Organize Your Belongings. Make a list of items for that you want to sell. You might think it’ll be short (“I’m moving into a condo and need to sell my house,”) but as you start planning, you’ll realize other items can be liquidated as well (“I won’t need the lawnmower or snow blower either,”). Items of little or no value can often be recycled or donated as you get organized. You may even consider seeking out an appraisal for some of the higher value items, like land or equipment.
Consult An Expert. We all have influencers in our lives that we turn to for key decisions, whether they be close family and friends, a financial planner or the family attorney.
Whether you’re buying your first house, liquidating your business or making other big life decisions, expert advisors can help evaluate the items you have for sale and give you tips on next steps.
Explore Your Options. Selling your home, land, collectibles or other personal property is a big decision. Make sure you know all of the options available so you can make the best choice for you. For example, if you’re moving out of state for an exciting new job opportunity, time is likely of the essence. In this case, a quicker timeline—such as that provided by public auctions—may be the right solution for you.
