You might wonder why folks decide to have an estate sale. Well, the most common reason is that people are finding that their offspring and relatives do not really want what they consider to be treasures, heirlooms or just beautiful things that no one has space for these days.
Here is an article from the New York TImes that describes that dilemma. Perhaps it will shed some light for you if you are facing the decision of what to do with your "stuff" or the "stuff" from an estate you are handling.
There are many types of community and private sales these days. There are yard sales, garage sales, tag sales. You'll find pop-up sales, online sales and auctions. But an estate sale is different. We like to think it is special.
Everyone has an estate. It is composed of everything you own and possess. It includes everything from heirlooms to kitchen pots and pans. We can sell anything and everything which is why we offer a free consultation so you can make an informed decision as to how to dispose of both cherished and mundane items.
Because these sales generally include the entire household, it is something more than a yard or garage sale. Those are for getting rid of clutter, etc. In an estate sale, we work to be an event for both the estate sale enthusiast and those selling to downsize, liquidate or move.
One of your best resources for finding out about estate sales is EstateSales.net. We use them in addition to our private email list, social media and word of mouth. Here is an article the folks at EstateSales.net wrote that pretty much explains it all: What is An Estate Sale?
