Additional Information



Q:  What is the advantage of an estate sale compared to a garage sale or auction?

A:  An auction only gives your items a

short amount of time on the market

unlike an estate sale that gives your

items 2-4 days on the market.  Our

staff is experienced in pricing a variety

of merchandise and know the current market

value in the Nashville area.

Q:  What are the fees?

A:  We work on commission only.  A percentage of the total sales generally  between 35-40  percent depending on amount of clean up, advertising and distance.  Some additional services are offered as well such as trash pick-up and haul away fee after the sale, depending on your needs.

Q:  What happens to the leftover items from the sale?

A:  During the sale we will be discussing  the progress of the sale and present options for you as it closes.  We can connect you with other organizations such as Goodwill for tax deductible donations or consign your items for a future sale.

Q:  What do I do during the sale?

A:  Before the sale, we ask you to remove or separate the items you do not wish to sell. Please do not throw or give anything away as our staff is trained in finding value in often overlooked treasures. Then you walk away and let our staff do all the work.  Your presence at the sale is not necessary as often times it can be an emotional experience for the client. 

Q:  When do I get paid from the sale?

A:  Approximately 5-10 business days from the closing of the sale.  You will be given a briefing each day of the sale's progress and a categorized list with your closing statement.

Q:  Why do I have to sign a contract?

A:  Both parties benefit in an agreement of terms and conditions before the sale to insure the efficiency of the entire process.  We know this can be a difficult time in your life and loved ones.  A clearly defined contract will keep the sale on course and insure that expectations are met by both parties.
