TOP 5 STEPS TO TAKE WHEN MARKETING A VACANT HOME FOR SALE OR LEASE TO AVOID VANDALISM

ARIZONA FORECLOSURESWe see many homes are vacant across the county. Also, many of them have been vandalized because they were vacant. I have seen many homes where the copper was pulled out along with the hot water heater and AC. The bank will not be able to sell a home without those things. Otherwise, the bank has to take a hit on the house to move the property. So, what is one to do? Please read over the simple suggestions to avoid vandalism on a vacant home:

 

  1. Stage the home-put furniture in the house. One can hire a professional staging company or just purchase furniture from garage sales or other sources.
  2. Lived-in look-Ask the neighbor to park their car in the driveway. People will think someone lives in the house.
  3. Landscaping-Keep the landscaping up so the house has curb appeal and not neglect.
  4. Paint-Paint the walls on the inside one neutral color to give it a new look.
  5. Utilities-Keep the utilities on so one has electric and water to the house.

Good awareness post...People who squat for a living know what to look for every-time before breaking in. Imperative that the home looks occupied...good one
