Estate Sale Set-Up, Staging, What To Expect

setting up the saleEvery estate sale company works differently, but make sure when you are signing the contract with the estate sale company you have chosen that you have discussed when the company will be coming to work in the property. Some estate liquidators include that in in their contract.

Most estate sales can be staged in 4-5 days, however, it depends on how much there is, the sorting to be done, research needed (if any) and the type of items to be sold.

Estate Sales News has visited some sales this year that required 3 weeks or more. Chef Carl’s Sale – The Pizza Gourmet for example.

It is especially important if you are working with an estate sale company that conducts more than one sale at a time. If everyone is aware of the time frame it helps to keep all parties satisfied and informed.

If you are still living in the property be sure you discuss the process thoroughly with your estate liquidator. The less stress for you and all concerned the better.

Most companies will come with a variety of supplies for the set-up and we will cover that later this week.

And one more thing. Don’t throw anything out! Let the estate sale company sort thorough to see what can be sold. You may be pleasantly surprised.
