If you’re the agent or bank representative tasked with getting a foreclosure ready for auction or resale, the job may be quite challenging depending on the state the property was left in when the previous owners moved out.
Many owners are responsible, and pack up all of their belongings to start the recovery process of being foreclosed upon. Others do very little, leaving behind whatever they don’t care to take with them.
Some foreclosures sustain a great deal of damage from previous owners who have neglected the home, or taken their frustration out on the interior causing as much damage as they can before they leave.
Whatever the state of the home when the bank repossesses it, it’s up to you to put it back in one piece so that it’s in better shape for potential buyers. A big part of this process may be best served by hiring a Foreclosure Cleanout professional.
Benefits of Foreclosure Cleanout Companies
Foreclosure cleaners don’t just provide junk removal services of an ordinary cleaning company.
In addition to general cleaning, they do what it takes to get the property back in order to include removing just about anything:
- Hazardous material
- Fixtures and etc.
Most important is that they are providing a truly healthy home atmosphere for a potential buyer.
Foreclosure cleanout companies don’t just cover the interior of the home. They clean all aspects of the property, to include the front and back exterior portions of the lot, which may include significant removal of trash, furniture, and general debris.
Sometimes dealing with the mess left behind in a foreclosure can be a risky business. Whoever’s doing the clean up may run risk of causing further damage or getting hurt themselves.
Plus there’s the risk endured while cleaning up potentially hazardous messes like rodent infestation or pet waste. Foreclosure cleanout companies are insured, so that if incidents occur the investment is still protected.
Foreclosure cleanout companies know exactly how and where to dispose of different materials left behind in the home. Items like paint and motor oil can’t just go to a landfill. These companies can separate out anything that’s not appropriate for traditional junk removal and dispose of those items separately.
A Trusted Solution
A good foreclosure cleanout company will have a reputation for quality and dependability, along with the references to back it up. If you’re an agent or bank rep responsible for preparing the house for market, knowing you’ve hired a professional, you can trust will give you proper peace of mind that the job will get done and done well.
Asking potential buyers to look past all the trash, debris, and damage that sometimes accompanies foreclosed homes is a tall order. Most buyers have a hard time just looking past a bad paint color in a room, let alone a severely neglected home.
A dirty house with toxic debris is definitely a health hazard for people and the environment and surely no one wants to move their family into an unhealthy environment that could cause serious health problems immediately or in the future. When purchased a house we all want the peace of mind that you have a healthy home that is safe for our families.
Hiring a professional to clean out and freshen up a foreclosed home will give you the advantage you need to get a better price for a property that’s already a steal for potential buyers.
