It is always a sad occasion when a loved one passes, but you also have to think about the next best steps to take. Such a transition will often include liquidation of a significant amount of household items that the deceased possessed. To keep the stress out of the process, you should look into your options by hiring a dependable estate sale service in Seattle.
Why Hire An Estate Sale Service?
An estate sale may be a less stressful way to handle the inventory you need to move, but holding your own sale brings a lot of extra work for you and the family. Rather than trying to prepare everything on your own, organize, clean, price, and haggle, experienced estate sale personnel know how to handle every aspect of the process – right down to advertising the sale to bring in more possible buyers.
Did you know that you should never throw anything away before the estate sale team takes a look at the property? While something may look like junk to you, there could be things that turn into high-ticket items for the right buyers. Such items that may bring unexpected value include:
- Children’s dolls, toys, and games
- Old magazines, newspapers, and other publications
- Ashtrays with logos
- Baseball cards and sports memorabilia
- Vintage dishes and glassware
- Costume jewelry
- Music cassette tapes, vinyl, and 8-track tapes
- Dated cookware and utensils
- Old photographs
