Why online estate sale over traditional?
Great Question! The answers are endless but here are some basics.
- 240 hours of view time by the world > under 24 hours of view time by only locals.
- True market value > Below market value
- By far quicker process with far less hassle.
- Earn up to 10x+ vs traditional estate sale.
- (ex. if you were gonna sell Tiffany Lamps why not post online for the world of lamp lovers to bid and reach what its truly worth or even more, instead of some locals walking in your house just thinking it’s an overpriced lamp. The same logic applies to every item.)
Do you have an appraiser on staff or access to one?
There is no appraiser that specializes in everything, and the appraiser model always puts high hopes for more money than truly worth, leaving much room for mistakes. Our mastered process always guarantees true market value for each item.
How will my home be left? Broom Clean, Empty, etc?
Worldwide makes sure to leave your home as neat as we entered if not cleaner. (We offer packages for more in depth cleaning as well)
Do you or your employees buy items?
A great question! A huge concern of ours and why we handle all online compared to traditional is so there are no discounts or better deals given to those we know, which happens all the time in traditional sales. Being all online we cannot stop employees from bidding and purchasing items through a separate account, although there are no discounts or benefits for being employed with us. Any and all purchases made by anyone even myself are all fair and equal opportunity, the highest bidder wins no matter who the person is!
How many days will the sale itself be?
Unlike traditional estate sales that only have a 2-3 day sale, averaging 18 hours of view time altogether. We post every item online for 240 hours(10 days), averaging 10x+ view time AND may I add view time by the WHOLE WORLD, not just those who happen to be in the area during a traditional sale.
Do you have insurance?
How many days do you think it will take to set up? How many days for whole process?
Our setup is like no one else, we are only in your home for one day, (two days if very large sale). The whole process will take around 1 month.
How long after the sale will I be paid?
Unlike most companies who take a month to receive the payment, We strive to get you it as soon as possible ranging 2-3 weeks after end sale date or sooner.
What is your field of expertise? Antiques, Art, Furniture, etc?
Our expertise is selling anything and everything. There is nothing we can’t sell, including the home itself.
How many people do you generally have come to the house for setup?
We generally staff 5-6 people to each home setup. All employees are bonded, well knowledgeable, background checked and always wearing photo ID so you never have to be concerned who is in your home.
Do you have a contract? Can I have a copy to look over?
Of course! Please contact us to setup an appointment with one of our Estate Advisors who will gladly meet with you and be able to give you a contract and talk over any extra questions you may have.
Consultations are entirely free.
Do you pre-sell or allow people to view items early?
We do not pre-sell any items. Although we do have a subscribing list where we email all of our subscribers a preview of the new items about to be listed, only to attract more attention for your items and give our loyal customers a heads up on upcoming sales.
When would you be able to do the sale (dates and times)?
With such a large demand for the service our times are very limited although we will work our best to fit you in as soon as possible. Please contact us as soon as you can so we can work to schedule you in or at least book you for our soonest time possible.
