SAN CARLOS − Host, Sarah Rutan:  When preparing for a move, you’ll need to priorities which items you’ll take with you, and which items you’ll leave behind. Today we’re in San Carlos with Diamond Certified Expert Contributor, Sandy Rostad of The Rostad Team of Coldwell Banker to learn about an often over looked option for discarding your excess belongings.

Diamond Certified Expert Contributor, Sandy Rostad: For sellers moving out of the area, out of state, or just simply downsizing, many ask themselves: What are we going to do with all this stuff? We all know we’re guilty of accumulating things over the years. And when it comes to move time, it’s really important to prioritize what you’re going to take with you.

For those items that you don’t want to take, there – an option to – there is an option to donate the items. There is several family service agencies in San Mateo County, and I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with StarVista and Habitat for Humanity in – both located in San Carlos, both non-profit organizations. They are happy to come and pick up these items from your home and donate them to families in need.

And I think it’s just the big reward is knowing that you are helping others, knowing that your furniture is going to a good home, and, also, an added benefit is you get to use this for tax purposes.
