There are a few things families or individuals that are rightsizing can do advance of us coming in to set up for the sale.
First, remove items from the residence that are not for sale. We know in some cases this is impossible, but at minimum know which items will not be part of the sale, so they can be isolated in a designated area of the home until they can be removed.
Secondly, go through and dispose of unwanted personal paperwork. Many local businesses offer bulk shredding services if you don't have time to do it yourself. In a few cases, clients have contracted us to sort through and pull out possibly relevant documentation and to dispose of the remainder. This service is available for an additional charge.
The next item is 'what not to do'. Don't try and decide what is sellable - leave that to us. People will buy partial bottles of cleaner, tupperware lids with no bottoms and chipped collectibles. Throwing away things is throwing away money!
If there is a vehicle involved and title needs to be transferred on it prior to the sale, start that process. Florida Department of Motor Vehicles has an excellent tool on their website that walks you through the process of title transfer and required documentation.
Finally, relax and let us handle it. We are experts in our field, and you are paying us to take the stress and pressure off you!
