What do we know about suggesting home staging and de-cluttering?  The house still sold despite this.

Imagine how much the house will sell for once renovated.  Would it get $1,000 per square foot?

We still recommend clearing off the clutter before selling.

Looks like it might have a basement apartment.  Must be a real treat when it rains.

Broken Water Heater?

February 22nd, 2016 · No Comments

Water appears to be flowing out of the garage and down the driveway.  What’s going on?

broken leaking busted water heater water flowing out of garage Apache Junction Arizona home house for sale

I stopped by one of my vacant listings a few years ago and saw this same thing.  The water heater had cracked and water kept filling up and flowing out of the tank.  And…kept heating the water, which created a lot of steam and moisture in the garage.  Luckily I discovered it shortly after it happened.  The fuse was turned off, the garage door was opened, the water swept out, and the home warranty company was called right away.  Could have been a disaster with mold & mildew arriving in a day or two if undiscovered.  From then on, I suggest my clients turn off their water heaters in vacant homes.
