Long Islander's Do You Have A Suffolk County Vacant House To Sell?

Real Estate Agent with The Top Team @ Charles Rutenberg Realty 255 Executive Dr, Plainview NY 11803
Do you have a Long Island North Shore vacant house to sell, but you don't live in town anymore. How do you choose the right REALTOR®?
We know there are many reasons why a house can be empty before it goes on the market. The owner was transferred to another job in another state, someone may have passed away, the family may have had to put the owner in a facility, it may have been an investment property that they now want to sell, or maybe they just had to "skip" town real fast!
There are advantages to listing a vacant house. It's an "easy show". We don't have to worry about showing times, disrupting family activities, Fido's barking, or waking sleeping members of the household. We are willing to meet inspectors, appraisers, repairmen etc. Another advantage is that buyers can usually move in quickly. We don't have to worry about the sellers finding another a home to move to, or getting rid of years of "stuff" they have accumulated.
Nowadays there are so many ways reach the sellers by phone, text, email, WhatApp, Messenger, Zoom, or whatever method or app that will be new on the horizon for communicating. Selling an unoccupied residence usually goes smoothly and is ready for the new buyer.
However, keep in mind that a vacant house needs attention too.
We will need to keep an eye on the house. We gather any newspapers or local ads, check to make sure there aren't any leaks, make sure the lawn service is keeping the gardens mowed and trimmed, we keep the temperature in the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. We also suggest to the owners to keep a lamp light on a timer, and if possible, have motion sensors on the outside so that the lights are on when someone is at the door.

Selling your Long Island vacant house doesn't have to be difficult. Just make sure you work with the right Real Estate Team. Call Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff at our Cell 631-805-4400, and know that you made the right choice on Long Island.

Vacant listings certainly sell quicker and for more money because it allows them to be shown more often than homes that are occupied.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 good morning, Sheila and Larry... I always end up virtually staging my vacant listings... they just seem to get more traffic and interest than when people look at empty rooms on line.

Good information, and I so agree with most points.  I do know a vacant small home shows bigger when empty.

You have the process down well.  If I had a house to sell in your area, I would definitely call the "L&S Team" as Wayne Martin has aptly named you.

HI Larry and Sheila- well said. I've staged many vacant homes for out-of-town sellers and thanks to today's technology and agents like the two of you who will stay on top of the condition of the property, it can be done.
