Agents who are taking part in the contest will accumulate a certain number of points based on the sales, recruiting, continued education, positive feedback they receive from client surveys and team building activities. Any agents joining American Dream Realty during the promotion will also be entered into the final drawing.”
Even though the Santa Cruz real estate market isn’t “out of the woods” quite yet there are some very positive signs of growth and of prices heading in the right direction. All of this points out the need for real estate agents to be on the top of their game and seize any opportunity that comes their way. Often this would mean thinking outside of the box when it comes to finding new listings. Nowhere is there a better source of viable home listings then within the foreclosure market. The hitch with acquiring a foreclosure listing is getting that property ready for sale and that could be as simple as contracting Junk King.
Junk King is the junk removal specialists who have been helping homeowners in the Santa Cruz area clear out the clutter in their lives. A foreclosed property is often an abandoned property. There could be all manner of furniture, rugs and appliances left behind by the previous occupant. Then there are also the bags of garbage strewn about the property. A prospective homeowner doesn’t need to see any of this and that’s where the Junk King Monterey crew can be a big help. You can set up a foreclosure cleanout with Junk King that will have all of that abandoned stuff gathered up and carted off within a few hours.
On many levels it’s easier for Junk King Monterey to clean out a foreclosed home than one that is currently occupied. That’s because all you have to do is tell the JK crew to “clear it all” and they’ll take it from there! Junk King will also make a clean sweep of the front and back yards. If there are neglected shrubs, piles of dirt, rusty swing sets or dilapidated sheds they can all be removed. Once the property is clear from junk it can be staged however appropriate to make the sale. Don’t let a little garbage stand in the way of a commission. Partner up with Junk King Monterey to get those properties ready to move.
While there have been some signs that the foreclosure crisis is easing in certain parts of the country, California is still feeling the pain especially when it comes to Federal Housing Administration insured home loans. Even the homeowners that were offered relief with some refinancing options have slipped back into default. This has resulted in an increase of foreclosures in the state in the last several months. While this is obviously bad news for those homeowners, this could be turned into a “plus” especially in areas such as Monterey where housing is at a premium. If you are thinking about investing in the real estate market don’t discount the foreclosed home to provide you with a bunch of viable listings.
There are many online services which claim to offer complete listings of all the foreclosed homes in the Monterey area. Even though you have to pay a monthly fee for these listings you might think this is a good resource. While that might be true in certain instances, there is no guarantee that these listings will be up to date. One of the best resources for foreclosed home listings would be the banks themselves who now have to take charge of these types of properties. It’s the banks that will be scheduling any auctions for these properties and that is where you might be able to pick up a really decent home for an incredible price.
However, with an auction, you might not always have the opportunity to closely inspect the house. Yes, the bank will have to provide a truthful representation of that home’s value with regard to its structure but you might not have any idea what you’ll find when you get the keys and open the door. Inside could be a ton of garbage left behind by the previous occupant. If that person was foreclosed on then they might not care what state the house is in. It could also be the case that they were leaving to a smaller home or apartment and forced to abandon a lot of furniture or other appliances. As the new owner, you’ve now inherited all of this garbage. The good news is you can clear it all out in a matter of hours with the right crew of professional junk haulers – Junk King Monterey.
These professional junk haulers won’t be put off by the garbage left behind; they’ve seen it all! While you’re arranging for painters, new carpets or anything else for the home, the junk haulers will be tossing all the garbage onto the back of their truck for removal. This is important because the faster you can clear out the junk, the quicker you’ll be able to make that home habitable. Whether you’ll be moving in or you’ll be renting out the space, you’ll definitely want Junk King Monterey to remove all traces of the previous occupant.
