Most of the time, estate sales happen when handling the affairs of a loved one who has passed away. Other times for an estate sale could be when going through a divorce, moving out of your home, or deciding to downsize. Whatever the case, you should know what happens during estate sales so you can better be prepared for this important process.
- Inventory: When having an estate sale, the first thing that happens is taking an inventory of everything in the home. This involves taking note of everything, determining what can be sold, and sorting the items into specified categories.
- Determining prices: After the items are inventoried, the prices for each sale item will need to be set. Typically, estate sales will have the items appraised to determine their market value and set an appropriate price.
- Display: The visual presentation is a key component during an estate sale. While everything is being set up, the estate sale will usually be advertised or marketed so certain people or the public are aware of the event. By the time the estate sale happens, awareness will be spread, and all the items will look professional and organized.
- Sale: It’s important to have the organizer oversee the sale to make sure everything runs smoothly. As people are let into the home to peruse for items, the organizer will make sure nothing gets stolen or broken and manage the overall sale.
