If there has not been any preplanning for retirement communities and dispersing of household items, the aging adult and their families are overwhelmed with the entire task. In many cases, Mom or Dad gets sick and the family is left to deal with the household contents. Family squabbles interfer with the end result - liquidation. Who gets what, I don't want the items in my house, already have too much, and my children don't want it. Grandma's $25,000 dining set is worth so little in todays market. What's valuable, how to get the greatest value for "stuff" and how to sell/dispose of the items?
