Estate Sales

Keys to House for Estate SaleHunt & Peck is branching out Hunt & Peck offers an Estate Sale service through our parent company, Nova Liquidation, LLC.

While Nova Liquidation typically performs estate buyouts, there are times when an estate sale is more advantageous for the client. Estates that are good candidates for a successful sale have the following attributes:

  1. Pieces that include high-end contemporary designer furniture.
  2. Such items sell better within the communities and neighborhoods they sit because the homes and local tastes are similar.
  3. If your home has large, oversized furniture, so does your neighbor etc…
  4. The home sits in a desirable neighborhood among similar, well furnished homes
  5.  Access to ample parking. Estate sales draw hundreds of people and parking is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL!
  6.  A flexible time table that would allow time for a proper setup and final cleanout.
  7. Enough content to insure a sale will produce at least $10,000 in expected gross receipts.

If your home meets these criteria, then we can help. Otherwise a buyout from Nova Liquidation is your better choice.

HOW IS IT DONE?

An estate sale is an sales event that takes place inside the home that is open to the public for a limited time. The estate sale agent is responsible for organizing and pricing items in the home, advertising the sale, hosting the sale during an agreed time period, and providing a cleanout solution for the owner upon conclusion.

For this service, the sales agent charges the estate a commision.

Most sales take about one week to organize some time prior to the sale, and sales are usually held Friday-Sunday, with Sunday as the discount day.

Once the sale is over, Nova Liquidation will either purchase the remaining contents if there is remaining value, or will charge the estate to empty the property.

Simple.
