Atlanta Foreclosure Clean Out

A survey conducted by the top economic consultants Standard & Poor has found that home prices in 20 major US cities dropped far lower than what was forecast back in December. In fact, some of these numbers are at their lowest level since the housing crisis began back in 2006. These low prices are having an impact on how fast our economy will rebound. Atlanta has the dubious distinction of being at the top of this survey with it 12.8% drop of prices. This distressing trend is cause for concern for many homeowners as they suddenly find themselves owing more money on a property than what it is worth. This is one of the major factors that contribute to a rise in foreclosures. On the other hand this could be good news for buyers who are looking to get into the real estate market by scooping up some of those foreclosed homes.

A foreclosed home isn’t necessarily a damaged home. It could be the previous occupants were no longer able to meet the demands of their financial obligations. That’s not the home’s fault! Unfortunately when a Atlanta homeowner has abandoned all hope they tend to get discouraged with regard to keeping their home in good shape. This might mean that in the last weeks or months of living in that home they have “let it go.” When it is time for them to finally vacate the premises they might just want to leave with a few prized possessions and leave the rest behind for someone else to deal with. While there might be some anger in that type of behavior on some level it’s understandable. However, a prospective new homeowner doesn’t need to concern themselves with the garbage that is left behind especially when they hire a company like Junk King Atlanta to handle the clean out.

Junk King Atlanta is part of a national franchise of local based businesses that specialize in junk removal. Their primary customers are homeowners and business owners who are clearing out the clutter of their lives. Typically this involves tossing out the junk that has accumulated in garages, basements and attics over the years. Getting rid of that junk could end up increasing property value because it makes the home more appealing. In the case of a foreclosure clean out the Junk King Atlanta crew can apply their same methods of removal.

On some level, a foreclosure clean out is a lot easier than cleaning out your garage. You don’t have a vested interest in the garbage that was left behind from a previous Atlanta homeowner. That’s why you can tell Junk King to take out anything that isn’t nailed down! Once all that junk is removed you’ll get a much better picture of what shape this property is in. Whether you choose to flip the home or turn it into a rental property you first need to get it cleaned. Let Junk King Atlanta handle the clean out for you.

Atlanta Hot Tub Disposal

What do Phalaenopsis, Miltoniopsis, Paphiopedilums, Cattleyas, Oncidiums and Dendrobiums all have in common? They’re all the featured orchids on proud display at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. Even though we are still in the doldrums of winter weather that doesn’t mean you can’t experience a burst of spring anytime you like with a short hop to the gardens. At the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s Fuqua Orchid Center you’ll find the newly established “Orchid Daze: Hanging Gardens” exhibit. As described in the official press release these orchids “burst forth with Technicolor tropical blossoms. Sunshine yellows, firecracker reds, deep purples, felicitous fuchsias — they cuddle up close to your eyes at this 10th annual fragrant display of all things orchid.”

As anyone who has worked with orchids will tell you they require some very delicate care. For the most part, orchids are best grown in a controlled environment such as a hothouse or indoors. That’s not to say that wild orchids can be grown in your backyard garden; you just might find that they are not dependable perennials.

Speaking of taking away the winter “blahs” have you ever tried hot tub in with snow on the ground? While it is true that there will be a race between the warmth of your home through the cold ground and into a backyard hot tub, the moment you find yourself immersed in those warm soothing waters all that cold temperature will be instantly forgotten.

Having an inviting hot tub situated in your backyard is one of the great perks of home ownership. However, it might be that you “inherited” your hot tub from the previous homeowners. If only that hot tub could talk! If an old hot tub is in need of replacement then you’ll need to hire a professional crew of junk haulers like Junk King Atlanta to dismantle and remove that hot tub in order to make way for the new model. Even if you have given up on the idea of having a hot tub (which would be a shame!) there is still a great amount of work involved in the removal process of a hot tub.

A dismantled hot tub is not something that can be thrown out in the weekly garbage. There are just too many bulky pieces that make up the construction of the tub. This is why you need to engage the services of professional junk haulers to make sure all of that refuse is removed in one trip. The last thing you want hanging out your backyard are stacks of rotting lumber and rusty water heater pumps.

If you play your cards right, there’s no reason Junk King Altanta’s haulers who are taking away the old hot tub can’t remove other items that you’ve been dying to get rid of. Take a survey of your basement, attic or garage and you’re sure to find plenty of other junk piles just waiting for a truck to take them away. Hiring these professional haulers will free up your weekend and give you more time to enjoy the orchids at the Atlanta Botanical Garden!
