Helping your aging parents downsize or even inheriting a house and all its contents can be an overwhelming process for anyone. It can be difficult to manage the responsibilities involved with our own estate—much less that of someone else!
But our team at LAWSON & CO auction house is here to help. Before you start to feel too lost in the details, take a step back and consider your options. You don’t have to be burdened by extra belongings. There are plenty of easy ways to convert those items into cold, hard cash.
How Do I Sell My Parents’ Stuff?
Sometimes the first thing we think of for getting rid of stuff is to donate unwanted items. While this is noble for many items, it may not be the best course of action for every piece of furniture in the home. Your loved one’s belongings might benefit someone in need, but that doesn’t mean you have to give away every item. There is likely money to be made, and that can be separate from other donations.
The other direction some people consider is to organize a garage sale. Yet this is rarely as beneficial as it might seem. It’s challenging to spread the word of a garage sale on your own, and you may not have the insight to assess what’s really worth selling, or at what price point. You don’t want to list furniture or collectibles too low and lose out on money. But you also won’t want to go too high and risk missing the sale altogether.
Think Estate Auction for Easy Liquidation
Rather than deal with the hassles of a garage sale or forgo potential sales, it can help to partner with an experienced team. There are plenty of different options for getting rid of your inherited belongings, whether through an onsite estate auction or other means of liquidation. You can be as involved or as hands-off as possible.
An auction can help ensure that you get top dollar for every piece in the home. An onsite estate auction can limit the legwork upfront. You won’t need to transport any items because the buyers will just come to you. Finding ways to liquidate assets in a streamlined, professional way can certainly save a lot of headaches. It’s just a matter of finding the right auction house or liquidation company to help you sort through the details. They can also help you announce the event, so you have the biggest turnout. These matters can be hard to deal with on your own.
