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.

Once-pricey heirlooms losing their value from the Columbus Dispatch

Enjoy every bite off that heirloom china on Thanksgiving Day. But don’t bet your retirement on the cherished dinnerware; it’s probably not worth what you think. Evolving tastes, changing demographics and technology have conspired to reduce the value of china, crystal, furniture and other once-pricey heirlooms that have been handed down from generation to generation.

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.
