Definition of Estate Sales:
Estate sales can consist of everything in the household of a deceased or living family member from furniture, clothing, kitchen goods, automobiles, tools to left over cleaning supplies under the kitchen sink. Depending on the size of the home and the amount or variety of its contents, it’s best to consult a certified appraiser or hire professionals to ensure your sale runs smoothly and is profitable.
Why do you need an Estate Sale Professional?
Estate Sales are generally very complex and involve a lot of planning, organization and background knowledge. Each sale is different, and each sale is like running a different company, because there’s a different house, setting, clientele and inventory.
Every professional service provider has a different approach to the selling process so be sure you familiarize yourself with a couple of different companies and always ask for testimonials or letters of recommendation. Good referrals can come from your Attorney, CPA or Realtor. Most Estate Sale Companies offer the initial consultation for free and charge a commission based on the size of the project.
