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.

May 1st Graduations, Weddings, Moving & Estate Sales

May 1st has arrived and with it the season of graduations, weddings, and moving. Estate sales can be a major help with these events.

Looking for a graduation gift? Check out jewelry, designer handbags, shoes, wallets and other sought after high end items that are well below retail at estate sales.

Weddings and estate sales can be their own marriage. Estate sales are great sources for sterling flatware, holloware, china, crystal, high quality cookware, flat screen televisions, lighting and art. You can buy more or buy better items with what you save at estate sales.

The moving season is in full gear with baby boomers downsizing, generation X moving up and millenials creating their first residences. Moving can be challenging for any reason. Estate liquidators can help relieve some of the stress that accompanies these moves.

If you are looking for estate sales to shop at look at the websites listed below. Many estate sale companies do not list on all the websites. Check your area out on each site.

2017 Welcomes New Estate Sales

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.

Avoid The Hassle Of Retail Shopping With Estate Sales

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.

3 Weeks ToThanksgiving Estate Sales Black Friday Is Now

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.

Great sales can be found in most every state.

Estate Sales Friday

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.

Happy shopping and here is where you can find estate sales this weekend.

Reporting About Estate Sales – Quote Multiple Sources

Editorial, Carol Madden, Owner, Publisher, EstateSalesNews.com

Recently a reporter, Paul Sullivan of the New York Times wrote an article in wealth matters “It Pays To Be Wary When Hiring An Estate Sale Agent”.

This article was circulated on several internet sources about a family in Chicago, IL looking to sell the contents of the parents home in Beverly Hills, Michigan.

The article begins with the names of the individuals (the Davis Family) and their first hand experience with the dark side of estate sales, and includes this quoted “the fixture of weekend life in affluent suburban towns around the country”.

Your editor, as a former liquidator for 20 plus years in the estate sale industry can say without contradiction that estate sales take place in towns (affluent or not) in villages, and even the countryside all over America.

The article explains the problems encountered by the Davis family, however, it does not explain why only two sources quoted were chosen.
