If the utilities are off, buyers get the notion that the property needs more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping utilities on will also make it more cozy for anyone visiting the house. It is hot out here in the summer and cold in the winter.
4. Must Do’s If You’re Going To Make Repairs
If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready before sale, please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs aren’t done to a professional quality you will more than likely be throwing your spare time and money out the window.
If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super straightforward” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospecitve buyer. Most home sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found accountable for needed repairs you don’t divulge, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s not possible, but make sure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House
People buy with their emotions, make your house light, bright, charming, charming. Everyone loves cookies, particularly a cute house full of freshly baked cookie aroma.
An empty house with no furniture makes prospecitve buyers work too hard to imagine what it could be.. Make it easy on potential buyers by showing them how each space can be used.
6. Make Certain The House Is Secured
Lock the house up! To protect your house from thieves, make sure the house does not look vacant. Here are 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 accumulation of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 13 yrs old.
Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a shotgun 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 can make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
