2014 Was A Big Year For Estate Sales – Happy New Year and Welcome 2015

2015-fireworks-art-word2014 saw a huge growth in the estate sale industry. When the year started there were approximately 5,000 estate sale companies and by today December 31st the number has grown to almost 7,000.

Almost every area of the country saw growth. The metro areas saw the biggest increase.

During 2014 many changes took place including laws pertaining to the sale of ivory, endangered species, and migratory birds.

In many areas estate sale companies opened consignment stores and included online auctions in their repertoire.

A second estate sale conference was held in Memphis, TN by EstateSales.Net and 2015 will see a third conference in Chicacgo at the end of June.

Estate sale listing websites greatly increased their capabilities. These websites that started out as places to list estate sales and estate sale companies now offer everything from online auctions, routing to an estate sale, to how to choose an estate sale company. Even other new estate sale listing websites were formed.

Educational opportunities abound and the number of companies that teach how to work with senior citizens and the elderly also increased.

All in all 2014 has been quite a year and here at EstateSalesNews.com we have tried to provide coverage, news, and a source for sellers, estate sale companies, and buyers.

We wish you all a Happy New Year. May it be healthy and prosperous.
