1. People throw things away instead of selling them at an estate sale.

2. People still don’t understand that some common things have “collectibles” value.

4. People wish they knew where they could find the Do It Yourself Estate Sales Guide.

People throw things away instead of selling them at an estate sale.

It’s a fact that everyday people throw away many items from their homes, or the homes of people who have passed away, not knowing that there are other, more economical ways of dealing with a household’s contents.

Have you ever heard a friend say “My Mom threw away my comic book collection”, or “I use to collect Barbies.”

Selling the household contents of a decedents personal property at an Estate Sale makes good sense, especially in hard times like these.

People still don’t understand that some common things have “collectibles” value.

A Zippo lighter like the one pictured, could sell for as much as $450.00 or more. Here’s something to ponder and think about. “Is it possible that the thing that I am about to throw away has a hidden value.”

The reason that there is an explosion of collectibles being sold today is because so many people have tossed or thrown away many once common items.

People will buy most anything at an estate sale, that they would buy from a store.

Do you have to have a fancy estate to do an estate sale? No! Does your house need to be filled with priceless antiques to do an estate sale? No! Must you have fancy jewelry or fine art? No!

Of course having any combination of those things will help your estate sale, but they are not necessary.

At our estate sales we sell all manner of common everyday items; furniture, pots and pans, and clothing.

Here is my order of estate liquidation.

  1. Try to sell it.
  2. Try to give it away.
  3. If you cannot do 1 or 2 then it’s OK to throw things away.
