Help with Estates & Clearance of Contents
We are Estate Services Experts!
Being an executor of an estate that involves a home full of contents can be overwhelming and it can take a toll emotionally, especially if the person that has died is a close family member, relative or friend. Executors and families are often left with a set of time consuming tasks that they’re not accustomed to dealing with.
We Ensure Privacy for the Homeowner, Executor and / or Trustee.
Total Estate Services will help you through the entire process in a timely manner, with as little disruption in your day to day life as possible. As an estate trustee and / or executor you are responsible for resolving all the physical aspects of the estate and ensuring that every reasonable opportunity to generate income for the estate sale is explored. There are several ways to address the sale of content with minimal disruption to the family.
We Manage the Liquidation, Sale or Retail of All Valuable Goods on the Property
Online sales, sales direct from the property, off site consignment and the sale of contents lots (groupings of like content) to third party buyers are just a few of the ways we approach this. It becomes a matter of those responsible having comfort around whichever process or processes work best for the estate. Laws make the executor liable for not realizing the maximum return on items for other vested persons. Higher end specialty items such as art / collector pieces should be appraised by companies specializing in these areas (we can help with this). The reality is the majority of homes are filled with everyday items of various quality that have a broad range of resale value and generally a balanced multi-process approach works best.
Typically third party buyers and tax receipt eligible donating is a very good combination for quick resolution and revenue generation.
