Union Property Group Launches New Service Just for NJ Hoarder Houses

[USPRwire, Tue Jul 13 2010] Union Property Group, a Union County New Jersey Real Estate Holding Company, has officially launched a service targeted towards owners of hoarder houses at www.webuyhoarderhouses.com.
Chief Marketing Officer, Chris Consorte, said “We’ve had a lot of success in the past acquiring homes from hoarders directly or the beneficiaries of their estates. They often just want to get rid of the property and don’t want to have to deal with the huge task of emptying, cleaning, rehabbing and then selling the property. We find this is the ideal situation for a quick cash sale and the seller finds instant relief.”
Whether there’s growth in hoarder-owned houses is unclear, but the recent success of the cable-TV series has brought to light the severity of the problem for the hoarder and the impact on their families. Consorte went on to say, “It’s a difficult situation. When you’re dealing with a house, the problem just gets worse daily and the house becomes less valuable by the minute. We recently acquired a hoarder house that required ten, thirty-yard, dumpsters for the removal of the house contents.”
While it may seem like a no-brainer to target the hoarder home market, finding a deal is not always easy. Location is important, but the overall condition of the property comes heavily into play and assessing the situation is not always easy. Consorte continued, “Usually, the homes are packed floor-to-ceiling with stuff. In estate-sale cases of hoarder homes, the beneficiary just wants a fast sale and it’s difficult to determine the extent of the damage hidden by all the stuff. We almost always have unexpected repairs that arise only after we’ve emptied the hoarder’s house. It’s part of the deal, unfortunately, but we feel we’re doing a favor to the community as well because when the house is complete it looks as good as new.”
