We agree to meet and discuss the sale and get to know each other. We'll hear what you have in mind and take a look at the property where the sale will take place. We'll walk you through how a sale works and all the information you may need. We'll discuss everything we'll do before, during and after the sale. We'll discuss our fees and go over the contract. After we both feel comfortable a sale is needed, We'll decide on a date and sign a contract. The only other thing we'll need is a key to the property and a copy of your liability insurance (included in your homeowners insurance).
This is where the work begins. We will enter the sale property site as agreed (usually 1-2 weeks prior) and start the process of cleaning, arranging items, setting up tables, and appraising your items. Items we are unfamiliar with will be photographed and researched. You will be welcome at any time to stop by and see what's happening. At this time we'll also be taking photos to use as we promote your sale.
Pricing & Advertising:
With our years of experience most items are easily priced. But we always find items to research. We'll ask you about them, take pictures and consult experts to get you the best price. We'll start our advertising daily on the website and Facebook. During this time we'll also be getting any city or HOA permits required. We'll decide what's the best form of advertising to use to get you top dollar. All this is done at no cost to you. The only thing you ever pay is our sellers fee.
Your sale will run for 3-4 days. Our trained professional staff will be ready to assist customers with anything they may need during the sale and are constantly watching for security reasons. Discounts are offered as followed: Day 1 - No discounts, Day 2- 25% off everything, Day 3-4- 50% off everything. We like for you to attend during the pre-sale phase but discourage you from attending the sale itself. It can be traumatic to see your things sold. But if you want to attend you're more than welcome. We do collect sales tax on all items sold.
When the sale is completed we will remove our supplies, tables and signs from the property.
The remaining merchandise can be handled in several different ways. You can give it to family, donate items to charity or we can remove unwanted merchandise from the property for you. Out of our fee we handle all cost such as advertising, labor, internet fees, permits and supplies. We'll then return your property key and a invoice showing the total amount sold. You'll get a check for that amount minus our sellers fee. We want to make the entire process simple and easy for you.
