Real estate agents know that a vacant property causes a loss of negotiating leverage with a prospective buyer. A buyer may see a vacant home as distressed, and provide a lower offer than if the home was attractively decorated. Statistics prove that a furnished, well maintained home has a higher perceived value, and sells faster than a vacant or tenant occupied property.
How does this work for me?
By placing a Resident Manager into your vacant listing, you benefit from a beautifully furnished "Model Home" atmosphere. Operational costs (utilities, lawn, upkeep, maintenance, pool care) are paid by the Resident Manager, freeing your client of added costs, and keeping their homeowner's insurance policy from escalating dramatically due to a vacant dwelling!!
