The question “What are the estate sale companies near me?” is often asked by people who may not realize it’s often not the right question. Hiring an estate sale company in Maryland, Virginia or Washington D.C. may not be the most strategic option for you if you’re looking to quickly sell everything in a house so that you can get it sold.
Why you shouldn’t use an estate sale company
There are a lot of reasons not to hire an estate sale company — to avoid “an estate sale company near me.”
We contend that you don’t want a thousand people or more tromping through a house you’re about to sell with little regard for your house or property. The potential damage they may do to a home simply isn’t worth it. This is true even with online estate sales because few estate sale companies provide professional staff to carry big, heavy objects out of your home. Big brown furniture isn’t likely to sell, and most of it is likely to still be sitting there after the sale. Ditto for the items requiring donation. And you’ve still got the trash to deal with. Estate sales also add to the time it takes to prepare your house for sale.
We used to run estate sales all the time and were wildly successful with them – but we staffed them more heavily than many competitors do to protect clients’ homes and properties. We rarely run them anymore, however, because they’re not worth our time, or yours.
Focus on selling your house, let us clear its contents
The money for you is in selling the house.
Don’t let dimes hold up hundreds of thousands – or millions – of dollars. Simply hire us to provide our quick and environmentally conscious estate liquidation and home cleanout service. We charge a labor fee and then quickly clear your home of everything you want out.
We sell what can be sold through auctions and specialty dealers (you get the money), take donations to charity (you get the tax donation receipt), recycle, upcycle and haul away the trash.
The average job takes two days from start to finish – then you get a check back within a few months that helps offset your labor charge. You sometimes even get more money back than you paid, meaning we’ve paid you to liquidate and clean out your entire house.
