Moving your stuff after you sell your house.
If you have lived in a Warner Robins Georgia house for a long time and are currently selling, you have probably accumulated a lot of stuff in your house. You may need some tips on moving your stuff after you sell your house.
Knowing what to do with all of your stuff is the most difficult part. Most people will sell or donate the extra stuff in their Warner Robins house before they sell, but what about the sentimental things you cherish? It can be even harder to let go of certain item you are important to you. Below, we discuss a few things you can do to take the sting out of downsizing your house in Warner Robins Georgia.
Have An Estate Sale in the Warner Robins House you’re selling
The good thing about estate sales is that the items you are selling can stay right where they are, you don’t have to move them. People will come into your home, making offers on furniture and other items you wish to sell throughout the property. You can hire a professional estate sale company to help set things up. It can be a good idea to strategically place items, almost staging them to be presented in their best light. This also a good way to stage and advertise the house before you put it on the market, just make sure to clean everything to make it look its best. Don’t get too emotionally attached to items you are selling, impeding a potential sale.
Donate Your Old Belongings
If you aren’t in a pinch for cash, rather than selling your items, you can donate usable items to someone who could really use them. There are a number of organizations you can reach out to who will help you put your old items to better use. Some of these organizations will even come and pick up your stuff, saving you even more work! Clothing, furniture, and toys can all find great homes elsewhere where they will be highly appreciated. Be sure to keep track of all of the items you donate. Keeping a record of the items and their values may be needed if you want to write them off your taxes at the end of the year.
Pass Items onto Family
Do you have kids or grandkids who may be interested in the items found throughout your home? It may be time for some family heirlooms to go to the next of kin. If you are downsizing out of your Warner Robins house, check in with your family first to see which items they may be interested in keeping for themselves. It will make you feel good knowing that items that are important to you are now bringing joy to members of your family.
Take Pictures of Your Sentimental Items
Oftentimes we hang on to so many things out of sentiment that are rarely looked at and instead, just end up taking up space. A rose here, the kids art project or birthday cards from an old friend can take up space quick. Making a photo scrapbook of these items can save a lot of space. You can take your treasured photos anywhere and back them up so they aren’t lost. This will be easier to move to your new Warner Robins Georgia house.
Sell Your House Directly To a home buyer in Warner Robins
If there is just too much stuff to handle or you’re not physically able to finish such a task before you sell your Warner Robins house, Real Estate Problem Solver can buy your house as-is. We will take care of anything you don’t want to take with you.
Hire Someone to Clean-Up
You can always hire someone to professionally clean and someone else to haul away all of your junk. It doesn’t always make sense if you are attempting to save money, so donation, letting us buy your house as-is, or having an estate sale can all make a bit more sense. There are hauling companies that will pick up anything left behind for a fee.
