Just in case you aren’t convinced, here are a few key reasons to Hire an Estate Sale Company:
Marketing Power and Connections
One huge advantage of working with an estate sale company is getting access to their marketing methods. A bright sign on the corner just won’t cut it. The success of your estate sale depends upon the number of people that attend. Many estate sale companies have a dedicated following of buyers that may provide an instant market for your sale. Remember the more money your estate makes, the more money your estate sale professional makes, so the estate sale pros will use all the marketing strategies at their disposal to ensure a good return.
Occasionally, items in an estate are so valuable or interesting that estate sale professionals will utilize their network of connections to find the right buyer for the item, including auction houses. An estate sale professional knows the local collectors and dealers who may be interested in your items and will use those connections to get the maximum value out of your estate.
Less Stress for a Difficult Time
Oftentimes this brings major stress as many people are coping with a significant life change, including moving, divorce, or the death of a loved one. Organizing an estate sale demands effort, know-how, and the most precious resource of all: time. Sorting, organizing, and pricing all of those memories bring an emotional toll, not to mention physical stress. Saving yourself the time, money, and emotional wear and tear can be worth the reasonable fee you pay to a professional company so their team will do the work for you.
Hosting an estate sale under any circumstance is a major undertaking. In most situations, you will make more money, with none of the work or emotional weight, by hiring a company. Estate sales are handled best by professionals with the tools and experience necessary to handle them. Most estate sale companies have handled hundreds of estates, sold tens of thousands of items, and have the expertise to quickly and efficiently maximize the value in the sale.
