  3. Do You Do Estate Sales At Our Home?

    No....Here is the scoop!! If you hire an estate service to hold an estate sale at your home, you will either be charged a huge upfront fee plus a large commission or you will have to pay for all their workers to setup the sale and also conduct the sale, plus you will be charged a commission fee and pay for the advertising too! This means in most cases that you will end up with hardly any money at all, or in some cases you will owe them money at the end of the sale
    Tryans Auction Center has one fee and everything is included!!
