We begin our process by choosing a package that best suits our clients’ needs. Negotiating items inventory, appraisal, reductions, staging and disposal, for example. Once our goals are stated we get to work by creating an inventory log of all items to be sold, categorizing them by like type, or any system that gives the best advantage of a high sales rate.
Preparing for an estate sale starts before the public learns about it. Our team will go into the location, they begin the process of sorting everything out, looking for potentially sellable items. It is extremely important for an estate sale professional to do this, for many people are not knowledgeable about what brings value, what is sought after, and what can bring a great vintage price. Appraising these items properly is what determines the success of the project. A estate sale professional will know the market price, and will keep the appraisals current.
Once the inventory is fixed and accounted for, the appraisal process begins. With a combination of market knowledge and comparative analysis; the items are priced, with reductions if agreed; estate sales generally operate with a subsequential price reduction over the course of the sales period, which is commonly 2-3 days. Property Yardsale has packages for 1 to 3-day sales and can customize any package to suit your individual needs.
Next, we begin our focus on the marketing of the sale and getting the equipment ready to use. Property Yardsale facilitates a full marketing campaign, utilizing the large database of buyer’s that we generate from the Thrift Shop of Largo, an assertive social media campaign, postings on all local, relevant websites, and any proven resale app or website out in the market place. We also provide print media in the local papers and have even posted specialized ads for luxury items. We provide all our own equipment, and this makes the sales process easier for our clients; in fact, we provide merchant processing for debit, credit and gift cards, which ultimately provides more profits to our sales project.
