Planning an Estate Sale? Details you may be Overlooking

Omega ChronostopOver the years, we have helped many people make their way through the estate sale process with a high level of success.

While many people know what they are getting into with an estate sale, others are in for a surprise as they begin to consider their options, the steps they need to take, and the challenges they will be faced with along the way.

Here are three key details you may be overlooking when planning an estate sale:

1. What to sell, what to keep. Let’s face it: there will be items you don’t want to part with, items you have no problem selling, and items that you may be hanging onto for some odd reason.

At some point, preferably sooner rather than later, you must decide what you are going to sell.

2. Pricing. This is where the help of a professional estate sale company comes in handy. Do you know how to price items to sell? You don’t want to set prices so high that people are scared away. At the same time, you don’t want to sell so low that you are leaving money on the table.

3. Time commitment. If you are going to plan an estate sale you might as well do it the right way. This means opening your home to prospective buyers for multiple days. This improves your chance of more buyers, which improves the chance of selling every item.

If you don’t have any experience planning an estate sale, it doesn’t mean you should shy away from doing so. What it does mean is that you should focus on the details above, among others, to ensure that you have the proper knowledge. Along with this, don’t hesitate to contact us for additional advice and guidance.
