Hoarders/ Collectors Project Management

HOARDER:  Hoarding is a compulsive disorder that affects less than 1% of the population.  The person obsesses over his/her stuff and will most likely not find a solution unless professional help is sought.  The collected stuff causes distress and discomfort and limits the person’s ability to make good use of his/her house or rooms.

Hoarders vs Clutterers

CLUTTERER: Cluttering affects millions of people.  Someone that lives amongst clutter accumulates without much thought and would probably be able to make the changes themselves if motivated enough to do so.  Often this will never get to such an extreme point as to debilitate the persons freedom and comfort. They will be able to throw things  away if given enough reason.collected stuff causes distress and discomfort and limits the person’s ability to make good use of his/her house or rooms

HOW WE WORK:  I approached  Staged N Sold  to restore what can best be described as a hoarder’s property to saleable condition. What made the situation particularly challenging was a client that was very nervous about others viewing the state of their home and insisting on being present as each item was sorted through. The Staged N Sold team were absolutely wonderful in how they compassionately dealt with the client, organized the various segments of the clean up/renovation and staging. The home sold in four days and I had a  client that was very satisfied with the entire process.  The Staged N Sold team are professional, will always go the extra mile and are terrific to work with .
