Selecting an Estate Sale Company: What to Expect
Last week, we discussed how to make first contact with an estate sale company. From asking the right questions to browsing a company’s website, we provided details on how to get the process moving in the right direction.
This time around, let’s examine what to expect once you hire a company to manage your estate sale.
1. Full service. If you are going to hire a professional, you might as well get professional service. This means full service from beginning to end.
For example, you want a company that will help you dispose of any leftover items at the end of the sale. This could include donating the items to a local charity
2. Pricing your items. This may be the number one benefit of working with a professional estate sale company. You think you know what your items are worth, but an estate sale company knows what they are worth. When you price your items to sell, they will do just that.
3. Setting up the estate sale. A professional estate sale company knows how to setup your home for success. They know where to put your items, how to guide people through the home, and the best way to provide enough space to get around. You will be amazed at the way the home takes shape.
4. Running the estate sale from start to finish. This is not a garage sale. It is much more detailed and sophisticated than that. Your estate sale company will run the sale, from start to finish, which includes answering questions, taking payments, and much more. You don’t have to do anything except collect your money when everything is done.
5. Final details. Once the final person walks through the door, you can be rest assured that your company will know what to do next. This includes providing you with your share of the money, while also answering any lingering questions.
Note: a reputable estate sale company knows how to generate a high volume of traffic, ensuring that a large number of interested buyers visit your estate sale.
