One of the first things I tell my clients is "Make it easy on yourself". Your only responsibility will be to remove all the things that you and your family would like to keep. I will ask that you go through drawers, cabinets, closets and every nook and cranny of the home, garage, attic, and any outside structures. Once you and your family have decided what you are going to keep; leave the rest just like it is! In most cases you do not have to clean or dispose of what you might consider to be trash; you would be surprised at the things that have some value! Once you have removed the things you are keeping, we will go through the entire home including any outside structures (we will clean up as we go). Once we have gathered everything to be sold we will then professionally stage and price the items. We will advertise the sale which will be open to the public and typically lasts 3 to 4 days depending on the amount of inventory. If your goal is a clean, empty house; we will arrange for a buyout of any remaining contents or have a charity of your choice pick up any left-over items. Finally, we will go back through and dispose of any trash in the home, vacuum/sweep/mop the floors and wipe down all counter tops before returning your keys to a clean empty home!
Our in town average rate is 35% of the total proceeds of the sale. There are no upfront costs. However; it is very rare that I will charge a clean-up fee, but if the condition of the home requires a lot of extra cleaning, it may be necessary to charge a small fee but it will be agreed upon before signing the contract. The fee, if any, will also be taken from the proceeds. Please note that out of town rates may vary slightly.
