Frequently Asked Questions


Who needs the services of Respectfully Yours? Estate Liquidators/Consultants

  • Family members or relatives who have a probated or non-probated estate, which needs to be liquidated.
  • Individuals downsizing or relocating a residence and who wish to liquidate all or some of the household contents.
  • People going through a divorce, separation or major lifestyle change resulting in the need to sell possessions.

When Estate Sales are usually held:

  • The sale itself is usually conducted on a weekend, and most often will include Thursday, Friday & Saturday. However, each sale is unique and the hours and days are determined accordingly. Larger sales may include additional days and hours.

Why Should I have an Estate Sale?

  • Having an estate sale on-site will bring in more money from the sale of the personal property than by any other means of liquidation. Your items are more appealing and sell better when they are displayed in an appropriate atmosphere. An on-site sale offers the convenience of no packing and no moving, both of which can result in damage to assets.

How is advertising handled?

  • Newspaper Ads, E-Mails to more than 1,000 people, sale flyer distribution, Craig’s List, and phone calls. Included in the information are brief descriptions of the estate contents, the date, location and time of the sale. We have an extensive list of collectors, dealers, designers, & retail customers.

 

Why Should I hire Respectfully Yours, Estate Liquidators/Consultants?

  • Premier Estate Liquidators, LLC, serves as the administrator of the sale of all items included and will work to bring in collectors, dealers and buyers willing to pay the best prices. Identification of and placing a value on antiques, collectibles and household items, coupled with a knowledge of the best fair-market value for merchandise take study and experience. It involves continual research. In short, it takes a full-time professional who specializes in this work. Our qualified staff provides you with just that experience. The extra money an experienced agent can realize for you from just a few items, priced right, can sometimes pay the entire commission charged for the sale.

How Much Will it Cost to have an Estate Sale?

  • It will cost nothing out of pocket. Estate sale professionals usually charge a commission based on the size of the sale, how much work will be involved to prepare and run the sale and whether or not there will be travel expenses should the sale be located in a city outside normal range of operation. A comfortable range for commission on a sale is between 35% and 40%.

How Long Does it take to Prepare a Sale?

  • A good estate sale professional will be able to keep preparation time to a minimum, usually one – two weeks for an average size sale. Some sales require more time depending on the quantity of merchandise. Time is required for sorting, pricing, displaying, and advertising deadlines. It ensures that everything is organized and displayed appropriately before the sale begins.

What is Done with Things that Do Not Sell?

  • At the completion of the sale, the remaining items are disposed of per arrangemenst made ahead of time between the owner and the agent. In cases where items are donated to a charity, agent will supply, to the owner, a receipt used for tax deduction purposes.

 

Do I Need to Be Present During the Sale?

An owner is certainly welcome to be present. However, most agents will agree that it seems easier for family to stay away. This is a very emotional time and it is just less painful to not witness the sale of treasured items. The owner’s presence at the sale can be intimidating for customers and, in fact rarely helps to increase the proceeds from the sale.

Estate Sale Items that Do Not Sell

Estate Sale/Liquidation Cost

The “Menu of Services” includes doing the entire estate sale for a commission or helping you prepare/price when you wish to host your own sale.

Commission Sales are charged a percentage based on the size of the sale, how much work is involved to prepare and run the sale and whether or not there will be travel expenses. Percentages are normally around 35%-40%.  We take care of everything and there is usually no out of pocket expense to you.

For those hosting their own sale, an hourly fee is charged in preparation and/or pricing.

REMEMBER:  The difference between a professional pricing and a novice pricing can be hundreds of dollars for one item.  At one family-hosted- estate sale a doll was purchased for $10.00 that was worth $700.00.  Another sale sold several pieces of Van Briggle Pottery for 50 cents; the pottery was worth $35.00 – $250.00 each.

Don’t let that happen to you.
