WHY USE AN ESTATE SALE COMPANY
An Estate Sale is a way of liquidating the personal property of a estate. An estate sale is much more than a garage sale. Life events such death, downsizing, moving, divorce, and even bankruptcy can create the need for an estate sale. The property is opened to the public and anyone who shows up has the opportunity to purchase any item that is priced for sale.
Alpine Estate Sales Company can handle this huge task without being emotionally involved.
Estate Auctions are similar, but the items are auctioned instead of being marked with a selling price.
Estate Sales are run in several different ways. Typically the items are marked with a selling price, and if you want an item you pick it up and pay for it. If an item is too large to carry, you can have it Marked Sold.
Some companies will accept bids, but this process is difficult to monitor.
Another method for handling an estate sale is to make the marked price non-negotiable. Then, all prices are reduced 50% on the second day of the sale. This has proved to be very successful.
RULES FOR AN ESTATE SALE
Be courteous. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.
Do not bring children or pets into the estate sale property. There may be many breakable items that don’t mix well with them. And, the general rule is “you break it, you bought it”.
“First come, first served” is the order of the day.
