Once an agreement is finalized, my team and I will come in to start the set up process. First we figure out traffic flow, parking, entry and exits etc and decide how the sale will be structured. Next begins the process of setting up the sale. We bring in tables and find the best ways to display everything to make it easier for the shoppers to find what they are looking for.
This means, we take everything out of their hiding places by emptying cabinets, searching the attics and basements. We go through everything with a fine toothed comb so that we know exactly what we have and what we are offering.
The next step is to price and research the items. We try to find that just right balance of pricing so that the item will sell but also get as much as we can for our clients. We work on a percentage basis so that means we are invested in getting the best price possible for every item which, in return translates to a better outcome for both the client and us.
Lastly, we hold the actual sale. This is usually 2 or 3 days depending on the situation. We profusely advertise and have a large email list and many social media followers who can’t wait for the next opportunity to find their latest treasure so our sales are well attended and highly successful.
Once the sale is over we can do either of two things. In some cases, we will handle the clean out services of anything left after the sale leaving the space broom swept or we have people on tap that we can call to do the clean out if we aren’t able to do it ourselves (sometimes our schedule gets too full to handle this ourselves).
Either way, you can rest assured that we can see the process through from beginning to end while tailoring it to your needs! Each of our estate sales is expertly tailored-made for the client's particular needs like no one else can do!
