Estate sales news talks auctions

auction_logoAuctions are becoming more and more popular for off site venues for those that need an estate sale, but can’t have one in their premises or community so Estate Sales News will be starting a discussion on the auction process, the how, where, and working of the auction.

It should be noted that I acquired my auction license in Florida in 2006 after successful completion of auction school, however, I let the license expire when I sold my liquidation business.

Auctions can be held in many locations, on site, in a rented hall, in a building owned by the auctioneer, at a storage facility.

Many people choose an auction because the community (primarily gated), condominium, apartment or occasionally the town will not permit an on site estate sale. They are also sometimes chosen because there may not be an estate liquidator in proximity to the area. Whatever the reason, more and more auctions are appearing on websites that feature auctions as well as estate sales such as EstateSales.net or estatesales.org.

Estate Sales News will be discussing the pros and cons of the auction process in comparison with the estate liquidation business as well as education of the auctioneer and many other considerations if you choose to use this liquidation method.  We are trying to arrange visits and interviews with some auctioneers as well.
