Before you move, you likely need to sell your current home to get into the new place. If you have an older home, this can be challenging if there are repairs and maintenance that need to be done. Sometimes, paint and landscaping that has fallen into disarray can affect your home's value and the chances of selling it. This is why, before you get ready to put your home on the market, you may want to do some simple improvements to make a quick sell.
Estate sales take place most frequently when someone has passed, when the property owners are downsizing, or when financial problems force a sale. Each of these life situations is difficult, but it's devastating when the seller realizes they (or a loved one) have spent a great deal of their life amassing a prized collection of antiques or other valuables without any real monetary value. It is always better to prepare for this possible outcome prior to the sale day.
