There’s a lot of value within your home, and it’s not just to do with the amount of money you have in the bank! Instead, you have plenty of assets that hold a lot of intrinsic (and let’s face it, sentimental) value, and now’s the time to find out about them! So, without further ado, let’s go through three of the main everyday items, that you might not think much of, that help when it comes to valuing your household and the contents within it.
Any Property Assets
Of course, one of the main assets you might have under your belt is your home. If you’re a homeowner, the house you’re living in is going to be worth a lot of money, and probably will be the most valuable asset you’ll ever own. It had a hefty price tag, and you’ve got the mortgage to pay off, but it’s an asset a lot of people dream about! Plus, you always have the option to sink a bit more money into your home, to ensure it’s at its top value for the current period.
So, whilst you might not be looking out for land for sale (although this could be a great way to get on the property ladder), the home you already own could be taken to the next level with a bit of redecorating – pulling up the carpets and replacing them with hardwood flooring alone could add a couple thousand more onto the current price tag!
Any Collections You Own
Everybody collects something; it’s just human nature! If you like bottle caps, or if you like beer cans, or if you just like to collect shoes from various places around the world, there’s nothing wrong with what you do. In fact, it could be quite a lucrative asset you own!
So, what kind of collections do you have within your home? Do you have a bunch of old records up in the attic? Do you have some discontinued nail varnish colors on your vanity? Either way, if you do a bit of research, you might find people desperately looking for the records you own to add to their own collections, or to make use of that leftover polish on their nails, and they’ll pay a lot of money to make sure they can get their hands on it!
Any Digital Items
And of course, if you own a computer, you’ve got a tidy amount of money right there in front of you! It takes a lot to put a computer together, and the top line of computers currently available on the market (or to put together yourself) are all going to cost you at least £1000. If you’ve got any old tech or digital items in your home, make sure you take them out to get valued!
Everyday assets hold a lot of value, as long as you can find the right buyer! Do your research and get your items valued, if you need to.
