Higher Selling Price
Don't reduce the price, increase the appeal! Statistics prove that a well maintained home with attractive furniture and accessories tastefully arranged, mean a quicker more profitable sale. A comfortable (warm in winter, cool in summer) decorated home enables potential buyers to visualize how their own furnishings might look in the home and encourages them spend more time at the showing.
Reduced Holding Costs
The Hometender pays all utility bills associated with maintaining the home including electricity, gas, water, sewer and trash removal. We maintain the lawn, landscaping and pool. In condominiums we pay all or a portion of the monthly homeowners maintenance fees.
NO DISTRESS CONNOTATIONS
A vacant home gives a distress connotation to a potential buyer. The buyer sees the homeowner as anxious to sell and willing to accept offers far less than listing price.
Most homeowners are not aware that many homeowners insurance policies have a vacancy clause that dramatically increases the rate or automatically cancels the protection after a home is vacant for thirty days or more. Rate increases can be as much as 50% depending on your carrier. A Hometender in place assures the home remains insurable at a reasonable rate.
A Hometender in your home can safeguard against weather related damages and protect it from vandalism. Any problems around the home can be detected early and repaired quickly before more costly damage can occur. A small leak left unattended can buckle hardwood floors, ruin carpeting, sheetrock and wall paper. Even the finest areas are not immune to vandals that disfigure or destroy property or the theft of fixtures and appliances.
NO TENANT PROBLEMS
Our Hometenders are subcontractors not renters. No landlord/tenant relationships are created. Hometenders are trained and contractually obligated to keep the house in model home condition, neat, clean, and ready to show.
NO COST TO YOU
Unlike other staging services that charge a flat fee or a percentage of the sales price to the homeowner our services our free. The Hometender pays us a small monthly fee to participate in our program.
