Tired of Owning Your Vacant Scottsdale Home- Here Are A Few Easy Techniques to Get It Sold Quickly
You may be wondering why this baby is so shocked about this whole house being unattended thing, well believe you me, it is for a good reasn! There are countless dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we’ve created ———-
1. Get Rid of It Quick, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant property quick is essential. Liabilities of a empty property can include:
Wanton damage and Thievery
Trespassing or Squatting
Ignoring Regular Maintenance
Water or Fire Damage
2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate 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. Potential 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 renovate the house before you sell, make sure to get repair bids from more than one contractor. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, ask for several 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 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:
Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage
If the utilities are shut off, buyers get the impression that the property needs more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”
Keeping the utilities on will probably also make it more pleasant for everybody seeing the house. It is hot out here in the summer and nippy in the winter.
4. Have To’s If You Are 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 are not extremely effective you’re going to be be throwing your spare time and hard earned cash out the window.
If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those ” simple” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the buyer. You could be found culpable for problems you failed to reveal, even in an as-is sale. We’re not declaring it’s impossible, but be sure you measure twice 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. Everyone loves cookies, particularly a cute house full of freshly baked cookie aroma.
An empty house with no furniture makes buyers work too hard to imagine what it could be.. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them how each space can be used.
6. Make Sure That The House Is Locked Down
Lock the house up! To protect your house from trespassers, make it as difficult as possible for them to get in and make sure it looks like someone’s living in the house. Here’s some tips:
Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!
Be sure that random items are picked up by someone. One of the best signs that no one is or has been home is the accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 10 years old.
Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray keep an eye on the house. Trust 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 chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?
You could very well do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
