San Diego Estate Sales On-premise Sales of Household Effects


Appraisal
We research, evaluate, and price every saleable item in the estate. At times, it becomes necessary to consult with other appraisers and experts. We are affiliated with certified appraisal professionals; we will retain the appropriate experts at no charge to the client. These experts will assist with valuation for pricing and the best market in which to sell these specific items.

Marketing
Each sale is advertised in local newspapers and other media, including the internet. For each sale, we photograph key items and market them to our large database of customers.

Sales
We generally begin working in the home five or more days before the sale begins, depending on the size of the sale. Through organization and display, we present the material on-premise to maximize its marketibility. Jewelry and other small collectables, for example, are presented in special display cases. When necessary, crowd control procedures are provided. We will arrange for any unsold items to be donated to the charity designated by the estate thereby gaining valuble tax-deduction benefits. Upon completion of the sale, the premises is “broom cleaned”

Reporting
Upon the completion of each sale, a full written report is provided. Every item and sale price is recorded and provided to the client.
