Tampa Bay Estate Sale and Cleanup Tips

Unfortunately, in Tampa Bay, there is an estate sale almost every day of the week, every day of the year. With an elderly population, change comes with the territory. There are many reasons for an estate sale: downsizing, shifting to assisted living, death, divorce, debt, finances, lifestyle, etc. These events often require quick estate cleanout services. “With 10,000 boomers retiring each day” as quoted by, there are greater numbers of folks experiencing a downsizing in lifestyle or, unfortunately, by passing away.

Estate Sale Tips

If you have the time to go through the belongings, work with a professional or hold yard sales, here are five tips for selling off an estate from U.S. News:

  1. Identify items that may be valuable.Do some research to discover what those items may sell for and where you can sell them. This could include online research, visiting antique stores and calling auction houses and vintage stores.
  2. Bring in a professional if you need help.If you can’t value items yourself, hire an expert. An appraiser can give you a realistic view of what items might sell for and which items are worth your time to market.
  3. Make sure family members get a chance to take mementos. This could involve drawing lots, a family meeting or inviting family and friends to take items from those you don’t plan to sell. Determining which items should be should be sold will vary according to the preferences and needs of the family. A simple discussion among family members often helps make this decision.
  4. Decide whether a yard sale is worth the work.People who go to yard sales expect to get rock-bottom prices. If you have enough good items, you may recoup several hundred or even several thousand dollars. But if you don’t have much to sell, you might be better off donating and taking a tax deduction.
  5. Do your due diligence before hiring a company to handle the sale. Get referrals from trusted professionals, check credentials and make sure you outline everything in a written contract including what percentage the company will take and how much prices on the items will be lowered from what has been originally discussed. Understand that this option, while the quickest, is likely to yield you the smallest amount of money.
