Differentiating Loved Items from Resalable Items

HMelvisWhen it comes time to plan an estate sale, it is your responsibility to decide what stays and what goes.

While some people are willing to sell pretty much everything in their home, others take a more cautious approach. Instead, they take the time to differentiate between loved items and those that are considered resalable.

Of course, this leads to an important question: how will you differentiate between the two?

The process you use may not be the same as the next person, but there are a few important points to focus on:

1. Do you have a connection to the item? Maybe a family member gave you the item, meaning that it holds a special place in your heart. Or maybe you feel that it has the ability to increase in value, prompting you to hold onto it for a while longer.

2. Would you sell the item for enough money? This one question can help you decide if you should keep something or put it up for sale. If an item is truly loved, there is a very good chance you would not part with it regardless of what you are offered from a buyer. On the other hand, if you are willing to sell at the right price, the item is definitely considered resalable.

3. Don’t be too picky. You have the right to do whatever you want with your belongings, but if you are overly picky you may soon find that you have nothing to sell. Holding onto some items is to be expected, but you must be willing to part ways with others. Remember, there is a fine line between keeping something because you love it and hoarding.

With this advice, you should have an easier time differentiating loved items from resalable items. As a result, planning your estate sale should be more enjoyable.
