Estate sales are one of the most productive and profitable ways to liquidate estate contents. From high-end items, valuables, to everyday household items, everything goes at an estate sale. We sell it all!
We bring the crowd! Our estate sales draw in a large crowd of shoppers for our clients, the average turn-out is usually 400+ shoppers over a 3 day period. Almost all of our sales are 3 day sales Friday-Saturday-Sunday, these 3 days include discount days and Sunday is usually bargain day 25-50% off all items excluding certain items when needed.
We charge a flat rate percentage to prepare, advertise, and manage an estate sale. The percentage we charge is usually based of off the contents of the estate and the work load to prepare the sale. The average fee is 30% and the fee can range from 20%-40% depending on contents and situation. There is no prepayment required and the fee is deducted from the proceeds after the sale.
Getting an estate sale started with us is easy, first give us a call! We come out and meet you and assess the property contents, select a date for the sale, we start organizing and pricing items (everything is tagged), and we aggressively advertise the sale online. The date we select is usually a couple to a few weeks out in order to allow time to properly prepare and advertise the sale. If you are in a huge rush to liquidate contents we have options for that also. We have done sales with only a few days notice, but in order to get the most revenue it is best to thoroughly prepare a sale and allow a couple weeks of advertising.
