Negotiating at an estate sale – etiquette goes along way

NegotiationMost estate sales companies will negotiate on goods at an estate sale, but rarely if ever on the first day of the sale and each company has it’s own policies.

If you are attending an estate sale and see an item of interest that you would like to purchase if the price was lower, ask the estate liquidator in charge if there is room to negotiate. If the answer is we don’t discount on the first day inquire what their policy is. Do they discount on the 2nd or 3rd day, except bids etc.
