If you’re short on time and need to move out of your house in a hurry, here are some tips to assist you.
- If you’re willing to sell some of your household belongings, you may consider turning to sites like eBay, which have the widest audience and bring the best prices. However, you’ll waste valuable time packing and shipping goods. Instead, use your city’s Craiglist or your local newspaper classified, and specify “cash and carry.” Since potential buyers will be coming to your house, for security’s sake, have someone with you when you arrange a pick up.
- Don’t overprice what you own. Unless your furnishings are fashionable and in great condition, they may bring as little as a tenth of what you paid for them.
- Ask your real estate agent for assistance. He or she may know someone in the market for some lawn furniture or may be willing to help you move furniture into the moving truck. You never know if you don’t ask.
To keep moving costs to a minimum, carefully sort through and sell, donate, or give away everything that you don’t need. Otherwise you’ll end up paying extra for movers to pack and ship items that you didn’t want or need in the first place.
