What is the difference between an estate sale and an estate auction?

An estate sale or on-site estate sale is held at the home and can be a lengthy process. A company will come in, price each and every item in the house for individual sale, and conduct a 2 or 3 day sale to sell as much of your deceased relatives estate inventory as possible. Most companies are booked several weeks out with expected turnaround times of at least a month. This type of estate liquidation has many tangible expenses such as additional utility bills, exposure to liability, insurance requirements of the estate, wear and tear on the real estate asset and its appliances as well as wear and tear on the landscape, neighbors, and neighborhood. The thought of inviting dozens of strangers into a deceased relatives home to pick and haggle for bargains is not pleasant. 

At Orlando Estate Auction our estate auctions are held at our gallery near downtown Orlando every Saturday. Interested buyers come once a week to bid on the multiple estate inventories that we have collected for the auction. We sell every item in our estate auction gallery to the highest bidder this is known as an absolute auction. No matter where you are located, an estate auction service company can typically pick up and clear an estate within 24-48 hours, we hold auctions every Saturday evening and send out consignor checks that next Wednesday. Our expected estate liquidation turnaround time is typically 5-10 days with no wear or tear on your real estate asset. With our trouble free rapid estate sale process by estate auction your estates inventory is liquidated without the extra expense and liability risk that an on-site estate sale presents.
