Memphis, TN (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Copeland Estate Sales, a Memphis estate sale company, has published a new blog series called “estate sale secrets.” The blog is a part of the company’s recently launched website.
In the blog series, author and company owner Jerry Copeland details several ways consumers can save 70% off of retail by shopping at estate sales in favor of big box retailers
“A little bit of knowledge about the purchases you’re making can go a long way when you’re shopping at the estate sales Memphis has offer,” Copeland said. “When customers research before going to a sale, they can save a lot of money.”
Copeland urges readers to consider purchasing high quality, antique furniture from an estate before heading out to your local furniture store or chain retailer. The blog details ways shoppers can identify quality furniture from furniture that’s not up to standard.
“Antique furniture is built to last and is available for low prices at estate sales,” Copeland said. “That means you are saving money and making an investment in a piece of furniture that will last for decades.”
Another benefit of shopping at estate sales, Copeland finds, is the ability to negotiate. Unlike retail, customers who shop at estate sales can openly negotiate to get a price that better suits their budget.
“People who shop at estate sales should not be afraid to negotiate for a better price,” Copeland said. “If you want to save some extra money you can always ask if they can go lower.”
The blog series features tips focusing on all aspects of the estate sale process for both the estate sale shopper and the estate sale host. The blog also covers topics like “Using Your Smart Phone at Estate Sales,” “Estate Sales and Social Media,” and “Common Mistakes Made When Planning Estate Sales.”
