How does the process work?

Estate sales, tag sales, and downsizing sales have historically been run so that there is a waiting period before customers are able to buy the items and then a two-day sale where hundreds of people walk in and out of the home on a mad dash to gather the items they've been drooling over all week. Our attitude is why make them wait? Time is valuable for our clients and our customers. 

Our ultimate goal is to earn our clients the most money possible and put the items into the customer's hands that know their value and can't wait to give them new life. Our shopping process is different because we advertise larger and more valuable items earlier in the setup time so that we can find the buyer that's ready to purchase and take them home sooner at the full asking price rather than selling them on the second day at half-price - which is what other companies do.

 

We're not auctioneers, so we set the price at the fair market price, determined by our years of experience and what the market trends are and then we advertise it through multiple platforms.

Where do I even begin?

We know this process seems daunting. Dealing with a lifetime of items isn't an easy task when you're not armed with the right resources and team to help you. The good news is you're making the right moves already just by reading our website.

The next step is to just take a brief walk through your house and identify the pieces you know you want to keep in your next move. Reach out to family members that might want to keep some items as well. Children or grandchildren may want to keep items that remind them of their childhood, special memories, or pieces they've always loved. 

 

Then give us a call. We'll ask you some questions: how big the house is, how long you've lived there, what kinds of items you're looking to sell, and what your time frame is. We'll answer any questions you might have about the process.

If you're feeling ready, we can set up a time to walk through the house with you for our initial consultation. We can sometimes be there as soon as the day you call us or we can set up a time within the upcoming weeks that works for your schedule.

Prior to our visit, you can make further decisions on what you'll want to keep so that we have a clear picture as we walk through as to which things you're moving with you and which items you want us to sell on your behalf.

What should I expect during the consultation?

First things first, this costs you nothing. 

 

We'll come at a time that's convenient for you. Generally, our consultations take about thirty minutes to an hour. 

During that time, we'll walk through the house with you, get to know each other, and look at the items you're interested in selling. It can sometimes be helpful, both for you and for us, to mark items you plan to keep with  Post-It notes (not necessary, but it's worked for lots of other previous clients!).

We're not there to judge how tidy you are or how much "stuff" you have. We're there to see if we can help you, so don't stress about any boxes that you're already packed that are stowed in a corner... Moving is hard work, and sometimes it's messy!

While we walk through, we are checking a few things out for ourselves. We're making sure we're a good fit to work together, the items that you're selling are "sell-able" (some things just aren't for one reason or another), and we're estimating the amount of time it will take to go through all of your items to be sold and what type of sale we think would best match the items you're interested in parting with. 

Once we've walked through the house, we can sit down with you and answer any specific questions you might have and if you're feeling ready and we think your sale would be a success, we can go over a contract. 

We're low-pressure! If you're not ready or need some time to think about it, we aren't going to push you in one direction or another. This is an important decision and isn't right for everyone.
