At North Shore Estate Sales our goal is to make a stressful and emotional time less so by removing many of the burdens of liquidating a home, while generating a financial return for the sale of your personal property. If you have items that are gently used, contacting me could be the answer to a difficult situation. Before you discard items you think nobody would buy, let me come to the estate to give you a free consultation. You might be surprised to find there is value to the old saying, “One person’s junk is another’s treasure.”
If you don’t live on the North Shore, you need not be on-site for me to do a walk through of the house nor for the sale. I just need access, so if a neighbor or realtor can let me in, that will do. It doesn’t take long. I will then contact you via phone or email and give you the same information I would if you were here. Everything can be done via the internet, including the contract.
Our Commitment to You
What is an estate sale?
Tag Sale-Estate Sale: The most common reason for an estate sale is the death of the property owner, and the consequent need to quickly liquidate the deceased's belongings. The survivors may have no interest in the bulk of the personal belongings left by the deceased, or may simply lack space to keep the belongings. In situations in which the survivors cannot agree to the disposition of tangible property, a court may order the goods to be sold in an estate sale with the proceeds to be divided among the survivors. Such a sale and division may also be mandated in the will of the deceased. An estate sale may also occur because the property owner will be moving or has moved into a situation where he will be unable to keep his property—for example, a move to an assisted living facility, a retirement community, a rest home, or other living quarters.
