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.
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.
