In the U.S. the average homeowner moves every six-to-seven years. That means their homes are vacated for any number of reasons. And they will all need an estate cleanout.
There are times in life when people find themselves having to deal with the estate of a loved one. This is usually a hard time for these folks and taking care of those belongings can be a stressful chore.
There are usually one of four unfortunate events in life that serve to support the property, or estate, liquidation business. Typically, there is a decision to downsize due to a major lifestyle change, a divorce, perhaps crippling debt, or the death of a parent or other family member. And it is one of these events that often require estate cleanout services.
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.
We typically associate estate sales with the passing of loved ones. Or the unfortunate situations where there is no family to inherit an estate. But did you know you can auction off much of your own estate now?

Most people are familiar with estate sales, but not too many see them as a personal option for junk removal. But they can work well for large-scale downsizing.
In today's economy, liquidating a deceased family member’s estate is becoming an increasingly common task. Because a large segment of the population in the U.S. is aging, the estate sale business is expanding. And because of the increasing life spans of Americans, the parents of baby boomers are often only passing away just as their children are beginning to retire.
Dealing with house clean outs can be a chore, especially in the winter. But it doesn't have to be a do-it-yourself project.
Real estate professionals often find themselves in situations where they require a house clean out service. It is typically a time-sensitive situation, as well. Real estate deadlines can often require that property cleaning be done quickly, but sometimes the task can be a bit overwhelming.
While most everyone needs junk removal at some point, some events are harder than others. Estate cleanouts can be one of those events.
Foreclosure clean outs are bad enough, but having to clean out a property in winter can be a challenge. But you don't have to do it all yourself.
No one likes to work in the rain. Or the cold. But prepping a foreclosed property for the market can happen at any time of year, including winter. And it can be a big job. Not only is there normal house cleaning to be done, but many time there are large amounts of abandoned property and trash that has be hauled out and disposed of.
