Selling a House Full of Personal Property
Are you relocating, downsizing or settling the estate of a parent and have a house full of personal property to sell, but don’t know what to do?
You are not alone. 10,000 baby boomers a day are turning 65, and many are dealing with the same overwhelming situation.
Your first thought might have been to give most of your belongings to your family. The hard truth, or reality is that your kids, or grand kids don’t really want most or any of your stuff.
So what can you do?
You could sell the property yourself.
Selling household items or personal property yourself can be done but comes with a few challenges.
A popular option is to have a garage sale. This can be a great way to sell the pots and pans in your cabinets, or the old golf clubs in the basement, but when you end up loading everything back into the house at the end of the first day after realizing how cheap your neighbors really are, you might have wished you found a better way.
There is always Craigslist or Facebook. After you spend hours taking pictures of individual items and posting them online, your next step will be to deal with the several hundred people who clearly don’t read your postings and ask how much the item is, and if it’s still available.
The next challenge is scheduling buyers to come to your home to look at the items, and hope they show up or aren’t a serial killer.
If you manage to stay alive during this process, you will then be faced with the endless bottom feeder negotiators hoping to buy your quality well cared for leather sofa for fifty dollars.
Is there a better way? Yes, you can hire someone to do it for you.
