“Family Says Final Farewell To Their 1950’s Homestead” Estate Sale

Danny Triplett owner of Full House Liquidation spoke with EstateSalesNews.com and provided today’s headline “Family Says Final Farewell to Their 1950’s TIA-Adjacent Homestead”.

Here is an excerpt from Danny’s article.

“Full House Liquidation will be conducting an enormous farewell estate sale on the Jessen family’s TIA-adjacent property, coming up Sept.8th=11th at 5014 N. Hesperides St. in Tampa.

It’s located located adjacent to Air Cargo Rd, right up against Tampa International Airport. The family has been here since back in the 1950s when it was Drew Field.

Now as Drew Park, with mostly industrial type businesses, the family homestead is one of the last of an era, that will soon be gone.

As the family members passed away over the years, and others moved out of state, two of the brothers chose to stay on their family property for decades, and continued to live there together as bachelors up into their seventies.

Both were engineers, who enjoyed racing cars as a hobby. One was an architectural engineer for a local archtiectural on Howard Avenue and the other was a mechanical engineer for a big food processing company here in Florida.

Understanding The Estate Sale Process

Understanding the estate sale process is very important as the liquidation business continues to grow.

Estate sale companies cannot commit until they have seen everything you are selling. The company needs to decide if there is enough in the sale to make it profitable for them.

Estate liquidators have many expenses such as insurance, staff, supplies, security and the time needed to prepare the sale. Liquidators have to include their advertising costs to compete with the growing number of estate sales.

Sellers hiring an estate sale company should recognize that they have a multitude of expenses. Working to create a successful sale for you to the best of their ability requires knowledge and marketing experience.

Estate liquidators also need empathy in many cases for clients.

A strong estate sale contract that protects and explains the estate sale company obligations and the sellers obligations is very important in the process. Many estate sale companies have their contracts prepared by attorneys.

The estate sale company may have a membership in associations such as the NAOEL. These associations and societies charge a fee to join and a yearly fee for membership. They also provide education that they charge the estate liquidator for.

The estate sale company incurs the cost of excepting charge cards. Fees are accessed and each company decides whether to charge them to a seller or absorb them. This may be part of their commission. Each estate sale company is different.

Sellers should understand what is required to prepare and conduct a sale. Reviewing the estate sale process with any estate sale company you are interviewing is important to avoid future misunderstandings.

Why An Estate Sale Company Cancels Estate Sale!

Why an estate sale company cancels estate sale?

Sellers, these are reasons you need to know and understand.

A seller hires an estate sale company after performing their due diligence.  You should have chosen a professional company that you can place your trust and confidence in.

Today, many sellers fail to have this confidence and trust in their estate sale company. Why did you hire them? Did you check their references, how they research and price items and what security they have.

Showing up the day or night before an estate sale to “check” how the estate sale company did is inappropriate and may have the result of an estate sale company cancelling the sale.

An estate sale company is working for your best interest. If you have chosen the company following the guidelines for hiring an estate sale company let them do their job for you.

When a seller displays distrust in an estate sale company before the sale starts this causes a concern to the estate liquidator.

Checking prices established by the estate sale company is in appropriate. If you are concerned about pricing this should be discussed before signing the estate sale contract. Have an item you have a bottom line price on. Speak with the estate sale company before signing their contract.

An estate sale company cannot work for mistrusting sellers.

Estate Sale Commission Last Consideration!

The estate sale commission is your last consideration and here is why.

So many estate sale companies have come on line in the last three plus years competition has become fierce. Many new companies try to compete with a lower commission.

When looking to hire an estate sale company, the estate sale commission should not be what influences your decision. Consider the following before you even ask about the commission.

How long has the company been in business? How did the liquidator gain knowledge and experience to sell personal property contents?

Ask about the estate sale company staff and if they have experience.

Advertising is so important with so many estate sales. Ask where and how they advertise. Do they have a private email list of customers that they send to each week?

How do they conduct their set-up and staging.

Do they research for pricing and where do they look for information. eBay should not be the only answer. Experienced estate liquidators know where to research.
