Why a house clean-out is not a DIY task for a real estate pro

Why a house clean-out is not a DIY task for a real estate pro

When it comes to selling houses, one of the most important things to take care of is a house clean-out. As a realtor, you already have enough on your plate as it is.

With pre-listing activities, listing appointment presentations, writing up offers, and marketing taking up your time, you really shouldn’t have to deal with house clean-outs as well. The truth is, the number of properties for sale seems to be increasing, which means there’ll be a lot more houses that need ‘cleaning up’.

As experts who have dealt with all kinds of junk, we know it’s not an easy task for people without the proper equipment and training. With that being said, here’s why you should be using a professional service:

They’ll do a more thorough job

A professional service will have trained experts with the necessary experience to do a proper job. After all, you want the house to look great, not just ‘good enough’. A house clean-out requires so much more than just hauling away boxes – you might have to get rid of yard waste, old appliances, construction debris, and furniture. Ever tried lifting a 3-seater couch by yourself? It’s not that easy. Professional companies will get rid of trash in minutes and dispose of it responsibly and legally.

It saves you time

Imagine how long it would take you to organize, pack, haul and recycle junk. And it’s not like you can just throw everything in one box and leave it on the curb – you’ll have to separate your recyclable items from your non-recyclable items. After all that, you’ll have to drive to the landfill or recycling center (which takes time too). Junk removal might take you hours or days, while an efficient company will take mere minutes. Due to the immense amount of work, really good professionals know that it is strategic and cost-effective to outsource the work to a professional property clean-out service. And since time is money, you’re essentially saving both.

It’s more convenient

When you hire a professional, that means there’s less hassle for you. There’s no need to rent a van or truck, drive to a dumping centre, and risk getting hurt while trying to haul heavy items. Whether it’s a full house clean-out, or you’re just getting rid of some old furniture, a professional junk removal company will take care of it for you. And remember, in some towns certain items are not accepted at the local dumping center, and even if they do take your junk it will cost you your time, wear and tear on your vehicle, and you will likely need help from someone else. Professional companies will also sort out your recycling for you – which means the planet is benefitting just as much as you are.

Gain peace of mind

According to this article on Shape, Americans are more stressed than ever before. Selling real estate is a challenging business, so it doesn’t make sense to add more stress to your day when you can rely on a professional service to help you out. A professional company understands the needs of realtors and that a house clean-out needs to be quick and efficient.
