Preparing for Your Estate SaleYou want your possessions to look their best on a date with the auction block. At a minimum, the home and every item included in the estate sale should be thoroughly cleaned. A clean item is a cared-for item, which increases its perceived value. It is immediately noticed and instantly appreciated. In some cases, you may also want to have damaged items repaired because this may increase the item’s value in the eyes of the bidders. It would be best to discuss this with the iStuffSellers appraisal team and experts who know the intricate details of the relevant jewelry, electronics, china, collectibles, etc. Whatever you do, you should never repair these items without the appropriate knowledge and expertise, as this may diminish their value significantly.
Marketing Your Estate SaleThe number of bidders who attend the sale will have a significant impact on the success of the sale. At iStuffSellers, we utilize many marketing techniques to attract the most crucial bidders possible. These are customized for each sale and can include printed brochures, emails, web postings, and other highly effective techniques. We also help our clients choose the best time to sell their items. Our extensive experience with estate sales makes it possible for us to analyze trends and maximize the sale’s potential simply by choosing the suitable date in the right season.
What Happens After the Estate Sale is Complete? You may have leftover possessions after the sale when the final check is cut. Our team can help you assess the value of these items so that you can claim the proper deduction. As an estate liquidator in Maryland, DC, and Virginia, we can buy these from you or include them in one of our off-site auctions. You can also choose to keep, store, or attempt to sell them on your own. Many clients choose to donate their unsold items to charity. This helps offset taxes and other expenses as you liquidate the estate.
Providing you with comprehensive, high-quality listing service is our top priority. So when you decide to sell your home or are just checking the equity position of your home in the market, let iStuffSellers get above the asking price for you.
