So what do real estate, gun collections and barf bags have in common? If your are a real estate agent in Pueblo or Southern Colorado you have probably seen some unusual collections while showing property. Everything from gun collections to antique farm equipment to Bronco football pins.
Your collections of cook books, John Elway memorabilia, vintage televisions (or what ever) are not going to help you sell your property. In some cases you can offend a potential buyer. These collections might be nice to show off but unless you are selling them with the house, pack them up. Getting collectables boxed up and put away is a good way to start the moving process. You have to start somewhere so why not start with the things you don’t immediately need, the things you value, stuff you don’t want to go missing and the stuff that can put off a buyer from buying your property.
If you don’t want to take your collection with you or you inherited a property find out what the collection is worth. The internet is a great place to start. Don’t assume the ‘junk’ in the house has no value. In a recent article on www.mylifesinfo.com a a comment was made about people who collect air sickness (barf) bags. Who knew?
One persons treasure is another persons trash. Don’t keep these treasures and collections around, pack them up, research the collection, sell it, but don’t display it!
