Estate Sales Help – What’s Important To You?

typewriter logoIt’s Monday and one week until the 2014 Estate Sale Conference in Memphis.

Last week we covered two important news items for the world of estate sales. The discovery of Marvin Gaye’s 1960’s Passport in a record album sold for 50 cents and the story of a San Antonio, TX estate sale company reportedly not paying sellers and bouncing checks by a Texas TV station making Google Alerts.

Doing our due diligence on the San Antonio story we followed up by looking further into the news about the estate sale company. Whenever an estate sale company receives such negative press Estate Sales News investigates to ascertain more information. We can say that the estate sale company is currently not listed on any of the major estate sale listing sites.

When you are choosing an estate sale company investigate through the Internet, BBB, and any other means at your disposal. If you know a local Realtor make a phone call. They usually have the finger on the pulse of what’s happening locally and may even be able to recommend an estate sale company.  Even with a recommendation continue researching the company. When it is time for the face to face interview you want to feel as confident as possible that the estate sale companies you are opening your door to are going to have your best interest. Remember though that this is also how they make their living so they are looking for your business. If you have recently suffered the loss of a loved one you may want to have a friend or someone you know with you for their presentation. Emotions can overwhelm you and once your choice is made hopefully you will feel satisfied and the company chosen will result in a successful sale without misunderstandings.
