Maryland Hoarder House Sale: Real Estate Renovation & Marketing Guide Launched

Marc Cormier of Berkshire Hathaway Pen Fed Realty, a realtor specializing in probate, has published a series of guides on the sale of inherited homes in Maryland and Virginia, with a particular focus on overly cluttered and poorly maintained houses.

During his 20-year career in real estate, Marc Cormier has successfully handled the sale of numerous hoarder houses, and can advise sellers on the necessary steps needed to maximize the sale price of the property. His latest resources cover all aspects of a home sale, including the legal steps, renovation, marketing, and listing.

With the latest announcement, the realtor emphasizes the importance of seeking professional help when dealing with an inherited hoarder property. He understands that letting go of the personal belongings of a deceased loved one can be difficult, and combined with the challenges of probate proceedings, settling debts, and communicating with other heirs and family members, this process can be overwhelming.

“Hoarding is a complex issue, and most people are unprepared to handle the emotional and physical demands of cleaning a hoarder house,” says Cormier. “Hoarder houses have a negative impact on everyone involved, and it's important to find a realtor who specializes in this area.”

Cormier can help clients consider the pros and cons of selling the property as-is, as opposed to renovating it, and determine the most suitable strategy for their goals. He explains that selling the property as-is will significantly affect its market value and decrease the number of interested buyers. Excessive amounts of clutter not only make it visually unappealing, but can also present health hazards and hide structural problems.

Should the clients decide to proceed with home renovation, they can enlist Cormier’s help. He will advise them on the most important repairs and renovations necessary for increasing the sale price, and will manage the decluttering, cleaning, and redecorating process. In some cases, he may be able to hire contractors who will agree to be paid from sale proceeds, reducing the client’s upfront expenses.

One of the latest additions to Cormier’s resources is a video case study describing how he helped a family increase the sale price of an inherited house by over $130,000 by removing clutter and old furniture, redecorating, and staging it to appeal to a wider pool of buyers. Marc Cormier’s team managed the project from start to end, from cleaning to marketing the home.
