In-Person Estate Sale Service
Here at East-Wing Estate Sales, specialize in Estate liquidation services through in person estate sales & auctions. We are a group of very experienced and professional estate liquidators, who offer the most professionally run, and profitable estate liquidation services in the state. Here's how we work step by step!
Step 1 - FREE in home appraisal: The first step would be to have us come into the home for a free appraisal. This will give us the opportunity to look over the estate contents in person. From there, we will be able to assist you with what items are of value, and give a verbal estimate as to the value of the estate. This also gives you the chance to sit down with us and discuss any & all of the questions you may have about the process, and how our company works. After the appraisal is over, we will provide you with a quote for the costs of our services. If you decide to use our services.
Step 2 - Contract Signing: If after the in home appraisal process, you have decided that our company is the right fit for your needs. We then sit down with you to go over our contract. Together we will go over the contract, in person prior to signing, to ensure that everything is as clear as can be to everyone involved. This is both for your protection, as well as ours. The contract will detail exactly that we will be doing in the home, and how much our commission fees will be, in writing for you to see very clearly.
Step 3 - Our Fee's: At East-Wing Estate Sales we like to keep things as simple as possible. Our fees for running your sale are taken as one flat rate. Fees are based off a percentage of the sales proceeds. We do not ask for any additional money, down payments, or retainers to run the sale. Our commission rates are depending on the size of the estate, and the amount of labor that will be required to get everything ready. These rates typically range from 25% to 35%. Included in that fee, is any labor required for both the set up, and running of the sale. All of the advertising expenses are covered as well, plus any and all other expenses needed to run a quality, and profitable sale! We do not have any hidden fees, no upfront costs, and no surprises around the corner. That one commission covers it all.
Step 4 - The Set-Up: We start working to get everything setup around 2 weeks (14 days) prior to the starting date of the estate sale. Myself and our staff will then work to both display, research, price, and clean up the entire house. We do not operate like most companies do, we will set up your sale to be presented as high end retail shop, where each and every item gets properly displayed and priced. We will remove any and all items from Attics, basements, cabinets, drawers, and anywhere things may be hiding. Everything we find gets displayed throughout the home like an antique store. Once we have the items displayed, we work tirelessly to ensure that each item gets thoroughly researched, and our asking prices accurately reflect that items fair market value. Our team of expert estate specialists will be able to value almost any item accurately, so you can rest assured that your getting the most that you can out of your estate. Anything we touch, and everything we go through is handled with great care, and attention to detail. Because at the end of the day, you are trusting us with your precious belongings, so we want to be sure every item is treated with the utmost respect!
Step 5 - The running of the sale: The sale will be run on a weekend of your choice that works most convenient with your schedule. At that time we will staff the home with experienced and trusted workers. Who will watch over items, help customers, and push to sell sell sell! All of the money is collected by one of the managers at our company, at one location in the home, to ensure a secure and accurate sale. We keep detailed records of each and every purchase that is made, on a organized sheet that lists a description of the item, and how much we sold it for. After the sale all of this information is provided to you. We do this to help ensure total transparency and trust with our clients. Our system can typically liquidate any size estate within those 3 days, with most of our clients being blown away by how much gets sold!
Step 6 - After the sale: When the sale is completed, and all the customers have left. We will try to get all the remaining items moved into one location in the home. Then we clean up any trash, clutter, or other items that are out and about. This is to ensure that you come back to a relatively clean house.
