Caring Transitions of Tyler is Organizing Online Estate Sales Through CTBIDS

Learn how Caring Transitions of Tyler can help you or a loved one set up an online estate sale in Tyler, TX and the surrounding areas

Estate sales can be a great way to liquidate an estate and find a new home for your loved one's belongings. However, local estate sales can be an expensive and stressful endeavor for many families. Caring Transitions recognized that our clients needed an option that was less time-consuming and involved than an estate sale. So, we created CTBIDS to enable clients to sell items online conveniently.

How Our Online Estate Sales Work

Our team will perform a free, no-obligation consultation to assess your needs and how our team can help best. We will evaluate the items you wish to list on CTBIDS and begin preparing them for the estate sale. Our team can help with photographing these items, describing them, and listing them with you. Once these items are listed on our online auction platform, you can sit back and watch your items begin to sell.

How CTBIDS Works

CTBIDS is a uniquely customizable online auction platform that allows you to price your items in a variety of ways. This allows us to tailor your online estate sale to your needs and sell your items at a fair price.

Consider the following pricing options:

  • Auction: In a traditional online auction, you list your item and then let bidders compete for it until the auction ends and the item is sold to the highest bidder.
  • Fixed Price: If you are not interested in the bidding process, 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 sales, you can run classified ads that showcase images, descriptions, prices, as well as shipping costs of particular items. Once the item is sold, the ad will be automatically removed. 
  • Buy Now: All fixed-price items are Buy Now items, allowing shoppers to purchase the item instantly at a fixed, non-negotiable price.
  • Reserve: Reserve pricing is helpful if you want to set up an auction but do not want to sell the item until a specific price is met. Reserve pricing allows you to set a price behind the scenes that the bidders cannot see. If the final price is lower than the hidden price, you can either restart the auction or consider the highest bidder's offer.
