Guide for Inheriting & Selling a Hoarded Home
Whether a loved on passed away, or you have taken ownership of a home that has been hoarded in, it is a challenge to move forward. The amount of clutter & trash that has been accumulated can often-times be overwhelming.
The obvious goal when inheriting a hoarder’s home is to clean up the clutter & make it livable once again. After that has been done, you can decide what to do with the property whether to keep it or sell it.
Selling a Hoarder’s Home As-Is
While you can sell a hoarder’s property in as-is condition, you will be receiving pennies on the dollar versus the true value of the home. For example, if a home is worth $225,000 in normal condition, it may sell for $50,000 if it has been affected by hoarding. Therefore, there is a $175,000 loss in value if the home is sold as-is to a cash buyer.
A better solution would be to invest a nominal amount of money into having the hoarded items cleaned up. Compare this to losing tens of thousands of dollars in potential sales price and it is a no brainer!
Hoarded Clutter Cleanup
While some hoarder cleanup projects can be accomplished yourself, it is often best left to an extreme hoarding cleaning company. These companies specialize in the work of cleaning up after hoarding. They can leave the home looking like the hoarding never even happened.
Many of these hoarding clutter cleanup services offer a full-service cleaning service. From organizing belongings, to junk removal, to extreme cleaning & sanitizing, they can do it all. After the hoarder house cleaning has been completed, the house can be listed for sale. It is like there was never even a hoarding problem!
Hoarding Cleaning Services
If you are looking around, there are many hoarder cleanup companies that advertise on the internet for this exact service. Many of these companies use subcontractors, which often-times results in higher prices & lower quality of work.
If you are looking for a hoarding cleanup company, look for a locally owned junk removal service. Any sizable junk removal service has the capability to handle a hoarding clutter cleanup project. In addition, the best part is they can do it at a fraction of the cost.

Three men came and took everything I wanted to get rid of. They were professional and very nice. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you. I'll be calling again.
They cleaned out my grandmas house today in under 6 hours. And we had a lot of stuff! Friendly guys and great work!! Definitely recommend.
Incredibly professional and responsive to all of my questions. Each time I called I spoke directly with sal. No need to leave a voicemail and wait for a call back. Sal, Shawn and Mackenzie have been amazing to work with. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for dumpster rentals.

I got a 100% accurate estimate from the owner and he dispatched a crew to clean out my house the next day (!). The guys were professional and very nice and personable, making a tough situation much easier to handle. Moreover, they worked until the job was done way over my expectations. This company has the best prices in our area and they are complete pros. I would recommend them to anyone...don't hesitate and call A+ first! They will be my first call in the future!
I hired Sal to remove a huge pile of dirt at the property. Sal and his team came on time and finished the job beautifully. They are reliable, honest, and excellent on their workmanship. I would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you Sal. AAA+++
Hired A Plus Enterprises last year to remove some old pool equipment, old yard equipment, and old furniture from my house. There timing, professionalism, and reasonable pricing was overwhelmingly amazing. Great job and look forward to hiring you again!

Excellent communication starting from the first call through our entire demolition project. Answered the phone and responded to emails and texts promptly. Got the job done quickly and efficiently. Highly recommend A+ Enterprises.
Professional and courteous. We have sought the services of this company twice now. Each time they were more than accommodating with very reasonable prices. A+ service.
Sal and his team were fantastic to work with. They were professional and arrived on time. Our scope of work was larger than originally estimated and they immediately dispatched an extra truck to finish up our job in record time. I would highly recommend them for all your removal needs.

Sal really helped us out. We needed some junk removed right away and he got there within a couple of hours, was very professional and polite and did not charge an arm and a leg. He has a customer for life in us now!
Very professional and efficient. Came on short notice. Very nice guys. Extremely good job done swiftly.
A+ is a first-rate, highly professional outfit. They offered courteous, efficient, same-day service at a more-than-fair price. I recommend them with great confidence.

This company is not just professionals at their work but also very kid and hardworking. During the scheduling the staff was very helpful and were able to work with my last minute call with no issues. I received a reminder of my appointment witch was very helpful. The team that arrived to the job took care of business before I knew it it was all done. Very respectful and hard working team. Will definitely recommend anyone and will definitely use this company on my next project.
I would highly recommend them they did a great job and the men were very hardworking and very nice I intend to get them back for more at another time
