Sounds like you made an excellent investment Nathan Gesner . I have not purchased a horders house and it's probably a good thing being I'm boarder line myself and may end up keeping a lot of that crap. (after all I'd sell it some day on eBay)

I have had tenants leave their junk and it felt like a hoarder house. It took two dumpsters to haul off the junk.

No..but I worked with sellers who took 6 months to empty out their house..it was a nightmare! Once they did it was easy to convince them to paint, install new flooring, have windows washed, home cleaned and staged!

I wouldn't be concerned about buying a hoarder's house if stuff were the only problem.  It's when mold sets in that things get scary.  Hard to find and evaluate repairing the source of that.

Took you too long to complete it. Should have been done sooner. I have not bought one & really only run into a few during my career.
