No good property preservation contractor can truly say that they’ve “seen it all.” Every property presents its own challenges, whether it’s removing a heavy safe from a basement, disposing of hundreds of old tires, or addressing biohazards. The possibilities are endless, and the more experience your contractor has, the more likely they will be able to tackle anything you throw at them.
Foreclosed houses can be great purchases as either investment homes to flip or use as ongoing rental properties, or as an inexpensive way to buy a home for your own. The problem with foreclosures is they often haven’t been well cared for and require work to get them prepared to provide acceptable living conditions. They nearly always need cleaning up, are behind on routine maintenance schedules, and need some larger repairs.
When it comes to securing, cleaning, and preserving your inventory of foreclosed homes, you have a lot of options. But not all property preservation companies operate the same way. What should you ask companies before making a decision?
