We do it in 3 Steps:
Everyone has a different and unique situation when needing to have an estate sale. We understand that for most families, having to do away with your prized possessions can be a difficult time for everyone involved. We like to schedule a free consultation as an opportunity to answer all of your questions and come up with a personal and individualized plan. Best of all, our team handles the entire estate sale process, from beginning to end, leaving you free to handle other matters. There are no fees up front for our services. Our commission is deducted from the gross total of the estate sale. Old Pueblo Estate Sale gets 35% and the client gets 65%. We bring our expertise to make the estate sale process as simple as possible.
Preparing for the One-Day Estate Sale Event
Our main goal is to stage your home in order to provide customers with a great shopping experience. Staging usually takes between five and 10 days, depending on the size of the estate. We research and price every single item in accordance with today’s fair market value. Where do we advertise? Old Pueblo Estate Sales is a member of ESTATESALES.NET which allows us to reach a large audience of people looking for estate sales. We also advertise on Facebook, Instagram and on our website at www.oldpuebloestatesales.com On the day of the estate sale event, we place professional signs around your home neighborhood where the estate sale will take place to ensure maximum attendance.
Accounting Summary and Clean-Out
After the one-day estate sale event, we prepare an accounting summary. The accounting summary includes the gross amount, the total fees incurred, taxes paid to the State of Arizona, and the total net proceeds to you and Old Pueblo Estate Sales. We meet with you after everything has been cleared at the bank, and provide you with the proceeds of the estate sale in the form of a Cashier’s Check, which takes about 3 to 5 days after the estate sale. At the end of the estate sale event, our team will box up any remaining items for a buyout or donation pick-up. We schedule the donation pick-up and monitor the pick-up to ensure all items are removed from the property. A donation receipt will be obtained and given to you for tax purposes.
