Why an Estate Sale vs. Auction:
Estate Sales allow the client to reserve equitable control of what an item sells for. However, auctions deprive the client of its control over what an item may sell for. Also, an estate sale is conducted in a climate controlled residence providing comfort for customers and facilitates as a professional environment to stage the homeowner’s lifelong accumulation of treasures. An auctions success or failure is subject to inclement weather. Unlike its counterpart, estate sales offer lower commission and no additional fees for advertisement. In additions, the remaining quality items may be consigned, and a significant charitable donation may be afforded on other items.
