Talking with a fellow agent today about a auction in Cookeville Tn this past Saturday. This was advertised as a antique auction,but is wasn't . This auction was 95%new furniture. The story continues, about 25 people there and he stated things well high dollar furniture and sold for nothing. He purchased 2 pieces and he gave nothing for it he said. So as they say invest in antiques , reason you say, cost may be more on the front end but if this furniture has been around for 100 plus years,and if taken care of, it will last for another 100 years. Alto of the new furniture are made outside of the US. Please invest in the right thing,it will make your new home look great, remember Realtorscan help stage your home.Hiring a Stagier will help sell your home .
