Being a real estate professional is a demanding job. It’s more than just showing people houses. There’s a lot of paperwork involved, and you have to know real estate law inside and out. If you represent sellers, you also have to know how to prepare their homes for listing and how to market them. In fact, marketing is one of the biggest aspects of a real estate expert’s job. Before you can start that process, though, the home has to be made photo- and video-ready.
That’s where being able to call upon Junk King Cincinnati can be so beneficial. There are several different reasons why real estate professionals have partnered with us for junk hauling services. If you’re in real estate and have had to deal with bulk trash before, here are some reasons why you may want to reach out to Junk King Cincinnati.
Staged or Empty Houses Sell Better
If you show a client a house full of clutter, they may not be able to see beyond the homeowner’s furniture, photos, and knickknacks. It’s hard to imagine yourself living in a space when someone else’s stuff is all over it. That’s why most real estate professionals recommend that sellers remove as many personal items as possible and stage the home. Staging showcases the house’s strengths while also appearing very impersonal. It allows someone to think about how they would use the space themselves, not how the space is currently being used.
If the seller can’t afford a stager and has already moved out, the next best option is to show an empty house. Again, this helps the potential buyer envision how they would use the space. Unfortunately, many sellers leave behind whatever they don’t want. They may plan on getting rid of that old mattress, busted refrigerator, and other items eventually, but doing so wasn’t high on their list. Instead, they moved everything they wanted out and left you to sell the home. This can be the case with any seller, but it often occurs with those who have had to move out of state or who have had to move quickly.
Junk King will come in and clear out anything that the homeowner doesn’t want. Whether it’s nothing more than an old bed or an entire basement full of old stuff, we’ll get the house emptied out so you can do what you do best: sell it.
Curb Appeal is Vital
Curb appeal is one of the most important parts of preparing a home for the market. If someone pulls up to the house and sees overgrown landscaping, peeling paint, and other issues, they may not even get out of their car. If you have a client who needs to boost their curb appeal, they may need to mow, trim up the bushes, cut some tree limbs, repaint their home, and much more. It can be a lot of work, and it can result in a lot of debris. Junk King takes yard waste and DIY construction waste, so we can haul off all of those dead limbs, old planters, and much more.
While it may not immediately turn off potential buyers, the backyard is still an important part of any home. If the house you’re showing has a large backyard, it’s going to be an easier sell for those who have children or dogs. However, if the backyard is an overgrown jungle, it’s not going to be easy for anyone to see its potential. Junk King can remove the yard waste, but we can do much more than that. If your client has to replace their fence or tear down an old shed, we can haul away the debris. We take fencing, demolished sheds, old playhouses and swing sets, old decks, and other backyard debris. Of course, we can take any trash that was in the shed, too.
We’ll Take Other Construction Waste, Too
In addition to hauling away yard waste and other debris, we can haul off debris from inside the house. If the seller decides they need to replace some of the flooring, cabinets, sinks, or other items, all they need to do is complete the demolition. Junk King Cincinnati will come in and haul away the trash once it’s ready to go.
If your client is doing a fairly large renovation, they may actually need to rent a dumpster. We provide rental dumpsters that are designed to fit perfectly in most driveways without damaging the concrete. This dumpster can hold a large amount of debris, and anything that can go in our trucks can go in it. That means you can put anything except hazardous waste in the dumpster. Once the dumpster is full or the client is done with it, we come and haul it off. It’s that easy.
Some Real Estate Professionals Dabble in Flipping
Some real estate agents focus on helping clients buy and sell properties, but some have decided to expand into the flipping business. If you’re one of these realtors turned flippers, you know how much goes into transforming a home. You may be able to pick up the property for very little, but it can take a lot of time, work, and money to make it into the home you know it can be. That work is going to create a lot of debris. You may need to take down walls, replace all the flooring, completely gut the kitchen, put on a new roof, and more. All of that is going to leave you with a ton of debris.
Again, Junk Kin Cincinnati is here to provide you with both dumpster rental and junk hauling services, whichever fits your needs the best. If you bought a home at auction or that had been abandoned, you may even need us to come in before you start any renovations just to get the house cleaned out. We have worked with clients who have purchased these abandoned properties or who have inherited hoarder homes, and we can assure you that we can handle them. We’ll have the house emptied out quickly so you can assess the layout and decide what needs to change.
Other Real Estate Experts Become Landlords
Instead of remodeling houses to sell, maybe you purchased a few to run as rental properties. This can make you some great passive income during times when the housing market isn’t as strong as you’d like it to be. While you may need Junk King to help you clean out your properties before you renovate them, you might also need us in between tenants. If you’ve had a tenant who has left behind junk you don’t want, we can come in and haul it all away. We’re also here for you if you need to do some remodeling between tenants.
Why Partner with Junk King Cincinnati?
Why have many real estate professionals in Cincinnati turned to Junk King? There are several reasons. We provide full-service junk hauling, and by that, we mean our clients don’t have to do anything. Our crew will come in and remove items from the rooms they’re currently in, so you don’t have to move them to the curb or even to the front door. This can be perfect for real estate since you may not have a team of people who can handle heavy, bulky furniture and appliances. We take great care when moving items out of the property, too, so you won’t find any scratches on the floors or damage to the doorframes.
We take a wide range of junk. As mentioned earlier, the only thing we can’t deal with is hazardous materials. We haul away old furniture, appliances, mattresses, electronics, yard debris, hot tubs, and much more. If you ever have any question about what we can take, all you have to do is call or text us. If we can’t take it, we may be able to direct you to the correct hazardous waste facility.
Our pricing system is designed to help homeowners, flippers, landlords, and every other client save money. Instead of charging a fee per item or a flat fee for our services, we charge by how much space junk takes up in our truck or dumpster. This means if you rent a dumpster and only use half of it, you will pay less than someone who filled their dumpster to the very top. We will provide a free, no-obligation quote for every job that is fully transparent. You’ll never be asked to pay anything that’s not on the estimate.
