How to select your estate appraiser

Grand Piano and couch

When it comes to estate liquidation, it’s recommended that you hire a professional estate appraiser to value the property (and personal assets) so that you can gain the maximum revenue from the estate. An estate liquidator will appraise the value of the property based on the home and its location. The appraiser is not an inspector, but he will need to take the general condition of the property and other key features into consideration. The sale of an estate is one of the biggest financial transactions a person or family will make in their lives so it’s imperative that you acquire the services of an appraiser who is reliable, competent, skilled and experienced.

Questions to ask potential estate appraisers

Here are a few top questions that your potential estate appraiser should be able to answer with ease:

  • What areas do you specialize in?
    Estate appraisers must have in depth knowledge of the areas that they work in. That’s why it’s not advisable to hire an appraiser from a state that they don’t work in regularly and are familiar with. Make sure that your estate lies in the areas that the company typically focuses on.
  • What references do you have?
    Chatting to estate agents, attorneys and other property owners about the appraiser’s services and ethics is a good place to start if you want to know what to expect.
  • Who will do the inspection and write the report?
    In many instances, a trainee can be sent to the estate to inspect it and write the report, under the guidance of a qualified appraiser. If you aren’t happy with a trainee handling the task, make sure that you let the appraisers know this.

Not every estate appraisal is done after death

Often the right time to do an estate appraisal is before a death. An appraiser can help determine what the estate is worth, what should be kept, what has sentimental value, what will appreciate and what is irreplaceable. Sometimes it is easier to divide an estate evenly if these questions are answered before the family is grieving. It can avoid later complications.

At Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales we service the entire Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania). We provide the utmost in professional estate liquidation or estate sale services, ensuring each estate sale or liquidation produces the highest yield possible.

Why Estate Sales are Better than Yard Sales Every Time

Trying to figure out where your hard-earned money will be better spent? Debating whether to make a stop at a neighbor’s yard sale or whether to pop in to that upcoming estate sale that you’ve heard so much about? Here are just a few reasons as to why estate sales beat yard sales every time…

You’re More Likely to Find Hidden Treasures

When you visit someone’s yard sale, you will be sifting through items that they are hoping to get rid of, so the overall value of each item isn’t likely to be anything special. At best, you can expect to find a few useful kitchen utensils, old toys and perhaps some handy sports gear. At estate sales, on the other hand, you can look forward to sifting through a number of interesting finds, including antiques and plenty of vintage clothing. If you know how to spot a hidden gem, you might just walk away with more than a few valuable treasures!

It’s More Professional

Yard sales are conducted in a neighbor’s yard, so the amount of organization involved will vary. With an estate tag sale, on the other hand, everything is planned and facilitated by professionals with years of expertise, so you can expect a more streamlined overall experience.

There’s More Time

Yard sales are usually held over the course of one day, whereas estate sales generally last for a period of three days. Therefore, if you pop in on the Friday and see a few items that you’re interested in but can’t really make your mind up about, you can always come back on the Saturday or Sunday if you do decide to take the plunge and make the purchase. Just remember that many of the valuable items tend to go quickly! So if you don’t jump at the chance to buy them, it’s highly likely that someone else will beat you to it…

Are you looking for estate liquidation services? Perhaps you want some more information regarding upcoming estate sales in the NY, NJ or PA area? If so, do not hesitate to get in touch with the team at Jerry Antiques and Estate Sales.
