After all, without our help, you might be selling off precious collectibles for a fraction of their value! When it comes to the negotiation strategy it can come down to a lot of different factors, and personalities. You can find almost anything at an estate sale, which is why such a diverse group of people attend estate sales. Anyone from a reseller, collector, antique dealer, furniture flipper, interior designer, or those who just love a good deal, to name a few.

*You might be itching to start purging unwanted items early. Resist. Do not throw anything away! You might think something has no value, but you’ll be surprised what interests shoppers. And small prices on small items (or “smalls” as they’re called in the biz) add up. What people don’t realize is that, there are many people who frequent sales that just want "the other stuff."*
6. Post Sale Clean Up
You can expect 5% to 25% of your items to remain in the home after the estate sale. Think about how you would like the items handled and how much involvement you would like to have in the post sale process. To sum things up, just hire a professional so you don’t have to do extra work. We love what we do and we are good at it. So let us take it from here.
