Estate Sales: Are you Getting a Fair Price for Your Items?

DSC06517There is a lot that goes into planning an estate sale, which is why you need to decide if this is the best solution for you, your family, and the items you want to liquidate.

As you move forward with the planning process, you’re sure to ask yourself this question: what’s the best strategy to ensure that I receive a fair price for each item?

In other words, you don’t want to have an estate sale to simply “get rid of stuff.” Instead, you’re doing so with the idea of making money along the way.

While you have the right to price your items however you best see fit, keep this in mind: a professional estate planning company can step in and handle all of this for you.

For example, at Four Sales we have a team of pricing professionals who can help you establish a fair sales price for each item. This ensures that you get as much money as possible, without chasing buyers away.

Pricing is based on many factors, such as the item itself, the condition, the market, and comparisons to recent sales.
