Shopping Estate Sales For Summer Needs

July 4th weekend is only four weeks away and now is the time for shopping estate sales for your summer needs. It is also the time if you are an estate sale company to feature those summer items that shoppers are looking for especially in the summer time.

Items for camping, hiking, and even boats can be found at estate sales. Great items to feature for buyers.

This time of year is a excellent time to shop for beach or large bath towels, patio sets, picnic baskets, swim suits, and summer clothing, pool items such as rafts or tubes.

Do you garden? This is the time of year many sellers downsizing will be selling off lawn equipment and tools.

This is a great time to look for extra dishes, cutlery, bowls and platters, and all those plastic storage containers for leftovers.

For those that like to grill this is another opportunity to shop at moving sales. Most movers don’t include a grill. You might find the grilling tools as well.

Whatever you need this summer, save over retail and shop at your local estate sales. Save your $$$ for vacation or other fun or needed times.

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.

Waiting For Discounts At Estate Sales May Cost You

Every weekend thousands of estate sales take place across this country and most offer contents priced well below retailers.

Consider that the two day estate sale has now become in many cases a three or four day sale to facilitate selling off the entire contents of the property and allows for discounting at a certain point.

Each estate sale company has a different policy about discounts or price reductions. Most estate sale companies will not offer discounts on day one. The sale is just beginning. Usually by day two they will offer some discount either on all or a part of the contents they are charged with selling. By day three the discounts may become greater. If the estate sale goes into a fourth day the discounts are usually quite significant.

Considering this information, when you see an item you are interested in acquiring, make the purchase. You may be making a mistake if you choose to wait for it to be discounted. The prices of items estate sales are already below what you pay at a retailer. It becomes a gamble to wait on the possibility of a discount, return another day and find the piece you wanted to purchase sold on day one.
