Storage 

If you have to store your stuff until it sells at the very least it's taking up valuable space in your home. Worst case scenario, you're actually renting storage space so that you can hold on to stuff that you no longer want. You should carefully weigh how much you expect to get when you sell items versus what it's costing to store them. Even if there isn't an easily identifiable fee associated with storage there are subtle hidden costs that can add up quickly. If clutter and a lack of space are getting you down you may be spending money to make yourself feel better. That cost is directly related to the stuff you're holding on to.

Timing

How often do you have to meet someone at an inconvenient time? Do those meetings ever lead you to grab a meal, a snack, or even a coffee while you're out? If yes, deduct that cost from your profit.

Distance

Speaking of those meetings, how far do you have to drive to meet up? Most people prefer not to have strangers coming to their homes. That means you have to drive somewhere. If you have a nearby spot that works, that's great. Often you have to drive a few miles to meet. Not only are you burning gas, you're also putting miles on your car which increases the amount of maintenance it will require.

So, What Are We Saying?

We aren't saying that it isn't worth selling your stuff. We're just suggesting that you put a little thought into it and make an informed decision.
