What Is An Estate Sale And What Is An Estate Liquidator?
First, I would like to thank you for taking time to look at our website. We know if you have landed here you have many questions about what an Estate Liquidator does, and if this service is something that may benefit you and your family.
Let's cover why someone may need our liquidation services:
1. Moving to another city or state-Moving costs are high! Sometimes it is cheaper to by everything new when you arrive to your new home than hire a moving service or even rent a truck. Having professionals assist with selling these items is best.
2. Downsizing to a smaller home or assisted living-it can be difficult to see your items sold that you have collected over the years, and you may not even know it's worth. So it is best to have our service assist here.
3. Estate Settlement-this is a difficult time for you and your family. Sorting and selling the personal items, jewelry, autos, boats, homes, all can be difficult to manage and is best to contact us immediately. This way we can assist with what are the next steps. Yes, Julie Jue is a licensed Realtor with eXp Realty, and can assist in the home sale too. We will step in to assist with what should be sold and what can be discarded.
What we do:
Sort Items-this requires diligence to be sure there are no personal documents where customers will find them. We also make sure there are no medications, pictures, keys, cash in the staged areas. We will put those in a special place to protect them until they can be returned to you. Other small valuables will not be left in unsupervised areas.
Stage: We stage in the home-all of our sales are in the home, we do not move to other sites or "brick and mortar" store locations. We also do not "buy out". It has been our experience that neither of these are successful for our clients, nor does it give them the best return. There is no incentive to sell the items if you offer to haul it off after the sale either. We will only consign Jewelry on a Case-By-Case basis.
Research the prices-The majority of the items we price based on our past experience, however there are occasions that require additional information is attain correct pricing. We are not experts on EVERYTHING, but we do try. Fortunately, we do use the internet to assist in current pricing for various items that we may not be familiar with.
Advertise- We advertise on multiple platforms of social media, internet sites that are key for Estate Liquidations, and through our list of followers.
The days for the sale vary from each sale, which means they may only be 1 weekend or possibly more. The time for setup is a minimum of 2 weeks, mainly for advertising. We will do light clean up after the sale, and assist with charity pick up for the items remaining. Once that has completed, then you can choose to dispose of the remaining items, or hire a company to pick up what is left. In about 10 days will send you your funds with a summary of services.
Our sales are successful due to our employee staff. We have an amazing group of people that are caring and knowledgeable about what they are selling. We even have delivery available for most of the sales. (Additional fee is paid by the customer, not the client.)
