Sure, you could handle an estate sale, liquidation, or auction on your own. But, hiring a professional service can make things a lot simpler for you. There are a lot of benefits to working with professionals during this process, here are just a few.
An estate buyout is something that only a professional service can do for you, and is one of the easiest ways to liquidate your home. Essentially, an estate buyout is a cash offer for the contents of your home. Even for the items that don’t hold any value. If you accept the cash offer, the company will come by within a week and clear out your home for you.
This is the fastest and easiest way to get the value of your home. It has a couple of advantages over estate sales and auctions. For example, after an auction or sale, you may still have items left over to deal with. An estate buyout doesn’t leave any unwanted items behind for you to deal with. Bad weather can impact your sale/auction. A rainy day can cost you hundreds in lost sales because fewer people will show up to your estate. In an auction, an item may sell for way less than it is really worth. With an estate buyout, you don’t have to worry about any of that.
One of the most obvious reasons is: saving time. Working with a professional will save you countless hours and headaches. Whether you’re going with an estate sale, liquidation, or auction, each process has a ton of steps associated with them. If you’ve never done one before it can be a daunting and time consuming process. When you have lots of things to consider and think about, a professional will be able to guide you through the processes and handle a lot of it for you.
If you want people to show up to your sale or auction, you’ll have to put a lot of effort into advertising. Without a lot of experience in advertising, that can be an intimidating process. But, a professional company can handle all the advertising for you.
A professional company will be able to get you a bigger profit for your items, for multiple reasons. With a solid advertising plan, a professional will be able to bring in more people, leading to more sales. Plus, a professional will be able to properly appraise items for their true value, the value they will sell at. If you’re appraising your items on your own, there is a chance you may list your items for less than they are really worth.
Clearing out the Home
When everything is done, a professional service will help you clean up afterwards. If any items are leftover from your estate sale or auction, they can help you get rid of them. Either by donating the items, or purchasing them from you.
After everything is done, if you want to sell your house as well, some professional services can help you take care of the house as well, making the entire process even easier for you.
These are just a few of the many reasons why working with a professional service to liquidate your home is one of the best choices you can make. But, if you’re not yet convinced, our free consultation can make the choice even clearer for you.
