Homes for Sale-Vacant or Abandoned?

It is happening across the nation. There are many, many homes that have been left vacant. Some are vacant due to an upcoming foreclosure.

What about the rest of them? What's their story?

The story varies, but ultimately, it turns out, through all the best efforts of Realtor and Seller, a home just didn't sell in its projected time period. The timing was off, the market was flat, the price was wrong, the condition wasn't up to snuff, or the location is just not desirable.

Whatever the reason, as the home owner, you ended up with these three choices:

1. Take the house off the market and postpone the move. Re-list at a later date, when the housing market is on the move again.

* the look of neglect

Signs of a VACANT HOME:

* a comfortable room temperature

* clean and shiney (windex, windex, windex)

* a pleasant smell in the air (air fresheners-nothing overwhelming)

* blinds, slightly tilted (letting a little sun shine in)

* a few pieces of furniture

* night lights placed strategically throughout the home

* yard remains groomed ( a service, a neighborhood kid)

The feel of a home once loved.

In marketing your home, and in sales, how does the condition of these two homes come across in the eyes of the buyer?

They loved the vacant home, it showed well, it felt good to them.

The other house: it looked abandoned, it made them sad.

Frankly, if you don't care, why should a buyer?

Imagine this:

• You need to sell your house but you can't because you have let it run down over the years and it needs lots of Tender Loving Care.

• You can't fix it up because you don't have the cash.

• You are behind on the Mortgage Payments.

If this sounds like the house you have right now then read on. The solution to selling these difficult houses is surprisingly simple, and incredibly effective. The easiest way to explain a House Selling Strategy (or a House Buying Strategy for that matter) is through an example.

Here goes:

The Handyman Special

• The Situation - You are a seller with a house in a bad state of repair. It is currently worth $200 000. All the other houses in your area are worth $300 000.

• The neighbours are on your back to Renovate Your House because it is bringing down the value of their homes.

• You have had professional tradespeople in to give you quotes on the repairs. You cannot afford to pay the $30 000 for the repairs and you couldn't possibly find the time to DIY. You're too busy working to try and pay the mortgage payments for that!

Conclusion: How does this all end?

• The Bank sees a house worth $300 000 and a buyer who has a contract-for-sale for $240 000. They are delighted to lend 80% of the valuation to the buyer ($240 000). Happy Bank!

• The Seller gets $40 000 more than he/she ever believed possible and didn't have to spend a penny or lift a hammer to get it. Happy Seller!

• The Buyer gets a beautiful home decorated and renovated to THEIR Tastes and the only money spent is about $8000. NO DEPOSIT needed. The bank gave them ALL the money they needed to buy the house at the seller's price of $240 000. Wow - a beautiful $300 000 home for only $8000 cash. Happy Buyer!

So the "Handyman Special" Strategy for Selling a House has in this case resulted in Happy Seller, Happy Buyer, and Happy Banker. Now that is a WIN - WIN - WIN situation.
