Blog | Questions About Downsizing

What would you recommend to someone who wants to downsize?
Do not start giving away or selling property until you know from a professional what it is that you have. You can contact the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) or the Appraisers Association of America (AAA) and get a referral for a certified appraiser to help you sort out your goods. We say, “Act in haste, repent in leisure!”

How do I find out if something has value before giving it away or donating it?
Call us to help you with the process. Sometimes the emotions and memories you have related to your possessions can make the process daunting and overwhelming. We can help with the difficult task of downsizing!
