Celebrating our 9th year in Business. Thank You!

How Does An Estate Sale Work?

It All Starts With an Easy and Free, No-Obligation Initial Consultation

We love answering questions! Getting you answers is a big part of the initial call. As well, during this time, we will talk about your estate and your needs from the sale. From there we will craft a plan that will meet these needs and answer any questions that you have. There is no cost to you for this meeting.  We want to make sure this is the right choice. We service Metro Atlanta as far north as Canton and Dahlonega and as far south as Fayetteville, GA.

The whole process will be protected by a contract that spells everything out so both sides are on the same team.

Some Answers

How Much Estate Sale Companies Charge?

There are as many different estate sale types and needs as there are estate sales. Each situation is independent and has different time frames.  In our first meeting, we will discuss those needs and develop pricing accordingly.

How Long Does The Process Take From Beginning to End of the Estate Sale?

On average, it takes 10-14 business days for the estate sale process from beginning to end, but every home is different. Each client’s different needs is a big factor in the time frame. Rather than focus on time, we are driven by success in meeting your estate goals as the motivating factor as much as the calendar.

You Can Keep What You’d Like

During our initial meeting please tell us any items you’d like to keep. If they cannot be moved prior to the sale, we can arrange to have them placed in a separate area during the sale. You will only have to sell items that you choose.

IMPORTANT: Stop! Don’t Throw It Out

Rule number one of estate sales is to not throw anything away! Many odd things that you think are worthless can sometimes sell at estate sales. We will take a complete inventory of all your belongings and furnishings that you do not want to keep and then help you determine your sales goals.

Reserve Pricing

We understand that some items are special. While you may set a reserve price, we do not encourage it because setting a minimum price on an item will make it less likely to attract serious buyers. However, the decision is always yours to make.

What Happens When We Do an Estate Sale Set Up?

Professional Estate Sales, LLC, and its employees will stage everything for you. We will even move items in cabinets and closets, to be in plain view. This equals better sales for you. If needed, we bring in extra tables and display surfaces.

How Do We Price Items for Estate Liquidation?

Remember that your treasures are our treasures. We research and price everything with with a careful balance between market value and your value. When it comes to art and jewelry, we consult with appraisers, as needed, to ensure maximum returns.

Are Their Any Items That Are Too Big To Sell at an Estate Sale?

Don’t worry. We can sell most items. Larger items such as cars, motorcycles, or recreational vehicles will be posted and advertised accordingly.

The Day of Your Estate Sale

We want to reach as many people as possible. Through a variety of means and our advertising network, we cast a wide net to reach estate sale enthusiasts and novices alike. If your HOA or community has specific rules on parking or crowds, please let us know so that we can work with you on those arrangements.

We Protect You

Because we want to protect you and all of your treasures, we will not release any residential information until the day prior to the sale. All our employees will be in uniform with our company name on the shirt. Each employee is dedicated to ensuring both a safe and successful sale.
