Estate Sales Supreme, LLC
Estate Sales Supreme, LLC opened 3 years ago. Since that time, we have conducted numerous sales with over 2/3 of those sales being 100% liquidations. We take pride in providing fast results to those in need of a liquidation. As a client with us, you may expect your payment within 3 business days from the closing of the sale. That is a service we have offered from day one.
What type of services are available?
Our company offers tag sales, appointment sales, and private sales as the primary source of selling. We include internet sales, preliminary sales, and estate buy-outs, as part of the overall process of liquidating your estate through the form of a tag sale.
What is an estate sale?
It is a sale which takes place in the home or location of items being sold. The furnishings and items are organized and displayed for shoppers to view. Each item is tagged with a suggested price. Our sales usually take place in a three day span. Prices are created on condition and value of the item. Some items are harder to sell than others, so if it is not an antique or valuable piece, it is priced according to a reasonable going rate. Our intention is to provide a service with a quick turnaround, but also provide a 100% buy-out.
How does our company make money?
Our company makes a percentage of the sale. You can expect to receive all proceeds within 3 business days after the closing of the sale. We never expect any money up front. We are paid at the end of the sale.
How we decide on a sale.
Not everyone qualifies for an estate sale. When we choose a home to conduct a sale in, we consider some factors; location, timing of sale, and contents. Household contents, location, safety of household, local events, and weather conditions can make or break a sale. We want your sale to be successful. People attend the events that are easy to find and within reasonable travel distance. If there are major productions going on such as a craft show then turnout may be slim. If we have dangerous forecasts at the time of the sale, then it will also eliminate high sales. Making sure the home does not have safety issues is important, as well as making sure that the home is full enough to bring the public in.
For those who do not meet estate sale qualifications:
We do offer services to assist those who either do not qualify due to unsafe conditions of home, location is too far out to activitely engage in a large turnout, or the items would not attract a crowd. We will be happy to discuss those options with you. Most times, after the phone consultation, we will know what direction to move in.
When shopping for an estate liquidator, we recommend centering your questions on what you are looking to achieve. It may not be necessary to physically meet with several companies, but it is certainly worth the effort to contact a couple by phone. You will find that most of what you want to know, can be discussed by phone. Once you feel comfortable with the knowledge you have gained, set up an in home visit so that the company you are interested in can see if they are able to assist with your plans.
You can expect a contract for your protection and the protection of the company. Maybe you are wondering why a contract is necessary. It is always best to have a written document signed by both parties to ensure the sale takes place as discussed.
Companies may vary in their percentage. Our company will disclose all information concerning pricing and percentage pay-off during the sit down interview.
At the present time, we are not taking consignment pieces. However, when weighing your options for selling your items, please remember that consigning out your items takes longer to sell than it possibly will in a three day estate sale. Once items are removed from the location, it presents several drawbacks as opposed to advertising to sell those same items within the home it is located. With consignment, the items in demand are sold right off the top, then the items of some interest are sold over a span of time (6 - 12 months), and then there are the items that were not of interest which are still lingering behind. In an estate sale, it takes all that time out of the process, and whatever is not sold during the three day sale, goes to the buyer at the end. So, when deciding what to do with the contents of your home, keep that in mind.
If for some reason, we are not able to assist you with your estate, we will disclose the reason why. Again, not all estates produce the ideal scenario, but we try hard to make the arrangements possible for most situations.
Questions you may be asked by the estate liquidator when you call:
How soon do you need the sale?
Are you living in the home, if so, when will you be out?
Does the air, water, heat, etc. function?
Is there mold present?
Does every room consist of furnishings?
What type of furniture do you have?
Is there enough parking space?
What is the structure of the home?
Is there any spot which is unsafe for the public?
All of these questions are relevant to knowing if your location and time of need will produce a good sale. We welcome any questions you may have in deciding if we can be of assistance taking care of your estate.
