November News

Welcome to the November Edition of Surplus.com News & Notes!  This month we look at the best time to list Surplus Assets, creative ways to find buyers, marketing your Surplus stuff domestically and internationally, staging considerations, left overs, overruns, overstock, liquidation, etc.

Ever wonder when is the best time to sell an asset? ALL THE TIME!

And For the last four years on Surplus.com, the  greatest number of assets have  gone under contract in January and February .  There is plenty of time to get ready if you are thinking about a spring list. 


FREE listings up to $2500.00, then very low pricing this year  (2015).

"Buyer- Hunting"

When we are looking for buyers on behalf of my sellers, I leave no stone unturned.  I try to reach them directly through aggressive print, digital and other marketing efforts.  I also work hard to identify Brokers currently looking great deals to purchase and to resell quickly.  One specialty is to find new markets that maybe you did not notice and market there also.  Sell under an assumed name to be recognized and make a new special deal.

Creative marketing and intense networking help find more buyers!  For example, as of this writing, I know the identity of 12 Brokers with buyers who have looked for assets from $25,000-1.5M on my site in the last 30 days.  All a FAST click away, maybe to purchase.  Surplus.com needs your assets to sell, list then!

I want my Seller Companies and Buyers to have every advantage in the marketplace and believe my unique “buyer-hunting” strategies result in a greater pool of potential qualified buyers for their assets. These unconventional methods also provide additional options for the Seller and Buyers.
                
I want my sellers to have the largest possible buyer pool and have embraced several marketing methods to reach these Domestic and the international buyers. 


Top 6 Staging Tips:
  • Start with a Clean Slate - A thorough clean is in order: deep clean and deodorize everything!
  • Clear the Clutter - "Clutter Kills Equity".  Enough said.
  • Scale Back inventory holding areas to look cleaner and less messed up.
  • Add lights – make it all look great, not dirty and in a holding areas for 25+  years.  
  • The Ultra-Luxury asset Watch!
  • The number of assets for sale over $250,000 is on the rise as of late, possibly a result of the new tax policies recently adopted there. 

 
BONUS: List it, Sell It, Move it out  before your CPA tells you to.
