When clients call Tampa Bay Total Estate Sales for their initial consultation, they usually ask the question: “What can be sold at an estate sale?”
Our answer is that almost anything you find in a house might sell. Along with the usual antiques, furniture, household and garage items, a complete estate sale can include pieces of the house which are slated for removal or remodeling. Appliances, fixtures, cabinets, doors and windows have sold at our Tampa Bay area estate sales in the past.
One of our recent total estate sales was indeed total! Although the items were serviceable and in good condition, the clients and their realtor decided to use the estate sale to sell any and all of the kitchen appliances and fixtures; they planned to renovate the kitchen before listing the house. That meant an oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, under-counter microwave and all the cabinetry were available for shoppers coming to the estate, all in great condition and modern enough to give service in style for years to come.
For the clients, selling the kitchen down to the walls saved time, money and dump fees. For customers of Tampa Bay Total Estate Sales, our sales have offered a chance to replace aging or failing appliances, install cupboards in a garage or workshop, improve a rental property or revamp their own kitchen for a fraction of the price of new.
