Do you know someone who passed away who did not get rid of anything? Maybe they were considered a hoarder. And a hoarder, meaning that they never threw out anything, there’s stockpiles of items throughout their entire property. And now you don’t know what to do with it.
So, what do you do when a hoarder dies? Your main options are you can clean out the house yourself. You can spend thousands of dollars buying dumpsters, hiring companies to clean it out, or you can spend hours and hours of your time removing item piece by piece until the property is fully cleaned out. But that’s not where the work stops.
What’s After Clean Out?
Typically in hoarder houses, you’re only left with a couple options. Because the house has probably become so dilapidated on the interior because of all the items, and junk, and food and residue that was left all over the place, you will more than likely need to do a full remodel. And a full remodel nowadays costs between $25,000 to $45,000 depending upon the size of the house, and can drastically go up depending on finishes.
So, what do you do when a hoarder dies and you’re trying to get rid of the property? You don’t want to remodel it yourself, and you’re looking for other options. The first option would be to call a company like ours who buys houses in the area and will buy the property from you. You don’t need to clean out a single piece of garbage or any invaluable items, we’ll take care of it ourselves. We’ll hire our company and crews who can dispose of all the items, whether that’s throwing them in a dumpster or donating them to a local facility.
Another Option would be to clean it out yourself, remodel it, and then list it on the market with a realtor. 75% of the time, realtors will not take a listing that is a mess, because it doesn’t look good for their resume. And when you’re comparing it to other houses that people are currently living in, they don’t want to be known as the person to list the “ugly properties.” So, that needs to be taken into consideration when you’re looking at selling a house that a hoarder lives in or when a hoarder passes away, what you can do with the property. Realtors only like to sell pretty houses that don’t take much effort to sell to a new home owner. Most will bring a check list with them on the “items to repair” prior to listing. Which ultimately means… more money out of your pocket.
