About a month ago we discovered the mecca of all chic-ness, EVERYTHING BUT THE HOUSE (EBTH). At EBTH you can bid on eclectic, one-of-a-kind goods from the world's largest estate sale from the comfort of your own home. On the flip side, you can also sell your entire estate without lifting a finger. Whether you've just bought a house, are looking for a specific piece to complete a room or are downsizing and are ready to unload a number of pieces, EBTH exists to make that easy for you. Last week we chatted with Karley of EBTH who's on the ground here in Detroit about what they do and how they can help you.
Let's start with the selling aspect. Selling an estate can feel like an overwhelming task, especially trying to get the most for your belongings. With EBTH, you don't have to lift a finger and you'll get roughly three to five times more than at a traditional estate sale. Spanning over 450 families each month and about 20 markets, it's a trusted way to get the most bang for your buck without the headache and time suck of selling it yourself. If they aren't available in your market, they also offer a mail-in consignment program so if you have a few items to sell this is your best bet. They photograph, market and unload your items for zero cost to you. The catch? They take 15%-40% of your estate sales, which overall will probably net you more cash than doing it yourself. The cool thing here is that EBTH only makes money if you do.
So let's talk about the buying end of things. You just moved into a new place and you've been looking for the exact right coffee table, but you've had zero luck. From the thousands of estates they've sold, this is where you're going to find that unique, collectible piece you won't find anywhere else and because of the auction style selling you're most likely to get the best deal possible. The catch? There is no catch EVERYONE SHOULD BE SHOPPING HERE.
