Hi, Jenifer.
Your question is under home selling, so when you ask "Where do I start, so much stuff?" I'm not sure if you mean how do you start the selling process because it seems complicated to you, or are you talking about your possessions and how to pare down to move?

As far as the selling part, that's easy. You need a skilled, experienced agent who works for a company with terrific marketing. That person should be very hard-working and dedicated and someone you really click with. Once it's listed, your agent will do the rest. We are pros at getting properties sold.

If you mean getting rid of your "stuff" meaning eliminating possessions, the best guideline I heard is if you don't need it, use it or love it, get rid of it.

Agree with the comments, start with an agent. Interview a few and decide on one. Don't use multiple agents.

Hi Jenifer

Start with any of the fine agents who are responding to your question on this board
and they will walk you through the "so much stuff".

For agents it is a full time job, and they will help you make it easy.

Good luck.

Not sure what you mean by too much stuff but assume it may have something to do with personal possessions. For this, I have a theory....moving more frequently prevents the piles from becoming too high and too deep, making it easier for future moves.

Hi, The easiest place to start is getting yourself pre approved for a mortgage. You can go directly to a bank and get only what they have to offer or you can go through a broker who will shop for the best rate for you. Once you have an actual amount a lender is willing to lend you, you can then look for an agent to work with. Start asking people you trust for referrals, they tend to be the best bet. Once have an agent that you are comfortable with they will guuide you through the entire process. It will should relieve you of a lot of questions and concern so you can enjoy the process.

Good Luck!

Selling or Buying is a step by step process. Contact a good Real Estate agent and she/he will walk you through this process. That is exactly what we do.

Hi Jenifer,

That's a great question, and I think the other agents have good answers. If you're looking to sell, it would be a good idea to ask your friends and neighbors for a recommendation. If you don't find one that way, try calling a couple of agents from Trulia (yes, that includes me!) to see which one you work best with.

If you're looking to buy, a good buyer's agent is also recommended. Right around the same time, one of the first things you might want to do is speak with a lender and get pre-approved to get an idea of what price range you'd like to focus on. I wrote a little about that here:


If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them via e-mail, phone or text!

If you are requesting about selling your home, first you will need to find a qualify brokerage that will serve your expectations in terms of advertising, negotiating, availability to show the property to prospective buyers, communicate fairly with other brokers with clients, availability to do at least 2 open houses per week, etc.

I can offer my service to help you out with that. And remember the commission is always negotiable.

Call me.
