Real estate junk removal is often a critical part of a house sale after the old owners move out. And summer is traditionally the peak selling and junk hauling season.
Researchers at Zillow discovered in a new study that homes listed between May 1 through May 15 sold, on average, around 18.5 days faster than homes that weren’t listed during that time frame. Homes that sold in the first half of May were also purchased for about 1 percent more than the average listing, which translates to a premium of about $1,700.
So the end of May and beginning of June are typically the busiest times for residential real estate professionals - and for moving! And all those people moving out of their old homes typically leave behind quite a bit of junk or have to get it hauled off before they go.
Home Sales Lower, But the Market is Improving
The 2016 housing season kicked off the spring with a record low number of homes for sale. According to the National Association of Realtors, the overall number of homes listed for sale in December 2015 was down nearly 4 percent from the same time last year, but the number of homes sold was up nearly 8 percent.
President’s Day is traditionally the weekend real estate agents recognize as the start of the spring housing season. This time, even with new listings coming on to the market, the inventory was still smaller than in previous years.
In a recent article in The Huffington Post, Svenja Gudell, Zillow’s chief economist noted,
“There’s a low supply of homes for sale this year, which has increased buyer competition. Therefore, home shoppers who start their search in early spring may not be able to secure a house as quickly or easily as they’d hoped. By May they’ll be anxious to find a home before the next school year — and will be more willing to pay a premium to close the deal.”
This all adds up to a slightly smaller, but very robust number of houses being sold. And, for the homeowners and real estate agents, that means more residential junk removal.

Home For Sale – Junk Hauling Needed!
According to most studies, the average homeowner sells their home after about six years. In that time there are typically large quantities of accumulated items left in the garage, on the side of the house or in a basement.
Once the previous homeowners have moved out, whatever items they have neglected to take with them, or simply left behind, needs to be cleaned up and hauled away.
While it may seem a bit harsh to refer to someone’s household items as “junk” the fact is, in order for a real estate agent to show the home or have it prepared for the new owners, these items needs to be removed.
This task may take the form of a full property clean out to something as small as removing a couch or other piece of abandoned furniture. The list of household type items that can be hauled out by professional trash removal companies include mattresses, appliances, old furniture, computers, electronics, and even old carpet or flooring.
During the unfortunate instances of a foreclosure, a home is often left in a damaged or cluttered condition. Sometimes the prior occupants will leave personal belongings behind and even furniture, appliances, and other large items. This is where professional junk removal companies can be a great resource.
A professional junk hauling firm will help get the property in salable condition and on the market as quickly as possible.
