Estate Sales – What effects them the most

money moversEstate Sales across the country can be effected by several things, but the most common are location, weather, and who is running the sale.

You can choose who runs your estate liquidation, but you cannot control the location (most of the time) and certainly not the weather.

Recently there have been some very nice estate sales that appeared to be well advertised and the weather was ok, however, the properties were located in areas where unemployment has been a continuing problem. As the result the sales proceeds weren’t not as high as they might have been in an area where unemployment is not a factor. That old real estate saying “location, location” even applies to estate sales.

The weather can also be a problem. If spring is suppose to be here and it’s snowing out, sales can be off. This also applies to heavy rain and windy conditions. Right now in April websites like have thousands of sales posted for every weekend because the weather is reasonable, barring a few exceptions. January and February can be difficult in the Midwest and Northeast, but many times after being snow bound or frozen in time (so to speak) can bring the buyers flooding out to sales for relief.

The professional estate liquidation company you choose is also important. Please check out our pages on what to be listening and looking for from an estate sale company.

Well it’s Friday and there are so many sales, if you are in need of an estate sale company go check out a few sales in your area. Watch the company in action. Or, if you are on the hunt be it for furnishings, jewelry, artwork or even a car this is a great weekend to go shopping, go green and save over retail.
