MaxSold Year In Review 2018

There are a variety of reasons why people sell an entire house full, or a substantial amount of their home in 2018:


* Other: Business inventory clear-out, storage, renovation and fundraising

**Other: Comprehensive analysis of 5000+ MaxSold clients letting go of their worldly possessions.


Our buyers loved the variety of items on MaxSold - as evident by the number of page views on MaxSold, and users, with an astounding time spent per visit on MaxSold shopping for deals and unique finds. Many of our buyers are die-hard fans - they enjoy the "thrill of the hunt" for something unique with a story instead of it coming from a store.

Downsizing means new beginnings and adventures. While many of our clients who downsized or moved migrated south to Florida, Texas and California to escape the North East, some of our clients migrated further south to tropical paradise - Costa Rica and Panama were our clients' favourites in 2018.


Some of our adventurous clients left to travel around the world in a sailboat, and one client even left in a luxury RV to travel around North America!


In 2018 we helped 1000s of clients sell their items with our 11-day, 3-step local expert help process across North America. With some of the Estates we managed, we had families reviewing the catalog from Japan, California, and Europe!

Lots of those people took the environmentally conscious (and money saving) route to sell everything through MaxSold, instead of sending their perfectly good pre-owned goods to the landfill. We also save our clients money by providing an outlet to sell the goods instead of putting it off indefinitely in storage (self-storage industry is $38 billion a year!)

MaxSold was featured on lots of media outlets in 2018, including...


The biggest benefit was a huge "burden of stuff" that was lifted from their shoulders (as selling a lifetime of possessions can be daunting)...



 

...and our clients took joy in seeing their treasures being enjoyed by new families.


 


It never ceases to amaze us about how MaxSold buyers upcycle and repurpose things. Here's a organ that was upcycled into a bathroom vanity!



Referrals (from previous MaxSold sellers, attorneys, real estate professionals, move managers, professional organizers, appraisers, funeral homes) and Repeat Sellers (running antique stores, flea markets, consignment stores and even traditional estate sales) were a big part of MaxSold sales in 2018.


Repeat & Referral business was more than half of MaxSold sales in 2018. To learn more about how you can partner with MaxSold, visit our Partner Page HERE.
