Sick & Tired of Owning Your Vacant Phoenix Real estate- Here Are 6 Easy Strategies to Get It Sold Quickly
After you get done laughing, you’re probably asking yourself… why is that baby so freaked out about house vacancy? Trust us, it’s for a good reason! There are countless dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, we’ve created —
1. Sell ASAP, Or Else…
Get Rid of It a vacant home quick is important. Liabilities of a unoccupied home can include:
Wanton damage and Thievery
Trespassing or Squatting
Overlooking Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Determine the Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs
Having an appraisal automatically 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 relaxed with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Regardless of whether or not you plan to repair the house before you sell, make sure to get repair bids from more than one source. Your “jack of all trades brother-in law” may “know” what s/he is talking about, but believe us, 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 easy as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.
3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities
Papa, always said turn off 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 notion that the house is in need of more repairs than in reality, for example, “Well, honey the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping utilities on will also make it more pleasant for everybody visiting the house. It gets 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, please don’t. First of all, you will have to spend time and money on the house, and if the repairs aren’t done to a professional quality you’ll be be throwing your time and money out the window.
If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super easy” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospective buyer(s). Most folks don’t know this, but you can still be found responsible for problems you don’t divulge, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s hopeless, but ensure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Dream- Stage The House
People buy with their emotions, make your house inviting… bright, light, and charming, nothing says home more than a batch of freshly baked cookies. The smell of freshly baked cookies, brings out the best memories in all of us.
Have enough furniture and décor to make the house looked lived in, this works wonders. Make it easy on potential buyers by showing them how each space can be used.
6. Secure 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’s a few 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 build up of phone books, door hangers, newpapers etc. Ask a local community kid, $5 goes a long ways when your 12 yrs 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?
