As a real estate professional, you know how to sell houses. You understand how to market them, how to negotiate with buyers and sellers, and how to help your buyers get a great deal. All of this takes a lot of time and effort. When you have a property that is full of garbage, you know it’s going to sell faster and for more money if you have it cleaned out.
Normally, this is something you would ask the seller to deal with. However, there are times when that’s not an easy option. The seller may live out of state, or you may have been hired by a lender to sell a foreclosed property. Maybe you even purchased the property yourself to flip or invest in as a rental. No matter what the reason, you don’t have time to deal with the garbage. That’s where Junk King Cincinnati comes in. We can help you take care of all the trash and other junk at a property quickly and affordably. Here are a few of the benefits realtors get when they pair with us.
You Don’t Have to Do Any of the Work
Perhaps the biggest benefit to working with Junk King is that you don’t have to do any of the work. Just call us up, tell us what you need, and accept our estimate. You can tell us what you need removed over the phone or text some photos to us. If you’re dealing with a major hoarder house or foreclosure, we can meet you at the property and do a walkthrough to give you the most accurate quote possible. We will also likely bring one of our trucks with us so we can get started right then and there if you’re agreeable.
That’s it. You don’t have to do anything else. We will take notes on what you want us to take or, in the event of a large amount of junk, what few items you want us to leave. You let us know what you need us to do, and we will take care of it. That includes yard debris and other garbage on the outside of the home in addition to the trash inside.
This leaves your team free to work on selling the home and your other tasks. You don’t need to coordinate renting a truck or hiring people to come load it up. We take care of that plus all the necessary dumping fees, recycling fees, and any other extra charges. They’re all built into our very transparent estimate. If you have any questions about any of these fees, please ask.
Junk hauling may seem like a fairly straightforward task, but there are a few major differences between us and the average person trying to load up a truck of garbage. Our team understands how to safely move heavy and bulky appliances and furniture. We can get that old sofa or broken refrigerator through the tightest spaces, and we will do so without scratching up the walls or floor.
We also know the proper method for lifting and carrying items. If you have your employees, the sellers, or a few friends try to move heavy objects, they could hurt themselves. This could come back on you as the business owner or on the sellers as the property owners. No one wants to have to deal with the insurance nightmare that could come from someone being injured like this. We know how to safely lift heavy objects, and we have safety gear such as back braces to assist in preventing injuries.
We Bring the Right Equipment
To move some large appliances and furniture, you need to have a dolly or lifting straps. You may not have either of these items. We have this equipment and more that helps make the moving process easier and safer. Without the right equipment, you’re more likely to injure yourself or damage the home you’re trying to sell. We always bring all of our equipment to every job, so we have everything on hand.
Our trucks are large enough to handle almost any project. If you were using your own truck, it could take several trips. We can typically take everything in one load. These large vehicles are designed to haul a large amount of heavy items, too, so they’re better equipped than a standard pickup truck.
Empty Houses Sell Better
If you have a foreclosed property or have been hired by a seller to sell a home that is still full of stuff, you’re going to have a hard time getting buyers to be interested. Many of them are going to take one look at all the junk in the home and decide to look elsewhere, even if the house is in a great location and in good shape. All of the clutter, especially if it’s old furniture, broken appliances, and trash, is going to greatly decrease the attractiveness of the home.
We will come in and get rid of all of that junk. Once we’ve cleaned out the property, you can come in with the seller and make minor repairs or other changes. Then you can lead potential buyers through the home knowing that they will be able to better see the house for what it is. Even if the property is being sold as-is, potential flippers will be able to get a better sense of the space once it’s emptied out.
When you remove everything from a room, it’s going to look bigger. This can be very important if you have a small property you’re trying to sell. The larger each room seems, the more likely it is that a potential buyer will be interested in it. If some of this junk is blocking windows, having it hauled off will help bring more natural light into the house, too.
We Haul Away Yard Debris, Too
You may have a property that looks amazing on the inside, but the exterior is full of dead bushes, fallen limbs, and other debris. That brings down the curb appeal of the property, and some potential buyers may decide not to even look inside the home because the outside looks so bad.
Junk King will come in and remove all of this yard waste. Whether it’s clipping, branches, old fencing, lumber, or other types of yard debris, we’ll quickly remove it so your landscaping crew can transform the property. Even if you don’t have landscapers coming, getting rid of this debris will make the space look larger and safer. That can be a major factor in whether or not someone buys a home. Parents, for example, may not want to purchase a house that has a backyard full of downed limbs, unsafe equipment, or broken fence posts.
Buyers See Junk as an Expense
The bottom line is that buyers see junk as another expense that they will have to deal with. Whether it’s removing all the junk inside a house or dealing with debris in the yard, they’re going to either haul it away themselves or pay to have it done. Some buyers may make it their offer contingent on the junk being removed, while others may submit offers lower than the asking cost because the home is full of garbage. While lenders may just want to offload their foreclosed properties and not necessarily expect to make any profit, sellers will want to get every dollar they can. Spending a little to remove the junk can boost the selling price by a good amount.
We Protect Your Bottom Line
No one wants to spend more money than they have to for anything, including junk hauling. We recognize that your sellers aren’t going to have a lot of money to spend, especially if they have to do costly repairs or updates on the home to get it on the market. That’s why we make our services as affordable as possible.
Our pricing structure is based on how much space your garbage takes up. You won’t pay for an entire garbage truck if all you have is an old refrigerator to haul away. Even if you do have an entire house full of garbage to get rid of, we will carefully measure how much space it takes up so you only pay for what you use. The end result is that you spend less money on junk hauling, giving your sellers more of a profit.
