Need To Sell A Vacant Conroe Real estate Fast – Six Simple Basic Steps To Get The Most For Your Home
You may be wondering why this baby is so upset about this whole vacancy issue, well believe us, there’s a reason! There are a lot of dangers that come along with owning a vacant home, but luckily, for you, we’ve created —
1. Sell ASAP, Or Else…
Sell a vacant property asap is important. Liabilities of a empty home can include:
Criminal damage and Theft
Trespassing or Squatting
Ignoring Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Appraise & Estimate the Cost of Repairs
Taking the initiative to get an appraisal automatically gives you credibility as a seller, and cuts down on the time taken to negotiate. Potential buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. No matter whether you plan to fix the property before you sell, be sure to get repair quotes from more than one contractor. Your “handy dandy cousin” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe me, 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 painless as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved needed repairs.
3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities
Papa, always insisted that you turn out 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 notion that the property needs more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, babe the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”
Keeping the utilities on will definitely make it more cozy for anyone visiting the house. It is hot out here in the summer and frosty in the winter.
4. Must Do’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 can produce quality work…. please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs are not 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. Most home sellers don’t know this, but you can still be found responsible for problems you don’t disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s hopeless, but ensure you measure twice and cut once.
5. Stage the House
People are emotional creatures, make your home inviting… bright, light, and charming, charming. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.
An empty house with no furniture makes prospecitve buyers work too hard to imagine what your house can be.. Staging your house helps buyers see how each space can be used.
6. Secure the House
Lock the house up! To protect your house from robbers, 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 a few tips:
Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights 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 buildup of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 13 yrs old.
Have your trustworthy “local country boy” neighbor who may or may not have a flashlight 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 full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
You can do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
