How do we proceed? It's best to begin with a face to face meeting to discuss your needs and how an Estate Sale may best work in your situation. No charge for this meeting.
We discuss the terms of our contract and commissions. Commission is determined by quality, quantity and condition of the items. No up front cost guaranteed.
Clean, sort, organize and display items to maximize sales.
Our staff will diligently research, inspect and evaluate all items. We will bring along all necessary supplies to set up tables.
Sales are 2 -4 days. Advertising is done on a web page. Display signs will be strategical placed around community and surroundings areas. We will utilize social media outlets and Facebook.
Have charitable items removed and the house should be swept clean of debris. Arrange for trash or donation pick up.
We accept all major credit cards which translates into more sales for you. We turn over house key. Inspect the premises and pay proceeds within 72 hours of completion of sale.
The largest error families make is tossing things out to prepare for an estate sale. Not knowing values or costs for example, many will assume the value is based on the age of an item. Not true, many collectibles that are not antiques and often overlooked can bring some nice change to add to the bottom line, or many, think, “It's an antique!" Just because something is antique, does not mean it is valuable. On the other side of that coin, we find many families donate or toss out what they deem is "the junk". By doing this you are stripping value from your estate. We have sold some of the strangest "junk" items for good money! For example at a recent sale an item that the family was going to toss, a 1960 Pez dispenser, was found in a desk drawer and iit was in the garbage can, as "junk". One just the same was shown on Antique's Roadshow for a value of $150.00
