With the recent midterm elections over, a new congress is heading to Washington. This means all eyes will be looking towards D.C. for any signs of relief or assistance for the current foreclosure crisis. Perhaps crisis isn’t the right word: this is a foreclosure mess. Homes are being abandoned left and right. It’s hard to travel anywhere in Columbus Ohio and not come across “Bank Owned” or “Foreclosed Property” signs dotting the landscape. There is a lot of emotional pain attached to each one of those signs. They represent a homeowner who has lost their piece of the American dream. The hope is that those families will be able to quickly recover. The other harsh reality is that those properties need to be sold. In order for that to happen, they first need to be whipped back into shape by an experienced Columbus foreclosure cleanup crew like Junk King.
If you’ve ever thrown a big party then you are familiar with that “morning after groan.” That’s the groan that comes when you see the mess left behind that you now have to deal with. If you were smart, you might have scheduled to get some help with the mess for the morning after. That’s the same idea behind hiring a Columbus foreclosure cleanup crew to sweep through a home and clean out the clutter. Just like after your party, there is no telling what “presents” were left behind. Most often you’ll be able to wipe them away. In a foreclosed home, those “presents” can come in the form of abandoned furniture, broken kitchen appliances or scary looking mattresses. None of that can be swept away. It has to be carried out and hauled off. And that’s just for starters! There can also be piles of clothes, bags of garbage, leftover food and even a busted car rusting away in the driveway.
The real estate agent who takes over a foreclosed Columbus home gets the first look at the property. This is when they should be taking all the “before” pictures. After getting a sense of the size of the cleanup, it’s time to call in the professionals. A foreclosure cleanup company like Junk King can come out to the property to assess the situation and give you a free on site estimate. They’ll know right away the amount of crew members needed to get the job done. They’ll also be able to determine the right truck or dumpster needed to get rid of all the garbage left behind. Then it becomes a matter of scheduling.
Depending on the scope of the job it is conceivable that a foreclosed home can be cleaned in a day which would allow it to go back on the market right away. The “after” pictures come into play then as what was once a disaster zone has now been transformed into a great buy. A real estate agent is required to make a lot of disclosures about any property they sell. One disclosure they can avoid is what a mess the place was when they took over the property.
