5 Real Estate Clean Out Scenarios [Tips]

Posted by Junk King on Feb 13, 2018 6:03:00 AM
Homeowners sell every six-to-seven years an average. Some homes are left behind as part of an estate, while others are rentals that are vacated regularly. And they all need clean outs.


Foreclosures have steadily declined across the market, but home sales have gone up significantly over the past year or so.  As the Baby Boomer generation continues to age, go into retirement, and increasingly downsize and relocate, real estate professionals are staying busy.

Odds are, as a real estate professional, you are that you are probably dealing with any number of these scenarios yourself. In addition, you are likely to be dealing with estate sales, vacated rentals in need of major clean outs, and homes that have been remodeled just prior to going on the market.

All of these situations lend themselves to the need for home clean outs. And that is something that, while certainly necessary, is not a task most folks want to take on.

In fact, according to a number of studies, the average homeowner sells their home after living there about six years. In that time there can be large quantities of accumulated items that often end up being left in the garage, on the side of the house, or in a basement.

And, once the previous homeowners have moved out, all items they didn't bother to take with them and simply left behind, needs to be cleaned up and hauled away. While it may seem harsh to refer to these items as “junk” the fact is that in order for a real estate agent to show the home or have it prepared for the new owners, a property clean out is needed so these items can be removed.

Junk Hauling Services and Real Estate Professionals

The fact is, cleaning out a vacant home or rental property doesn't have to be a DIY project for any real estate professional. In addition to having a good cleaning service to clean the interior of a property, finding a good junk hauling service is needed, as well.

Many house clean outs and foreclosure clean outs require removing and hauling the junk, furniture and other debris that is often left behind. And this is not always a job just anyone can do. Nor should they have to!

For example, foreclosed homes are sometimes sold in an “as-is” condition,which means the foreclosing institution doesn’t make any major repairs. But a good real estate professional knows that it is still necessary to clean out the property prior to an open house and subsequent sale.

And because of the amount of work that's often needed, really good professionals know that it is more cost-effective in those cases to outsource the work to a professional foreclosure clean out service like Junk King.

In addition, a quality junk hauling firm will work hard to protect and preserve your collateral throughout the foreclosure process and up to the sale of property. They understand the needs of real estate professionals and are knowledgeable of investor/insurer guidelines so that all the work is completed in accordance with the applicable specifications.

There are five major real estate clean out situations where the real estate professional can benefit from a quality junk hauling service:
