Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) April 17, 2012
A recent article in the Chicago Tribune cites the increase in home sales in the Hamptons as a sign that the real estate industry is in recovery. This recovery has sparked increased revenue in not only the real estate industry; it has increased demand in two niche industries: estate sale services and home staging. Bethesda Estate Services, an estate sale company in Bethesda, Maryland, utilizes its niche services to increase the value that a sale offers to sellers.
Estate sales liquidate the items in a home. By doing so, sellers are able to avoid the costs associated with moving their belongings, which can be substantial when relocating large estates. For buyers who are looking to downsize or who are selling their second home, the process of moving their entire estate is, frankly, unnecessary. Instead, they contact estate sale professionals to liquidate their assets and increase their bank account balance—not their moving bill.
“Estate sales provide another way to ‘declutter’ your home before or after it is sold,” commented Brette Bates, co-founder of Bethesda Estate Services. “Bethesda Estate Services has flourished this past year due to increased home sales. As the real estate market has picked up, we have had an unprecedented demand for estate sales. This demand is driven by our clients’ desire to sell their home furnishings either before or after the sale of their house.”
But estate sales provide more value than simple convenience. These events can provide the financial assets necessary to pay for the costs associated with selling a home.
“Our clients typically make several thousand dollars during a weekend estate sale. This additional income helps offset the costs of home improvement that are often necessary to sell a home,” stated Bates.
Another niche industry that the real estate recovery has affected is home staging. The aforementioned article refers to this as a cottage industry. Home staging involves removing clutter and arranging furniture in an effort to feature a property’s most valuable assets. The aim is to make the home appealing while creating a space in which buyers can imagine themselves living.
As the real estate industry continues to recover, estate sale and home staging professionals can expect the spike in business to persist.
An estate sale company, Bethesda Estate Services spearheads the planning, execution, and clean-up associated with estate sales. Through these services, the organization assists clients with the major task of organizing and liquidating the items of an estate, which often include antique or rare pieces. Frequently, these services benefit individuals who are downsizing, who have lost a loved one, or who are responsible for the estate of a senior family member who has moved into an assisted living or nursing facility. Bethesda Estate Services provides a well-rounded experience, allowing sellers to avoid the stress that the event may cause by managing all aspects of the sale, from item location and organization to the donation of unsold pieces.
