Downsizing or liquidating an estate can be a daunting task. Whether you’re the owner, executor of an estate, heir, fiduciary or attorney, you’ll want to start by speaking with an experienced, licensed, bonded, and insured professional. Taking advantage of ezDownsizing.com’s free in-home consultation service will provide you with information and recommendations tailored to your particular circumstances. Our services range from appraising the property within the residence, to taking a few items on consignment, to liquidating the entire contents of the home and leaving it completely empty and broom swept in preparation for transition of the property.
Online estate sale auctions have become increasingly popular due to their ability to reach a wider audience while fulfilling the needs of the seller by completely liquidating all items for sale and leaving the residence almost completely empty! There is no need to open the home or residence to hundreds of shoppers, as individuals who are interested in particular items can conveniently search online and competitively bid on them from their phone or computer. At the conclusion of the online auction process (typically about 10 days), winning bidders show up according to schedule and remove the items they’ve won. We do all the work by taking photos of the items to be sold, cataloging them, writing the descriptions, uploading the auction to the internet, advertising, and providing staff to direct and assist buyers in safely removing the items they’ve won. The benefits of an online auction over a traditional estate sale include:
