Estate Sale or Auction?
On-Site Estate Sales are often the best choice when liquidating most estates, and often bring in more money for personal property than auctions do. This is especially true when dealing with a house full of general household items such as furniture, kitchenwares, clothes, tools, books, cleaning supplies etc, which are common and plentiful in most homes.
Auctions, on the other hand, can be more lucrative if all the items in the estate consist of a collection of more valuable items, which generally attract collectors, dealers and buyers who are willing to pay the best prices.
Having to decide between having an estate sale or auction can be quite difficult when you're already dealing with an inherited property with many years worth of household goods and cherished possessions, or simply helping a parent or loved one who needs to relocate or downsize. The fact is, many auction companies will only accept items worthy of being auctioned for a substantial amount of money; or like consignment shops, will only take items that are aesthetically pleasing, desirable, or collectible. This leaves you with a houseful full of general household goods.
