Is It An Estate Sale, Moving Sale, or Tag Sale?

questions and answersThe term estate sale has become very generic for any kind of liquidation involving personal contents.

There are differences although the lines have become somewhat blurred. . An estate sale is for a deceased person and that usually means that everything in the estate sale must be sold by the end of the sale. The estate heir(s), executors(s) or attorney usually want the property cleaned out by the end of the sale.

A moving sale is usually required by sellers who are downsizing or relocating and may or may not sell all the items in the property and who may want to discuss some price minimums on some items.  This isn’t always the case, but may be.

A tag sale can be a moving sale or estate sale. In many parts of the country because the items for sale in the house are tagged they call it a tag sale.

So as we approach the third weekend of 2014 are you attending an estate sale, moving sale or tag sale? Keep in mind that the majority of liquidation companies have adopted the term estate sale not only for their sales, but as part of their company names. In 10 years times have changed and the manner in which liquidations take place keeps evolving.

1200 doll collection in Florida estate sale on Fox, NBC and CNN television

WFLA-TV News Channel 8

Full House Liquidation is conducting an estate sale with over 1200 dolls for 3 days next weekend, August, 16, 17, 18 and the following weekend, August, 23, 24, and 25 in Weeki Wachee, Florida.

Estate Sales News conducted an interview with the owner of Full House Liquidation Danny Triplett on Monday. Danny told us that he started in business 4 years ago when a relative who was a Realtor asked him if he could help sell off the contents of a clients home. ” I had not done this before, but thought I could and after successfully emptying the house at the estate sale the calls from other Realtors needing this same service kept coming” he said. “Now my business is mostly by referrals from previous clients. I do advertise on EstateSales.net and estatesales.org, but I am getting more calls than I can work with so I refer some out” Danny told Estate Sales News. We asked him how he got this huge doll collection sale. “We were doing an estate sale in a 10,000 sq. ft. mansion and the family came to see us working” he told us. Danny said that it has taken about 5 weeks to prepare this sale because of the enormous amount of dolls (many requiring research for history and value) along with the multitude of other collectibles and household items and proper staging. Most of his sales have one police officer on site, however, because of the tremendous nationwide television and newspaper coverage along with a full staff he will have two police officers on site for each day of the sale.

We have also created a board on our Pinterest page for this sale. Full House Liquidation site

Again L.A. Estate Services estate sale – jewelry, gemstones, everywhere

 

Estate Sales News visited Dan Jordan and Danna McCallum of Again L.A Estate Services in Los Angeles to report on their upcoming sale for a woman named Belle whose husband was a jeweler/gemologist for over 50 years. In my 25 plus years in the estate liquidation business I have never seen anything the likes of this. Because of the massiveness of the sale and it is spread over 2 levels of the home we split the video.

Dan told me he had been in the business about 15 years and the estate sales business was an off shoot of his antique shop in Silver Lake. He started doing more estate sales and did not have time to buy antiques for his shop along with a troubled economy it pushed him into doing estate sales. Danna had been working with another man named Al who retired and having known each other for some years and occasionally working together they became partners. Danna has over 20 years of experience working estate sales.

Dan said “we do not target dealers and haven’t since day one of our partnership. Our market is the collector, young people furnishing their homes and the general public. Our obligation is to get the most for our client. We try to make sure the homes are empty so our sales run over a multi day period. We start with day one at full price and have a set discount structure that we follow, 20%, 30%, 50% and sometimes in large homes or estates the last day is 75%. We want to clear out the house and maximize.” Dan said “we price every single thing in the house, something Danna brought to the partnership and I have embraced. This way no surprises at check out. Everyone knows what to expect”. We have an extensive email list by invitation only so good behavior counts.
