Retail Sales May Be Down But Estate Sales Selling Is Up!!

Listening to the latest consumer report, retail sales at most stores were down the end of last year and beginning of 2016.

Estate sales, however, are going strong in almost every area.

The ability to buy everything from antiques to boats, trailers, washers, dryers, and other appliances is appealing not only for their prices, but in many places, because they do not charge sales tax. Many states do have estate liquidators charge sales tax so be sure to ask. It isn’t the estate liquidator’s choice, but the states’.

When an estate sale is being priced, research is done by the liquidator to ask a price that reflects the current market. It isn’t necessarily based on eBay or an auction, but may be a compilation of several prices from various sources.

One other reason for such success with estate sales is their time is limited. After the first day you will usually find discounts and the closer to the end of the sale the bigger the discounts may become with the items that haven’t sold.

Just look at the lines. Retailers only see lines on Black Friday, but for estate sales every weekend presents another opportunity for great lines, excellent buys, and of course keeping us green.
