What are the steps?


There are ten steps in our online estate sale process:


1. The first step with all of our services is a complimentary consultation. Our experts assess your estate, recommend a package and answer any questions you might have.


2. Next we draw up a contract outlining all of the terms and conditions of our agreement including timeline and rates.


3. Our professional team comes to your home to sort, catalogue and photograph everything for the sale.


4. The online sale is then made ‘live’, allowing potential buyers to view the auction and begin the bidding process.


5. We market the auction for a period of 2-3 weeks, depending on your timeline, drawing on our extensive contact list of online buyers to bring traffic to your sale.


6. We hold a preview day, by appointment only, one day before the close of bidding, so potential buyers can inspect premium items in person before bidding closes.


7. The final day of bidding is the closing of your auction when most of the bidding action takes place.


8. Pick-up day – buyers come and retrieve the items they have purchased, usually the day after the auction has closed.


9. We dispose of anything that is left over and leave your house empty and ready for the real estate agent.


10. We provide you with a complete printout of items sold and prices realized and your payment within 10 days of the close of your auction.


How long does it take?

Typically, 3-4 weeks is the best timeline for an online estate sale, but it will vary with each unique estate. The first week is for staging, including sorting cataloging and photographing the items, and the next 2-3 weeks are for running the auction. We understand that you might be on a tight schedule to get your house cleared out, and we will work with you to find a timeline that suits your needs. You can expect a period of 4-6 weeks from signing the contract to receiving your payment.


What if some of my items don’t sell?

It is possible that not all of your items will sell in the auction, or that some items in your home might not be a good fit to list in the auction. In this case, we have several options available. If you would like to consign certain items, we offer an online consignment service, allowing you to clear the items from your home while still making them available for sale. This will give you a longer timeline and wider audience, assuring that your item will find a buyer.
If you prefer donation, we can arrange for pickup by a local charity. We also offer a clean-out service, where we arrange a contracted team to remove unwanted items and dispose of them.


Is there reserve pricing?

We have found that we get better results by not setting minimums or reserves. Bidding on all items begins at $1. If you have premium items that do not fit well with this model, we offer a variety of services to accommodate your needs, such as online consignment and placement at fine auction houses.


What do I have to do?

After you have signed the contract, you can just relax – we’ll take it from there! We handle all of the advertising, sorting, photography, billing and pickup. When we’re done, you’ll have an empty house and payment within 10 days.


Can I see how much my items sold for?

Of course! You can access the auction online if you want to watch the action, or you can wait until it is over when we provide a detailed list of items sold and final prices realized.
What if I don’t live in or can’t be in the area?
Not a problem. We understand that finalizing an estate outside of your home area can be a difficult task, and we’re here to make it easier for you. There is no need for you to remain for the duration of the auction if you have obligations elsewhere. We are happy to make arrangements to suit your needs. You will be able to monitor the online auction from any location.  Ready to get started?  Please click on Contact Us and give us a call, text us, or shoot us an email!
