Why did Jesus say to the young man, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me"?

How would selling all his possessions and giving them to the poor make him "perfect"?

Matthew 19:21

ESV - 21 Jesus said to him, "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.
