Estate Sale (online or on premise)

Estate liquidation is a sale or auction to dispose of a substantial portion of the materials owned by a person who is recently deceased or who must dispose of their personal property to facilitate a move. This process requires planning, research (for higher end items), possible investigation for collectors or groups with special interest, and a marketing plan to get the word out. This is all done to maximize the monetary return. At times, we can pull in the timeline, depending on the client’s ultimate objective(s).
Timing: 4 - 8 weeks
Fees: Individual contract prices vary. 60% of sale proceeds go towards contract fees.
This sale is a hybrid “estate” type sale, with a goal to clear a home and offset the costs to clear the home. This method is used to expedite the estate sale process while the ultimate goal is to remove belongs/assets and when many items are not estate quality. The sale is managed in a secondary market with prices somewhere between estate and lower market prices. Many clients use this method when downsizing, moving and/or moving to senior living facilities or when expedience is the ultimate goal. The goal is used to clear a home with a timeline < 60 days to completion. Deposit required upon contract signing. Proceeds in excess of contract amount is issued to client/estate. Any balance is settled at the close of the sale.
Timing: 2 - 4 weeks
