Have you Considered these Benefits of Shopping at an Estate Sale?

Have you Considered these Benefits of Shopping at an Estate Sale?

When was the last time you came across a sign for an estate sale in your community? Chances are you see these from time to time. If you have yet to visit an estate sale, if you have yet to consider the benefits, now is the time to change your approach.

Here are three benefits of shopping at an estate sale:

1. Lower prices than retail stores. If you want to save money, this is a great place to do so. You may not find everything you are looking for, but don’t be surprised if you come across many items on your shopping list.

From housewares to electronics, you will find yourself with access to a large selection at reasonable prices. What more could you want?

2. Ability to negotiate. This isn’t something you have the luxury of doing at your local Best Buy or Target. However, it is expected at an estate sale. Even if the item is priced to sell, you may be able to “haggle it down” a little bit more. This gives you the opportunity to save even more money.

3. Plenty of fun. From the people you meet to the items you find, the more estate sales you visit the more fun you will have. Even if you don’t buy anything, it can be enjoyable to see what others are selling and to get a better grasp on the market price of items you are most interested in.

The next time you see a sign or advertisement for an estate sale, take the time to learn more. Even if you only visit for a few minutes, it will be well worth your time. The benefits above could soon have you scouring local estate sales on a regular basis.

I love estate sale shopping, and it is a great way to find some great deals. Although there are some risks, I would also add these benefits for shopping at an estate sale:
• You usually do not have to pay taxes, so if you purchase some bigger ticket items, you can save some big bucks
• The ability to find unique or one of a kind products
