Pittsburgh Home Cleanouts

pittsburgh clean outsHomes are selling fast here in Pittsburgh. That is according to the facts compiled by West Penn Multi-List. They found that in November, it took seller two weeks less time to close a deal on their homes then in the previous month. The number of homes going on the market also went up by 2% in November. Over all, new listings are up by 3% for the year. This is very good news for the local economy because if the real estate market is coming back, then everything is coming back.

One of the reasons that folks are able to sell their homes so fast could be tied to “curb appeal.” This is how a home looks from the outside and the inside. Sure, an inspector might reveal some minor issues that need fixing. However, when you get right down to it, more homebuyers base their decisions on what the home looks like. This is why sellers are always encouraged to de-clutter their properties before they go onto the market. Hiring a company like Junk King Pittsburgh can make that de-cluttering project stress-free.

Sometimes a seller will already move out of their home. When that happens, Junk King can swoop in and gather up anything left behind. That is a total home cleanout. If the buyer is still occupying the home, then Junk King can still be a big advantage as they can help clear out all those things like stored furniture, boxes of junk and other items that take up space. You definitely want to show a prospective buyer all the available space in your home!

That same Junk King crew can also be sent out to the back and front yard to pick up any debris that is detracting from your curb appeal. If you’ve got old planters, fallen tree branches, shrubs or rusty patio furniture, then give it all to Junk King.

Before anything gets loaded on the Junk King truck, you’ll be presented with an estimate fee. That will be based on the amount of space your junk will take up on the back of the truck. It’s a single fee with no hidden charges. If it ends up that your junk takes up more space, you’re not going to be charged any extra. If it takes up less space, you’ll be given a refund. This puts Junk King as one of the fairest and most affordable private hauls in the Pittsburgh area. Call them today to arrange your cleanout!

 

Haul Away Junk From Your Pittsburgh Home

Not only does this mean having the shovels and salt at the ready, but you also want to be ready to stay indoors. This means stocking up on food, games and movies. Of course, if you find yourself stuck inside while the snow is falling outside, you might be reminded of all the stuff you want to get rid of. Staring at old furniture or outdated computers and the rest of the clutter should motivate you to get rid of it once the roads are clear.
