Baby Boomers Need Estate Sale Companies On ThrowBack Thursday

Slide1A friend posted an article on Facebook that appeared in the Washington Post on March 27th written by Jura Koncius in the Home and Garden section. The article was titled Stuff it: Millennials nix their parents’ treasures. Here is the link to the complete article

Today as ThrowBack Thursday it seemed appropriate to discuss what is taking place with baby boomers downsizing and moving across the country and this article and my friends’ comments about her own family and dilemna along with the 930 comments that were on the internet WAPO.ST  is a testament to what the baby boomer generation faces.

The boomer generation is the largest group of individuals to date. The amount of “stuff” that we have collected is larger than any other generation. Many of us inherited our parents and grandparents possessions and with the monetary success that many baby boomers have enjoyed they used their money to purchase and fill their homes with furniture, art, household items, collectibles and just about anything you could think of.  The job of downsizing has become a burden. Especially when the younger generations have purchased their own belongings, want different styles and are unaware of the value of many of your possessions in your home. The minimalist movement has also had an effect.

With millennials lack of interest in their parents possessions this is the time to find and hire an estate sale company or estate liquidator. They understand the plight of baby boomers and understand the task of preparing and selling their personal property. Estate sale companies are aware of the thousands of estate sales that are required and taking place weekly to assist this on the move generation.

What is important is finding an estate sale company that can accomplish the task in a professional manner with honesty and integrity. Knowing what to ask and expect from an estate liquidator is vital and no one source can guarantee you that the choice you make will be the right one.  Following on Judy Martin’s article about “Why Bother To Research” the same principle applies to making a knowledgeable decision that requires you to do your own due diligence (research) as well as using the resources of others to choose an estate sale company to place your trust and confidence in to sell your personal property.

Before Closets We Had Armoires – Find Them At Estate Sales ThrowBack Thursday

Europe still uses armoires, but in the United States we replaced armoires in homes built in the mid-20th century and today with closets, however, you can still find the antique armoires at estate sales or buy a new one (please note the quality probably won’t be the same). The great news is that most of the antique armoires are made to come apart making them portable.

Many bed and breakfast establishments still use them, especially if they are in a home that was not built with closets (Victorian era particularly).

Our ThrowBack Thursday here on EstateSalesNews.com is the armoire.

Advertising Estate Sales – Not All Estate Sale Companies Have A Website

Recently Estate Sales News had the opportunity to speak with a very successful facebook-logoestate sale company that does not have a website, but is successful through their knowledge and navigation of social media and an email list of customers known to them.

The ability to navigate the social media highway is especially important if you do not have a website as an estate sale company. We are not suggesting you do not need a website, only that an estate liquidator can be successful (depending on their social media knowledge and ability) without one.

The expertise to reach and attract buyers, and potential sellers is key to financial success.

Knowledge and ability to market your brand and the contents you are charged with selling is an advertising accomplishment that shows not only experience, but marketing talent. It also helps to give a company an opportunity to stay ahead of their competition.

Facebook and Twitter become your focal points. Facebook has an extensive reach and creating a photo album you share of a sale can bring in new buyers as well as those that follow you, increasing your customer base while permitting you a space between you and your competition. If you are using Facebook, be sure to post and describe photos and follow your posts on a regular daily basis. It is also important to have a business Facebook page that is not your personal page. You can remind your buyers at each and every sale to follow you on Facebook or Twitter for upcoming sales and photos either with signs, business cards or any combination that provides the address where to find your company. Estate sale listing websites remind buyers with every email about sales in there area to follow them on Facebook, showcasing their marketing at it’s best.

You can accept buyers signing for your own email list for upcoming sales & news of interest.

twitter logoUsing Twitter to say in 140 characters or less tidbits of interest about your company, your sales, and any other information you want to share with the public is also an advertising highway to drive interest to your sales and your company. Keep it interesting. Include a photo.

Using estate sale listing websites with their broad audiences, visibility on page one of Google, and thousands of clicks each day is a necessity for almost all, but be sure on your page to remind your audience that they can find you on Facebook and Twitter and provide the address or link for them.

Sellers this information is of great importance to you. The right company is the one you have done your due diligence with and will market your sale to optimize it’s potential return.

Two years ago today we started publishing EstateSalesNews.com.  This online news magazine and resource has continued to evolve and over the next several weeks we will be introducing new and we hope exciting additions.

Judy is a director of the International Society of Appraisers, ISA. Julie is also the director and owner of the American Society of Estate Liquidators).

Estate Sales News has traveled to California, Michigan, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, Nevada, Missouri, and Florida to name a few of the states we have spent time in covering news worthy estate sales.

We attended and reported on two Estate Sale Conferences and we spoke about estate sale contracts at the 2014 conference.  We went to the headquarters of EstateSales.NET in Jackson, MO, interviewing Dan and Micky McQuade, the founders and owners.

We have had guest articles from Lofty, (an online auction site), CRTS (Certified Relocation Transition Specialists), Lela of TrashFindRedesigned  (turning estate sale and other finds into great repurposed items). We hope we haven’t left anyone unmentioned.

We would also like to thank our advertisers who have supported us. Please support them if you are part of our audience.

Our goal two years ago was to inform and provide a resource for estate sale sellers, buyers, and estate sale companies. We have and continue to talk about how to choose an estate sale company, estate sale tips, estate sale contracts, staging the sale, estate sale etiquette, pricing, what is an estate sale, dealing with the uncomfortable moments that can occur with sellers or buyers, rare or unique finds and more.

Entering our third year we will continue to present information to keep you informed on the wide world of estate sales.

Thanks for being part of our history and we look forward to continuing the future with you.
