Tired of Owning Your Vacant Riverside Real estate- Here Are A Few Easy Techniques to Get It Sold Fast
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 house very quickly is significant. Liabilities of a vacant property can include:
Criminal damage and Thievery
Trespassing or Squatting
Overlooking Regular Maintenance
Fire or Water Damage
2. Appraise & Approximate 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. Prospective 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 fix the house before you sell, make sure to get repair bids from more than one source. 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 will save you time, money, and give you a step up when negotiating the final sales price. Make the negotiations as hassle-free as possible on yourself… get quotes on any percieved problems/needed repairs.
3. Don’t Turn Off The Utilities
Your daddy, always said turn out 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, the buyers get the notion that the property needs more repairs than it actually does, for example, “Well, darling the lights, heater/ac, or water don’t work, that’ll cost us a pretty penny.”
Keeping the utilities on will also make it more comfy for everyone visiting the house. It’s 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 get the house ready 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 done to a professional quality you’ll more than likely be throwing your time and hard earned income out the window.
If you’re going to attempt the repairs yourself, and somehow don’t complete all those “super simple” repairs, make sure to disclose them to the prospecitve buyer. Most folks don’t know this, but you can still be found accountable for problems you do not disclose, even in an as-is sale. We are not declaring it’s impossible, but be sure you measure twice and cut once.
5. Sell The Sizzle, Not The Steak- Stage The House
People are emotional creatures, make your home warm, light, bright, charming. Everyone loves cookies, particularly a cute house full of freshly baked cookie aroma.
Have enough furniture and décor to make the house looked lived in, this works wonders. Make it easy on prospective buyers by showing them how each space can be used.
6. Lock the House
Lock the house up! To protect your house from crooks, make sure the house does not look empty. Here’s 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 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 long ways when your 10 years old.
Have your local community watch member who may or may not have pepperspray 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 full of people. Anyone remember the party scene from Home Alone?
