How Our Estate Sales Work
The Consultation
The first step is always a free consultation. This appointment consists of a detailed walk-through of the home, so the best way to prepare is to simply decide what you will be taking with you. Otherwise, please do not throw anything away or donate; everything is sell-able.
The Commission

Rate:40% (Rate may vary due to your needs)

We strive to keep our cost as low as possible. This means you will never see a labor fee or “additional charges” of any kind! Our commission includes everything dealing with the sale from the labor to advertising. We understand that we may not be the lowest commission in town, but we believe in a service worth paying for, without any hidden fees.
The Sale

Typical timeline: 1 – 3 weeks

Stage 1 – Staging & Advertising

During the pre-sale stage we organize the contents of the home similar to that of a retail store. We utilize our interior design and merchandising techniques to create the ultimate shopping experience. We bring in tables, research and price all items and make sure the sale is well photographed and advertised. We have several experts for pricing in all categories. We make sure all items are priced at current market value.

 

Stage 2 – Selling

Once everything is priced and ready to go, we run a multi-day estate sale on site. We place friendly, trusted staff throughout the home for security, place high value items near checkout and provide each person that enters the home with a great experience. We use professional movers to move items in your home and to remove them after they are sold. We do this to insure no or little damage to the home.

Stage 3 – Collect Your Check!

Once all services have been completed, we provide you with an list by category of all items that sold in your sale and send you a check within 30 days.
