We have found that families who try to hold their own estate sales lose a lot of money on the value of the contents. There are many items people think are junk, but are actually rare or collectible. These items end up getting sold for pennies on the dollar, donated, or thrown away; while many ordinary items that were priced too high will be left over at the end. We have an intimate knowledge of the psychology of pricing and selling in these situations.
When we hold your sale, we research values, advertise many different ways, invite private collectors and antique dealers, while doing all the labor for you. If the contents of the estate have reasonably good value, even with our commission, you will make more money than you would have doing all the work yourself.
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SIT BACK AND COLLECT MONEY WHEN WE HAVE FINISHED!!
