The main reason for an estate sale is the death of a property owner and the need to quickly liquidate the deceased's belongings. Many of our clients who request an estate sale are moving out of state or into independent/assisted living, or simply downsizing from a large home into something more suitable.
We charge a percentage of the total sale proceeds. Our fee is very competitive and varies based upon the services you need (estate sale, online auction, real estate services or a combination of services). Our commission includes everything associated with organizing your sale, as well as ALL advertising; media costs, professional signage in the surrounding area, promoting your sale on social media outlets, setting up the house and pricing, researching your items, sales staff, and cashier.
We do not require any upfront fees and we do not have any hidden charges.
The majority of our clients choose to utilize our estate sale and real estate services because we can handle everything from start to finish. Most live out-of-state and are relieved to know that there is one company taking care of the home and its contents. Combining our services also gives us the flexibility to offer discounts and additional benefits that surpass what other estate sale companies and agents are able to offer.

We understand what you are going through, we've been there, and we know what works.
You will receive the proceeds from the estate sale and/or online auction within 7 days of the conclusion of each event. When selling your home, the proceeds are paid through an Arizona Title/Escrow Company within 3 days of close of escrow.
We advertise extensively on Facebook, Estatesales.net, Estatesales.org, Lythcoop.com, Marketplace, Neighborhood Forums, Craigslist, Pre-Sale Fliers, and our extensive email list.
No. We do not require any money for our services up front. Our work is based on commissions. If the home has extensive trash requiring a dumpster, the cost of the dumpster will be deducted from the overall proceeds.
Yes, we have an estate sale contract that protects you and allows us to conduct an estate sale on behalf of your estate. Real Estate Services shall be defined on a separate binding listing agreement as required by Arizona Revised Statute § 32-2151.02 and the National Association of Realtors.
Small items, such as jewelry, coins etc are placed in a locking display case and kept at the cash register, and removed from the home at the end of each day. During the sale, we use one door for customers to enter/exit and it is staffed throughout the sale.
We are licensed throughout the state, but due to Covid-19 we are limiting our area to locations in Maricopa and Pinal counties.
Getting your house on the open market will net you the most money for your home. However, if your home is in need of major repairs or renovations, or you need to close FAST just let us know, we can get you a quick cash offer. We can have your estate sale, get the home emptied, and SOLD within 15 days.
Ultimately, it's up to you. The majority of homeowners choose to donate the remainder of unsold items to the nearest charity. We have several options depending upon the services that you require and will discuss that in further detail with you prior to signing the estate sale contract.

Lythcoop Estate Liquidators has been in business since 2012. We added real estate services in 2015. We are licensed, insured, bonded, A+ BBB Accredited.
There's no regulatory board that oversees estate sale companies. In fact, we are aware of quite a few companies who don't factor or charge sales tax, which is required in the state of Arizona.
We can help! We pride ourselves in being able to accept estate sales that are needed next week! If we have an availability, we can work with your quick timeline. Estate Sales conducted with short notice oftentimes leave few hours to setup and display, so our main objective with these sales is to get as many photos as possible online and to begin advertising right away so that customers are lined up and ready for your sale on opening day, even if it's not prepped to our usual standards.
You can do as little or as much as you want. We prefer that you remove what you plan on keeping, and we will take care of the rest. We ask that you do not throw anything away, you'd be surprised at what you think it "trash" is actually someone else's "treasure" Our goal is to make you as much money as possible, so please let us decide it's trash or treasure.
Absolutely! We charge 10% for newer vehicles years 2005-2022, and 15% for older vehicles 2004 and older. We assign one staff member to handle interested buyers and deal with the transaction of the vehicle.
The setup and preparation of an estate sale is a large part of its success, so we require homes to be unoccupied of people and pets. We pull and display all items from drawers, closets, kitchen cabinets and transform the home into a sales venue with extra display equipment, tables, racks and lighting. We often need to use available countertops and other available surfaces for display merchandise. We organize, clean, research and price the items, making it unavailable for everyday use. Not having access to pots/pans, closets, drawers and toiletries can make living on the premise during the process impossible.
