An estate sale is a professionally organized event where the belongings, assets, and personal property of an individual or family are offered for sale to the public. Typically conducted in cases of downsizing, moving, or the passing of a homeowner, an estate sale aims to liquidate items such as furniture, household goods, antiques, collectibles, and more. Estate sale companies manage and organize these sales, setting fair prices, and attracting potential buyers to ensure a successful and efficient process. The objective of an estate sale is to maximize the value of the estate's assets while facilitating a smooth transition for the individuals involved.
Having one company handle both the home sale and estate sale can offer several advantages for the homeowner or their family. Here are some of the benefits:
While there are clear advantages to having one company handle both processes, it's essential to choose a reputable and experienced company that has a proven track record in managing both home sales and estate sales. This will ensure that the homeowner receives the best possible service and financial outcomes during this transitional period.

Unfortunately, we cannot setup or conduct an estate sale while someone is living in the home. The main reason is that our insurance coverage does not cover owner-occupied residences, stating “Insured may not conduct a business activity on any property that is currently being dwelled upon as a private residence, boarding house, rooming house, hostel, hotel, motel, motor lodge or motel hotel. Owner occupied residences are considered dwelled upon if the owner or tenant resides therein during any portion of the business activity.'"
