Selling Your Home: How you get it ready for the next owners

When selling a home, you are obligated to deliver the property to the new owners in what is deemed a "broom swept" condition.

If you have valuable items that you would rather sell, then may we recommend John Nye at (973) 984-6900. You will want to get the valuables out of the way so that no harm to them will occur during the moving process.

The first order of business should be to have the auction house come and take out any and all valuable paintings and antiques that he plans on selling. I believe he is working with Nye and Company (). If these valuable items are removed it will be easier to sort the rest without a risk that something important goes missing or gets lost or mistreated. Perhaps Nye can also help recommend someone to specially pack and ship any artwork or valuables that he is taking to the W. Coast.

Here are some other professionals who can help:

Personal Organizer: to help your dad sort through his items and decide what is staying and going. Pam Carlson of Ready, Set, Organize 972-818-4728

House Sale Companies for items he might want to sell in this way:

Bargain Hunter Mama Estate Sales 646-823-5231
Mary Wood Estate and House Sales 973-783-2942

One of the most challenging items to deal with are your old books. They weigh a lot to move and you probably haven't opened one in ages. So, if you are thinking of getting rid of them, consider the following: Book/CD Donations: can be taken by Books B Gone 908-912-6652

Disposal Company: that can remove and dispose of items he isn't taking: Bulk Be Gone 973-746-6666, they are out of Montclair; there are also College Hunks.

Moving Companies:
First Class Movers 973-727-9824
Harrington Moving and Storage 973-313-2246

Cleaning Companies: Who can give the house a "once over" before the walk through on closing day.

Clean World Sandra 973-704-1753
Scrub Systems 800-540-4418
Cat'z Cleaning Services Cathy Ann Waithe 973-309-3356
