Thanks to estate sales “out with the old and in the with the new” can be met with a budget!
Summer is practically here and many of us are in the process of moving into new homes or simply re-vamping our own. Winter months can leave everything feeling drab and gloomy. Our couches no longer look fresh and shapely, instead the pillows are flattened, the cushions are sunken in and that clingy dog hair just won’t stop sticking. If you are looking to re-do your home on a budget there are few ways you can do it.
Sure, you can go on a shopping spree at the local furniture store and buy everything brand new (that may leave you with a whole in your wallet) or, you can visit an estate sale. Yes, Estate sales are great for re-doing your home because usually everything being sold is in great condition at a great price or a reputable estate sale company will not include it in the inventory.
For the price of a new couch, you would be able to get an additional coffee table, a lamp and maybe even a rug. Estate sales have great choices for one-of-a-kind deals that are sure to be authentic. If you are moving into a new home and are thinking of unloading some of your belongings. Estate sales are great both for purchase and for selling. Estate sales often double as a consignment sale.
This means that you still make a profit on what you sell; yet you don’t have to worry about organizing and researching your items for sale. Another great advantage of an estate sale is that they are quick. You are able to sell/buy everything within a 2-3 day period. This beats looking at a catalog or an online magazine and saves you time on delivery/pickup. Some estate sales, such as Grasons Co, a rated #1 estate sale company in Orange County make it super easy as they have everything posted on their website, marketed across the web and an experienced staff to handle all the research, setup and advertising to ensure excellent results.
If you are new the estate sale world, Grasons makes the introduction quit simple. Start out by searching items you might like, and who knows, maybe you will get inspiration to clean out that attic and sell a few items yourself.
