Estate Sales

Orion


Worried about a pending move to a smaller home and need to part with an entire house full of items? Stressed about suddenly dealing with a family member’s home and prized possessions? Let Orion’s Attic host an estate sale for you. Our estate sales serve residents of Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. We do all the work – researching and pricing your treasures, staging your home for the event and conducting the sale itself. You simply return home and pick up your cash. In short, we pay you to clean out your house for you!

 

Our recent sales have generated from $5,000 to $45,000 and included antiques, art, modern furniture, collectibles, jewelry, coins, gold, silver, automobiles, memorabilia, vintage toys, household items and more. 

 

There are a lot of great reasons to hire us for your estate sale and you will see the Orion’s Attic difference in a lot of ways. We:


· Run a full-service firm that clears all of the contents of your home through a combination of an estate sale plus other services as needed for remaining items – buy-outs, consignment, junk removal and charitable donations to nonprofit organizations. You hire us and return to an empty home.


· Get the job done quickly.


· Conduct high-energy, wildly popular sales that draw huge crowds of enthusiastic buyers.


· Price all items competitively to motivate shoppers.


· Staff events with a large labor force that removes heavy or bulky items and carries them to buyers’ vehicles. Shoppers are much more likely to buy those items when they see that we have the muscle to move them.

 

· Rescue a lot of items that homeowners often overlook, enabling us to generate additional sales and donations – which also prevents the items from going into the trash. 

 

Buy-Outs


Got stuff to sell? Wondering what to do with a home, attic, or storage locker full of things sitting there collecting dust? Got a particular collection of items you would like to sell quickly? From genuine autographs to Zippo lighters, we can handle it all.

 

Consignment


If an estate sale or buy-out isn’t a good fit, consignment might be. We work with a limited number of clients to consign items. We charge a commission plus a removal/transportation fee if the items require use of our truck.

 

Clean-outs/Junk Removal


Sometimes the contents of a home may be too far gone to be sold. Owners and estate executors simply need their properties emptied. Our junk removal services spring into action and leave you with an empty home that’s ready to be renovated, sold or demolished. Our skill at finding salvageable items that can be sold or donated often helps off-set the removal costs, making us an extremely attractive option for people with clutter-filled homes or buildings. We have done a number of combination jobs that started and ended with junk removal services and an estate sale in between – with homeowners getting back more money from the estate sale than they paid us for the junk removal.
