Contract Process

         All contracts are thoroughly reviewed to clarify all expectations. The contract process reviews many of these important points:

  1. Scope of work involved

  2. Square footage of the estate sale project

  3. Projected revenue of the estate sale

  4. Commission includes advertising on the Internet, set-up, and research, pricing, and performing the estate sale.

  5. Post-estate sale options include a buy-out of the remainder, or donation of unsold items, and detailed clean up.

  6. Complete clean out of the premises including attics, garages, and out buildings as well as vacuuming and cleaning the residence upon exit of the premises for a small fee.

  7. Determining a weekend date for the event and how many days the sale will be.

  8. No cash upfront from clients. Commission withdrawn from proceeds.

  9. Settlement of proceeds of the estate sale.

  10. The estate is paid within 14 business days of the completion of the estate sale. Most of the time you get it the following week after the sale!

  11. Usually at the time of signing, client provides keys to premises as well as any alarm codes. If we need to do via email we can also arrange that.

12.  Clients are reminded of the importance of the removal of all pertinent personal documents and photos. In situations where this is not possible or convenient for a client (such as an attorney or an out-of-town client), we will box up pertinent paperwork and photos on behalf of others.
