The Estate Sale process
We have developed an estate sale process that takes all of the stress and hassle out of the picture. This process will be customized for each individual in order to meet your needs. Whether you are downsizing, liquidating a business, selling the assets of a loved one, moving, or simply redecorating, we are here to help.
Once you are ready to get started with your estate sale, we will be there to guide you through the entire process beginning to end. AES of LA will handle all the details.
Step 1 – Complimentary Consultation
We understand that every individual who calls us has a different and unique situation. We utilize the complimentary consultation as an opportunity for you to get all of your questions answered and for us to understand exactly what you are looking for so that we can customize a plan than works best for you. At this point together we will decide if an estate sale event, consignment/auction, or a combination of both best suites your needs.
Step 2 – Estate Sale Event, Consignment & Auction
If we all decide that an estate sale event best suites your needs the following steps will take place:
Schedule – Together we will schedule a date for the event. Each event usually runs between two and three days.
Staging – The goal of our team is to stage your home or business as a showroom. This provides the best shopping experience for our shoppers and in return provides the highest return for your items. Staging usually takes between five and seven days.
Pricing – Each item will be marked with a price tag. We have a team of researchers and a network of appraisers that we work with closely to ensure each of your items are being priced in accordance with today’s fair market value.
Photography – We have a professional photographer who will take extensive photos for proper advertising of the sale.
Event Staffing – All events will have a cashier, a security guard, and as many sales associates as needed.
Advertising – We have a network of people who we advertise to. We are members of several online advertising sites and publications and have established relationships with buyers from all over the world. Our extensive outreach allows us to reach a large audience.
Signage – On the day of the sale, professional signs will be strategically placed around your neighborhood to ensure maximum attendance, if the city allows.
Step 3 – Accounting and Clean-Out
In some situations our trained team will identify certain items that are better suited for consignment or auction. In these cases our team will collect these items and sell them in the appropriate manner.
Once the Estate Sale Event has ended and/or the consignment/auction has ended/closed, our CPA will prepare a full accounting detail. The accounting detail will itemize every item that was sold, the gross amount realized for each item, the total fees incurred, and the total net proceeds.
At the end of the sale our team will box up any remaining items for donation pick-up. We will schedule the donation pick-up and monitor the pick-up to ensure all items are removed from the property. Any items not accepted for donation will be disposed of. An itemized charity donation receipt will be obtained for tax purposes.
Our team is specialized and trained to take the estate sale process from start to finish. There are no upfront fees for our services. Our commission based fee is deducted from the gross total at the end of your sale. We bring the expertise and skill to make this estate sale process as simple and effective as possible.
At the end of the day, we truly care. We have a personal investment in each of our clients which is why we always take the extra step.
