As we all know sometimes the idea of sorting through a parents belongings can be either too much to think about, or sometimes of no interest to families, or friends.
Our estate clear out service is available to adult children or other family members (who live near or far) and designed to support and assist throughout the process. We do this by sorting all items in the house so they can easily see all that is there, and then determine what they want to keep and what they want to sell. We then connect them with reputable service providers they may also need such as estate sales companies, additional specialty buyers, donation options, and realtors.
Efficient and thorough; allowing the home to be ready to list (if that is the goal) sooner than later.
Start your downsizing in a room farthest from the 'heart of the home'. It will be the easiest place to warm up your downsizing 'muscles'.
Complete one room before starting another. Have boxes, tape, stickies, and markers with you when you begin. Take a photo before and after so you can see your progress.
Notice how you 'feel' when you look at your things not just what you 'think'. Let your inner voice and wisdom guide you. Leave out the 'shoulds'. This is for you!!
When helping your parents ask questions such as "Help me understand", when you may not see the reasoning right away. Avoid using the word 'why?'.
