Don’t throw that away

In the process of settling an estate, it is surprising how often property is thrown away or given away - without ever knowing the value of the items. 

 The fact is most people are not aware of the market value of most common household items, let alone the fine art, jewelry, antiques and collectibles.   We retrieved a picture from the trash that sold for $5,000 - a pile of old books that were to be given away sold for $1,500 – and the entire contents of a house that the executor was going to pay someone to cleanout gave the family enough money for repairs, and to have the house painted inside and out before being sold.

 So, before you give away, clean out, or throw away – let me help you determine the value of your personal property.   Any questions about Estate Sales or Personal Property Appraisals, please feel free to contact me.
