When you look around your home, do you see any hidden treasures?
For many, their homes have many more valuable items in them than they have come to realize over time.
With this thought in mind, do you have any hidden treasures in your home?
What is Sitting Around Your Place?
In checking out your home, here are some hidden treasures you may not realize are worth some money:
- Movie collections – Yes, Blockbuster went out of business years ago. That said how people watch movies these days is quite different from older days. That is when they would walk in a movie rental store and shop aisle after aisle for the latest hits or classics. That said you may have your share of movies at home that are in fact worth a few dollars each. If you do, do you plan on keeping them or selling at some point and time? One way to go about finding out are rare VHS tapes valuable is by talking to the experts. Take some time to go online and get some quotes on how much your VHS and even newer films and shows may be worth. Now, do not expect to become a millionaire overnight with any such collection. For many people, their movie and show collections are for their own entertainment. The thought of selling them probably is not high on their priority lists. That said knowing if they have value is worth one’s time and effort to discover.
- Sports collectibles – Depending on the size of a sports collection, you may have money. Once again, your best bet is to get with an expert or two who knows this industry. They can bring you up to speed on whether your collection could be worth a fair amount of dollars. It may well be a collection that is more based on sentimental value. Among some collectibles are autographs, photos, pennants, ticket stubs, jerseys and more. As with a movie collection or any other collection, the care you put into your collection goes a long way. If your sports collection is not well taken care of, chances are it will not be worth much in the way of money.
- Doll collections – If you collected dolls as a young girl or they were passed along to you, what kind of shape are they in? Doll collections like other notable ones do have some value. Of course it will come down to which dolls they are and the condition they are in. Over time, if they were properly cared for, they can be in good shape to this day. While you may decide to sell them for money, you may instead keep them for the next young girl to come in your family.
No matter where you find entertainment in life, you may have a collection that is worth money.
So, is it time to start going through your home to see what you might have sitting around?
