all the repairs, make sure you disclose all the repairs needed. Most folks don’t know this, but you can still be found answerable for issues you do not notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s not possible, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.

5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House

People buy with their emotions, 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. Ensure The House Is Secured

Lock the house up! To protect your house from trespassers, 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 random items are picked up by someone. One of the best signals 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 long ways when your 12 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 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.
