The Short Six Step Guide to get the most of your vacant Los Angeles house:
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 numerous dangers that come along with owning a vacant property, but luckily, for you, Glymph Properties has created –
1. Sell Quickly, Or Else…
Getting rid of a vacant property quick is critical. Liabilities of a empty home can include:
Wanton damage and Thievery
Trespassing or Squatting
Neglecting Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Determine the Retail Value & Approximate the Cost of Repairs
Taking the initiative to get an appraisal gives you credibility as a seller, and decreases the time taken to make a deal. Buyers who can see an appraisal will feel more secure with your selling price and, in-turn, with their offer price. Whether or not you plan to fix the property before you sell, make sure to get repair bids from more than one contractor. Your “jill of all trades sister 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 simple as possible for yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems repairs.
3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities
Your daddy, always said 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 off, potential buyers get the notion that the property requires more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that will cost us.”
Keeping the utilities on will also make it more pleasant for anyone seeing the house. It’s hot out here in the summer and cool in the winter.
4. Must Do’s If You’re 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 on the house, and if the repairs aren’t extremely effective you’ll more than likely be throwing your spare 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 could be found culpable for problems you failed to inform the prospective buyer(s) about, even in an as-is sale. We are not saying it’s not possible, but ensure you measure thrice and cut once.
5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House
People buy with their emotions, make your house light, bright, charming, charming. Tell me this… who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked cookies.
An empty house with no furniture makes buyers work too hard to imagine what your house can be.. Make it easy on potential buyers by showing them how each space can be used.
6. Lock the House
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 a few tips:
Put a few lights on timers- at within a range of the pre-defined time the lights go on.
Make sure that miscellaneous 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 neighborhood kid, $5 goes a very long ways when your 10 yrs old.
Have your trustworthy “local night watch” 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 could make it look like your house is chock full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from House Party?
You can do all the above, or you can call Glymph Properties.
