EstateSalesNews.com Celebrates 3 Years Providing Estate Sales Information

It’s been three years since we launched this estate sale website magazine. We want to take a look back at the variety of topics we have covered.

We are also flattered that other websites have been developed to try to provide estate sale information. The difference for you our audience, we were in the estate sale business for 20 plus years. We do not charge you for all the information you find on our website. Others have been websites have been launched that either charge for information or are used to assist another existing website that estate sale companies (that estate sale companies already pay advertising fees for).

We started by discussing what is an estate sale. The definition has changed greatly over the years. We use to call them tag sales, house sales, moving sales, etc. Now for the most part we group them under one banner “estate sales”

When we launched there were about 9,000 estate sale companies. Today the growth continues and we have passed the 16,000 mark.

Estate Sale Contracts – Important Topics

EstateSalesNews.com has written about estate sale contracts in the past, but there are topics that deserve review.

One of them is the final payout to sellers of the net proceeds. Every estate sale contract should have a paragraph that addresses the specifics of how and when you, as a seller, will receive your net proceeds. It should lay out either the number of days (and this should be business days – excluding weekends and holidays preferably) or weeks, but certainly within 30 days of the conclusion of the sale.

Each estate sale company has a process they go through, however, 30 days should be the maximum and if you have a contract that is not specific, do not sign it. You will not have any guarantee of when or even if you will be paid. Estate sale companies that have good business ethics (99.9%) want you to know when you will be paid. They also want you to know how your will receive your proceeds, either by check, cashiers check, or in cash. When you review the contract with your prospective estate sale company look for the payout clause and ask questions if you have any. Estate sale companies want to have a good working relationship with you as a client. It benefits both of you.

Estate Sale Tips – Homeowners Insurance Needed

Homeowner insurance has always been necessary, but in today’s litigious world it is even more important.

Estate sales are being held by the thousands every weekend across the United States and protecting the homeowner and the estate sale company is necessary.

The large majority of estate sale companies have liability insurance, but that isn’t enough today. If an accident happens on the property whether in probate, foreclosure, just being sold or downsized it needs to have protection of its’ own.

Estate Sale Listings On Social Media Becoming Popular

Finding estate sales on social media is becoming very popular.

Many estate sale companies are using Facebook, reddit, Google+, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube to attract the attention of buyers.

Estate sale companies like to reach the broadest audience possible and social media is growing by leaps and bounds.

A posting of an estate sale that is boosted can reach a national audience without competing with the sale listed right below it. Many estate liquidators are finding they get more bang for their buck using social media. Most still list on estate sale advertising websites, however, getting their message out and showcasing what will be for sale is vital to the financial bottom line for sellers and estate sale companies.

When you attend an estate sale, ask them if they post their sales on social media? It may require you to join to be able to view, but with privacy controls you can still see your local estate liquidators and their sales without becoming fully engaged on the media.

The estate sale shown below was condcuted and completed, but appeared on Facebook, along with it’s original listing on EstateSale.com. You may even find that you will see some photos, or additional closeup photos on social media.
