According to RealtyTrac, the Chicago home foreclosure rate has dropped off in recent months but it is still “stubbornly high.” The official count for foreclosed homes in April stood at 6,897. That is down 6.8% from March and an impressive 29% from April of last year. Still, Chicago comes in at number 15 in the country for overall foreclosure rates. While that represents bad news for those beleaguered homeowners, this is good news for potential investors who are eager to dive back into the potentially lucrative home flipping business. In terms of pricing, foreclosed homes are going to provide some of the best deals on the table. The only thing standing in your way of flipping that home would be a thorough foreclosure cleanout. That can easily be accomplished when you hire Junk King.
Often buyers of foreclosed homes do so at auctions. They aren’t even allowed to inspect the properties before making a bid. They just have to trust what the listing says. Once they have the keys in hand, those new owners could be in for a huge surprise in terms of what they might find behind those locked doors. If you find yourself in this situation, then be sure to have Junk King’s phone number at the ready. No matter what is inside that house, the Junk King crews can handle a total foreclosure cleanout without blinking an eye.
The Junk King crews have seen all kinds of trash here in Chicago. Some homeowners just need a few items removed from their tidy homes. Others have reached hoarder proportions that call for a massive cleanup effort. A foreclosed cleanout could be somewhere in between. The previous occupants might had to have left in a hurry. That means leaving behind furniture, drapes and appliances. All of that needs to be cleared out. Flipping a home means some level of remodeling. Here Junk King can be another help as they can haul away all the demolition debris from torn down kitchen cabinets, walls and yard waste. Once all that junk and trash is cleared away, you can get a true assessment of the property and begin the remodeling work in earnest. Maybe all you’ll need is a new paint job! Either way, you can depend on Junk King to provide the kind of foreclosure cleanout that will get that home ready for resale in no time.
