The Circumstances

It is beyond difficult selling a hoarder house in Ontario. Hidden behind so many contents, you often discover other challenges because of the lack of cleaning and maintenance.

Needing to move out of the province, this home selling wished to take very little with him. He still had to purchase his new home, so required extra time before closing the sale. Flexibility is not always possible when trying to sell a house the traditional way with a real estate agent.

MJS Properties can buy your house as-is on your timeline. You can choose to sell your house fast or take all the time you need.

We are problem solvers.

You could hardly move inside the house or garage, filled with more stuff than you can imagine. The owner seemed paralyzed to move forward and didn’t know where to begin.

Normally, before selling your home on the market, you must declutter and clean. This allows prospective buyers to see themselves living in the home. The idea of this task felt impossible to the homeowner.

The home was once a simple shed. They put on additions to create a house. It needed a lot of repairs. It also suffered from water in the basement which can often be a tough sell.

The daunting to-do list would take time to complete, which the homeowner simply did not have while trying to arrange his move.

The Plan

MJS Properties made the homeowner a fair cash offer that provided the flexible close he needed. The offer also included taking care of the disposal of any contents he couldn’t or didn’t want to take with him.

We required absolutely nothing else from the homeowner and erased his to-do list for selling the house full of stuff. That would make his move out of the province a lot easier and free up a ton of time.

After the homeowner packed up any desired contents, he moved on to begin his new life. They left everything else unchanged. Then Matt got to work clearing out the remaining contents and garbage.

We fixed the leaks in the basement, refinished the floors, installed new windows, repaired drywall and freshened the paint. It felt like a home again. Outside, we tidied up the landscaping in the massive backyard, neglected for years. It was now “move-in ready” in a condition that could compete with other homes in the area.

The Results

With a flexible closing date and no longer feeling pressured to rush, the previous homeowner had the extra time he needed to facilitate his move. We eliminated the added expense and hassle of getting rid of everything he didn’t want to take with him.

The best solution for selling a hoarder house in Ontario is often with a real estate investor. I can’t imagine moving all that stuff across the country. And the challenge of cleaning and repairing to sell the home was off his plate.

He described his experience as full of relief and gratitude.

The home turned out to be quite beautiful after its transformation. A newly engaged couple purchased the house. They made plans for an addition overlooking the picturesque Thames River. Thanks to Matt’s initial upgrades, they felt safe and comfortable to dream. Improvements made by MJS Properties thrilled the neighbours too, excited for the increased property values of their own homes.
