An Over Collector – Hoarder Estate Sale With 1000’s Of Items

An enormous estate sale of an over collector in Chesterfield, MO starting on December 18th conducted by A New Beginnings Estate Sale. A that home has 1000’s of items, many of which were purchased within the last five years and still have the price tags on them begins. Over 300 throw pillows is just the beginning of what you will find at this hoarder sale.

Working with an over collector or as some call them a hoarder is challenging. If it isn’t someone who is deceased it will requires patience, emotional understanding, and some very basic physcology. Estate liquidators wear many hats for just this reason. Explaining how they will approach the enormous task and what has to be done is only the beginning of the estate liquidation process.

Estate sales with this type of volume require extra weeks and hours of work and many times extra staff. Many estate sale companies may increase their commission because of the volume of items, sorting, the extra staging, and pricing it requires, however, each company works differently.

With Christmas two weeks away, we wanted to present some of what buyers will find at this enormous sale. Click here for a link to this estate sale.
