Our Traditional Estate Sale Process
The first step is to give us a call for a free phone consultation so we can learn about your sale, timeline, and schedule a walkthrough. This is where we determine if the sale is viable, how much time it will take to prepare, and offer tentative sale dates.
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, we do 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. 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 stage. If it is your wish, our team will leave the home "broom clean", with each room, cupboard, and closet empty. Any unsold items can be returned to you or donated. If specialty items are left over, we may be able to arrange for consignment.
Payment to Estate
Payment and accounting package is mailed within just 10 business days following your sale.
