Are you drowning beneath the mess of all the stuff that is left after all the valuables have been distributed to family and friends?
My in-laws passed away leaving a 5000 square foot house full of “stuff”, so I understand how overwhelmed people feel, clearing out an entire house of someone’s possessions, particularly if you have emotional ties to them, and how challenging and stressful it can be especially if the house has been occupied for decades.
If a thorough cleanout of the house is required, I have worked with and can recommend vendors such as estate sale, junk removal, and clean-out companies that can help dispose of unwanted items.
Once the house is cleaned out, depending on the condition of the property, you might want to sell “as-is”, which means that you are selling the property in its current state, with an understanding that no repairs will be made and that the home will be sold with all its current issues and problems.
If you don’t want to sell “as-is”, I might recommend enhancements or improvements to increase the value of the house before it is put on the market such as applying a fresh coat of paint (neutral colors), refinishing hardwood floors, or eliminating all signs of pet ownership, like stains and other damage.
Then, if need be, I will stage the house to position the property to achieve the maximum market potential. Next, I’ll develop a customized plan designed to expertly market the house. Finally, I will aggressively negotiate the highest and best offer for your acceptance.
Selling a home after the death of a loved one can be a trying experience but my goal is to make it easier for you and your family, freeing you to focus on other duties necessary in managing the estate’s assets.
Let me help you start the process. I’m just a call or click away.
