Prepare For An Estate Sale

Prepare For An Estate Sale


If you’re planning to sell or auction the contents of an entire home, including personal belongings, art and jewelry, this is an estate sale. It’s common to hire specialists in the field of estate sales to oversee the sale. This is due to the size and time required to organize and manage a sale of this grandeur. Setting up and coordinating an estate sale without professionals is possible. Make sure to have reliable, honest people to help throughout the process, and have people who can be on guard for any possible theft.

During preparations for the sale, every item will need to be checked to determine whether it can be sold at the estate sale. This means going through every room, cupboard, drawer etc. in the house. Garages, basements and attics will also need to be checked. Have items clean and in good condition, selling will be easier. However, if some specialized items cannot be fixed, still include them in the sale.

Keep it organized

Catalogue and price each item. Estate sales are usually big, it’s important to be organized from the very beginning. Take photos and catalogue each item along with the asking price and specifications. Once an item has sold, make a note including the final sale price. When planning how to display everything, make sure buyers can move around comfortably. Small valuables, such as jewelry should be exhibited close to where purchases are made.
