Estate Sale Companies – High End, Middle Of The Road, A-Z 1 day to 3
As the estate sale industry continues to enlarge by leaps and bounds estate liquidators are choosing to what types of sales they want to handle. This applies from the east coast to the west coast and from the north to the south.
Some estate liquidators prefer to handle only high value estates (designer furniture, gold and silver jewelry, listed art and glass etc.). It means they handle fewer sales, but they expect greater financial returns for the seller and their commissions. Many other estate sale companies work with the average house contents (furniture, kitchenware, lawn and garden, clothing etc.) They may hold more sales, but they too provide a much needed service. Then there are companies that will work from a 1 day sale (usually a partial contents) to a 3 or 4 day sale including a hoarders house.
Whatever company you choose, ask how they obtained their experience and knowledge.
Remember that retail prices do not apply to estate sales. It’s like buying a car, once it leaves the lot the price declines. Unless it is a one of a kind, extremely unique or a rare antique, it will not bring the price you purchased it for.
How your items are priced will determine how successful your sale is (that is not to suggest anything be given away in price), but it is important to price right. That also does not mean that eBay is the only source for prices. There is a host of available data on the internet to assist with pricing not the least of which are professionally trained certified personal property appraisers.
If you have just a general contents home or property find the estate sale company that will be competent, knowledgeable, and excited to bring you financial success.
Remember it isn’t what a company sells, it is how well they succeed at what they are selling.
