When the time is right, take the first step and call to schedule your free consultation visit.
Since you may have salable items of value that you are unaware of, it's important that you don't start the "throwing out" process, prior to our arrival!
During our appointment, we will walk you through the whole process: We sit down and get to know you and whatever your needs may be, assess the inventory for sale, show you how we display items from past sales, review our contract, discuss what should be removed from the property (such as personal items/items to be kept), designate what should be thrown out, and answer any questions you may have pertaining to your sale.
Setting Up Your Successful Sale -
Upon the scheduled set up date, we will come in with all our necessary supplies, such as: portable tables, tablecloths, specialty display pieces, baskets, bins, organizational/group pricing signs, pricing needs along with cleaning/polishing products.
Next, we start sorting and organizing (no cupboard, closet, drawer, attic, garage or basement, left un-turned). If personal items are discovered, we set them aside in order to return them to the proper party. Where applicable, we also research values on items, such as: jewelry, sterling, artwork, rugs, antiques, collectibles, etc. (See our "Resources" page.)
We use current market values, in order to determine reasonable and appropriate prices for your items. Our goal is to liquidate the home. However, our clients always have the option of placing "reserve prices" on those items requiring them.
After the above named process is done, we creatively display the items for sale, doing our best to enhance what you have to offer! (Certain items may require a case. Not to worry! We provide that too!)
Prior to your sale, we apply and pay for town permits, determine the signage needed, and hire traffic control (where applicable). In addition, we advertise via the local paper (hard copy/online). We also photo/detail advertise on EstateSales.net and through our website. By providing the labor, to photo/detail advertise within our website and EstateSales.net, we are able to drastically reduce advertising costs, yet provide an extremely detailed and precise representation of your sale.
Finalizing Your Sale -
At the end of each sale, we work with our clients regarding the unsold items. (And, pertaining to the items that have sold, ALL SALES ARE FINAL! This policy protects both the buyer and the seller, and is a common practice within the estate sale business!) Anything remaining and not desired to be kept by the family, can be given to a charity of the family's choice, charity we use, or disposed of by hiring a clean out company. Since each family's situation is different, we work to assist with the final arrangements. Regardless of which path the client chooses, they end up with a cleaned out, presentable property!
Payment: The client receives a check, representing their portion of the sale!
