Do I Need An Estate Appraiser For A Commercial Liquidation?

appraisal

An estate sale for a commercial liquidation is very much the same as a private or residential liquidation, except for the fact that everything within a building – instead of a private home – will be sold. Similar to a private liquidation, certain items may be kept aside for whatever reason.

An estate appraiser can add immeasurable value to a commercial liquidation. Whether you own a large or small commercial property, estate appraisers can come in, find all the hidden treasures and put it out on a counter for a thorough appraisal.

Estate appraisers also help with staging. Many times, when people attend an estate sale, it is helpful for the space to be neat, look full, and for items to be organized into certain categories. Estate appraisers can handle all of these things for you.

Correct Pricing

If items aren’t meticulously researched and evaluated, they can’t be priced correctly. When items in an estate sale aren’t priced ahead of time, it can happen that they are sold too cheaply.

Another consideration for pricing is how long you have to sell the items. If you only have two days to sell everything, you may want to consider selling items at a lower price to ensure everything gets sold.

Estate appraisers also help to clean out the commercial property. If items aren’t sold, they can be gathered so that the property can be ‘broom swept’. The items can either be donated to a charity of the client’s choosing or returned to the client.

It is very important to make sure that everything is priced and displayed correctly. This will ensure that you get the most money for your commercial inventory.

At Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales, we service the entire Tri-State area(New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania). We assist homeowners, realtors, and attorneys in maximizing the revenue from the sale of personal property assets, consistent with acceptable costs.

Estate and Tag Sale Service: How to Prepare for Your Estate Sale

estate appraisal

At Jerry’s Antiques, we often get asked how to prepare for an estate sale. An estate sale is almost like any other transaction from a broker standpoint, but it is important that you consult with an attorney and complete any legal paperwork so that you are legally able to sell the home/apartment and items within the property.

Once that happens, bring in a reputable estate and tag sale service to bring the property to life and attract the kind of buyer that will walk through the property. Many times, there will be furniture, paintings, and other objects around, which can either boost the value of the property or bring it down. An estate and tag sale service will be able to help you start the process of organizing the items, removing the items, and staging the property for prospective buyers.

Negotiations, time management, advertising, and an in-depth knowledge of antiques are a must-have when partnering with an estate and tag sale service. They manage everything from marketing the sales to supplying extra items that are needed, such as tables, table coverings, display cases, and lighting. On the sale day, the company should have a crew of experienced professionals on site to help with the procedures.

At Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales, we provide estate sales and estate liquidation services throughout the Tri-State area (i.e., Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York). We take care of everything from start to a broom-swept cleanout.  To make sure your estate and tag sale is handled with the integrity it deserves, contact us today.

Hire Estate Appraisers New Jersey and Discover Treasure between the Trash

JerLocation1

Most people are under the impression that the value of an antique depends entirely on how old it is – but this is not necessarily the case! If you are in the process of down-scaling or liquidating an estate, it is definitely in your best interest to hire an estate appraiser to help you to discover the treasure between the trash.

The Value of Estate Appraisers 

Estate appraisers know that even though an item may be old and considered to be an antique, this does not necessarily mean that it is going to be worth all that much if it ever goes on the market.

Estate and antique appraisers will look at numerous other factors when evaluating an item, including the following:

  • The condition that the item is currently in,
  • How rare the item is,
  • Whether there is a market for it at the moment,
  • Whether there is a demand for it,
  • Whether it was created by anyone special,
  • The materials from which it was crafted, and
  • The quality of the craftsmanship itself.

All of these factors play an important role in determining the value of an antique.

The most common mistake made by owners of antiques is thinking that their items are more valuable than they really are which can lead to disappointment when they try to sell them. However, it is also common for antique owners to overlook the potential value of certain items in their possession, only to be ripped off by buyers who know better. This results in the owners losing out on a sizeable portion of the profit.

An estate appraiser, like the experienced and skilled appraisers at Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales, will be able to provide you with an accurate valuation and will also be able to help you fetch the best possible price for the items that you decide to sell. Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales can also provide you with a broom-swept clean out of your home, saving you time and endless hassle.

Here’s How Estate Liquidators Can Help You in 2019!

JerLocation1

If you need to hire an estate liquidator and/or an estate appraiser, it is important to know exactly what services they will be able to provide you with. Below, we give an outline of how estate liquidators, like those at Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales, can help you in 2019.

 

The Basics 

When you hire estate liquidators, they will be responsible for appraising, pricing, and selling off the entire contents of your estate. Generally, the estate liquidator will be there for you pre-sale, during the sale, as well as post-sale to handle a few other duties. The good news is that you won’t have to pay the estate liquidator upfront. Instead, most estate liquidators will take a commission in the form of a set percentage of the profits made in the estate liquidation sale.

 

Who Should Hire Estate Liquidators?

Estate liquidators can help those who are looking to downsize their homes, those who are looking for extra money to settle their debt, as well as helping both parties after a divorce to sell their joint assets and split the money. They can also help to liquidate the estate of a relative of yours who has passed away.

 

The Estate Sale

While there is a lot of work that is involved in both the pre- and the post-sale, the estate sale is the main duty of the estate liquidation experts. Not only will they be there to encourage potential buyers to make a purchase, but they will also need to keep records of what is sold and at what price. He or she will be responsible for ‘running the show’ from start to finish. Here at Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales, we make it simple to hire estate liquidators and professional estate and antique appraisers. Contact us for more details today.

What to Do When You’re Responsible for a Loved One’s Estate

estate appraisal

The death of a loved one is always a difficult time. In such instance, there is a lot of grieving, but certain administrative processes need to take effect lest unscrupulous individuals try to take advantage of the sad situation. With Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales, you can be sure that the Estate Appraisal will be handled in a professional and respectful manner.

Here are a few things you can do to ensure the safety of a loved one’s possessions during an estate liquidation:

Keep Their Possessions Safe
It is advised that you change the locks of the home, and move all items of value to safe storage or safety deposit boxes. A vacant home is an easy target, and individuals like neighbors or old friends may have copies of the keys and take advantage of the situation.

Create an Inventory
It is advisable to have an estate appraiser present when doing the partial clean out of the estate. That way, the estate appraisal can be overseen and accurately valued by a professional eye, and a comprehensive inventory can be drawn up.

Look For Important Documents
Things such as a Last Will and Testament or Life Insurance Policies will be valuable in the distribution of the estate, and will ensure that the process that the deceased would have wanted is followed accordingly.

Employ A Trusted Estate Appraisal Company
If the estate is to be auctioned off, higher-end estate appraisals should be left in the hands of experienced and trusted companies. Having the benefit of multiple years in the business, Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales will be able to ensure a smooth transition and auction, allowing you to obtain the most value for the pieces in the estate.

At Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales, we follow a ‘Philosophy of Antiques’ that ensures all our cases are handled efficiently and professionally. If you are interested in our services offered, from auctions to estate appraisals, please contact us today!

Ask These 5 Important Questions When Hiring Estate Liquidation Specialists

Estate liquidation

When going through an estate liquidation, you may be sitting on some interesting pieces which you would like to sell for the greatest value. Getting the right estate appraiser could mean the difference between making a tidy sum of money in your broom swept clean out, or selling yourself short and losing a lot of potential income. These 5 questions to ask any antique appraiser will help you to narrow your search:

  1. Ask For an In-Home Consultation
    Letting an estate liquidation agent come into your home gives you the chance to meet the person that may be running the liquidation for you. It also gives the agent a chance to look over your items and layout with an experienced eye. Things that you may not have considered, like parking spaces and proximity of resources, may factor into your prices.
  2. Discuss Method of Payment
    Any reputable Estate Liquidation Company will accept credit cards. This ensures that they are legal entities that pay taxes and are documented and insured. A cash-only estate liquidation company is a red flag and should be avoided.
  3. Extra Item Policy
    Some less reputable Estate Liquidation Companies try to shuffle in other pieces that don’t belong to you into your sale. Discuss what their policy on external items is with your antique appraiser.
  4. Get An Estimate
    Set realistic expectations of what your estate is worth, but ensure you get an estimate from a trained estate appraiser to get an idea of how much to expect from your final estate liquidation.
  5. Ask The Details Of The Companys Operation
    Ask about the company’s insurance, staffing, whether they use in-house personnel or hire external contractors, if they have workers compensation and what the contract looks like. If the contract changes after you have signed it, you have the right to walk away.
