If you’re like me and my wife, you have a lot of “stuff” (for lack of a more pleasing word) that will simply not fit in a downsized home. I frequently help buyers who want a garage only to store “stuff”. The time-tested method is, of course a “garage sale”. But they are subject to the whims of the weather (if it rains the day(s) of your garage sale, you won’t sell much) and while summer in Portland is usually dependable for decent garage sale weather, the other three seasons are a gamble. And if you don’t have a yard or driveway?
Second place is certainly Craigslist.org but I also found an article click here that lists several competing apps as methods to sell that unwanted “stuff”. Enjoy, and call me when you’re ready for the downsized home or if you’d just like an idea of what your present home would sell for.
