Estate Sales Advertising Without Pictures Of Items For Sale

Estate sales that advertise items without showing pictures certainly is disturbing to buyers and sellers.

Looking at estate sales and searching for items is a regular practice. What is disturbing is the written advertising includes items (many larger), but no photos are on the estate sale advertising listing website.

We were looking today for vintage appliances and found one estate sale advertising a galvanized tub, but no photos were included. Advertising vintage items with no photos of a vintage tub, yet a photo of a walke. This is not good advertising.

It is vital to a seller and to attract buyers that items of serious interest have photos on websites that advertise estate sales.

Many estate sale advertising listing websites limit the number of photos or an additional charge is incurred. This should be taken into account by the estate sale company when deciding on their costs.

Advertising items of interest in an estate sale, however, should have photos on advertising websites unless it is a security situation.

Sellers, if you are looking for an estate sale company ask to see their online advertising. Ask how they decide what is and isn’t important. Discuss what items of interest to buyers are in your sale and would they feature photos of them.

Searching for items of serious interest that are included in the listing section of the sale without a photo on the website page is not good marketing and that is not beneficial to your bottom line.

Advertising is a knowledge of marketing and requires experience. Anyone can post a list, but knowing what is of interest to buyers is the trademark of an experienced estate sale company.

Support The US Economy And Buy American At Estate Sales

Support the US economy and buy at American estate sales. These sales are run by American small businesses. Their staffs as well as the liquidators spend their dollars here in America. Although many household items may have been made overseas, buying it from estate sale companies supports our small business owners and the people that work for them.

Several articles have been published lately about estate sales and all the items the reporters have said are selling. These articles are based on interviews with a few liquidators and a few auction companies.

With 15,000 plus estate sale companies across the United States and more companies forming everyday, the interviews of a few do not speak to the majority.

Yes, there may be some areas where estate liquidations aren’t producing the results hoped for, but there could be several reasons for this, including the number of estate sale companies in the area.

We encourage estate sale companies to remind their buyers to buy American. After the recent election where millions of Americans wanted jobs brought back to the United States here is your opportunity.

2017 Welcomes New Estate Sales

2017 has arrived and with it more estate sales.

The weather is the concern for most estate liquidators in winter. The southern states rarely have concerns, but states like Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota and winter weather states plan accordingly.

These plans usually include alternate dates, who’s in charge of plowing the driveway and salting the sidewalks and parking restrictions.

Northern estate sale companies have a lot to consider when scheduling winter estate sales.
