YES….WE BUY UGLY HOMES!
There are billboard signs across Southern California freeways saying “We Buy Ugly Homes”. Have you seen them? Have you ever stopped to think what an Ugly home means? If you are used to living in clean surroundings, we doubt you could imagine or visualize what an Ugly home really looks like or can be. Unfortunately people do live in unacceptable conditions in Southern California, some of which are not only Ugly but also unsafe and a hazard all round. We write this article to improve communities and not judge anyone, so on that note, the word Ugly in our book can mean many things. Let’s explore what we call a GREAT ugly home for us to buy……
- Visibly Distressed Exterior
Let’s face it, we don’t know what goes on behind closed doors, but what happens on the exterior can pretty much tell the inside story. Broken roof tiles and windows and junk and furniture outside, all signify that a home isn’t cared for, and we can almost guarantee there will be far worse issues inside.
- Landscaping is a Mess
Grass that is brown and overgrown and flowers that look more like weeds are both indicators of an unloved garden. This lack of upkeep makes this home an eye sore on your street.
- Hoarded Garden and Driveway
Forget about the grass, plants and trees; if you see furniture, old bicycles, books, car parts and a myriad of other things simply piled up and/or scattered on the driveway and in the garden, this is a clear sign that the house is occupied by a hoarder.
- Haven for Stray Animals
Is the ugly home a haven for stray animals? Are you seeing lots of cats and dogs walking in and out, perhaps carrying kittens and puppies in their mouthes? This is a perfect ugly home for us to buy.
- Mold Infestation
Generally speaking, if mold is bad on the outside, it will also be bad on the inside. Mold infested homes are awful, but we love to buy them and clean them up. We handle mold and any other damage that comes with an ugly home.
- Hoarder’s Disease
This disease affects 2%-5% of the US population so it’s quite possible that someone on your street is a hoarder. Their homes can be filled from floor to ceiling with papers, bottles, McDonald’s burger cartons, shopping bags, feces from stray animals and much much more.
We can come in and buy the house as it is. The process is simple. It does not matter how ugly the home is, we come in, do an assessment and make a cash offer. If there is an agreement, we generally hand over the cash and close escrow in under 10 days. If you are living in an ugly home and want to get out, perhaps to move to a smaller place or get medical help, we can give you a new lease on life. You just walk out without doing or paying for any cleaning or repairs.
We have a great reputation for making ugly homes beautiful again and, more importantly, safe, hence removing the eye sore on your street. Our solutions help everyone involved; the owner is free to start afresh with cash, we get to do what we do best, and the neighbors are elated because there isn’t an ugly house on their street anymore.
www.hoarderhomes.com has a real passion to help communities who struggle with hoarders living in or around them. We see ourselves as advocates to get hoarders the help they need. It is really important that you don’t judge a hoarder, but rather provide them with the support to get the help they so desperately need.
