Estate Sales Summertime Review What’s Hot And Behavior

It is time for an estate sales summertime review of what’s hot and behavior.

Let us start with what’s hot in estate sales.

Recurring themes are fishing and hunting items, Pyrex (seems to be selling everywhere), military items and linens. Tools, mid-century decorative items, wood working items. Pyrex appears to be one of the hottest sellers.

Other hot sellers include good gold jewelry, great costume jewelry, purses, perfumes and inexpensive holiday decor.

The area of the country also helps determine what are hot sellers.

Behavior at summer estate sales is also hot.

Summer Time Estate Sales Are Everywhere

Summer time estate sales are everywhere.

Estate sale companies have extra concerns with summer estate sales.

If the property is not air conditioned with the high heat in some parts of the United States keeping customers and staff comfortable is important. Shoppers at estate sales will linger and shop more if they are not suffering from intense heat. The estate sale company staff will have more stamina when they are not working in a stuffy, hot environment.

Most estate sale companies will try to bring in fans to circulate the air if the property is not air conditioned. Some estate liquidators will even provide small bottles of water for their customers.

This is also a great time to buy window air conditioners. They are quick sellers at this time of the year. If purchasing one ask to have it plugged in to see if it works, but remember that the majority of estate sale companies sell items “as is”, but if you are looking to stick to a budget this is a good way to shop.

Patio furniture, garden tools, portable pools, swing sets, grills, and potted plants are also in summer estate sales. This is the season for downsizing, moving, and buying new.

If you are attending estate sales in the heat take water with you in your vehicle.

Some areas of the country are seeing severe downpours and heavy rain. A towel and an extra pair of shoes should be in your transport along with listening to the weather in case you need to detour around a flooded road.

The summer season of estate sales, like winter has weather considerations. Being prepared will make you a better and prepared shopper.

Check out these websites for estate sales in your area and let the estate sale company know you read EstateSalesNews.com. Happy shopping.

Estate Sales Advertising Without Pictures Of Items For Sale

Estate sales that advertise items without showing pictures certainly is disturbing to buyers and sellers.

Looking at estate sales and searching for items is a regular practice. What is disturbing is the written advertising includes items (many larger), but no photos are on the estate sale advertising listing website.

We were looking today for vintage appliances and found one estate sale advertising a galvanized tub, but no photos were included. Advertising vintage items with no photos of a vintage tub, yet a photo of a walke. This is not good advertising.

It is vital to a seller and to attract buyers that items of serious interest have photos on websites that advertise estate sales.

Many estate sale advertising listing websites limit the number of photos or an additional charge is incurred. This should be taken into account by the estate sale company when deciding on their costs.

Advertising items of interest in an estate sale, however, should have photos on advertising websites unless it is a security situation.

Sellers, if you are looking for an estate sale company ask to see their online advertising. Ask how they decide what is and isn’t important. Discuss what items of interest to buyers are in your sale and would they feature photos of them.

Searching for items of serious interest that are included in the listing section of the sale without a photo on the website page is not good marketing and that is not beneficial to your bottom line.

Advertising is a knowledge of marketing and requires experience. Anyone can post a list, but knowing what is of interest to buyers is the trademark of an experienced estate sale company.

Support The US Economy And Buy American At Estate Sales

Support the US economy and buy at American estate sales. These sales are run by American small businesses. Their staffs as well as the liquidators spend their dollars here in America. Although many household items may have been made overseas, buying it from estate sale companies supports our small business owners and the people that work for them.

Several articles have been published lately about estate sales and all the items the reporters have said are selling. These articles are based on interviews with a few liquidators and a few auction companies.

With 15,000 plus estate sale companies across the United States and more companies forming everyday, the interviews of a few do not speak to the majority.

Yes, there may be some areas where estate liquidations aren’t producing the results hoped for, but there could be several reasons for this, including the number of estate sale companies in the area.

We encourage estate sale companies to remind their buyers to buy American. After the recent election where millions of Americans wanted jobs brought back to the United States here is your opportunity.
