What is the difference between Estate Sales and Auctions?
Auctions put the entire burden on you – the seller. You have to check all of the items for their condition. You have to conduct the research into the value of the items. You have to make sure that you store and transport them properly. The online auction sites such as eBay give you an alternative to the physical auction but you will still have to make arrangements for shipping.
Estate sales take all of this hassle out of the selling process as a professional will carry out all of the work for you.
What is the difference between Estate Sales and Consignments stores?
Most consignment stores don’t get a lot of customers because of the higher cost involved in running a consignment store the expenses gets passed down to your items additionally your items may sit there awaiting a buyer for a very long period of time.
