Welcome to 401 Estate Sales

OUR SERVICES

There may be several reasons you may require an estate sale:  Downsizing  Relocation  Loss of loved one  Divorce  Sale of your home  Financial hardship…

We’ll work with you to develop a liquidation plan that’s tailored to meet the specific requirements of your estate.  This mutually agreed upon liquidation plan will help you realize top dollar for your estate sale.

We’ll organize all items and carry out the sale of your estate from start to finish.  We’ll photograph significant items, take notes and measurements to help us with research and marketing.  Your belongings, especially those that are fragile and valuable, will be handled with our utmost care.  We especially encourage you to have family members remove all items they want to keep before entering into contract with us.  Estate sales are normally held in the estate home over a one (1) to three (3) day period, so we’ll make a final determination what’s best after we complete an inventory. Everything remaining will be for sale.  Please don’t throw anything away before we inspect it – we sell everything!
