Category Archives: Where to Find Estate Sales Companies
Finding and hiring an estate sale company is becoming more involved as the number of estate sale companies continue to grow.
To find companies you can ask your attorney, ask your Realtor, look on estate sale company listing websites and look at estate sale companies who have memberships with estate sale associations and societies.
If you are asking a Realtor and they give you a recommendation ask them if they have any type of working relationship with them. Do they receive a referral fee? Your best interest is served when a real estate company refers you simply because they are familiar with your work and ethics and believe you can best handle the job for their clients.
If you are looking on estate sale listing websites, remember all these sites are paid by the companies on them and in most instances the listing company will provide several names of companies listed with them in your area. They do not have personal or direct knowledge of these companies.
Your attorney may be able to provide a recommendation based on previous experience with a liquidation company.
When you are trying to find an estate sale company, be sure to check for reviews online as well. Toss out the frivolous or silly ones (there are many of those) and be concerned with those who truly question business practices. If you are still interested in the estate sale company speak with them. Ask them about the review and what their side was.
Using several sources and your own research is the best way to find and hire an estate sale company.
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.
Our southern states and southwest estate liquidators are more fortunate.
Wherever you live please check with the estate sale listing websites to learn what contingency plans are available.
This year will see changes and additions to the estate liquidation business.
Many estate sale companies took time off over the holidays to rest their staff and themselves.
EstateSalesNews.com will be reporting on what’s new, important, affects buyers, sellers and estate sale companies.
From EstateSalesNews.com we welcome you all to the new estate sale season. Hello 2017.
Recently as I have traveled, so many people have chatted about how the holidays stressed them out shopping in a retail store with lines, coupons, and all the craziness that goes with it.
Every opportunity I have had I suggest shopping at an estate sale. Explaining that you not only save dollars. You avoid coupons, check out lines with often grumpy check out clerks exhausted by long hours and low pay.
Estate sale staff choose to work long and hard, enjoy serving customers and they want you to leave happy so you’ll keep shopping at their estate sales.
Estate sale companies are charged with selling the items in their locations. They can’t afford keeping stock. Their business is to sell and over a period of days sell off as much as possible. Some choose by discounting and others by looking at offers. Keep in mind this is not usually the practice on the first day, but on the days that follow.
From holiday decorations for Hannukah or Christmas to unique and special gifts estate sales have so much to offer buyers.
If you have put off your Christmas shopping check out the links below to find estate sales selling everything from A-Z. You’ll come out smiling.
20 days to Christmas and Hannukah if you have been shopping for those special people in your life while wait to receive the item by mail, or get a note that says it is back ordered.
Estate sales start every Thursday or Friday and offer and varied array of items, old, new, vintage and slightly used. They also offer a selection that can surpass what you will find in the store or online at a fraction of the cost.
NOW is the time to look at these websites and find the sales nearest you and get your holiday shopping done expeditiously. Just buy, save $$$ and wrap. Done!
Check out these sites and please when you visit estate sales let them know you read EstateSalesNews.com
Estate sales are Black Friday opportunities every weekend.
Yesterday on the news they were talking about Black Friday shopping. The Friday after Thanksgiving is the biggest shopping day of the year for most retailers. Many stores and online retailers are already offering significant discounts. This may reduce the number of people shopping retail on Black Friday.
People wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday to buy for themselves and Christmas.
Another weekend of estate sales starts today. Opportunities for buyers are at estate sales every weekend.
Why pay retail when you can pay estate sale prices which are significantly below retail prices?
Now is the time to shop for your Thanksgiving needs and Christmas gifts. From flat screen TVs to brand new clothes with the price tags still on.

Estate sale companies are using social media advertising more and more.
Reaching broader targeted audiences while controlling costs and not be in direct competition with other estate sales makes social media perfect for estate sale companies. Social media advertising is playing a key roll in advertising and expanding the reach of estate sale companies.
Facebook and Instagram are seeing the largest increases in use.
Estate sale companies can use Instagram for free, and boosting a post on Facebook can cost whatever an estate sale company wants to pay. An estate liquidator can also target their audience.
Estate sale companies still use estate sale advertising websites, however, as competition continues to grow they are looking to new outlets to reach audiences.
You will need to be a member of Facebook and Instagram, however, it is free. If you choose you can receive only notifications from estate sale companies in your area. You can put a “like” on the page for the estate sale company or companies you follow.
Facebook has the largest audience and targeting audiences can include people who like vintage, antiques, collectors, etc.
Instagram showcases photos without them competing with the photos of other estate sale companies.
Twitter also is a social media tool, but isn’t used as much as Facebook and Instagram.
Check out these social media websites today. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas are rapidly approaching. If you love estate sales and shop weekly don’t miss out. A great time to shop at estate sales.
It’s estate sales Friday. There are many estate sales across the country.
East coast to west coast, north to south estate sales are happening by the thousands.
High end estate sales, hoarder sales, estate sales with collections, privately listed estate sales.
If you are looking for an estate sale company this is a great weekend to go out and visit estate sales in your area.
Check out the way they handle entering the sale. How does the estate sale appear. Is it staged well? Are signs posted about all sales final, no returns, forms of payments accepted, security and more?
Look at the way items are priced and tagged. Did they use tags, adhesive tape, stickers and what type of items were they placed on. Ephemera especially should be carefully tagged (best in a plastic bag) and then a sticker on the bag so no damage to the item.
It is also time to think about what you might need for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. Now is a great time to start shopping for dishes, glassware, flatware, decorations etc.
A reminder – PLEASE read the terms, conditions, and descriptions of each estate sale on the various advertising websites. Being empowered with knowledge before attending an estate sale is very important for many reasons.
Bring you estate sale kit with you, including flashlight, bags and boxes, wrapping, water and a loop or magnifying glass..
Be sure to check out each one of these estate sale advertising websites. Many estate liquidators only use one advertising website. Don’t forget to check out Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too.
