Are Estate Auctions Best Option After Death of Loved One?

Many people choose to do estate auctions in Orlando, rather than estate sales after a loved one has passed away and they have to handle all of their property and belongings. While it is possible to do either one, there are a number of advantages the estate auctions have over estate sales.

When you need to get rid of a large number of items like, in some cases, an entire home’s worth of stuff, it can be quite overwhelming. A professional estate liquidation company in Orlando will come to the home and pack up all the items for you, making the process significantly less stressful. You, of course, get to decide what stays and what goes.

Estate Auctions: What Can I Expect?

After everything has been itemized, the items will be brought to the downtown gallery in Orlando to be auctioned off. The auction will not end until every item is sold. This is different from an estate sale because in “tag sales” at the end of the day, whatever has not been sold is kept– either by the owner or to be bought outright by the liquidation company.

It has been our experience that you are more likely to get more cash for your items during an auction rather than a sale. With an estate sale all items have a set tag price on them. So if someone is not interested, there really is not negotiating.

Again, estate auctions will go on until every item is sold. Because everyone is competing with a room full of other people for an item, it creates a sense of urgency and heightened competition. With tag sales it is generally first come first serve, but with auctions it is whoever is willing to pay the highest price.
