The best estate-sale outfits employ staffers with accurate appraisal skills and that will widely advertise your sale to bring in lots of buyers (remember, you get paid only for stuff that sells).

After you hire a liquidator, its staffers will come in and appraise, price, and arrange the house’s contents. Here’s what to expect from the experience, from contract to after-sale check.

Traditional, in-person sales aren’t your only option for liquidating a house’s worth of possessions. You can hire a company to hawk your stuff online or via auction or just accept a lump-sum payout.

From a toss-out-almost-everything approach to hiring a pro organizer, here are concepts and resources for deciding what to keep and what to toss.

Garages so stuffed they won’t hold cars, black hole-style closets overflowing with clothes you never wear. We’ve got strategies on clearing the clutter and cleaning out everything from toys to old dishes to Granddad’s ugly recliner.

You can hawk your past fashion at brick-and-mortar consignment shops or at online resale sites. We’ve got tips and tricks for getting the most money out of last year’s shoes and shirts.
