It's Time for a Family Discussion: How to Get Help for an Estate Sale

Family homes and valuables hold so many special memories. Flashbacks of Thanksgiving meals, Christmas celebrations, and backyard gatherings can trigger warm feelings for those who have spent time there with friends and family. That's why it is often so difficult when the decision has to be made to sell the home of family members who have passed away or who have made the move to downsize in their later golden years.

The task of liquidating personal possessions and preparing a home to sell can seem overwhelming from the outset, but you should not have to face this alone. As a Realtor, I consider it a special privilege when clients trust me to help them handle this process. When you allow me into your world to see the sometimes not-so-pretty parts, I can help you figure out what is most important. I will place great value on the home that means so much to you and make sure that a buyer will see that great value too.

One of the ways to make this process go smoothly is for us to work together with a reputable company that specializes in these tasks. Michael Taylor Estate and Moving Sales has been Nashville's leading estate sale company for eight years. They provide comprehensive liquidation services for homeowners and businesses in the Metro area and beyond.

Homeowners looking to stage a home for sale are often faced with the difficult decision of what to do with all of their "stuff." Clients often say that they simply don't know where to start! Their trained, friendly staff understands the emotional challenges of dealing with a home sale/move, and they do their best to make the experience of liquidating personal items stress-free for their clients, while achieving excellent sales results.

Michael Taylor has more than 35 years in the real estate, housing, interior design and antique/vintage resale business; this first-hand industry knowledge and proven experience make all the difference in your results. They have the market knowledge necessary to get top dollar for their clients, and they have long-standing relationships with a loyal customer base who love to buy from their sales.

Whether you are looking to clean out a home or business or simply to downsize, they can help! They also offer the ability to hold estate and moving sales off-site at their 9,000 sq. ft. warehouse/retail store, Michael Taylor At Home, for those who are unable to hold their sale on their property or who need to clean out their home prior to staging their property for sale.

We know that Nashville's real estate market moves fast, and they have the staff and experience to accommodate tight deadlines. I am able to work hand-in-hand with them as your Realtor to make sure the burden is taken off your family's shoulders. Please call me and let's start the discussion!

"You've Got a Friend in Real Estate".... Have wonderful THANKSGIVING

What makes a House a Home

That's easy....You do!  Your home is an extension of you and your family and the memories that dwell there with you.  The pictures of so many past events from your wedding to vacations to special events that are precious to you. Pictures that claim the space on your end tables and decorate your walls with memories.  Many that bring a smile to your face when you pass by.

The noises of the train that passes by in the distance that you love or the peacefulness of no sound at all while you curl up with a good book, a cup of tea and your Aunt Jane's quilt thrown over your legs.

Your house would just be brick and mortar except for the fact that Grandpa Joe's rocking chair sits in your family room and reminds you of a time when you would crawl up on his lap and giggle at all his amazing stories.

A collection of so many items like the rug you picked up in Paraguay and the painting you bought on your honeymoon or those vintage dessert plates that were a steal from that neighborhood garage sale.

The dings and scratches and the imperfections of your humble abode make it all yours - speaking of imperfections, that endless to-do list. There is always a new project to replace that one you just completed.  

You are home.  It's your home - it belongs to just you and yours.
