I’m going to walk you through the estate liquidation process that we deal with everyday in situations such as yours. Hopefully, this will leave you feeling more knowledgeable and relaxed about what it is that you are about to go through. Panic and worry seem to melt away once you are informed and well read about the procedures that we liquidators go through to ready your home and personal items for complete liquidation prior to emptying your home for you.
Assessing the home
To begin with, Larry and or crew members will visit your home or the residence in question. We will walk through and do a thorough review of the contents and reach a decision as to whether or not to proceed with an estate sale. Should your contents not be enough for a sale, we will help you with a small sale you can do. If its not worth the time we will put you in contact with a reputable and caring local charity which will best suit your needs, where your families belongings can be best used and appreciated by those who have little or nothing of their own.
In the case of the home having well enough content to actually proceed with a sale, now is the time for us to agree on a commission and negotiate the contract, and sign such to begin our work in order to liquidate your estate. We don’t like to waste either of our time in beating around the bush to decide when and where; it is best that you are ready when you call us to interview our company, so that you can make an informed decision on who will best fit your needs. We like that you choose us with an open and educated mind and that you will always be happy with the finished product, and that you did in fact make the right decision.
After setting a date for the sale to be held (at least seven to ten days after contract signatures) we will ask to have a key and full run of the home to work in day or night, depending on how much there is to do. We will then begin to unearth, clean, sort, photograph, research, and market your items for sale.
Within a few days we will send out an email invitation of what is available in your estate to our trusted clients and loyal following. We shall send an additional email or more during the four days prior to the pre-sale, adding any significant items we find during the rest of the week. The mailing and flier information are costs we share from the gross proceeds of the sale itself, as well as any print ads. This will all come out of our pocket and be reimbursed at the end of the sale from the proceeds, leaving the result of the net sale to be divvied up between the owner and Commonwealth Antiques
Now comes the time for the sale once everything is in order and looking it’s best. In order to make the sale the best it can be, we ask that nothing be removed from the sale after our crew comes to work on the house, save personal items which we have set aside for your family, any monies found, fine jewelry we will ask if you would like to keep, as well as coin collections and guns or extremely valuable family heirlooms. We don’t want anyone to regret selling something that was part of their family and they are unable to replace. We want the end result to be a happy and contented one, never one of worry.
Finishing with pride
Our goal is three fold; to make this process as painless as possible; allowing us to do the hard word and show respect for the memory of the deceased, to enable our clients to find magnificent items to add to their collection at a fair and decent price, and in the end to make a living from a business we love being a part of in every way. With these things in mind, we do our best to please all of the people we deal with, while holding tight to our integrity and following our hearts with the knowledge that we are doing the best job we are able and earning a track record we can be proud of.
This is my promise to you:
We are very concerned about your satisfaction. We will do everything in our power to make this as painless as possible and as good of an experience as can be. We want you to be so happy that in the end you will write us a testimonial to use on our site for future visitors to read and learn from.
