Estate Sales Present Great Opportunities for Collectors, Bargain Hunters, and Casual Shoppers
Bowie, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/07/2016 -- 77 million baby boomers were born between 1946 and 1965, a number which amounts to many retired or near-retired couples and individuals without a need for a large home. As they retire, and move to smaller condos that are easier to maintain, much of their property must go too. This is where the professionals at iStuff Sellers come into play. As a team flush with experience in estate sales, they are well-equipped to help sell all of the possessions that would otherwise go unused. From artwork to jewelry, furniture and tools to kitchenware – nearly all of the items in a home must be prepped for purchase. There are even big ticket items such as cars, boats, and flat screen TVs that must be liquidated. These sales present a fascinating opportunity for countless buyers, including collectors, bargain shoppers, and casual customers just strolling by.
"There are many times were we have to liquidate a massive amount of stuff in a 15,000 plus sq. ft. home that is fully furnished," expressed iStuff Sellers owner Darren Hahnfeld. He continued, saying "Plus, we're only given a few days to sell pretty much everything in and around the house all the way down to the vehicle parked in the garage."
The fact of the matter is that usually people only use this type of service once in a lifetime. So an estate sale is usually completely foreign territory to a majority of consumers out there. In conjunction with that there a number of mom and pop companies who have been around for some time but just don't have the online or advertising expertise to bring in the amount of people necessary to liquidate such an enormous amount of items.
One of the main misconceptions regarding estate sales is also one that iStuff Sellers aims to demystify: that estate sales are only performed when a death has occurred. On the contrary, estate sales are arranged for a wide number of reasons:
- Job promotions for those moving overseas
- People moving into fully furnished homes
- Divorce situations where the couples can't agree possession, so a judge decides to sell and everything and split the proceeds
- Foreclosures and bankruptcies
Not only are estate sales misunderstood by many, they also have great benefits for all parties involved and even tertiary benefits for the planet. Ultimately, when consumers purchase new furniture, furnishings, and other items around the house, the production has a huge effect on our environment. Conversely, buying from an estate sale reduces energy, fuel costs, air quality – all contributing factors to global warming.
