Let's look at Part 2 in our series of tips for selling a vacant home.
Consider Hiring a Caretaker
Lucky for you, that's just what we do. Homes In Transition will supply short or long-term house sitters for a nominal fee (click here for more info). Our caretakers are well qualified and often are experienced home sitters that live a nomadic lifestyle, moving from one property to another. In exchange for a place to call home for a few months they care for your property like it is their own.
When trying to sell a home tenants who are paying rent will have an expected length of occupancy which can lead to its own set of issues. Our caretakers will be out of the house by closing, making it a much better option to settle matters in a timely fashion. Using our caretaker service can also avoid possible insurance issues that come with a home being vacant. Additionally, having a caretaker looking over the property can provide a peace of mind for the owner, particularly if said owner is now living out of town.
Stay tuned for part 3 later this week!
