A nicely decorated and furnished home will sell faster than a vacant one - and often for a better price. That's why so many people look to a hometender to temporarily occupy a vacant home. I mean, if you're selling a home, which of these rooms would you rather market to buyers?
The advantage to the hometender is the discount in housing cost. However, they must keep the house immaculately clean and have it available for showings with very little notice. Unlike renters, they must cooperate with agents, open houses and showing requests. And they must be willing to move out quickly when the property sells.
Companies like Castle Keepers make a home more marketable - which always gets my vote. If you were voting with your pocketbook, which of these rooms would win? The hot, vacant room scattered with dead bugs or the clean, lighted and furnished room?
