Should You Have an Appraisal Before an Estate Sale?
In addition to helping you find new “homes” for items you no longer need or want, estate sales can be a great way to earn some extra cash. And like any sale, you want to be sure you get the most for your items – especially for those that might be valuable. Unfortunately, determining the value of many of the items we own is a skill most of us do not possess. And every year, there is at least one story about someone scoring an amazing deal at an estate sale, yard sale, or thrift store; turning small investment into thousands of dollars (or more) in profit. That sure is great news for the lucky buyers – but for the sellers, not so much.
