The Stay-Things Shrub from SimLogical is a wonderful mod, which allows your lot to remain furnished when the family moves out. Unfortunately, it has an inadvertent side effect: all objects which would have been deleted from the lot (without the shrub) will be valued at zero when calculating the lot value. This means that your lot will not be properly valued, often being undervalued by tens (or even hundreds) of thousands of simoleons. This undervaluation cannot be fixed by buying, building, or packaging the lot.

The StayThingsShrub Fixer will undo this side effect, ensuring that your unoccupied lot value includes the current value of all objects on the lot, so that the next family to move into the lot will pay its real value.

To fix the valuation after moving your family out, just edit the lot and choose the object (a red box with a picture of a lot for sale) from Misc / Misc in the Buy menu and the lot value will be reset. Once the object has been placed and the lot value restored, you can delete the object.

Note that this mod is only useful on an unoccupied lot. If you use this mod on an occupied lot, it sets objects back to the default state, where they will be deleted when your family moves out. This is exactly the same as choosing "Let objects vanish at moveout" from the Stay-Things Shrub menu. The main difference is that the StayThingsShrub Fixer will work on an unoccupied lot.
