Vacant Property

A vacant property drains cash flow and can lead to long-term problems like property damage, lawsuits, and squatters. Whether you want to make improvements or pass the work off to a new owner, we can help.

Tip
Unrelenting real estate expenses (taxes, loan payments, insurance, etc.) hurt. Another lesser known cost - trapped equity that can’t be reinvested in a higher yielding alternative - is even more painful. When making decisions regarding a vacant property, make sure you understand the impact of both.

Impacts

Property vacancies can be financially and emotionally stressful:

  • Competing priorities keep vacancy problems on the backburner

  • Facing a big property improvement project

  • Fear that the problem may get worse

  • Challenges of living far away from the property

  • Forced to confront overwhelming choices

  • Heightened concerns of a market downturn or unfavorable change in tax law
