At Lucky Finds Estate Sales, we understand that every situation is unique. Ensuring a successful, stress free and profitable sale means taking the time to listen our client’s needs. Our owner, Brad Gordon is happy to speak with you about our services anytime 770-778-5029 or [email protected]
For your convenience, we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions.
WHAT DO I DO FIRST?
Since no two sales are ever alike and everyone’s situation is different, please call or email to arrange a complimentary consultation.
WHAT IS THE COST TO ME?
There are no upfront charges. The consultation is free. Lucky Finds Estate Sales works on a percentage plus a small minimum which varies depending on the scale and scope of the sale.
SHOULD I CLEAN THE HOUSE UP FIRST?
No! Leave everything as is on the premises. When our owner arrives, he will evaluate your needs and discuss how best to proceed with the sale. You would be surprised what kind of items customers are actually looking for and buy, so please, DO NOT throw away or donate anything before the consultation.
DO YOU SELL ONLY VALUABLE ITEMS?
After over a decade in the resale business, we know that value is in the eye of the buyer. Items from the pantry to the shed outside and everything in between can sell.
DO I HAVE ENOUGH TO SELL?
If you have a good assortment of items that could fill a small house or apartment, then yes.
HOW LONG WOULD MY SALE TAKE AND WHAT DAYS OF THE WEEK WOULD IT BE OFFERED?
Depending on the size of your sale, it could be held Thursday thru Saturday from 10-4, with the potential for an additional day on Sunday.
WHAT IS THE BASIC TIMELINE LEADING UP TO THE DAY OF MY SALE?
Once we meet for your free consultation and agree to have a sale, then the contract is signed. At this time, a date will be agreed upon to conduct a sale. That is all that you need to do!
We typically need 2 to 3 weeks to prepare for your sale. During this time we clear, sort, organize, price, stage and advertise your sale.
WHAT HAPPENS WHILE YOU ARE STAGING THE HOUSE FOR MY SALE AND YOU COME ACROSS ANY TYPE OF VALUABLES OR PERSONAL ITEMS I MIGHT WANT BUT DID NOT KNOW WERE THERE?
After ten years in the business, we have built a reputation of honesty and integrity throughout the community. If we find anything that we believe you may have overlooked, we will put these items aside and notify you so that you can determine whether to keep or sell the items.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO HAVE MY SALE?
Anytime of the year is a great time for a sale! Our loyal customer base love estate sales and are always on the lookout for a sale.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY SALE IS OVER?
After your sale has completed, we will remove all of our items that were used during the sale. We will tidy up any unsold items, broom clean all floors and organize trash. During our consultation, we can discuss options for any unsold items including a clean out service or charity donation. Lastly, we will reconcile the proceeds of the sale and payment in a timely manner. Please note that we are not full service housecleaners.
We hope that we have answered some of your questions. Please contact Brad to discuss how we can work with you and schedule your consultation.
