S y Senior How to Sell Unwanted Sa by Jim Miller H t Sll U Burial Plots Dear Savvy Senior, How do I go about selling unwanted burial plots in my hometown cemetery? When my parents died about 25 years ago my husband (at the time) and I bought two plots near them in the same cemetery. But we’ve gotten divorced since then and have both moved out of state. Besides that, I would like to be cremated instead of buried. Looking to Sellr Dear Looking, Life changes such as relocating, family disputes and divorce, along with the growing popularity of cremation in the U.S., is causing more and more people to sell previously purchased burial plots they don’t intend to use any longer. But, depending on where you live and the location of the cemetery, selling a plot can be diffi cult. And, if you do sell it, you’ll probably get less than what you initially paid for it. Here’s are a few tips to get you started. Contact the cemetery: Your fi rst step in selling your unwanted burial plots is to contact the cemetery and find out if they would be interested in buying them back, or if you’re allowed to sell them yourself to another person or family. And if so, what paperwork will you need to complete the sale and is there a transfer fee? Some states require sellers to off er the plot back to the cemetery before selling it to others. Selling options: If you fi nd that it’s OK to sell your plots yourself, many people choose to use a broker. There are a number of companies, like PlotBrokers.com and GraveSolutions.com, that will list your plots for sale and handle the transaction for a fee and possibly a commission. If you go this route, you’ll sign paperwork giving the broker permission to work on your behalf. Listings can last up to three years or until the plots sell. Alternatively, or simultaneously, you can also list them yourself on sites like The Cemetery Exchange, GraveSales.com along with eBay and Craigslist, and handle the transaction yourself. In the ad, be sure to post pictures, describe the area where the cemetery is located and give the plot locations. What to ask: Appropriate pricing is key to selling your plots. It’s recommended that you fi nd out what the cemetery is selling their plots for today and ask at least 20 percent less. If you’re pricing too close to what the cemetery charges, there’s no incentive for potential buyers. Beware of scammers: If you choose to sell your plots yourself, it’s not unusual for scam artist to reach out and try to get your personal fi - nancial information. Phone calls tend to be more genuine than emails and text messages. Donate them: If you don’t have any luck selling your plots, and if money isn’t an issue, you can donate them to charity such as a religious congregation, a local veteran’s group or an organization that aids the homeless. To get a tax deduction, you’ll need an appraisal, which a cemetery or broker may supply for a fee. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

Let the mayor and the bankers point out where I have it wrong,” writes Resnek. “Bottom line – the mayor got $96,000 from the city clerk by threatening him.” “Think I have this fat (expletive). I’ve been working for three years to bring him down,” he states. “Let me know what you think.” On Sept. 6, 2021, Resnek also emails Walt Pavlo. Jr., an expert on white collar crime and the federal justice system with respect to his upcoming Sept. 8th article which he sent to Pavlo. “This is an early iteration of a (expletive) masterpiece that will bring this (expletive) down!” writes Resnek. On Sept. 30, in a text exchange with Globe reporter Andrea Estes, who Resnek claimed in his depositions het attempted to feed Estes with his stories with the hopes the Globe would pick up on it, Estes requests that Resnek go to speak to Everett Co-operative Bank offi cials, saying she knew someone who was friends with the president. Resnek replies that he can’t “go there” as they “play Carlo’s game for him”. “Have u tried? replies Estes. Resnek, again trying to persuade Estes into doing his dirty work, tells Estes that the bank president knows that he “knows everything. I can’t go after him. You can. I can’t.” “Why?” asks Estes. “My partner owes the bank about $6 million,” replies Resnek, adding, “Even I have RESNEK | SEE PAGE 17 CITY OF EVERETT - LEGAL NOTICE - ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS 484 BROADWAY ROOM 24 EVERETT, MASSACHUSETTS 02149 To Whom It May Concern:: This notice is to inform you that a public hearing will be held on Monday, August 15, 2022 at 6:00 PM, Everett City Hall, 3rd Floor George Keverian Hearing Room.
