Why should I sell some of my belongings before I die?

If you no longer need or use them it is a good financial decision and you can use the money to meet other immediate costs to enjoy life.   This will allow you to make more room in your home and eliminate the cost of storage if you are moving now or in the future to a smaller residence.  It takes the burden off  family members  if you become unable to carry out this task yourself.  It can reduce your insurance on valuable items that you don't want or don't use anymore and no family member is interested in having the item/s in their possession.   (e.g. cars, motor homes, trailers, appraised antiques, artwork)
