The process of finding the right kind of support for managing an estate can be challenging. There are several responsibilities and a tremendous amount of decisions to be made on how to handle it. Will you hold on to the estate or try to sell it? Will you maintain the home and leave it in your family for the years to come? Will you need to hire a team to financially and legally do it all?
These are just some of the decisions that you will have to make, and we know there are many more questions to come. If you have made it to this page, you are perhaps wondering if an estate sale or liquidation of the items within the home is right for you. For our neighbors in Long Grove, we can assist with estate sales or liquidation style sales depending on what your needs are. Here is a look at our white glove service, which we have broken down into five steps.
Long Grove Estate Sales
Schedule a Consultation – In your free consultation with us, we will meet you at the estate and tour the property. This is a good time for us to ask questions about the contents and for you to do the same. We can give you an on the spot assessment as to what we feel you could see in profits.
Planning and Setting Up – During this part of the process, we will get a clear picture of what items will and won’t be sold and identify specific buyers who will need to be contacted for the sale date. Together, we will choose an estate event day and start marketing that to our network and online resources. This includes advertising and one on one outreach efforts. We will also plan for the estate sale day and bring in things like racks and display cases that will add credibility and professionalism to the sale.
Sale Date – When the day arrives, we will have a team of estate professionals monitor the site and make themselves available to buyers for questions and transactions. This includes keeping impeccable records as to what sells and managing buyers throughout the event period.
Clear Out The Estate – Once the sale ends, we will manage the entire clean out of the estate, so you are not left with the items that didn’t sell. This means we can arrange for charitable drop-offs to your preferred organizations or have others come to pick things up. We will also gather, package, and manage any shipping or delivery of items.
Close Out – Once all the transactions, paperwork and estate is cleared out, we will go over the results of the sale. We will hand you all the transactional documents, tax deduction paperwork, and a check for the profit of your Long Grove estate sale.
This gives you a basic look into how we organize a sale, work with our clients, and how the process works. We are always very professional and respectful during the entire partnership. If you’re ready to work with North Shore Estate Sales for your project, contact us today to get started.
