Reasons to Have an Estate Sale, Not a Garage Sale

estate saleIt is not uncommon for a person to believe that an estate sale and garage sale are one in the same. Once you learn more about each type of event, you will find that nothing could be further from the truth.

In most cases, an estate sale is a complete or near complete home. On the other hand, a garage sale is a compilation of unwanted items.

Here are several reasons why an estate sale is a better choice (most of the time):

1. Easier to organize, as you will have the help of a professional company every step of the way. The same cannot be said with a garage sale. Instead, you are in charge of every last detail, from product placement to receiving payments and much more. Are you ready for so much responsibility?

2. Professional guidance in regards to pricing. If you are planning any type of sale, it goes without saying that you want to sell each and every item for as much as possible. Your estate sale company can help you with this detail. You don’t want to underprice items, but at the same time you don’t want to ask too much. Finding a happy medium is a must.

3. Help with the crowds. What will you do if 500+ people show up at your home and you are the only person there? This can make for a very uncomfortable situation. An estate sale company knows what to expect and how to staff your event for success.

If the idea of an estate sale or garage sale has come to mind, let the three details above point you in the right direction. You may soon find yourself contacting us to discuss your options. And of course, we would love to help!
