Vintage And Antique Post Cards – ThrowBack Thursday

They showcased towns, buildings, sports, advertising and more. Click here for a link to Collectors Weekly for a great overview of these highly collectible “time capsules”. You can find post cards like these at many estate sales and even auctions.

More estate sale listing websites are launching, offering everything from listings of estate sales, online auctions, auctions, and estate and auction companies. They are offering services with a variety of options including letting them help you find an estate sale company. These are good places to start, but there are other websites to be considered.

If you belong to social media of any kind; Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest or other websites use their search capabilities to see what companies and sales may be advertised on them.  A company LinkedIn page could provide information on your brand and services.  They have a broad reach and it demonstrates the advertising expertise and marketing knowledge needed for success, not only attracting sellers, but attracting buyers.

Estate Sales News has a Facebook page and if you belong to Facebook we welcome you to join our audience. You will also find us on Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.

Social media has millions of followers. You can find estate sale companies, estate sales, and groups with special interest, antiques, Mid-century modern, lighting, and many others.

Many estate sale companies don’t have their own websites and use Facebook to reach out across the country for buyers. Success can be attained in a variety of ways.

Whatever social media you use it’s one more tool for sellers, buyers, and estate sale companies.

Estate Sales Are Creating New Businesses – ThrowBack Thursday To 2000

It seems that every week we receive press releases or Google Alerts about new businesses being formed around “estate sales”.

From franchises for liquidators, to new estate sale listing websites, to associations and societies for estate  liquidators, and other businesses such as clean out companies, relocation services, there is an endless generation of businesses, not to mention the daily growth of more and more estate sale companies. These services and many others are being created for the growing number of baby boomers retiring and the desire to become an entrepreneur.

What started in the early 2000’s with one estate sale listing company and one small association created by a veteran liquidator that had written a code of ethics and online courses for becoming an estate liquidator, we now have explosive growth in the estate sale company business.

So many websites offer you the opportunity to locate an estate sale company through their website having researched these liquidators and signed a code of ethics or agreed to a list of good business practices.

All of this brings to the forefront the absolute need for you – the perspective seller, to do your due diligence. We are unaware of any company or group that has any authority other than to chastise and remove a company from their website and list. We encourage sellers to read and research through these various companies for estate liquidators, but the final choice and what you need should be based on conversations with prior clients of the individual estate sale company.

So Many Estate Sales, So Many Estate Sale Companies – Why?

For those that are avid fans or shoppers at estate sales the extraordinary numbers of estate liquidations has created a utopia.

This demand has been created by the millions of baby boomers moving, downsizing, and going into retirement. Estate sale companies have formed across the country, encouraged by the concept of being their own boss and what they perceive as the money to be made. This encouragement comes from a variety of sources, many of which profit from the creation of estate sale companies and liquidators. Where there were once four or five estate sale companies now there may be 100 to 200 in metropolitan areas.

Many shoppers at estate sales are looking for items to resell on such websites as eBay or Etsy. They may repurpose or redesign them (a good example would be what happens on the HGTV program Flea Market Flip).

The rare, unique, and highly collectible still sell, but then there is “the rest of the stuff”, general household, furnishings, lawn equipment, used cars etc. Selling these items isn’t as easy as it once was. Estate liquidators have to be savvy marketers and know where their buying base is. For many it comes from publicizing the sale on estate sale listing websites, Estatesale.com, EstateSales.Net, or EstateSales.org. However, with so many estate sale companies and sales, that may not be enough depending on their location. Facebook, Twitter, and email lists have become a great resource for reaching buyers.

Estate sales are great places to find everything from fine jewelry to laundry detergent. Save dollars, go green, and support your local economy.
