Important COVID-19 safety measures for shopping our estate sales during this time include:
All staff and customers will be required to wear a face mask to enter the house, and we will provide hand sanitizer at entry and exit. Please follow social distancing. We will also be reducing the number of people in the house at once.
Virtual Estate Sales and Shopping By Appointment
In some cases, a house may not suitable for a traditional estate sale. In these cases, we may offer a virtual sale where shoppers can view and purchase items on our website as "available now".
After purchase, we schedule a time to meet at the estate for pick-up.
We welcome you to shop our "appointment only" sales in person, where we restrict the number of shoppers in the house at one time. Safety measures include: increased cleanliness, masks and hand washing for all of our staff, and each shopper must still wear a mask to enter the house.

Our Traditional Estate Sale Process
The first step is to schedule an onsite consultation. Here, we meet you at the estate and perform a walk-through of the home, garage and outbuildings. This is where we determine if the sale is viable, how much time it will take to prepare, and offer tentative dates for when we may hold your sale.
Preparing your Sale
Once you hire us, we handle the sale from start to finish! We bring in the supplies we need to adequately sort, clean, stage, secure, research and price tag your merchandise to maximize proceeds. We take pride in holding clean, organized and attractive estate sales.
Advertising your Sale
Your sale items are photographed and advertised online; through our private email list; on pay-to-list websites; and sometimes the local newspaper. When advertising online, we input keywords that help customers find your specific items. Signs lead to your sale to draw in street traffic. For privacy and security, Nunneley Estates & Appraisals does not reveal your sale address until the day before the sale.
The Estate Sale
Depending on the size and volume of your estate, we hold a 2-4 day estate sale for 6-8 hours each day. We allow a limited number of customers in the home at a time. Multiple trained staff members are there to assist. We accept cash and credit card onsite.
After the Sale
In general, our clients’ goal is to completely empty the house and garage to prepare for the next step in their lives. If it is your wish, out team will leave the home "broom clean", with each room, cupboard, and closet empty. Any items that may not have sold can be returned to you or donated. If specialty items are left over, we may offer to take them on consignment.
Payment to Estate
Payment and accounting package is mailed within just 10 business days following your sale.
