What is an Estate or Downsizing Sale
An estate sale and a downsizing sale are different and similar at the same time. An estate sale can be established when someone has passed or is living and there is a need to remove all contents from their home. Many people choose this option when they have lost a family member or have moved a family member into some sort of specialized care facility. Once all friends or family members have taken possession of the items that hold special meaning to them the remainder of the personal property can be sold on the family’s behalf.
A downsizing sale most commonly occurs when someone is moving and they will reside in a home smaller than the one they are currently living or someone is moving to an area some distance away and want to avoid extra weight charges for the move. Either way most downsizing sales consist of items the family either no longer has space for or doesn’t want to take with them to their new home.
Rooms Remembered offers two types of sales, one is a physical onsite sale where shoppers will come into your home and shop for housewares and furniture. The physical sale typically leaves your house as is with the exception of cleaning out all drawers and closets and disposing of unsalable items. Small items may be rearranged to enhance the flow of shoppers and stage the house for an optimal shopping experience. We take great care in keeping your home clean and unharmed, while offering shoppers a safe environment.
An online sale is done in an online auction platform. Rooms Remembered, as a consultant and liquidator, will help you decide what items you may want to sale for best profit. We also do all necessary research to support market value of the items you decide to sell. We are responsible for assigning lots to be auctioned and setting reserves on special and elite items. We will photograph and post all lots on a dedicated site and handle all payments and distribution of won lots. Winning bidders can pickup items at the home or offsite depending on the needs of the client. Some items may have the option to be shipped and we will also take care of that. Some situations call for us to piggy-back the sales (we conduct both a physical sale and an online auction) In this case one platform acts as advertising and support for the other sale.
