WHAT IS AN ESTATE SALE, anyway?
Today’s meaning of an estate sale is the liquidation of a person’s assets and possessions upon death or downsizing. Some people just buy a new home and want to liquidate all their old possessions and then purchase all new ones. Empty nesters and baby boomers are a large part of the estate sale clientele.
CAN I ASSIGN MINIMUM PRICES TO SPECIFIC ITEMS?
Clients are allowed to set minimum prices on certain items. Our expertise and knowledge in current market value will obtain you the maximum price something is likely to bring. Our discretion to price your items for the maximum prices will bring you maximum profits.
HOW SOON WILL I BE PAID after the estate sale is over?
Your check is mailed within 24-48 hours after the sale ends unless you want to meet too personally to pick up check. Usually the check is mailed out first thing Monday morning (the day after the sale is completed).
SHOULD I SORT THROUGH ITEMS AND CLEAN THE HOUSE?
NO, DO NO THROW ANYTHING AWAY even if you feel certain it is of no value. Organizing, sorting and staging are our job.
What if my estate contains FINE ART or RARE COLLECTIBLES?
Our expertise and professional appraisers will determine the current market value of items whether they are common or rare. All your possessions are treated like Fine art, collectibles and ancient artifacts by our staff.
SHOULD I WAIT UNTIL THE HOUSE IS SOLD to hold my estate sale?
No, the home sells better when your pictures show furniture in the home. It has been my experience that the house is usually sold by the time the estate sale is ongoing. If not, you will need flyers available to give all the customers/possible buyers showing a picture of the home with full description and sales price as this is your FREE OPEN HOUSE!
