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

An 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 the inventory as possible. Most companies are booked several weeks out with expected turnaround times of at least a month. An estate auction is held at our gallery near downtown Orlando. Interested buyers come once a week to bid on the inventory we have collected for sale. We sell every item in the gallery to the highest bidder. We can pick up and clear an estate within 24-48 hours, we hold auctions every Saturday and Monday, we send out consignor checks every Wednesday. Our expected estate liquidation turnaround time is typically 5-10 days.
