All consultations are complimentary, confidential, and scheduled at your convenience. During this time we will discuss all of our services and educate you as to what items can be sold and discuss in detail all of the services we will provide.
If there is not enough to warrant a sale, we will be up-front and honest about it. Although many other estate sale companies will happily charge a substantial fee for a sale regardless of its success, we do not. We want this to be a positive experience that will be beneficial to us all.
Once we engage as partners for your sale, one of the first things we will do is select the date and determine if we will hold a 2 or 3-day sale. We ask that you please do not turn off electricity and water, or cancel homeowners insurance.
One to two weeks prior, our team will spend 2-3 days (longer depending on the amount of merchandise) in your home performing the key activities that will create impacts such as organizing, optimal pricing, and professional staging and display of your items.
We will provide you with a computer printout of items sold. Items over $50.00 are listed individually with items for less listed within a "miscellaneous" category. We will obtain any permits if needed. Nevada sales taxes are collected on sale items.
We utilize multiple strategies including marketing your sale through our website and professional street signage to advertise our sales. And, we have a 4200+ email database of our loyal customers and private buyers who like to be informed of area estate sales on a regular basis. This is good for us...and GREAT FOR YOU.
As part of our service, we will take complimentary photographs and place them along with maps and details about your sale on the major estate sales search engines. In addition, your sale is marketed on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ to attract the Social Media crowd. All of this is at NO COST TO YOU.
We believe the combination of attractive staging and comprehensive advertising is the best way to get results!
On sale days we arrive 30 to 60 minutes prior to the opening of the sale to turn on lights, set up the register and cashiers table, hang necessary indoor signs, open curtains and blinds, and place directional road signs.
Once the doors open we attend to our customers, answering questions and facilitating transactions. We will efficiently and effectively manage the flow of traffic into your home by ensuring that only the optimal number of people enter at one time. This number will vary based on the size of the home. It is important to conduct "crowd control" to maintain the safeguarding of the home. In addition, it makes for a much more pleasant shopping experience which just encourages shoppers to spend more time and money!
Very often our clients ask if they should be present at their own sale. Our years of experience have taught us that is better for you and your sale if you are not. These events can bring up mixed emotions and in order to protect yourself, we discourage homeowners or family members from attending. Instead leave the hard work to us, knowing you are in good hands with JPS Estate Liquidation.
We will prepare a full accounting of the results of the sale, along with a check for the net proceeds due to the Sellers, within 2-3 business days following the last day of the estate sale. All rooms and floors will be vacuumed or swept upon completion of the sale.
It is always our hope that EVERYTHING sells and the house is left completely empty..... however if there are items remaining the client may choose to retain them or we can recommend an auction house. Donating is an excellent way to support charitable organizations while simultaneously gaining the additional benefits of tax deductions. We will guide you to ensure you are aware of all of the available options.
Disposal of hazardous materials, paint, television sets, tires, mattresses, large furniture, or refuse unrelated to the sale will be the responsibility of the client unless prior agreement is made.
