Estate Sales Versus Overstock And Wayfair

Why buy at estate sales? With Overstock and Wayfair and the ability to order on line they offer the convenience of shopping from your couch. However, nothing compares to hands on.

Buying at an estate sale allows you to thoroughly look over the items you wish to purchase. It also allows you to measure for fit or size.

Kitchenware, dishes, glasses, and linens are available at most estate liquidations.

When you buy at an estate sale you take the item home that day in most cases. You also do not have the opportunity to return items, as sales are final. The ability to look over your purchases closely before buying does allow you to avoid regret later.

Garden tools, yard maintenance equipment, even potted plants can be purchased at estate sales.

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.
