Having an estate sale in Tampa?
Whether you’re having the sale for a loved one who has passed or to downsize, relocate or get out of a financial hardship, it’s always best to hire a professional.
If you live in Southwest Florida, an estate sale company in Tampa can make this process much easier on you. Read on to find out the top 4 reasons why!
1. Get the Most Cash for Your Estate Sale
Pricing out a large inventory of items may be harder than you think.
Even if you know the original purchase price of every item, you may not know the current resale value. Don’t you want to make the most you can from your estate sale?
It’s important to note that there’s a difference between perceived value and actual value.
Hiring an estate sale company in Tampa is an easy way to ensure that you don’t place an emotional value on items and price them too high to sell.
Or worse, underprice a valuable item you didn’t know was worth a fortune!
2. Make This Difficult Process Easy On Yourself
Estate sales by nature are emotionally draining and stressful.
Hiring a professional will help ease this process greatly.
The estate sale company won’t be emotionally attached to the items or the home and can, therefore, think with a clearer head than someone in mourning or dealing with letting go of memory triggering items.
This emotional distance, plus the good eye that comes with experience, helps the professional appropriately price out and facilitate the estate sale.

3. Protect Yourself From Less Than Ideal Buyers
You may envision an estate sale with honest, trustworthy, and empathic members of the community as your customers. Hopefully, that’s the case!
However, you may face rude comments like “this is all just junk” or “they clearly had horrible taste.”
These can be incredibly hurtful to someone hosting an estate sale, since they’re likely already feeling vulnerable.
Also, you will likely encounter hagglers trying to get you to bring the price down. Unless you’re already an expert at bargaining, this may be frustrating to handle.
4. Prevent Theft
Worst case scenario, you may even get some thieves looking for a “five finger discount.”
Many thieves will work in groups, creating a distraction and taking advantage of the fact that you don’t have eyes in the back of your head.
Professionals know all the tricks in the book and can manage theft prevention for you.
