Do You Need A Foreclosure Cleanout Business?

Posted by Junk King on Dec 22, 2015 9:22:00 AM


Realtors and real estate professionals who have worked with foreclosed properties know that former homeowners often feel they have little or no incentive to leave their foreclosed home in salable condition when they leave the property. And this is where a foreclosure cleanout business often comes into the picture.

Why You Need a Foreclosure Cleanout Business

The truth is that many foreclosed properties are often left with trash, abandoned furniture and other property that the previous homeowners didn't attempt to remove and haul off. Consequently, that task falls to the Realtor or some other representative of the bank or finance company that now holds the property.

Regardless of the circumstances, a foreclosed home needs a lot of preparation before it can be ready for an open house. Many Realtors and banks with a large inventory of vacated properties find that they regularlty need to hire a foreclosure cleanout business. And while cleaning and reparing a property is essential and usually included in the cleanout process, many businesses do not provide for hauling away old furniture, appliances, unwanted items and other debris that was left behind.

REOs, short sale and foreclosure transactions are complex and time-sensitive. Banks and Realtors often need cleaners on short notice and the clean out work needs to be completed with a strict turn-around time-frame. Oftentimes, foreclosed properties require a lot of work before they are even in selling condition.

3 Benefits of Using a Foreclosure Cleanout Business

  1. Reduce the loss of your own production time that is otherwise spent on debris clean up and “dump runs.”

As a real estate professional you could spend your valuable time cleaning a trashed property and and hauling it all off to the local dump, landfill or recycling center. Or you could spend your own time working on tasks that produce revenue.

  1. Minimize your overall clean up and disposal costs

It is significantly more cost effective to outsource that work to a competent and professional specialist, because every hour spent and every person engaged in clean up and disposal adds up. 

  1. Eliminate the time and effort spent managing disposal and recycling logistics

Recycling is not only a good idea, but in many instances it is required. And with landfills disappearing, the acceptable options for proper disposal and recycling of residential debris can be problematic. Getting a satisfactory foreclosure cleanout is not just a simple matter of “throwing it away.”

What's the Foreclosure Activity Picture Today?

While the new numbers are a vast improvement over eight years ago, the overall number of properties still in some phase of foreclosure activity is vast. Here is a graphic snapshot of the U.S. market as of the beginning of Q4 of 2015:
