Consider the checklist below if there are some aspects that you are pleased with but not necessarily in love.
– Overall good condition
– Good fit for the new home’s layout
It is likely worth taking it with you if it fits the above criteria. A yard sale or a donation center might be better, if the furniture is old and deteriorated, won’t fit well in the new home, or is not comfortable.
Does Furniture have Sentimental Value?
A primary factor is the sentimental value. A treasured family heirloom or a piece that is associated with a special event or time in your life is likely something you do not want to be parted with. It is well worth the investment to take it with you, if it is sentimental, this goes without saying.
Fair Market Value of Furniture
