Caretaking of Property Listed for Sale

In today's real estate market, property may be left vacant for months, sometimes years, before the right buyer comes along - and some families don't know where to turn for help in the meantime. Careful maintenance is a must to reduce the risk of loss and retain the property's value.

Exterior maintenance might include lawncare, shrub maintenance and tree trimming. For many city and suburban properties, strict ordinances govern lawncare and snow removal. Installation and maintenance of timed exterior lighting fixtures can help deter thieves and destruction when property sits vacant.

Interior projects might include updating with paint, new flooring and carpets or light fixtures. Checking and replacing batteries in smoke detectors and arranging for furnace or water heater service on a regular basis is also a good idea.

At Around the Home Maintenance Services, we offer maintenance and repair contracts that include periodic checks on estate property or property listed for sale. We work with personal representatives, trustees and guardians to help maintain the estate's valuable assets. We maintain and update property listed for sale and help clean out and stage the property, including inventory, packing, removing and arranging for secure storage of personal or estate property, dumpster rental and trash removal.

For more information, contact Kurt by email or call (517) 242-9717.
