Do You Have Items in Your Home Worth Money?

by on

When was the last time you did appraisal of the items sitting around your home?

If it has been a while now since you did this, is there the chance you are missing out on some money sitting under your roof?

Too many homeowners and renters have collections at home that they do not know the true value of. As such, they can be sitting on some funds that they could be collecting on.

So, is it time for you to do some inspections around your home to see what is there?

What Could Make You Some Money?

In checking around to see what may be of value to you, you could find surprise with what you come up with.

For instance, do you have a stack or more of collectible VHS tapes?

Sure, many stream entertainment or rely on DVDs to watch their favorite shows and movies. That said are VHS tapes worth anything?

Well, this more times than not depends on what is on the tape and how bad someone else wants it.

So, if you have one or more VHS tapes at home that are in good condition and you can part with, you could pick up some money.

Is Your Collection Organized?

That being the case, you should go through your collection to see what it is you have.

Among some of the likely items would be movies, TV shows, sporting events and more.

Once you have your collection to where you can rattle off the names of it all, your next step is to post such info online. You can also take some of the items you would be okay parting with to your local swap meet or flea market.

If you do move forward with trying to sell some of your VHS tapes, be sure they are in good working order first. The last thing you want to do is sell one or more of them when they may not be in the best of shape. Remember, you would not want to buy a tape or tapes that are damaged, so be considerate of others too.

It is also wise to go through any sports collectibles you might have under your roof.

Yes, while there are repeat collectibles out there in the sports world, there are also some rare ones too.

For example, a rare Honus Wagner or Mickey Mantle baseball card could fetch you a nice sum of money. That said some cards were made so many times over that they have little other than sentimental value.

Whether you have stuff to sell or you want to buy collectibles, find what you are looking for.

In a day and age when info is at your fingertips on the Internet and more, see what items where you live have to offer.

You may unwittingly be sitting on some money that has been there for a while now.

If this is the case, will you cash-in sooner than later?
