Welcome to our website and the anniversary of twenty years in the valuation services business. We have helped many families in the midst of downsizing, moving, and redecorating. There have been many articles discussing this subject and the issue is usually going from a larger home to a smaller home. People often just do not need the extra items they have collected over the span of many years. Many of these downsizers have adult children of their own with bulging homes and grandchildren with different tastes. The millennials today have a different mindset in decorating than those of their parents and grandparents.
We recommend deciding what you want to keep or give to relatives and friends, and then decide whether you want to sell or donate. The first thing you should do is hire us. - And we are not kidding, as you may have items received as wedding gifts that are now quite valuable. Some items may have collectible value, artworks may have increased in value, and the only way to find out is to start with a consultation with us to evaluate your items. We then will recommend a variety of ways to help you let go of these possessions. We can point you to the correct market for your items, or with a formal appraisal we can help you take a charitable donation deduction against your taxes while helping your old college or the many organizations who can use these items.
