Online Estate Sale Services from Caring Transitions of Stafford

Find out how CTBIDS can help you or a loved one set up online estate sales in Woodbridge, VA and the surrounding areas

Estate sales can be an extremely effective way to liquidate an estate and find your loved one's belongings a new loving home. However, in-person estate sales can be time-consuming and expensive for many families, which can lead to stress and frustration. Caring Transitions recognized that many clients needed an option that was less involved than an estate sale and that worked around our clients' busy schedules. So, our team created CTBIDS to enable clients to sell items online from the comfort of their home.

How Our Online Estate Sales Work

Our team will organize a free in-home consultation to assess your needs and how we can help best. We will appraise the items you wish to list on CTBIDS and begin preparing them for sale. Our team can help with photographing and listing these items with you to ensure that we can help them find new loving homes. Once these items are listed on our online auction platform, you will be able to sit back and watch them sell.

How CTBIDS Prices Items

CTBIDS offers a variety of pricing options. This allows us to customize your online estate sale to your specifications. A list of our pricing options is as follows:

  • Auction: In a standard online auction, you list your item and then let bidders compete for it until it is sold to the highest bidder.
  • Fixed Price: Fixed price items do not go through the bidding process. Instead, this pricing option allows you to set a fixed price for the item to be purchased by the first buyer.
  • Classified Ad: To generate more interest in your online estate auctions, you can run classified ads that showcase images, descriptions, prices, as well as shipping costs of particular items to help attract customers. Once the item sells, the ad will be taken down. 
  • Buy Now: Buy Now items are very similar to fixed-price items since they are available for immediate purchase at a pre-set, non-negotiable price.
  • Reserve: Reserve pricing is helpful if you are interested in the bidding process but do not want to sell the item until a specified value is met. Reserve pricing allows you to set a hidden price behind the scenes that the bidders are unable to see. If the price has not been met at the end of the auction, you can restart the auction or consider the highest bidder's offer.
