What is a personal property donation?

Estate or Personal Property donations are a means of contributing personal property items such as furniture, artwork, decor, jewelry, vehicles, etc. to a 501(c)(3) charity or organization in order to support their cause while receiving a tax benefit in return. You can do this for your own personal property, or on behalf of a inherited estate, etc. Estate donations usually contain far more items than your typical clothing or book donation and are intended to get rid of as many household contents as possible. In most cases, completely emptying the home is the desired outcome of an estate donation.


Why Donate?

Why do most people donate their personal property? In short, estate donations are a terrific way to disposition your items quickly without the hassle of trying to sell everything. They are the best way to dispose of your items quickly while guaranteeing the return value in the form of a tax deduction. Not to mention how many individuals and families you can help with much needed items! In addition, you will also be helping to protect the environment by keeping these useful items out of landfills. It’s a win for everyone!

Who typically needs to donate?

People commonly looking to donate their personal property are:

  1. Looking to help those in need.
  2. Seeking a tax benefit.

Estate Clean Out Services: How does it work?

Our experts will work with you from the initial free consultation to the complete execution of your appraisal and everything in between. You don’t need to lift a finger, we take care of everything for you!


When should you complete your donation?

Timing is everything in life, and so is the scheduling of your donation! Most people look to schedule their estate donation around the same time they are selling their home. These are the three scheduling scenarios that usually work best:


Typically for overly cluttered or hoarder homes in which your realtor has suggested you empty.


You have a buyer in place and have secured a purchase agreement. The Estate Pros conduct the estate donation and cleanout, emptying the home within a week or two before closing. The closing occurs and you turn the keys over to the new homeowner.


The home is sold and closed on, you’ve secure a predetermined move out date post closing (leaseback or rental term). The Estate Pros conduct the estate donation and empty the home within a week or two of your move out date. The house is clean and empty. You can move out and turn the keys over to the new homeowner.


How to prepare for an estate donation and cleanout

Having a well thought out plan is important to having a successful estate donation. Here are some preliminary steps to consider before donating.

  1. Take an inventory of the home. A thorough inventory and search of the home will begin preparing you for your donation.
  2. Remove any personal or sensitive items that you don’t want to donate. If it’s something personal or valuable that you don’t want to donate, removing or securing it is essential.
  3. Photograph the contents. A cataloged reference, either in photo or in video format, can serve as documentary evidence of the donation should it be necessary.
  4. Try and stay organized and create lists if necessary.
  5. Partially organizing and cleaning up the home is helpful.
  6. Throw away as much of the trash or unusable items as possible. An initial decluttering will make the donation process much easier.
  7. Know what you want to donate. Clearly identifying the scope of your project to the Estate Pros will make the donation process a lot smoother.
  8. If you have prior appraisals for any of your items, let the Estate Pros know, we can assess these evaluations for accuracy and use them to determine potential final appraisal values.
