Question: What do I need to do before I hire you?
Answer: NOTHING. You don’t have to lift a finger, and that is the best circumstance for both of us. This takes the stress and work of preparing the estate off of you, and it allows us to determine what should be sold and what should otherwise be disposed of. Oftentimes, a family will throw out/donate/etc. what they think has no value, when what they have removed from the estate is exactly what our buyers are looking for. Clothes, smaller items, old tools and kitchen appliances, etc. are all desirable to some buyers, so if you leave them in place we will make sure that we will sell them if we can. That way, we will both make more money.
Question: What sells at an estate sale? I don’t have a lot of “antiques.”
Answer: Everything sells at an estate sale, from antique to modern, large to small. We have liquidated older homes and newer homes, homes that are full of antiques and homes that don’t have a one.
