Shopping At Estate Sales In Person Or Online

Shopping estate sales online or in person. Which works for you?

There are some companies that have offered online estate sales. Two large national companies prefer selling this way. Another estate sale listing website has announced that it too will offer online estate sales starting next year. All this in a growing competition to attract buyers and estate sale companies.

How do you like to shop? Do you like to handle and inspect what you’re buying personally or do you trust online sales to include all the necessary photos and information to enable you to make a decision? It is similar in this way to online auctions. You rely on the company selling to provide accurate and complete descriptions.

Many large retailers sell online only, such as Overstock and Wayfair. Selling new items with warranties or return policies can offer security. Online estate sales will usually be used items and the return policy will depend on the estate sale company. Determining whether to buy at an on site estate sale or online estate sale really depends on your comfort zone.

Preventing Theft At Estate Sales

Preventing theft at estate sales is important as more people attend the sale.

Estate liquidators are hiring off duty policemen for security and safety for their estate sales.

Estate sale companies can use this security to ensure orderly entrance into the estate sale as well as monitor those exiting. The off duty police officer may ask to see your receipt. He or she may also ask to look at the contents of your bags or boxes.

Estate sale staff are monitoring the personal property entrusted into their care. If staff see someone trying to steal or change a price tag, they will report this to the owner of the estate sale company and the security person.

Many estate sale companies that have caught thieves have taken to posting their photos on Facebook to warn others and hopefully prevent further theft attempts. They hope the embarrassment of their photo will succeed when viewed by the general public.

Estate sale companies can prosecute anyone caught stealing. Many use video cameras to monitor their sales.

Estate liquidators are now limiting coats and in many cases preventing pocket books from being brought into the estate sale. In Florida it is not uncommon to see yard signs that clearly say no large bags or purses.

Estate Liquidators And Realtors Should Work Together

Baby boomers are on the move in droves and estate sales are tied closely to real estate sales. Estate liquidators and Realtors should work together.

Your Estate Sales News Editor has been a Realtor and estate liquidator. Both professions work for the seller. Both parties should determine what will be in the best interest of the seller and compromises will need to be made.

Realtors like to have a seller declutter for best results. Eliminating personal property that can be distracting for a buyer.

The estate liquidator doesn’t want the seller to eliminate anything until they have walked through the property to see what can be sold.

Estate sale companies and Realtors best serve the seller when they work together. Sitting down for a conversation about the long term outcome for the seller is beneficial.
