An auction is a great choice for estates with high-value items
There are many ways to liquidate an estate. Auctions, estate sales, and direct sales to dealers (seller beware), are the three most common formats that are used to sell the items in an estate or collection. That said, the only format that is guaranteed to generate the widest, many times International, interest, frenzied bidding, and is accepted by all courts in the United States as the preferred method of estate liquidation, is the auction. Auctions bring together like-minded buyers, pit them against one-another in a competitive bidding format, and have the broadest advertising reach of any of the ways to sell items. This is why, when someone wants to maximize the value of their collection, he or she chooses an auction to do so.
Auctions are a great choice for a tight timeframe
Furthermore, collections that must be liquidated in a short timeframe are excellent candidates for an auction. Oftentimes, whether it be due to a court order or the necessity of raising funds to settle an estate, the auction format allows an owner to liquidate items, and generate cash, quickly.
The auction process is transparent
Modern auctions all incorporate an online component, so all interested parties can follow, in real time, the bids on an item and its ultimate sales price. This characteristic is one of the reasons that courts who are responsible for liquidating estates, as well as families with multiple beneficiaries, prefer the auction format over all others.
