HOW WE’RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Like so many of us with elderly parents, I had to move my mother into Assisted Living and found myself overwhelmed at the thought of emptying out her way-too-crowded home 1200 miles away from where I lived. But I also wanted to do right by her and get the best price I could for her possessions. All it took was one phone call to Chicago Estate Advisors and all the stress disappeared. Deborah and her team handled every aspect of the process efficiently, professionally and with great sensitivity. They came to the house and carefully reviewed everything with us. Literally, all we had to do was sign a contract, set aside any items we wanted to keep and tell them where to send the proceeds. .They did a great job of publicizing the sale online and in the area, they drew on their network of buyers, their store and their experience - the result was way more money than if I had tried to do it myself. I recommend them highly!
How long does it take to prepare for an Estate Sale?Typically, one week to research, sale pricing, appraisals, photograph and advertising, marketing setting up, hiring of security staff and list items to be sold during the Estate sale.
Can an item be removed once a contract has been signed?No. Once a contract has been signed, nothing can be removed. The determination of the Estate Sale is based on commissions and each item is factored into the projected commissions.
Do I need insurance on the property?No contract will be signed if a current insurance declaration is not provided.
Do I need to own an Estate for an Estate Sale?No. Most estate sales or liquidation occur when a family member passes away, or when someone is moving.
Will security be present during the days of the Estate Sales?Depending on the how valuable the items are and how large the premises is, will decide how many sales associates and security is needed.
