Have a Vacant Home? Every Penny Counts!
There is a glut of vacant homes in most major cities in the US today. Whether the owner had to move due to relocation, divorce, or other reasons, vacant homes that are for sale or in probate are suseptible to high holding costs. There is a solution!
With thousands of single family homes for sale and currently vacant – You need an edge as a seller. You can’t afford to be just another vacant home on the block. Your home may be vacant due to downsizing, divorce, foreclosure, death, loss of job, moving out of state and so much more. Many homeowners don’t know where to turn in this sudden and unknown situation. There is help; it’s called “Home Management”. Here’s how it works.
A professional “Home Manager” occupies your vacant home until sold. Home Managers are similar to house sitters and basically “house sit” your home when you no longer occupy it yourself. They are not renters. You may not want to have a long term lease or deal with tenant issues. Home Managers bring in their own furniture (so there is no added staging cost). They are often professionals in transition themselves, who are looking to buy a home in the near future. The Home Manager understands the home is for sale and maintains the home “show ready” at all times and agrees to move once the home is sold.
This really is so helpful to the homeowner since the monthly costs can mount because many homes in today’s market are for sale for months, if not longer. Often we forget the monthly “holding costs” such as electricity, water, gas, pool, yard maintenance and sometimes HOA dues. These costs can add up and take away from the homeowner’s profit! You do not want to take “one penny” away from your bottom line. With the glut of homes on the market today and tightening of mortgage qualifications homes can sit for longer than desired.
We all know a vacant home does not show well, and gives the impression of being distressed which brings in low ball offers. Also thieves and vandals are attracted to a vacant residence. A small water leak or other maintenance issues may be missed and escalate because your property is no longer being maintained and no one is present to catch problems when they arise. This added stress is not what you need when you want to sell your home. Another issue to consider is the insurance coverage on the home. When you move out, your homeowner’s policy may no longer cover the vacant home.
Statistics show that an occupied home sells up to 30% faster and usually brings 7-10% more money at closing. Your home is your castle and you deserve to reap the rewards by having your home cared for as if you were still present. Don’t abandon your valuable asset!
Realtors and homeowners need an edge and they realize every penny lost is a deduction from the bottom line. An occupied home with a professional Home Manager is a perfect answer to today’s real estate market as well as helping to reduce these costs.
