How Does an Estate / Asset Liquation Work?

We begin by meeting with you personally. This allows us to understand your personal needs and for us to develop a tailored solution to meet your individual goals.

Are Household Content Sales Limited to Just Very Expensive Items?

No. Buyers have all different tastes and needs. We liquidate entire estates of all kinds, not just those that are filled to overflowing with antiques or expensive furniture. In fact, many items are purchased right from the garage or work shop. For perspective, we sell furniture of all types, clothing, general residential contents, cars, stereo equipment, tools, equipment, musical instruments... well, actually, a little bit of everything!

Getting Ready for an Estate and Household Content Sale

First, make sure to get your legal house in order. If there has been a death in the family, make sure that you have legal title and full authority to sell. Make certain, too, that all disbursements have been made to any and all heirs before you call us for a consultation. If there's a divorce or bankruptcy liquidation afoot, make sure that you talk to legal counsel before calling us.

If you are the representative of an estate, we will need to have a photocopy of the necessary legal documents which authorize you to dispose of the contents. We also require that the homeowner's insurance on the home itself be current and in place throughout the sale process. The estate itself is responsible for disconnecting from gas or water any appliances which are to be sold.

We will come out to your home and meet with you personally to understand your goals and to work with you to determine fair market value. The ultimate decision is naturally yours. Our initial consultation is free of charge. Should we determine that an estate sale is not your best option we will offer you other options to help you. We also provide a full array of downsizing, de-cluttering, clean-up and clean out services. We also work with a number of charities who may have a use for some items which will helps others in needs.

Please note that the market for pre-owned items is entirely based upon the style, age and condition of your contents. As a result, not all things are saleable. Additionally, there will always be two different sets of values to any items. There is the seller’s perceived value, which may have a high emotional and sentimental value, and then there is the potential buyer’s view of the contents value, which is generally very different. Please remember that something is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. To learn more, please click here to view a short article we wrote on this subject or click on our Resource link page for a host of other insights into selling pre-owned items, home downsizing, home sales information and elder care.

If there is a mutual decision to go forward with the content sale, we then will then make an inventory of all the items in the house. We work with you to mutually develop fair market pricing for your sale items. We then set things up in a professional way to make things as appealing to the buying public as possible. Next we advertise and market your contents and finally conduct the actual sale. For items of value, we will coordinate an appraisal and help you auction off some of your contents to help defray costs.

How Long Should I Expect My Sale to Run?

Each sale is unique. Most sales only merit one day, while others may take two or even three days.

We typically run our estate sales on a Friday and Saturday to maximize your results.

What Do You Do With Items That Don't Sell?

Naturally, we strive to sell the contents of an estate “wall to wall”, but there are always some things left over in each estate. We also offer downsizing, de-cluttering and clean out services. We work with local charities to recycle household items to those in need and dispose of the balance of the contents (in accordance with all local laws and ordinances) all at the approval of the property owner or authorized representative. Please note: under no circumstances do we buy "remainders," nor do we buy full or partial estates.

Home Security

Whenever possible we try to limit access to your property to one entrance/exit. If there’s an attached garage or breezeway, it’s kept separate from the main house itself and manned by one or more of our team. We do not allow drink cups in the house, and we strongly discourage baby strollers in our sales which can be used to place un-purchased items inside.

Can the Homeowner or Executor be Present for the Sale Itself?

Sorry, but the answer is an unequivocal "no." We will be glad to arrange for a "family only" preview upon request, though.

We don’t allow the family on-site during public sale hours as it has long been our experience that family members inadvertently get underfoot, or become emotional, or get distracted by the public comments or behavior.

The family (or trustee) is, however, most welcome to be on site during the work after the sale (e.g., during the charity pick up or buy out). Again, we always encourage a full walk-through by the family shortly after the sale ends.

What About Sales Taxes?

We provide a full accounting of all items sold. Any sales taxes are the responsibility of the family or trustee.
