Lasting Impressions Home Management (LIHM) specializes in vacant home marketing and management.
Our free service will transform your vacant house into a beautifully furnished model home. New homebuilders conceived the “model home” concept, when they found potential buyers could not visualize how a home might appear with furnishings. We have taken this idea and used it to develop a comprehensive program to help market vacant homes.
Why Use A Professional, Lasting Impressions Home Management?
Lasting Impressions Home Managements’ number one priority is to help sell your vacant home faster and for more money. USA Today reports that a professionally managed property can sell about 30% faster and for about 12% more money than a comparable vacant home.
Reduce the Liabilities Associated with Vacant Homes
Our service will significantly reduce the costs you currently have in maintaining your vacant home. The Home Manager pays all electric, gas, water, and trash removal bills. The Home Manager is also required to provide a $300,000 liability insurance policy which in turn saves you thousands of dollars in excessive premiums charged for insuring a vacant house. In Texas, insurance companies will either cancel your insurance or significantly increase your premiums after your home has been vacant for more than 60 days.
Home Manager Responsibilities
Our service can help preserve your asset, reduce your holding costs, lower your insurance costs and enhance the marketability of your vacant home. LIHM provides these benefits by providing professionally screened, highly qualified and closely supervised “Home Managers” to ensure your home is beautifully furnished, maintained and ready to show at all times.
The Home Manager helps protect your home from vandalism, insects and pests, stale odors prevalent in vacant houses, weather related damage and deterioration. The Home Manager also maintains your yard, performs minor maintenance and repairs, and gives your home a friendly, furnished, model-home appearance. We perform unannounced inspections to ensure that your home is always kept in Show to Sell condition. Having a Homemanager adds “life” to your property.
What is the Profile of a Home Manager?
Home Managers are mature, responsible adults that provide their own furnishings,
which we use to give your home a model home look. Home managers must have
beautiful furnishings, and be nonsmokers. They pay us a small monthly
fee to participate in our program.
In addition to providing a well maintained and beautifully decorated home, after the Home Manager has moved in, we offer an Agent Open House to help promote your property to area Realtors. We’ve developed a great reputation and usually get a large turn out of Realtors. The open house generates new excitement and showings for your house.
Since our goal is to help you sell your house, our Home Managers are prepared to vacate the premises with as little as l4 days notice.
