Need To Get rid of A Vacant Tucson Home Fast – Several Simple Tips To Get The Most For Your Property
You may be wondering why this baby is so scared about this whole property being vacant thing, well believe you me, there’s a reason! There are quite a few dangers that come along with owning a vacant house, but luckily, for you, we’ve created ———-
1. Sell Fast, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant home very quickly is vital. Liabilities of a vacant home can include:
Wanton damage and Theft
Trespassing or Squatting
Neglecting Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases the time taken to make a deal. Prospective buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more relaxed with your asking price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether you plan to repair the home before you sell, make sure to get repair quotes from more than one contractor. Your “jill of all trades sister in law” 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 uncomplicated as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.
3. Leave The Utilities On!
Papa, always said turn out the lights before you leave, but in this case leave the utilities on:
Leaving the utilities on will help prevent weather damage
If the utilities are shut off, the buyers get the impression that the property requires more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, sweetie the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more pleasant for everybody visiting the house. It gets hot out here in the summer and chilly in the winter.
4. Must Do’s If You Are Making Repairs
If you are the DIY type and want to get the house ready before sale, heed warning. First of all, you will have to spend time and money in the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you will be be throwing your 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. You can be found accountable for problems you failed to inform the buyer about, even in an as-is sale. We’re not saying it’s impossible, but be sure you measure twice and cut once.
5. Sell The Dream- 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. 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.. 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 it as difficult as possible for them to get in and make sure it looks like someone’s living in the house. Here are some tips:
Get automatic lights, it gets dark, they go on!
Make sure that miscellaneous 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 community kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 10 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 could make it look like your house is full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
