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.

Black Friday For Retailers Is A Week Away, But Not For Estate Sales

Slide1Black Friday sales are a week from today. Retailers use this as a marketing ploy to bring buyers out for a limited number of deals and hopefully impulse buying.

Estate sale companies empowered and enlightened with marketing know how conduct sales every week, and most have a schedule of sale days. Their job is to sell out the property. Full price day one, and then depending on the liquidator lowering prices as each day of the sale proceeds.

When marketing think ahead of the curve, have shopping bags with your company logo or name on them, provide some packing paper (unprinted news print), if you have large valuable items have some bows to hand to those buyers, a business card to include with each receipt, possibly a giveaway (a magnet for the refrigerator or small calendar etc.) as a handout.

Present buyers with a reason to remember you and want to attend your future sales and remind them that every week thousands of Black Friday sales take place at estate sales.

Black Friday Sales Have Started, But Sales At Estate Sales Are Every Week

Yesterday as a walked around a Best Buy I was listening to salespeople speaking about their upcoming bargains on Black Friday. With just 14 days to go some stores are already selling items with market downs.

Are you on a budget? Do you have a large family to buy for? Then why wait for retailers, the masses, and possibly staying up all night when you can shop and save every weekend at an estate sale.

Let’s look at what’s selling this week at estate sales.
