You might have valuable items in your home and not even know it! Many of us put unwanted or old items in our garages, but do you actually know what you have in there? Something could be rare or worth a lot of money. Time to clean out the garage or house and search for these things!
Here are some items in your home that might be worth a lot of money.
1. Old Furniture
If you have antique furniture that is still in good condition, you might have a goldmine on your hands. Check the inside drawers and see if the hardware looks original. If there are extra holes around the bolts, it probably isn’t original.
If you still have toys that are in their original packaging, they may be worth a lot of money. If you have a used toy, it probably isn’t worth much. See if you have any unopened dolls, action figures or train sets.
If you are a coin collector, you could be sitting on lots of money. Very old coins may have silver plating which is worth money. However, it can be easily wiped off, so make sure you store your coins in mint condition. If you see an “EPNS” stamp on your coin, that gives a clue that it is silver plated as well.
Of course, jewelry can be very expensive and vintage jewelry can be worth tons. Look for brand names and items still in good condition. Make sure to get it appraised to double check that it is real, especially if it has been passed down through generations.
The best way to find out if something in your home is worth money is to have it appraised by an expert. Search online and see if anything in your home is worth having an appraisal expert look at it. You just never know sometimes with vintage or old items, especially if they were passed down through generations!
