Do you help seniors who are considering moving or downsizing?
Absolutely. We offer patience, compassion, and expertise in assisting older adults and their families with managing the appraisal and/or sale of the contents of their home.Whether the goal is to move into a more suitable home or obtain an appraisal of certain items, we provide valuation, sorting, and onsite estate liquidation services after the move.
The first step is to contact us so that we can get an idea of your specific needs.
We help with:
1. Sorting items you may want to sell versus keep
2. Wrapping and packing items not to be sold
3. Appraising items
for insurance purposes before movers arrive
at other values for other purposes
4. Estate Liquidation
delivering donations, where you receive the tax slip
Fees vary depending on the size of the job, any time constraints, and expected total sales.
We charge an hourly rate for sorting, wrapping, and packing items that you do not want us to sell, plus the cost of packing materials and boxes.
For written appraisal reports, please call us for a copy of our appraisal fee schedule.
If you simply want to hire us to conduct an estate sale in the home after you move, we charge a commission for the sale of items, without any upfront costs to you.
Each situation has its own set of goals and time constraints. The time needed to complete each job depends on the urgency to move, the number of items to be appraised or sold, and the types of items to be sold.
Our goal is to provide caring, customized estate sale organization and personal property appraisal services. We use a written contract so that everyone is on the same page, and think it's important to maintain an open line of communication. We carry liability insurance.
