Tired of Owning Your Vacant Property- Here Are Six Easy Tips to Get It Sold Quickly

 

You may be wondering why this baby is so shocked about this whole property being vacant thing, well believe us, it’s for a good reasn! There are a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we’ve created —

 

1. Sell Fast, Or Else…

 

Sell a vacant home very quickly is imperative. Liabilities of a empty property can include:

 

Criminal damage and Theft

Trespassing or Squatting

Weather Damages

Ignoring Regular Maintenance

Fire or Water Damage

 

2. Appraise & Make Your Best Guess For the Cost of Repairs

Having an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and minimizes the time taken to make a deal. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more at ease with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to fix the house before you sell, make certain 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 easy as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.

3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities

Your daddy, 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, buyers get the impression that the property is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, honey the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us.”

Keeping utilities on will definitely make it more comfortable for anyone visiting the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.

4. Have To’s If You Are Making Repairs

If you are the DIY-er type and want to fix up the house 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 are not extremely effective you will 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 people don’t know this, but you can still be found answerable for problems you don’t notify the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s hopeless, but make sure you measure thrice 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. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.

An empty house with no furniture makes 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 it up! To protect your house from burglars, make sure the house does not look vacant. Here are some tips:

It gets dark, the lights come on!

Be sure that miscellaneous items are picked up by someone. One of the best indications that no one is or has been home is the build up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community 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 you me- s/he’ll enjoy the authority/responsibility you’ve entrusted them with.

Or you can make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?
