Estate liquidators can assist you with selling any belongings on your Orlando property, whether they are antiques, furniture, jewelry, tableware, art, or anything else. There are a wide range of reasons that may necessitate you selling off a property and everything in it, but whatever the circumstances, it is always a stressful time for you. Fortunately Sarasota Antique Buyers can help.
Why Choose Estate Liquidators Over Other Options
Why choose professional assistance over other methods? Do any of these circumstances resemble yours?
Inheritance – This includes those who have inherited a lot of belongings, a collection of art of furniture, or even an entire home from a deceased friend or loved one. This can be a difficult and often trying time for you, and the last thing you need is to worry about what to do with all of this stuff.
Downsizing – There are many scenarios that would dictate the need for downsizing. This includes moving an older family member into a retirement home or assisted living facility, moving into a smaller more manageable home, or even moving cross country. And downsizing doesn’t have to mean moving – Maybe you’re selling off a collection, or having a baby and need to create a safer home environment, or perhaps you simply want a change of pace. There are even circumstances where the last tenants of your rental property left and abandoned their things there, which you need to get rid of. Whatever the reason, our Orlando estate liquidators can help.
There is no need to attempt to sell off everything at a private garage or yard sale type event. Not only is this a huge undertaking to put on yourself, but you end up selling all of your items for pennies on the dollar. Similarly trying to host an estate auction on the premises can be incredibly stressful when doing it yourself. And for both of these options, getting the word out about your event is near impossible- you end up going through all that work and cleanup only to sell off less than 1/3 of the property.
When you choose to work with Orlando’s premiere estate liquidators however, we’ll do everything for you. We even work on a commission basis for auctions and liquidations so you are guaranteed the best results and pay nothing out of pocket.
We’re here to assist you with:
- Sorting what to sell and what you want to keep
- Packing everything from dishes to furniture to statues
- Moving everything out of the property
- Selling the items to secure the highest profits for you and writing you a check afterwards
Additionally our Orlando estate liquidators will handle all the marketing, and with our large network of buyers, auction houses, and collectors we can guarantee you the highest prices on your items. We also offer buyers service for those who want to forgo the trouble of a sale all together. If you want to expedite the process, we will evaluate all of your items and make you a cash offer up front!

What We Do
Recently, many people have been asking us how our liquidations and sales work; below we have outlined the basic steps we will take:
This is the most important part of the process. Your estate is a collection of items that have been collected over the years, and most estates have “sleepers,” which are items that are of great value but have not been identified.
So often, clients will call us after they have sold some of their items, and come to find out they gave away the best pieces for a small amount of their true value.
At Sarasota Antique Buyers, we use the 80-20 rule: You make 80% of your money out of 20% of your items. So make sure everything is properly appraised, before you sell!
The initial consultation is free, and we recommend that you do not throw out or give anything away until we have gone through everything! You never know what could be of value!
How We Sell
Setup: During this stage, we will stage the house, prominently displaying the items for sale. If necessary, we can remove the estate to our own venue, as some areas do not allow estate sales to take place on site. However, if your house is for sale, hosting the estate sale at your home is a great way to advertise!
Advertising: To make sure as many people as possible know about the sale, we will advertise through multiple venues including online, print, and our customer base.
Sale: Our sales will typically last 3 days.
After the sale: Whatever does not sale will be removed by our auction company and put up for auction. We remove all of our supplies and clean up afterwards, as well. Once everything is completed, we will provide you with a detailed statement (including a sales log) along with the check for your sale proceeds.
The truth is that we might not sell all of your items in the estate sale.
Some high quality items will not obtain their real value in an estate sale, which means you will not make as much money as you should. If we were to find a Chagall painting or a 15th century Asian bronze statue in your estate, an estate sale venue would not be the best place to sell the piece, since many people looking at it will not understand its true value. In fact, when this occurs, we will recommend an auction instead. Not only are our auctions international, but they will put your piece in a situation that allows the price to be driven up by multiple bidders.
At Sarasota Antique Buyers, as well as Estate Liquidators, we are antique dealers, buyers, and auctioneers; so who better to determine the value of your estate before it is sold?
In addition to our estate liquidation sales and auctions, we also provide a buying service. This is best when we have a client that needs to sell some items quickly to get cash immediately.
