Why Do We Care?
Kristi Cirtwill who founded HoarderHomes.com, has a love for people, home renovations and property development. When she started her business about 10 years ago, her goal was to help those with hoarding disease, get out of their less than ideal living conditions. “No one should live like this” said Kristi in a recent interview. Most hoarders have rodent infested homes or have collected hundreds of stray animals and live in very poor conditions. Why would another human being allow this to continue?
Of course there is discrimination towards this mental health problem, but what non-hoarders fail to realize is that 2% to 5% of the U.S. population suffer from this. Hoarding is a very real disease. Many make fun of it or simply stay away from these people, but this is not the solution; you are not adding value to the well-being of your neighborhood. Think of it this way; a house infested with rodents will only breed more and your house could be their next target! Why would you want to avoid helping someone, when at the end of the day, you could be helping yourself?
Honesty is Our Best Policy
Being in any type of mental health state requires delicate handling because there are so many emotions that go hand in hand with this situation; not only for the hoarders themselves, but it can also cause emotional upheaval for all concerned; their family members, friends, heirs, executors and others. Because of this, our aim is to always be as honest as possible about our offer for the house. At the end of the day, look at it as an investment to close a horrible chapter and start afresh.
We typically come on site, inspect the house, make a cash offer and close within 10 days. The reason for this is that we want the estate to be finalized in a timely manner, so all concerned can move on with their lives. We take the home AS-IS and will base our offer on market value, condition of the house and best of all, offer a cash deal.
We are very discreet and respect confidentiality and items that are important to those involved. We don’t ever broadcast the living situation to others; we know how hard it can be for everyone. Please rest assured that we are honest and true to our word.
Peace of Mind
Some hoarders have lived in their homes for years on end, not knowing how to get out of it. They see it as normal. However, upon their death, families are so overwhelmed with dealing with the estate that it can be a very stressful time. If you suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) where you are constantly cleaning and using bleach around your house, dealing with a hoarder’s home will probably send you into depression! You may say you will clean it up because that is what you do, but hoarded homes require much more than just de-cluttering. Often there are pest issues in the structure of the home, broken pipes, leaking roofs, backed up sewage, weed-infested gardens, snakes, and much more. It can be very daunting even for the best of us which is why you’d probably have a professional come and complete a sewage leak repair, rather than taking on the job and doing it yourself. Dealing with a hoarder’s home is already enough to handle without having to worry about the sewage system too. Hoarders will often neglect the electrical improvements that can be made by professional electricians, such as Safe and Sound Electric, losing further value in their home and putting themselves and others in danger. Some hoarders are professors, attorneys, and accountants. They know right from wrong, but because this is a mental health issue, their home lives can be a mess (literally). This is why calling in experts to deal with all kinds of issues that arise from dealing with a hoarder’s home is important. Often because of the neglect, a hoarder home faces structural damage with the home water heaters usually suffering. Calling in a furnace service vancouver specialist is the right call to tackle some of the core heating issues for resale.
