"Many people vastly overestimate the value of their furniture and collections. Antique furniture and collectibles that were highly desirable 20 years ago may not be worth what you paid for them today. Just because it's old doesn't mean it's valuable, those collectors have moved on or they've got all they want. The young kids – they're not really interested in old things" says Helaine Fendelman, an appraiser of fine arts, collectibles and antiques in New York who writes the syndicated "Treasures in Your Attic" column, was co-author of the book of the same title and was a co-host of the syndicated PBS TV show.
While having a yard sale or estate sale on your own may seem like a good way to make some money and start to clear many items out of your loved ones home, often these sales are much more work and yield far less than most people anticipate.
If you do decide to have your own yard sale or estate sale, "price things to sell because the object is to get rid of them, not to get rich," says Lauri Ward, a home design expert in New York and Boca Raton, Florida, and author of several books, including "Downsizing Your Home With Style." Upholstered furniture, armoires and wall units, once expensive, are now out of fashion. "These are not valuable any more," she says. "You can't sell them today."
Make sure family members get a chance to take mementos. This could involve drawing lots, a family meeting or inviting family and friends to take items from those you don't plan to sell. Determining which items should be should be sold will vary according to the preferences and needs of the family. A simple discussion among family members often helps make this decision. Source.
