Sometimes it’s time for a really big change. Maybe you’ve had it with the city you live in an desperately need a change of scenery. Or perhaps that acting career is calling to you and you want to give it all up to follow your dreams in Hollywood. Or maybe you’re moving to a new home and want a completely fresh start. In either case, you’re probably going to be selling a vast majority of your items. Now, depending on the circumstances, you’ll want to use a different approach, as some ways pay more, and some are rapid.
If you don’t have a whole lot of time on your hands, you may want to just sell everything lock, stock and barrel, try an estate sale at an auction house. Here, your entire home and all your belongings with it will be sold to the highest bidder. You may not get the most money, but it does the job fast.
If you’ve got some time on your hands, getting the most money for your fresh start will require that you sell to individuals. So get out your camera and hit up sites like ebay and craigslist. This is how you can make the most as there is no middleman involved. Just you and the buyer. This can take time (as certain items don’t have a huge amount of potential buyers) but will give the best payoff.
You could of course, use a combination of the both. Select the choice items for private sale and auction off the rest as a whole lot. This gives you a good balance of time spent and money earned. You won’t be terribly delayed for your fresh start, buy you’ll also have some decent funds to hit the ground running.
