Value and benefit of a service

I’ve been meeting people lately who desperately need our assistance but procrastinate and think they can do it themselves. Some of these individuals could but don’t know where to begin or have the resources. Some individuals have physical and mental disabilities and are head strong about what they can or cannot do. Moving forward on decision without weeks of contemplating and dwelling on issues.

So what is the “value and benefit” of using a professional service? You hire an attorney to make sure you abide by the law. You hire an account to make sure your in alignment with the IRS. Your hire a senior move manager – professional organizer for the following reasons:

  • Experienced, trained, ethical, trustworthy, and confidential
  • Coordinating, arranging, organizing and executing the plan
  • Support as a coach, a mom, a friend, a therapist on listening to all the emotional issues in one‘s life
  • A resource for most situations in moving, selling, dealing with divorce, dementia, and sibling quarrels, family dynamics and more
  • Insured, bonded and background checked
  • Respective and ask permission prior to conducting a task
  • Security and safety is critical
  • Resident works alongside of us
  • We just get the project done in a timely and efficient manner. Our rates our competitive

We come in with fresh eyes with no judgement. Believe me, we have seen it all and more!!! With proven track record the value of selling your home goes up when our team comes in and de-clutters, stage, removing dated pieces and accessories, and pack up items you want to keep. We suggest painting if needed with latest color palette, organize repair work needed so your home is "buyer ready". Agents love us because the home is ready for showings. Buyers first judge the home with online pictures. If the rooms are not show ready the pictures will relfect that view. We complete this process with all of our clients (if they chose). Recently a home we completed had a bidding war of offers and the property owner ended up receiving $6,000 over listing price.

If you can sell your house for asking price, what is that value? If you had an extra pair of hands to hevauseelp you sort, de-clutter and stage your home, what is that value? If you could sell unwanted household items and make a few bucks, what is that value? What is the dollar value of eliminating the emotional, physical and mental anguish and sleepiness nights on moving and downsizing?

Let us add value and benefit to your project!

How to: sort or "right size" your home before a move

We usually get the call from home owners wanting or needing to move or right size when they are at the “OVERWHELMED” stage. Home owners just take everything out of drawers and closets and just put them on the floor. This method creates visual “CHAOS” AND MAJOR”CLUTTER”.

Pick one room and start at the door and work your way around the room going through drawers, closets and cabinets. Have a box of 30 gallon trash bags handy and label three bags and tape the label on to read: “donate”, “shred” and “trash”. Donate clothes and all accessories unless from the 1940- 1960’s (called today vintage). There is a fine line on what to donate and what to sell. This is where the experts come in.

Don’t wait, take all donations in the bags to your car for your donation site that afternoon or next morning. Remove all trash bags and put into the discard receptacle. The room you are working on will be cleared for you to review and evaluate more. Shredding can be taken to community day or there are many shredding companies around town.

Items you wish to keep…. if they bring you “LOVE, JOY AND HAPPINESS” can be left in drawers if not glass or liquid. Other items can be boxed and labeled and placed in that cleared out closet ready for real estate showings.

Once you have totally completed one room it will give you the satisfaction and gratifying accomplishment to move on to the next room. Though remember: do these items I am moving or rightsizing my living space bring me “love, joy and happiness”. If so, you must keep it. If you are limited on space and the items gives you little to no feeling, it’s time to “repurpose it” and let someone else enjoy it.

Fair Split: A "cloud" based household inventory

Fair Split is a “cloud” based online household inventory used to divide “things” not “families”. This tool is used for estate division for heirs, pre-planning for retirement, distribution and downsizing.

This product is a great planning tool for professionals such as: attorneys, financial planners, insurance companies, real estate agents to help their

clients plan for the future of their household items prior to:

  • their demise

  • fire

  • theft

  • items resident wants to donate to charities

  • personal property for insurance reasons (jewelry/art/collections)

  • special items to go to friends or family members

  • planning wills, estates, retirement, or for real estate agents whose clients family might have disputes over items in the home prior to closing

In the event a household inventory was not done prior to a person’s passing or disaster, an inventory can be created so the adult children/heirs/POA’s can view items on line and know how owner wanted their items distributed. This tool saves time and money to the heirs/POA’s not living in the same city to view online rather than take time off from work, away from families busy schedules, airplane fare expenses ,or vacation time.

Fair Split inventory is kind of like an auction but members who are invited to view the household inventory on a number scale place an emotional scale value. The invitee who has the higher number is awarded the item. But this is only done if family members are challenging each other over one item.
