Most estate sales will run about 30-35% of the total sale. Some sales are higher and some are lower depending on the quantity and quality of items in the estate. Keep in mind that this is an all-inclusive fee covering labor, advertising, supplies, and other costs associated with the sale.
It depends on the size and amount of necessary research for the particular estate. Most estates run $50-$75 an hour but can be higher. In addition, to estate sales, we do this service in Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg.
There are two main reasons why you should hire an estate sale company you trust. First, handling an estate is already a stressful process Hiring a professional company can ease the burden and allow you to focus on other things with handling the estate. Second, the expertise and pricing is key. Many people undervalue or overvalue their items when they attempt to do the estate sales themselves.
COVID has been a real stick in the mud but we are constantly mindful about keeping our staff, customers, and clients healthy. Hand sanitizer is mandatory for customers entering your property for the sale. Face masks are also mandatory and strictly enforced. In addition we limit the number of people entering the property at one time for any of our estate sales in Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg, Florida.
Most estate sales take two weeks from beginning to end. Week one focuses on setting up, pricing, staging, and photographing the items. Week two focuses on the advertising getting out, emails sent, and the actual conducting of the sale.

We can arrange several different options depending on your needs if items do not sell in the estate sale. Many times the client chooses to donate items to a favorite charity, while other times we have offers for a total buyout. Rest assured if you want your estate free from any items, we will make sure that happens for you.
Once all funds have cleared the bank, a check will either be mailed or hand delivered from the proceeds of your estate sale. Expect to receive the check within 7-10 days after the sale. Many times it is much quicker than that.
Absolutely not. You may be throwing out potential sellable items! If we can get a quarter out of it, we will sell it. Let us make that decision. I've seen clients lose potential gold mines for their estate sale by throwing out things they thought were junk!
