Estate Sales

Liquidating a home after the loss of a loved one or planning a move for an elderly parent is a time-consuming and emotionally difficult job. Home, furniture, documents, and a lifetime of possessions must be dealt with. Loved ones often have questions such as:

  • How will I clear out all of this stuff?
  • Can I sell any of this?
  • Should I try to have my own estate sale?
  • Are there companies that could do this for me?

Luckily, just one phone call to Blue Sky Estate Services will get you the help you need. We’ll be your on-site advisor, freeing up your time for family, work, and life.

What Is An Estate Sale?

An estate sale is a sale conducted at your home to sell all of the contents inside it. This will include everything in the house from clothes, furniture and household goods, to cars, patio furniture, and garage items. Estate sale professionals will go through all of your possessions, estimate their value, then arrange, display, and price everything that will go into the sale. Furthermore, they will absorb the expense of managing the actual sale itself including difficult tasks like crowd control, security, and marketing. The company works off a percentage of the items sold and your home is completely cleared out at the end of the sale.

A common misconception when people use the term estate sale is there must be items of high value involved in the sale. The average home has a lifetime of accumulation of what most people will call “stuff.” We always recommend not throwing out or selling anything until we have had a chance to assist. The assessment of your loved one’s items can make a difference in how much you are able to recover from the sale of the estate assets. Your loved one’s possessions do not have to be of high value in order to have a professional estate sale from which you can profit and, at the same time, have the whole home cleared out.

What If Our Home Doesn’t Have Any Items Of Great Value?

If there are not enough items for a traditional estate sale, there are other options available. We can coordinate with companies that offer “buyouts” in which a company makes an offer to you that includes buying and removing all of the items. We also work with various charities to assist in the removal of household items.

We can also provide “clear out” services in which a company comes in and removes all items of no value, donating anything acceptable to charities. This still provides a tax benefit that can exceed the cost of the clear out.
