Cremorne – House clear-out

This home has been owned by the same family since built and had almost 100 years of clutter. We would describe this home as a time capsule. Everything that went in the house stayed for good, and nothing ever left.

The owner sadly passed away and had no family, so the General Manager of his company had the ominous task of sorting out the estate. Over 20 tonnes of history, tools and rubbish. Up in the ceiling was a makeshift factory bulging with literally tonnes of metal and boxes ! This was a major job. The client called us saying that they had spent many weekends attempting to cleanup, but seemed to be making no headway.

How we helped

Armed with the team, we sorted everything from metals and paper, to donations and rubbish. It wasn’t till day five that we found a loaded pistol and 1000s of rounds of ammunition in the main bedroom. By week two, everything was removed including the original carpet. The dusting, vacuuming and cleaning took two days!

The Result

The conversion of what was an unsaleable property, to a clean blank canvas that sold for $377,000 more than they hoped for. ClearHome services pay for themselves and on this occasion a huge profit.

“I cannot speak highly enough of the service provided by Matthew Walther and ClearHome. As co-executor of a deceased estate I was faced with the daunting challenge of preparing a property for sale that had been subjected to decades of accumulated clutter and extraordinary neglect.

The condition of the premises defied comprehension but the project didn’t faze Matthew. Throughout the entire exercise he managed every process with exceptional courtesy, professionalism, great communication and compassion.

Some 20 tons of rubbish removal later coupled with heavy duty cleaning and the property was ready for the market.

I cannot thank or congratulate ClearHome enough for the results that were achieved.”
