When it comes to liquidating items leftover after a relocation, there are several formats that HomeWise can use to help. One of them is having an estate / garage sale at the client's home.
After meeting with Helen, it was determined that her items would sell best at an in-person estate sale. She had a wide range of items, but not a very large number of them, so she chose to have the HomeWise team price the items (with her input) and facilitate the sale with advertising, online marketing, and cleaning out the remaining items after the sale.
In preparing for the sale, our team brought tables and tablecloths for displaying the items for sale. We priced each individual item and worked closely with the client to be sure she was satisfied with the prices. We also photographed the items so that we could advertise them online on several websites and social media.
During the sale, the HomeWise team kept track of all of the sales, gave regular updates to the client, and answered any questions from potential buyers. By the end of the sale, only a few items were left, which the client chose to have us donate to a local thrift store.
After the sale, we helped Helen finish cleaning out her home and getting the remaining items either moved or donated. The charges that the client incurred from our company included a flat fee for advertising and marketing the sale, plus an hourly rate for the facilitation of the sale. Helen is now happily living in her new condo and is pleased with her downsizing experience.
Do you know someone like Helen? The HomeWise team is available to help with organizing, downsizing, and liquidating, and each client needs a different combination of these services. Many people may be overwhelmed about starting the process, but you can trust us to see you through from start to finish.
