Funeral Financials Announces Their Top 3 Reasons to Hire a Funeral Concierge

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 22, 2013

On May 16, 2012, LifeHealthPro reported that, with funerals costing $6,500 or more on average, a funeral concierge can help families negotiate lower costs for all aspects of a funeral, among other benefits. Funeral Financials announces their top 3 reasons to hire a funeral concierge. With the average household income in the U.S. having dropped 7.3 percent from $55,438 to $51,404 since the recession according to Sentier Research, the average funeral costs 12.6% of an average U.S. households annual income.

Funeral Financials top three reasons to hire a funeral concierge are:

1. They do the negotiating:
One of the best perks a funeral concierge can provide is the negotiation of funeral costs. Funeral homes often package their services differently, making price comparisons difficult. Concierges are simply professionals who understand how funeral products and services are priced and packaged, and can organize information to help families make a decision. One should choose a funeral concierge that is not associated with funeral service providers and who will not profit from one's decision. These are the people who can negotiate lower prices on a family's behalf.

2. It’s inexpensive:
Ensuring peace of mind for families during a difficult time is priceless, but a funeral concierge service doesn’t have to be costly. A funeral concierge can streamline the decision-making process for a nominal fee. According to the report, Everest Advisors charges $50 per year or $495 as a one-time fee. Considering the valuable price negotiation a concierge can provide, it’s likely the service will pay for itself. Some insurance companies may offer life or burial insurance with a supplemental concierge package.

3. Possessing a diplomatic middleman:
When a death occurs, emotions can run high and communications can be mishandled between family members. A funeral concierge will often offer a conference call service that allows family members and friends from anywhere to be connected to help discuss funeral arrangements. The concierge can answer questions and concerns in a calm, authoritative manner. The concierge can also help create a personal funeral plan if none was made by the deceased.

The editor of Funeral Financials stated on May 21st, 2013, "With the internet growing as big as it has, and even things like funeral expenses ending up on sites like Tumblr, all costs, even funeral costs, have become a negotiable commodity."

Following the LifeHealthPro report that discussed the benefits of a funeral concierge service, recommends hiring a funeral concierge due to their price negotiation skills, low cost, and diplomacy during a difficult time. is an online resource dedicated to helping people navigate the complex funeral-planning process. Helping people make informed decisions regarding funeral costs is their top priority.
