WHAT IS AN ESTATE SALE? It is the professional liquidation sale of
personal property . . . everything from antiques and automobiles to
everyday household items. Estates are sold for families, heirs,
executors, attorneys, trustees, and those who are moving into smaller
WHY HIRE PROFESSIONALS?... WHY
NOT DO IT YOURSELF? Because
we will make more money for the estate. The pricing and selling of
personal property needs knowledge of values, not only of antiques and
collectibles, but of the hundreds of usual items that make up an
estate. We take the worry out of a very stressful
and labor intensive job.
DESCRIBE AN ESTATE SALE? The sale is held on the premises of the
estate. All items are researched, displayed, and individually priced.
It takes an average of two weeks to set up for a typical sale. The sale
itself generally takes two days, usually over a weekend. Payment, including a complete summary of inventory sold, is provided to
the estate typically within 7-10 business days.
WHAT DOES IT COST? The fee is based on a percentage of the
gross receipts of the sale - ALL Standard Services are included. Additional
charges may be made for sales that demand special considerations. Other
services, such as Personal Property Appraisals for Probate purposes,
are also available.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW? We use an extensive mailing list of customers
and specialty buyers, along with newspaper advertising and flyers. The
sales are well attended and professionally conducted.
