We Prioritize You, From Estimate to Estate Sale
Professionalism- we show up with our best foot forward. Years of experience in the industry and customer service can assure you that we will be able to clearly communicate with you and the target audience for your sale. You can be confident that your items and estate will be carefully handled by skilled people. We will come on time during our meetings and we will make sure that your items are taken care of until the day your item has been sold.
Security- this is very important to us because we want to make sure all items are secured and theft is prevented. We have strategically placed the entrance/exit to make sure all items have been accounted for. We want you to feel secure that your items are in good hands.
Strategy- we know how to negotiate, not only with you but also to prospective buyers. Giving discounts can be good to acquire buyers and ensure that your sale will be sold at a fair price.
Sales options- there may be some items that will appeal to a specific group of audience. Some examples would be antique collectibles and rare items. These items can be sold online through auctions such as eBay. Placing these items in an online sale will allow more audience to consider the item and can most of the time result in faster and more desirable turn-out. Although we can be open to haggling and bidding, we can assure you that your estate or item will not be sold at a price that is below its worth. We will attract buyers by posting flyers on special items. We will include information such as item condition, price comparison, the age of the item, and other valuable information that can impact the cost of the sale. We can also put up a bidding box that people can use to place bids on items they can’t buy. If nobody buys it, we can negotiate with them after the sale.
Integrity- this is the core value we employ in our business. Honesty and integrity are the values we incorporate every time we deal with a client or a buyer. You can ask our previous clients about the honest service we rendered. We will have a complete inventory of your items along with the sale price and the proceeds, which will be given after 5-7 days of the close of your sale. From day one until the last day of our transaction, we will be transparent with our dealings.
Advertising- typically, estate sales company utilizes sites such as Craigslist, Facebook, local newspapers and classifieds, and emails. We do use these platforms, but we also take advantage of modern technology by advertising on estatesales.net, estatesales.com, and atgaragesale.com. Social media platforms such as Google, Twitter, and Instagram are also great for advertisement.
Timing- for most estate sale companies, they hold their sales on a weekday. However, we prefer doing it on a weekend because most people are at work and hold 9-5 day jobs on a weekday. That is why we recommend holding your estate sale on a Saturday or a Sunday. If this works for you, then we will gladly do it on a weekend, but if you prefer it done on a workday, we can also do it for you. You will have the final decision on this aspect, we will just give you recommendations.
Professional Photography- visuals are important to attract buyers, especially if you are going to post them online or in a written ad. We have professional photographers who will take photos of your items to post on our website. People will be more interested in buying an item or property that looks presentable and pleasing.
Straightforward Pricing- there is a number of pricing methods available. We can discuss this in our initial meeting and you can decide which one best fits your needs.
What is an Estate Sale?
An Estate Sale, which is also known as a Tag Sale in other parts of the U.S., is the process of liquidating a family’s property or items. They are more than the typical yard or garage sales. Estate Sales usually happen when the family is moving, downsizing, or because of a divorce, bankruptcy, or death. The home will be opened to the public to get a chance to buy items that are on sale. Estate Auctions, on the other hand, is where everything is auctioned instead of having a fixed price
There can be a number of ways to run an Estate Sale. You can mark the item “sold” if it is too large for you to carry with you. Some items can be opened for bids if no one bought it for its market price. However, you might lose your chance of buying the item if anyone buys it for its marked price before the bidding starts. Bidding usually happens by the end of sale.
Most estate sale companies, they employ the First Come, First Served method. People will usually line up at the entrance of the home. People are very much familiar with this method, but there are still some who feel entitled to the first spot.
In addition, Estate Sale Etiquette is also a thing. For other companies, they use a Number System, and they typically have special rules and considerations regarding this policy, so make sure that you speak to them about their rules. For some companies, they use the Self Start Number System. However, this method can invite abuse and can be disorganized. Companies who use this method employ this with strict policies being considered.
Sign-up Sheets is virtually similar to self-start numbering. It can be as vulnerable to abuse self-start numbering, so be careful when using this method. Other companies let everyone line up and enter the sale, while others have limited access.
