5 Signs You Need an Estate Sale in NJ

NJ Estate And Moving Sales

The New Yorker recently wrote about the magic of estate sales from the perspective of a buyer. While it’s true that perusing an estate sale as a buyer can be a wonderful experience, holding an estate sale also comes with unparalleled benefits.

Holding an estate sale is a great way to get rid of a lifetime’s worth of belongings swiftly. Working with an estate sale company can make the process smoother and less stressful.

How do you know if you need to have an estate sale in NJ? 

We’re here to tell you. Read on for five common signs that it’s time to have an estate sale. 

1. A Relative Has Passed Away

Estate sales commonly occur after someone passes away, leaving their home and everything in it to a beneficiary. While you may find that you want to hold on to a few keepsakes or items of high value, you may want to get rid of the vast majority of the property. An estate sale makes it easy to empty a home of these belongings and make money doing it.

2. You’re Making a Major Life Change

Not all estate sales occur after someone passes away. You may want to have an estate sale when you’re downsizing or moving into a retirement community. Some even hold estate sales after a major life change like a divorce, as an estate sale makes it easy to start fresh.

3. You Would Benefit from Liquidation

New Jersey no longer has an estate tax, but it does have an inheritance tax. If you’ve inherited both liquid funds and property, you may find that selling some of that property can help cover the cost of inheritance tax. If the property you’ve inherited would do you more good as liquid funds, an estate sale is the right choice.

4. An Inherited Estate Is Causing You Stress

Chances are, you already had other obligations when you inherited the estate of a family member. You may not have the time to tackle organizing the estate or selling items individually while also juggling work, family obligations, and other activities. Holding an estate sale can alleviate stress and allow you to focus on the other things in your life that need attention.

5. You’re Working Alone

If you’re suddenly in charge of an estate alone, you’re likely overwhelmed. You don’t need to keep everything you now own but you also can’t handle redistribution on your own. With an estate sale company, you can work with a team that knows exactly how to price and market to create a successful estate sale.
