How to Assess the Benefits of an Estate Sale – Part 4

part 4 of 4

When preparing for an estate sale, don’t count on everything selling.The level of “sell-through” is largely driven by what’s for sale, but even more by your choice of service provider. Good estate sales companies have a strong following and get a better percentage of the value and contents sold. Your estate sales company should be responsible, if that’s what you want, for clearing unsold items to charity and trash as appropriate.When they’re done, the house should be empty and broom swept.

Another option is sending your items to auction.This alternative is often suitable when items are extremely high-end, there is not enough volume or value to warrant an on-premises estate sale, or in situations where speed of removal from the property is a priority.
