My father has asked me to help him set up an eBay store for some estate sale type items and I'm looking for current advice on all things eBay. [more inside]
My mom has a lot of stuff to sell, and she doesn't want the hassle of a do-it-yourself approach. What kind of people should we involve? We're thinking maybe an ebay broker for the small stuff and an estate person for the big stuff. (Or else maybe a place like Sotheby's?) Know any good ones who serve Westchester, NY? How would we find good people? [more inside]
We have inherited a home in a retirement village in the Jacksonville Florida area. Prior to us inheriting it the home has been on the market for 2 years. The realtor lowered the price 6 months ago and tells us that it is best price in the area. The home has a 700 a month maintenance fee and we are anxious to sell so that we can divide the proceeds of the sale amongst the 3 children. Our realtor is telling us that lowering the price now won’t do much because there are not any people coming through the area. What do you recommend? Should we place an ad? If so where? Is there a senior magazine for retires in the snow belt of who would be interested. What is the next best course of action?
