How Do Estate Liquidations Work?

Being the premiere company for estate liquidations in Sarasota means we have an obligation to the public to help them understand how this, sometimes esoteric, process works.

The reasons why a person might decide to liquidate their assets or sell a property are many, and can occur at various points in someone’s life. Maybe a loved one has passed and left you their home and belongings. Perhaps you, a relative, or parent is downsizing and moving into a smaller space or an assisted living facility. Others may simply feel it’s time to sell off their antique collection.

So How Do Estate Liquidations Work?

Regardless of the reason why you are looking into estate liquidation, it’s important to choose a Sarasota company that is right for you and your specific needs. It also helps if you know what to expect from the process.

How to Sell

There are three main ways a client can choose to sell:

  1. Commission Based –This method puts your items up for sale to be purchased by buyers at set prices. The best part about this option is that the sale can continue until all of your items are gone.
  2. Buyer’s Service – If you are in a hurry to clear out the residence, or simply don’t want to deal with added stress, a second option is to have our professionals buy everything from you upfront through our buyer’s services. Thanks to our experienced antique buyers, you can rest assured that you’ll receive the greatest value for your antiques.
  3. Antique Auctions – The last option is to hold an antique auction which allows buyers to bid against one another. This can drive up the price of each sale, and potentially earn you more money than either of the other methods.


At Sarasota Antiques, we’ll do all of the advertising for you! As an estate liquidations company, we have an extensive network of buyers that we use in conjunction with targeted advertising to ensure the maximum number of buyers participate in the sale.


Perhaps the most beneficial part of the entire process for our clients lies in our taking care of packing and moving the entire estate for those who do not wish to have the sale event on the premises.
