If you’ve recently lost a loved one and now find yourself in the position of having an estate sale, you may be wondering how you will handle all of the details. Many of us find that the belongings our loved ones had carry some value and/or memories that make it hard for us to let go.
One option that may be helpful for you as you plan an estate sale for a loved one’s property is to hire a professional to manage this important part of the closing of an estate. Here are some benefits of working with a professional estate sales manager:
- Collections & Works of Art – If your loved one was a collector or enjoyed works of art as part of their home décor, and estate sales management professionals will be able to price these items appropriately and work with buying partners to ensure that they go to the best homes. This takes the stress away from you having to research and find homes for collectibles and valuable art that belonged to someone dear.
- Personal Involvement (or Not) – Another benefit of having an estate sales manager to assist you is because you can choose how involved you would like to be in the process. Whether you want to talk with potential buyers about the memories of each piece or remain in the background while an estate sale takes place, you can choose your level of comfort in the process.
- Time & Care Taken – Thirdly, an estate sales manager will take time and care when it comes to your loved one’s valuable items. Because of the sensitivity surrounding estate sales, a professional will understand that some items carry sentimental value in addition to their monetary value and should be treated with respect.
