The process of preparing for an estate sale can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. In this blog post, we will go over the steps you need to take in order to prepare your home so that you can get the most out of your estate sale.
1. Clean out your home
The first step is to clean out your home of any trash or personal items. Next, you want the estate sale goers to be able to browse through the environment and find what they are looking for easily.
To make room, start by sorting all of your things into categories so that you can create a list of everything you have in one place. By starting organized, you can quickly sort through everything and make the process much more smooth.
2. Stage the items in your home, so they are easy to find and look appealing
Once you have sorted and labeled your items, it is time to pick out the best of them. Do not just pile everything into one location – take the time to arrange all of your things in categories so that people can find what they are looking for easily.
3. Remove anything that is not being sold at the estate sale, such as trash or personal items
If you have too many personal items or trash taking up space, you can easily remove them from the premises. However, take this time to tidy up your property and make sure it is safe for visitors with items like lawn furniture or tall plants that could hurt someone.
4. Add prices to all of your items for a more professional appearance
To avoid confusion, add all of your prices to items so that customers can see the value for themselves. A great way to price your belongings is by using a scanner gun so you don’t have to manually update them with stickers or labels each time they change, which will take up valuable estate sale space!
5. Make sure you have enough manpower on hand to help with set up and tear down during the estate sale
An estate sale is a lot of work, so be sure to have a team of people on hand to pitch in and make the process smoother. You can ask friends, family or even hire a professional junk removal company to help out.
6. Create signs around your property directing visitors where to go
Getting the word out about your estate sale is the best way to advertise your estate sale. Add signs around the outside of your house and on other nearby properties. This will be helpful for both you, as the owner, and those who are looking through what you’re selling!
