Life transitions involve property transitions. This site provides listings for businesses that can help with both packing and moving, as well as estate estate auctions.
Packing & Moving. Property transition firms often facilitate the packing, moving, cleaning and selling of the house. They should be bonded and fully insure contents during transit. Request references.
Estate Auctions. An estate sale or auction brings cash into the estate in order to pay debts. It also disposes of unwanted personal property. The sale of assets may be mandated by a Will, ordered by the probate court if the estate is insolvent, or necessary when a property owner moves into an assisted living facility or nursing home and is unable to care for the property. Estate sale liquidators facilitate the advertising, labor, refreshments, and security necessary to conduct a successful estate sale. They should have extensive knowledge and experience in pricing household goods and personal property as well as loyal dealers, buyers, collectors, and a good public reputation. Their fee is usually based upon a percentage of revenue.
