Frequently Asked Estate Sale Questions

Having an Estate Sale can be a very stressful, overwhelming, and time-consuming event.  To help you understand the process we have compiled a list of frequently asked question from clients.  We are always happy to answer questions, please contact us at 317-762-2244 or info@frazierestatesales.com.

The first step is to call Frazier’s at 317-762-2244 or you can email us at info@frazierestatesales.com  We will schedule your free consultation and discuss your unique situation.

It normally takes, at a minimum, 2 weeks to properly prepare for a successful sale.  We need time to set up the sale, tag the sale, bar code the items, and advertise the sale.    Calling early ensures that we have ample time to properly prepare with an eye toward producing the best return possible.

NOTHING, your consultation is absolutely free.

We will assess your situation and determine if an estate sale is the right course of action and go over the sales contract and determine the perfect date for the sale.

There are no upfront or out of pocket expenses to you at all. We charge a percentage of total sales as our commission and deduct that from the total at the end of the sale. We pay for set up,staging ,tagging, pricing, advertising, employees and signage. We do it all.

First we will set up our display tables for smalls, re-arrange the furniture to maximize space, go through boxes, drawers, and cabinets and clean items as necessary. We will then separate the sellable from non-sellable items and research all high-value items.   Then we will tag and bar code items to be sold.  Any personal effects found during this process will be saved and given to the Executor of the Estate.

Normally 2 Days   Friday and Saturday. We can extend the sale to Sunday depending on the size and contents of the sale.

NO we want every one of our buying customers to have an equal opportunity to buy the most sought after items.

Every situation is different.  The short answer is yes, we tend to offer slight discounts on the second day of the sale and may increase the discount on the days following.  Our pricing begins slightly under retail value and as we discount the prices be more appealing.  Any discounting after the initial price drop is done in an effort to ensure liquidation of the contents of the home.

We have a no resident policy in place.  This simply means that we ask the owner or the executor of the estate to not attend set-up or be present during the sale.  We need room to work and we understand that this process can be very emotional.

Yes we carry up to 2 Million in Insurance.

Sure!  This is not a problem.  We will work with you via email, fax or registered mail.  If you are working with an attorney or realtor we can work with them as well.

YES, we are a licensed real estate broker also and work with many Realtors.

There are several different options and we are happy to facilitate whatever works best for you.  We can assist in donating it or we can do a clean out for you.

Absolutely nothing.  We do it all for you.

We advertise your sale on multiple estate sale sites as well as our own web site, social media sites, email lists and local newspapers.  We also use lots of signage in high traffic areas.

Within 5 Business days after the conclusion of you sale.  At that time you’ll be provided with totals and a settlement sheet identifying what was sold.
