Joan Rivers Gave Her Daughter Melissa Good Advice – Estate Sales & Auctions

To educateReading Sunday about the passing of Joan Rivers and her instructions Estate Sales News was interested in what Ms. Rivers had told the Daily Beast that she had told her daughter Melissa, “Sell anything and everything you don’t want. Don’t feel beholden to my possessions”. Although she didn’t suggest how to sell her possessions estate sales for many, auctions for others are the primary way to liquidate.

After reading this we used CRTS (Certified Relocation Specialists) and to research other opinions.

Whether you are downsizing or preparing your instructions for the end of life, it is a benefit to tell your family or friends (if no family) your feelings about the disposal of your possessions and how you feel and if you’re going to change your life style start by hiring a professional, be it an estate sale company or auction or in many instances today a combination depending on what is to be sold and their value.

In today’s ever changing world with costs rising many people are choosing to reduce their space and costs (including moving to less expensive areas). Many older individuals are moving to assisted living or moving in with family and have very limited space for their belongings.

Deciding what to keep or not to keep is important for peace of mind. It helps reduce stress and emotional discomfort for you and your family.

In some instances (this happened recently with a friend’s father moving to assisted living) the year before moving it is a good idea to invite family in to decide what items they would like to have.

This also makes it much easier when it comes time to bring in a liquidator.

Estate Sales News regrets the passing of Joan Rivers and extends our sympathy to her family and friends. We also thank her for making us laugh and leaving all of us with some good advice.
