When does liquidation make sense?
When there are not enough items, your home is deemed unsafe to hold an estate sale or you’re in a rush and want to turn your items into cash quickly, an estate liquidator can help you achieve this by evaluating the items you have and make you an offer as a bundle.
Not all, but some estate sale companies also provide an estate buyout of all the contents in the home.
Choosing between a buy-out liquidator or an estate sale company
Your real estate broker or attorney is a great source during the probate process. If you are not in probate, simply downsizing or looking to rightsize your living space, rely on an estate sale company to guide you on whether you will get the best value from a buyout liquidation or by holding an estate sale.
If you’ve made up your mind and you simply want fast cash for your items, an estate sale company can also guide you in providing the contacts you need to liquidate your items quickly without holding an estate sale.
How do you know if the liquidation offer is good?
Always rely on multiple sources to make the best decision, read reviews, ask for a reference, and if you’re unsure whether or not you’re making the right decision, always rely on a professional estate sale company to guide you through the process of liquidation.
