July 4th Holiday And It’s Impact On Estate Sales

The July 4th Holiday and it’s impact on estate sales is usually only noticed by estate sale companies. Most estate liquidators take this time off to celebrate our Independence Day with family and friends as most Americans do.

Auction companies often hold holiday weekend auctions. Their audiences often differ from estate sale companies.

Estate sale followers and attendees usually shy away from major holiday weekends. Christmas, Easter, and July 4th especially. Time for family and friends.

Our 4th of July celebration gives the estate sale companies and their staffs an opportunity to enjoy to enjoy some needed rest time and join in the celebration.

As summer vacations begin, estate sale companies will be working harder to get the message out about their sales and what each weekend the public will find.

Marketing strategies change to accommodate the summer season. Social media for targeting their audience will be a key player in their advertising campaigns.

Summer Season For Estate Liquidations

The summer estate liquidations season has arrived. With so many estate sales being conducted If you need to hire an estate sale company, this is a good time to visit sales in your community.

Summer in most areas of the country also adds additional concerns for estate liquidators.

An estate liquidator in a hot and/or humid climate will need to consider ventilation in the property for keeping staff and customers comfortable and safe. It is a major reason that a provision in the estate sale contract provides that the seller keeps the electricity on. Buyers that are comfortable are less likely to dash out the door or only do a quick look in a hot and stuffy home. Even without air conditioning, fans can provide moving air making shopping a more enjoyable and fun experience.

Summer time can also bring sudden rain or thunderstorms. An estate sale company has to always plan ahead about what if any contents might be out in the open or under a pop up tent.

Many estate liquidators like to provide their check out areas just outside on a driveway under a pop up and if that is the case an alternative has to be carefully thought out ahead in case of threatening weather.

Estate sale companies also consider timing. June tends to have weddings and graduations, July has our Independence day celebration and the start of vacation for millions of Americans that continues through August, which is also usually the hottest month.

Summer is also moving time for those downsizing or relocating for employment. That makes the competition for buyers increase. The experienced estate sale company plans their marketing strategy well to draw shoppers in before their competition. Knowing all the various methods of advertising and using social media is a key factor.

June, July, and August is something most of us look forward to. For estate sale companies it is also a time to think more and work aggressively to achieve the best outcome an estate sale may have.
