Flips, Swaps, Funny Stories & The Pawning Planners…We Don’t Always “Hit A Lick!”
No trade is too crazy or weird for an Appraisal Appointment and we’ve seen a few bizarre offerings lately ya all. My saucy sidekick and twin sister, Cindy Daniel constantly reminds our little twins aka The Little Pawners, Maryssa & Makenna Mahaney that #Cindyism “you can’t profit from the harvest if you don’t plant the crop!” Although we do not take trades involving livestock or firearms- the trades submitted to The Pawning Planners are sometimes as hilarious as our clients. Occasionally, the clients think the item is worth far more than it actually is. Because of this my twin sister Cindy tells folks that “if it won’t get picked up on the curb- we aren’t going to pick it up either Pal!”
We’ve been on a few #Cindyism “Hittin a Lick & Doing It Quick” adventures at Appraisal Appointments as a team The Pawning Planners A Twin Team At An Appraisal Appointment. Our adventures aren’t always a get rich endeavor however as shown in this video Flip THIS House? We Need A Bulldozer & A Backhoe!
Some of the “treasures” we’ve come across were found in places you would never imagine from a chicken coop to a card table bought at a yard sale– the hunt to find items of value is often far more interesting when the client has no idea of the value. Cindy and I have been “junksters” since we were children and actively search for items at junk ships and thrift stores as well as visiting clients (many of whom are hoarders) to find something of value to sell and generate revenue at Texas Twins Treasures.
But, let’s face it- they can’t all be winners. Recently, I met with a lady who wanted a divorce party and was offering her dual cemetery plots since “she didn’t want to be buried anywhere near her husband.” The problem? Her husband owned the deed for the real property she was planning to barter with.
Appraisal Appointments are a MUST when clients submit a trade at my sister site No Money? No Problem! We Take Trades- The Pawning Planners!
Why? Well, many of The Pawning Planners clients often submit a trade that doesn’t actually belong to them. I can’t committ or sign a Texas Twins Events Contract without payment and I won’t sign a Pawning Planners Contract without viewing the item and, if it’s a car, truck, SUV, camper, boat or real property- without viewing required documents pertaining to ownership.
Committing to a project or Dream Event requires my time and if you have no money, I’m paying out of pocket while trying to sell your item at my other sister site Visit My Treasure Chest- Texas Twins Treasures!
Bartering is not without risks because the item taken in trade is valuable only if a market exists which is why I alone make the final decision of taking the trade and evaluating the expense involved to pull off your Dream Event.
My twin sister and mini me twins Maryssa and Makenna Mahaney often accompany me to Appraisal Appointments where we work as a team to find items of value when clients request a liquidation event or, Pawning Party.
While there are cemetery plots in Louisianna listed on my site, they were taken in trade from a family member and I “own the paper.” We cannot and will not market or offer for sale anything without a “clear title.”
“Pawning” with The Pawning Planners doesn’t mean we are loaning you money- we aren’t what you are receiving is actually services that include wedding officiant, funeral clergy, event coordination, photography and numerous other services too long to list here.
Once a “deal” is made and agreed to by both parties (the client and me) I enlist the help of my multigenerational family to accommodate your request and give you the gift of a Dream Event.
I’m hoping this better explains why anything other than shoes, antiques, furniture require documentation pertaining to ownership.
