If you’re interested in starting an estate sale business, then look no further. Estate sales are fast becoming the next best thing in direct marketing and sales. Why? This is a business that solves a problem in the life of seniors, heirs, executors, movers, estate agents, and Realtors (just to name several potential clients) in a vast market that is underserved in England, Germany, Australia...
Not only that, the estate sale opportunity has a proven track record of integrity, honesty and quality among professional estate sellers and estate liquidators.
Estate sales also have longevity, not just as a service, but as a thriving industry, which comprises several related business services that facilitate this type of sales—better known as direct sales.
Does your skill set of selling, professionalism, organization, time management, personality, recordkeeping, accounting, recruiting, customer service and house cleaning items, match the requirements to be an estate seller in this booming direct sales industry?
This is the question you must ask yourself to determine whether you can do estate sales. Without some basic business skills, this book alone may prove to be more challenging than you’re prepared for right now.
While you can start an estate sale business without having all of the above ingredients, it would be a lot easier if you did for the long haul. Otherwise, you may have to rely on more people to help you in those areas from the beginning. If those are your pre-existing skills, albeit a little rusty here and there, an estate sale business can very possibly become a profitable homebased enterprise for years to come.
