Frequently Asked Questions

Your Questions and Answers — In One Place

How much does a liquidation cost?

There is no out of pocket expense to you. We work on commission, with no hidden fees. We provide a free consultation. Then we conduct all the research, pricing, staging, advertising and labor for the sale. Once sale in finalized, you will receive your portion of the proceeds.

Will the house be totally clean?

When an in person sale is held, we aim to sell 60-80% of the items. No matter how hard we work, there will always be some unsold items. There are options for disposal, from donation, which allows for a tax write off, to junk haul away. Another popular option is the family goes through remaining items one last time, then chooses how to dispose.

What kind of services do you offer?

Our goal is to sell as much as possible, which means pricing correctly. Too high a price means fewer items sell and pricing too low means less value for the estate. This also means we will utilize outside sources, such as auctions, to ensure we get the right value for your items that may be higher end.

Do you take estate leftovers to sell yourself?

We price things fairly, so that we have the best opportunity to sell as much as possible at your estate sale, which means more profit for the estate and our company. If there are high end items that don't sell during the sale, we have some options to liquidate them and still get you the funds.

How involved do I need to be?

Once we start working on the estate, we prefer you to have all heirlooms that are not being sold to be tagged or removed. We will do a walk through with you to ensure we don't sell anything you're keeping. Once we start working on the estate, we want you to be able to be hands off and let us handle the rest. We will update you with progress and if we have a question or find an heirloom you were looking for. However, we don't need you to be there when setting up or on the sale days.

How long does it take?

We generally like to have two weeks to fully set up and advertise a sale. However, there are always circumstances that may prevent this and we're able to be flexible with your schedule. We have a large following of dedicated shoppers, which is the best form of marketing we could ask for.
