What is the size and the value of your estate?
Perhaps your estate is not large enough for a professional estate sale company to run the sale. Most companies have a team of helpers and fixed expenses such as advertising, labor, pricing, preparation, credit card processing and clean up. An estate must be large enough for the company's percentage to offset their expenses and make a profit. How large is "large enough"? Every company is different but a ballpark minimum is $10,000 of sellable items.
- If your estate is large enough, hire the professionals. They'll do all the work and you should end up with more money than if you did it yourself!
A modest estate may or may not produce that amount of revenue. If the value is just not there, you may have to consider doing the sale yourself. You provide the labor. Do it yourself, but do it our way. We have a proven process for maximizing the value of an estate.
- DiY Estate Sales will provide the knowledge, expertise, and experience to plan, prepare, and conduct a successful estate sale yourself.
