Where can we find someone to come into home and help us sell good stuff?
We are not wealthy; one of us is 91 the other 72 w/diabetes and we want to remain in our home. We have a great deal of stuff, some good and some we must sell. Need someone to come into home and help us plan and get rid of things we do no need. Also, I need information on health care and other advice as we plan to age in the home.
There are a few ways of doing this. I'm not sure if you have friends or family nearby to help. If you do, I would recommend that they help you with a simple "garage sale". Have them separate the valuable from the not so valuable. Garage sales are not for big ticket items. Furniture, yes. Diamond bracelets... No. This is the easiest and cheapest. And you keep all the profits. There are companies that you can pay to come in and do this. They are called estate sale companies. These type of companies have their advantages and disadvantages. They are going to take a percentage of the money made, but they will be asking a premium price for the items they sell. Here is the thing with them... they will do it all. From organizing to pricing to advertising... everything, that's why it costs you. Another way I can recommend is going through your church. The second part of your question about "health care and other advice as we plan to age in the home". Don't hesitate to ask your questions, that's what were are here for.
