MODENA ESTATE SALES
Our Services And Fees What Do They Include?
We are a multi-service estate sale company. Depending on your needs, you may require only an estate sale or a variety of services. We can assist you with those decisions.
Our standard fee is based on commission from the gross proceeds of the sale. Gross proceeds are the money realized from the sale of all personal property before costs of production are paid. Depending on the size of the estate and the scope of work involved gross proceeds may or may not include additional services/fees. Commission is between 40% - 50% and usually covers conducting the sale, organizing, pulling out items, sorting, cleaning select items, professionally displaying and securing items, researching (which may include calling in other professionals or taking items off site for valuation), pricing, marketing, advertising and dealing with the public - which is all very hard work. The percentage of commission is determined after a walk-through of the premises and discussion of your goals for the estate. A walk through/consultation is free of charge and helps us to determine the best option for selling the contents of your estate.
If we are conducting the sale for you, these services may be included in our standard commission fee. However, depending on the scope of the work, a flat rate or an hourly fee, per person will apply.
