Lawn Love for Banks

When the economy slows down, more and more homes may become foreclosed. As homes sit uninhabited, someone still has to maintain the yards or they will fall into disrepair, and the bank who now owns the property could end up losing money. Banks sometimes foreclose on many buildings at once, and it's not always possible to move them quickly. The longer they take to sell, the worse the yards can get, which is why it's important for banks to maintain an automated, recurring lawn care service!

The process of finding a great lawn care service for foreclosed properties can be painful, and the quality is inconsistent. That’s where Lawn Love can help. Our satellite mapping and quoting algorithms can generate an instant quote for all your properties, sight-unseen. We'll then pair you with a screened, experienced lawn pro to come do the work, without you ever having to be there. Payment and scheduling are fully automated, and you can orchestrate everything from your smartphone or a web browser.

Tips for Maintaining Distressed or Foreclosed Properties

Grounds maintenance for distressed or foreclosed properties doesn’t have to be complicated, as long as it is maintained on a regular cadence. Landscaping and grounds maintenance should generally be done at least bi-weekly in order to keep the distressed or foreclosed properties in order.

Banks don't want to hang onto foreclosures, because those properties waste money as long as they are unsold. When a bank owns a property, they are responsible for paying property taxes and insurance, and maintaining a cash reserve for any emergencies. This ties up funds the bank could be investing more profitably.

Usually the properties that are foreclosed upon are already in pretty bad shape, and if lawn care goes ignored,property values can continue to decline. When it comes time to finally sell the foreclosed property, if the lawn has not been maintained, it may deter buyers from the property.

When booking a maintenance service, you want to make sure the provider is reliable and consistent. Shopping around to compare prices, and reading reviews in multiple locations and for each job can be tiring and still does not guarantee results. Also, relying on a single provider can be risky if you need a new or immediate service.

That’s why we recommend using Lawn Love. We are available in over 120 cities and we send reputable lawn professionals to you who are up for any lawn care task at hand. When selecting a lawn service for distressed or foreclosed properties we recommend:

  1. Start with a yard cleanup to and/or mowing service to start fresh with the appearance and general health of the lawn.
  2. Schedule recurring lawn maintenance services so that while the property is under foreclosure it will not deteriorate further in value.
  3. Use a service like Lawn Love that makes your job easy for booking and scheduling the lawn care you need for multiple properties.

Lawn Care Services for Distressed or Foreclosed Properties

Lawn mowing and maintenance for distressed or foreclosed properties usually requires more than just a regular mowing service. Most of these homes are in disarray, and the yards probably have not been properly maintained in quite a long time.

Routine maintenance usually begins with a complete yard clean up for distressed or foreclosed properties. This is to remove any debris in the yard, trim bushes and hedges, remove weeds and apply weed control, and remove leaves or any other dead plants around the yard.

Gutter cleaning for distressed or foreclosed properties may also be necessary. This should also be included in any regular maintenance to prevent costly damage to the building such as flooding or structural damage.

Snow removal for distressed or foreclosed properties may be necessary depending on the climate of the market. Safety and accessibility of the outdoor area around the home is important all year round.

Affordable Lawn Care for Foreclosures

When quoting you for a service, we measure your property size, lawn areas, driveway length, and more. We also consider the growing region, frequency of service, and mix of services in order to generate a price.

We offer service plans starting as low as $29, for weekly mowing and trimming services. In order to help you keep costs low, we’ve created recurring lawn care service plans and bundles that are cheaper than a one time service. Most properties require at least a weekly or bi-weekly service, but the frequency of a plan can be adjusted at any time as needed. We never require you to sign a contract or charge you a subscription fee.

Our pricing is transparent, meaning you’ll know what you’ll pay for your service before the job is even scheduled so you’ll never experience any hidden fees. You can check out more information on pricing or get an instant quote.
