Owning one property is a lot of work. Now imagine 10 properties. As a real estate owner, the more properties you have, the better. Ideally, these homes are rented out to people one after the other. But what happens when a tenant leaves all their junk at your property? You can’t find a new tenant until all of that junk is gone. This creates a gap between renting, which decreases your income.
You could clean out the property yourself, although that can be very time-consuming, especially if it’s more than one property that needs junk removals. Real estate owners have many other responsibilities, and cleaning out properties shouldn’t be one of them. That’s what Mad Trash is here for. We offer timely real estate junk removals to ensure that your properties are ready for the next tenants in no time.
How Are Real Estate Junk Removals Beneficial?
When you join the real estate business, you might’ve not thought about junk removal services. In an ideal world, your tenants take all of their stuff with them. You might need some maid service to sweep and clean the kitchens and stuff, but they can’t get rid of an abandoned couch or bed.
Junk removal services like Mad Trash have all the equipment and skills to get rid of any type of junk, such as furniture, appliances, yard debris, etc. The best part about our services is that we provide fast junk removals, so you can get your new tenants settled in.
Why Is Timing Important?
When it comes to renting the property out, timing is everything. The longer your property stays on the market, the less income you will make on it because you won’t be making rent money. If your property is messy–full of unwanted junk–people are not going to want to rent it out. The first impression matters a lot; no one wants to live in a place full of clutter.
If you don’t want to put a messy property on the market, then you will have to haul out the junk first. Doing this yourself can be dangerous and time-consuming. The junk that tenants can leave isn’t always light. You can be dealing with old couches, refrigerators, tables, beds, and the list goes on. If you don’t have experience maneuvering around a home with heavy items, we don’t recommend it, especially if there are stairs.
Mads Trash is a two-women team that has many years of experience hauling junk out of all kinds of scenarios. There’s not a job that we can’t handle. We will get all the junk out of the property in a timely fashion, so you can get the property on the market as soon as possible.
Why Would a Tenant Leave Junk Behind?
Tenants leave junk behind for many reasons. Let’s take a look at some of the most common reasons.
If they are evacuated because they never pay their rent on time, they have short notice to leave the property. This might not give them enough time to plan out a proper moving plan and they are forced to leave things behind. They may not have the space to take the stuff with them.
Lack of Space
Even if your tenants did not get evacuated, they may not have enough space to take their old couch with them. Maybe they only have one moving truck and it’s full to the max. So what do they do? They leave that half-broken washing machine behind.
Sometimes, it might be cheaper to leave their old junk at your property and pay the fines, than to pay for a moving company to haul their junk across the country. If the stuff they leave behind is useless and old, it gives them a bigger reason to leave it behind than haul it to their new home.
