Why Hold an Estate Sale?

How does an estate sale in Nashville TN work?

Estate Sales Reduce Life’s Clutter

We all need to reduce clutter and an estate sale can help us accomplish the task.  Whether you are considering an Estate Sale because of a death in the family, a divorce, debts, or downsizing, your life is at a significant and possibly scary transition point. You may consider the estate sale a means to an end, but in many instances there are memories attached to things you can no longer keep. You probably do not want to be in this situation, much less, deal with this “stuff”. However, moving forward with life means dealing with the “stuff”.

Reaching your Goals while Guarding your Feelings20150622_160033

You are probably asking questions like:

  • Which items can I sell and make money from?
  • Which items do I want to keep because I cherish them?
  • How will I get rid of the rest of this stuff if it does not sell?
  • What are my things worth?
  • How do I find people interested in my stuff?
  • Who can I trust?

Depending on the emotions surrounding your reasons for your estate sale, you may even be wondering how you will get through the next day

This is when you call upon the experts at Berenice Denton Estate Sales and Appraisals to help you with the organization, decision making, pricing, marketing and selling.

People Buy Both Beauty and Utility at Estate Sales 

Each seller wants the buyer to buy an object’s beauty whether it is physically beautiful or beautifully functional.  We understand, however, that the decision to give things away is difficult.

Sellers have memories and prejudices that can value or devalue an object in our minds. Maybe it’s a wonderful and warm memory from grandmother’s house or maybe it’s a piece of furniture you received many compliments on.  This is when a professional Estate Sale person and often an Appraiser is required.  We identify the value and the source of an object’s beauty – functional or aesthetic and let you know what you can expect a willing buyer to pay for the object.
