5 reasons to visit estate tag sales this New Year

The New Year is upon us! And with it, comes the opportunity to find a number of bargain items for your home at an estate tag sale.

 

Tag sales are becoming a popular way for homeowners to dispense of everything from surplus furniture and appliances to decor items when moving home or downsizing. For consumers, a tag sale is an opportunity to “go shopping” for unique and well-priced items without having to sit through an auction.

 

Keep a look out for these 5 items when you visit estate sales this New Year:

 

  1. Large furnishings

Tag sales are a super place to shop for antiques, but even if you’re not a connoisseur, you can pick up some fantastic non-antique furniture. Older furniture pieces are generally better made and more solid than their modern counterparts. You can find bookshelves, tables, desks and other wooden furniture that has been well cared for and is in great condition. Be careful of upholstered items, and factor in the cost of cleaning and re-upholstering before deciding to buy.

 

  1. Cutlery and crockery

From exquisite silverware to fine bone china dinner services, a tag sale is a perfect place to search for high-end cutlery and crockery. If you’re not into collecting fancier sets, you will also find items suitable for everyday use at the same price of buying low-quality in-store.

 

  1. Glassware

You can pick up fantastic glassware at an estate sale, at the cost of shopping at a Dollar store. Of course, you’ll be getting far better quality, and can even find interesting colored vintage pieces to add a bit of flair next time you have friends over for drinks.

 

  1. Decor accessories

Older homes can be a treasure chest of decor accessories if you like a touch of vintage charm. Look out for lace tablecloths, napkins, scatter cushion covers and curtains in interesting fabrics, as well as vases and ornaments. Estate sales are also the best place to find high-quality art – but as with antique shopping, do your research first to make sure you really are getting a bargain.

 

  1. Appliances

You need to be careful when shopping for appliances at an estate tag sale. Do your research before you go and take someone with you who can help you check that appliances are in good working order. That said, there is a chance to pick up large and small appliances at a fraction of the cost of buying new in-store.

Get broom swept clean-out with estate tag sales specialists

Hummels in Verona, NJ

If you’re selling your home, you’re probably aware of the fact that your property requires a broom swept clean-out before you vacate. If you’ve been living in your home for a number of years this is easier said than done! A convenient way to dispose of belongings that you will not need when you move is by holding an estate tag sale through a specialist such as Jerry’s Antiques.

What exactly is ‘broom swept’?

A broom swept clean-out entails removing all items from your property that have not been included as part of the sale. Fixtures, and any items that the buyer and seller have agreed upon should be left behind. The house should be left clean and in decent condition.

It does not mean that you need to spring clean or hire professional cleaners. It does, however, mean that you may find years of accumulated furnishings, décor, and other items suddenly have nowhere to go. This can be a problem, especially if you are downsizing.

Get the best broom swept clean-out with an estate tag sale

Often items that you need to dispose of are not junk or clutter. They have value… but you simply have nowhere to put them. An estate appraiser such as Jerry’s Antiques can help you sell all your unwanted furnishings and appliances, taking the hassle out of your broom swept cleaning process. In addition, by holding an estate sale through a professional estate appraiser, you ensure that you receive the best possible yield from the sale of your assets.

Servicing the entire Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania), Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales are expert estate appraisers.

Save

The perfect place to find unique home furnishings, art and more? Liquidation sales

A piece of vintage or antique furniture is a great way to add character to your home. And the best place to find unique art pieces and home furnishings? It’s not your local furniture store. Liquidation sales are your best bet for finding hidden gems.

At estate liquidations, the entire estate is for sale – everything from furniture and art to appliances and linen. Often held on the property to be liquidated, an estate sale can be overwhelming due to the sheer quantity of items included. Consider the following before embarking on an estate sale shopping trip:

Know what you want, but be open to possibilities

It’s good to visit an estate sale with a couple of goals in mind. However, the real beauty of hidden gems is that they are hidden. Don’t get so stuck on your check list that you miss out on interesting pieces of art or furnishings. Take time to go through the entire property before focusing too much on items that catch your attention.

Ask about fixtures such as paneling and windows

Many old homes have incredible fixtures such as intricately carved doors and wooden paneling, stained glass windows, and stunning vintage light fittings. These may not have a price tag on them, but don’t be afraid to ask if fixtures are for sale – you could find something truly unique.

Be careful about upholstered items

Inspect any upholstered furnishings such as chairs and mattresses thoroughly, as these may be stained with age or even urine. You’ll need to consider an item’s art or antique value versus the cost of re-upholstering before committing to buy.

Servicing the entire Tri-State area (New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania), Jerry’s Antiques and Estate Sales are estate liquidators providing a professional service and the best possible yield from the sale of personal property assets.

Contact Jerry, your local liquidation sales expert, for further information.
