Estate Sale Commission Last Consideration!

The estate sale commission is your last consideration and here is why.

So many estate sale companies have come on line in the last three plus years competition has become fierce. Many new companies try to compete with a lower commission.

When looking to hire an estate sale company, the estate sale commission should not be what influences your decision. Consider the following before you even ask about the commission.

How long has the company been in business? How did the liquidator gain knowledge and experience to sell personal property contents?

Ask about the estate sale company staff and if they have experience.

Advertising is so important with so many estate sales. Ask where and how they advertise. Do they have a private email list of customers that they send to each week?

How do they conduct their set-up and staging.

Do they research for pricing and where do they look for information. eBay should not be the only answer. Experienced estate liquidators know where to research.

Shopping At Estate Sales In Person Or Online

Shopping estate sales online or in person. Which works for you?

There are some companies that have offered online estate sales. Two large national companies prefer selling this way. Another estate sale listing website has announced that it too will offer online estate sales starting next year. All this in a growing competition to attract buyers and estate sale companies.

How do you like to shop? Do you like to handle and inspect what you’re buying personally or do you trust online sales to include all the necessary photos and information to enable you to make a decision? It is similar in this way to online auctions. You rely on the company selling to provide accurate and complete descriptions.

Many large retailers sell online only, such as Overstock and Wayfair. Selling new items with warranties or return policies can offer security. Online estate sales will usually be used items and the return policy will depend on the estate sale company. Determining whether to buy at an on site estate sale or online estate sale really depends on your comfort zone.
