Q & A

Is there anything I need to do to the estate?

It is best that you do not do anything to the estate, except to identify the personal items you know you want to keep.

Please do not throw anything away or donate anything. Even a piece of paper could have value!

What is the agreement of an estate liquidation?

There is no charge for us to evaluate your estate. We will meet with you to assess your needs and from there, we will determine a fee based on the size of your estate and the work involved.

Our job is to get your estate ready for a sale, or to move into. This typically involves an initial cleaning, organizing, researching, pricing, displaying items, photography, advertising, marketing, running the sale and end cleaning. Other services may involve helping you with heir distribution.

Since we are a turn-key liquidation company, we will customize your estate sale according to your specifications.

Do I need to have an estate sale?

We do not charge for a consultation, so it would be in your best interest to take advantage of our professional assessment of your estate. This way, you can decide to have an estate sale based on expert advice. Since you are not obligated to contract with us, you can opt to liquidate your estate in a different manner if you choose not to hold an estate sale. We may be able to do a buy-out, or exchange our services for the content of the home, if there is not enough to make a successful estate sale. Keep in mind that we see treasures in every house! Even if your content is valued at less than $5,000, we are still interested. We keep our overhead very low and are able to take smaller estates that may be less desirable to other liquidators.

We have different options you can consider, so give us a call and see if we have a solution for you.

How do I decide which estate liquidator to use?

When you interview different people to give your sale, keep in mind these people will be handling your family heirlooms and having full run of the home. Make sure to check references. Ask questions, in fact, make a list before hand of the questions you wish to ask. The liquidator should be happy to give advice and help you feel at ease in your decision making.

How long will it take to complete the estate sale?

With Estate Freedom, it normally takes just 14 days from start to finish, if there is not an excess amount of preliminary cleaning required (such as needing a dumpster). Please see our “Process” page to get an idea of what is done during this time period.

The actual sale day may need to be scheduled to accommodate other sales we have set up; however, we have also taken estates where we have less than 10 days to get everything done. We will look at your schedule as well as our schedule and see what time frame fits best to get your property liquidated as quickly as possible.

What happens to money, photos and personal papers found by the liquidator?

Since we are very thorough and pay our crew to search every “nook and cranny” we charge our contracted percentage only, on cash found in the estate. We return the difference directly to the family. Photos and personal papers are simply set aside, along with anything else that seems too personal to sell without permission, and have the family come and retrieve it or we will mail it to you upon request.

Can I keep items after the contract is signed?

This has come up before and it is understandable; however, when this happens, you would pay our agreed percentage only for such item(s). Items can not be removed once the advertisement has been released which is typically three to six days before the sale date, or after the photos have placed on our Web site.

Do all estate sales involve a death?

No, not at all. We have had clients who were just downsizing so they could move. We have people who go into assisted living and need their homes cleaned out to go on the market. Our services are useful for liquidating the contents of a home if there is a death in the family, or if someone is downsizing, or through probate court, bankruptcy, foreclosure, moving, or even hoarder houses clean up

Wouldn’t this just be a rummage sale?

It is a common misconception that an estate sale is just another rummage sale. An estate sale is typically years of accumulation involving the contents of the entire house; and not just a small portion of the contents.

Will the family take all the valuable items?

Another misconception of estate sales is that only junk will be left for the public to buy. This is simply not true. Families have left coins, rare toys, jewelry, war memorabilia, rare pottery and other highly collectible items.
