Benefits of an Estate Sale:
Estate sales create a tremendous volume of buyers, demand a higher price point and more items are sold. The extra money an experienced agent can realize from just a few items priced right can sometimes pay the entire commission charged for the sale.
If the home is for sale, your Realtor may leave information at the check out desk for potential buyer review. In addition, we will place the price of the home in all of our advertising, including our ad featured in the Erie Times News both Saturday & Sunday.
Estate Sale / Tag Sale:
Estate Sales provide profitable results when downsizing. DO NOT throw anything away until we assess the situation. Buyers want to see a wide variety of items on sale day. The most successful sales include a mix of furniture and bric-a-brac, lower to higher priced items.
Prior to the Sale:
Organize the home (removing trash/debris prior to the sale), Cleaning, Pricing (research collectible & antique items to establish fair market value, clearly priced). Pricing the merchandise involves many factors. A good estate liquidator relies on an extensive reference library of antique and collectibles price guides, auction records, on-line reference sites and catalogues. As an agent we must consider desirability, quantity, quality, condition and location in arriving at a price.
Signage - Posting of signs on premise and local roadways.
All family heirlooms and personal items must be removed from the home prior to sale preparation.
Staging/Display - Items that are presented in a neat, eye-pleasing way will appeal to buyers and receive higher prices than a garage sale. We will provide tables, linens and display cases for small items insuring security.
Staging your home during an Estate Sale brings additional foot traffic! This helps to sell the home.
Website - Date, time, location (including map quest) with partial description and pictures of items for sale. Online -Direct Mail list to active client base, Newspaper - Various local area print, and Craigslist.
