Some Realtors or companies will attempt to sell a house as is, meaning it’s responsibility of the new owners to clean it out. Let’s face the facts, though. That property isn’t going to get nearly as good a price if it had first been cleaned out. The property deserves to be sold in its tip top shape, and that will generate you a lot more money from the sale as well!
Hire Junk-B-Gone Junk Removal Services and Let Them Save the Day When Dealing With a Foreclosed Property!This is why have a junk removal company to assist with a foreclosed home. They can come in and clean out the home, hauling everything away that won’t benefit a new homeowner. If some of the furniture left is still in good question, it can be left in the home or property and add to its value. Anything that is junk, however, can be hauled away leaving behind a property that can now be lived in or a business which can now be used by a new company.
Another benefit of a junk removal company is their efficiency. While you and a team of volunteers can come in and start hauling things away on your own, it’s likely to take a while. And this is time you could spend doing other activities such as listing the home for sale and preparing for the open house. With a team of experienced haulers and most likely a number of vehicles, a junk removal company can empty the property in a fraction of the time.
There is some waste not all junk removal can take care of, because of the risk involved. Yet, they often know what agencies to call for such waste or which businesses can safely haul it away. They can also clear the property of yard waste, old swing sets, broken tree branches, and even a broken hot tub. As all Realtors know curb appeal is crucial to getting a home sold and sold fast.
When Dealing With a Foreclosed Property or Estate Clean Out, Here are the Tips!
Cons of Buying a ForeclosureThe disadvantages of buying a distressed property can be many, and for some people outweigh the opportunity for financial gain. The potential pitfalls will vary somewhat depending on your desired property’s current stage of foreclosure. Fore example, an investor may decide to demolish the property and start fresh, or they may decide to restore the property. Getting to this stage though, you must ensure that ALL Junk and Clutter has been removed from the property so you have a spacious clean home to show to buyers!

Overdue home repairs & sub-standard property conditionsHomes in any stage of foreclosure may require significant repairs just to make them inhabitable. Pre-foreclosures are typically assumed to be a better bet in terms of home condition, but don’t forget that a homeowner is in pre-foreclosure because the owners could not keep up with their monthly mortgage payments. This might mean that they also did not have the funds to perform regular maintenance on the home or repair serious issues that arose during their occupancy in the estate. The result is things like mold buildup, broken pipes, and vermin or bug infestations. Evicted homeowners might have sold valuable appliances or done deliberate damage to the home. Uninhabited houses can also fall prey to thieves and vandals thus creating an urgency to kick the junk and clutter goodbye! While in some stages you’ll have the opportunity to inspect a foreclosure property prior to finalizing the purchase, these homes are typically sold as-is; that means no repairs can be requested as a contingency of the sale. Usually a real estate investor or home flipper will be interested in the property or estate.
Steep competitionForeclosure properties attract a lot of interest because of the incredible value they can provide, especially for home and real-estate flippers. In addition to other homebuyers seeking a primary residence, you will be competing with investors who often make all-cash offers which can be tricky because although it may seem like a good idea to get the fast cash, there are many options you have to weigh out.
Homes in the auction stage of foreclosure are particularly attractive to seasoned investors because they often present the best opportunity to acquire property at a significant discount. Those who are unaccustomed with investigating foreclosed homes or unsure of local property values might find it difficult to compete or worse, end up overpaying for an undesirable home.
Should I Buy a ForeclosureWondering if you are prepared to purchase a distressed property? If you can answer “yes” to each of these questions, buying a foreclosure could be a good choice for you.
Are my finances in order?While buying a home in foreclosure can result in a favorable purchase price, the additional costs are often significant and should not be ignored when budgeting for your home purchase. Upfront fees to research foreclosure properties, construction and repair expenses, and the cost of any inherited liens add up quickly. Be sure you are financially prepared for expenses that are not rolled into your mortgage and think about leaving a cushion for any surprises that come up along the way.
Do I have a team of professionals who can help me?Working with foreclosure experts will help your distressed property buying process go much more smoothly. Consider finding a real estate agent with connections in the foreclosure market to help you locate potential properties, an attorney familiar with the foreclosure laws in your area to review all paperwork, and a reputable general contractor to oversee any necessary home repairs.
Am I up for the rollercoaster ride?
