This review is from: Liquidating an Estate: How to Sell a Lifetime of Stuff, Make Some Cash, and Live to Tell About It (Paperback)
I've been in the antique business for 20 years and shopped at over 5,000 estate sales, and I can tell you this book about liquidating an estate has it all. The author has written many chapters detailing how to sort through your mountain of stuff and make a preliminary determination about whether your items have resale value (they most likely do unless it's truly trash), and why you will save yourself a ton of grief and lost revenue if you bring in a pro to advise you, before you begin selling or even before throwing away stuff that looks to you like junk but actually can be sold at a nice profit. (Included are true-life tales of unrecognizable or hidden or lost treasures, that had been headed for the dump, bringing in big money instead, thanks to the trained eye of a professional adviser.)
The book takes the mystery and overwhelm out of disposing of an estate whether you consign at auction, hire a liquidator, or gird your loins and do it yourself. Unlike a previous reviewer alleged, Mr. Codina includes an entire chapter on the pros and cons of running your own estate sale, and even provides helpful hints and tips and lists of what you'll need to do it well, and what to expect through the process.
Also, the book is beautifully organized and put together, with loads of helpful, color pictures, and is printed on quality stock. Highly recommended.
