Moving? Downsizing?

VIP takes the worry out of your hands when it comes time to move from your home.

Our team of specialists is ready to tackle your estate sale. With over 20 years experience, the VIP staff is knowledgeable and motivated to get you the best results. We will treat you and your belongings with the utmost respect. We are not liquidators, we work for you!

STEP ONE 

Walk-Through with a VIP Consultant

This is a free evaluation at your home to discuss the items to be sold, provide insights into the logistics and address any questions you may have. Then, if you’re ready, we can discuss potential sale dates.

TIP:

Please allow us to assess your estate in its entirity. Don’t dispose of any items prior to our evaluation — we may find valuable items you overlooked!

STEP TWO

Sale Set-up and Preparation

Depending on the size of your estate, this process can range from one to two weeks. Our experienced team will research  items and establish a fair price. We create displays and list with local media to maximize turnout. In addition, VIP has a dedicated customer base who regularly attend our sales!

TIP:

Please be prepared to remove all items that you plan to keep prior to the set-up date.

STEP THREE 

The Estate Sale Weekend

VIP Estate Sales will run a professional event geared to make the sales as profitable as possible for you. Our knowledgeable team will field customer questions  about items in your estate.

TIP:

Please enjoy a getaway for a few days during the sale and let us handle the details. The professional VIP team will adhere to an efficient process for proven successful sales.

 

STEP FOUR

Clean-up / Care of Unsold Items

After the sale is completed, VIP will clear out your house, consult with you on the disposition of unsold items and dispose of garbage. When you return, your home will be empty!

TIP:

Your consultant will contact you regarding unsold items. If you would like to donate to a charity, please just let us know and we’ll make arrangements and get a receipt for your records.

STEP FIVE  

Payment and donation receipts

Payment will be made to you when the sale is complete and all of the accounting is final.

TIP:

Thank you in advance for recommending us to your friends! Our clients are typically so pleased with their results that they become our best resource for referrals.

What VIP Clients Say

They were organized and professional.  They explained the procedure and answered all my questions.  They came into my home to stage all the furniture and price all items.  I was so pleased not to be involved and trusted them to do it all.  It was hard to let go of years of treasured items I could not take with me.  They made it easier.  I would recommend when it is your time to downsize.

Mary Evey

Recently, my husband and I sold our home and wanted to “shed” several household items that we had accumulated over the years. I reached out to Pati, Mike and Sally and they were terrific! Moving is can be so stressful especially when deciding what to keep and what to part with. Essentially, I was told, take what you want and we’ll handle the rest and they did just that! I was so impressed with how they went through my home, organized, priced and displayed all of the items that I left behind. They spent hours making sure that everything was just right. When the sale was over, any items left were donated to a charity of my choice. My home was left completely empty and it was so easy! As an added bonus, I made some money on things I most likely would have just either thrown or given away. I highly recommend them!

Jodi Harland

As a long-time Realtor, often times I assist adult children with the sale of their parents’ home.   Years worth of furniture, household items, clothing, etc. may have to be disposed of prior to the home being sold.    That said, during my initial meeting with the family, if an estate sale is required prior to the home being sold, I ALWAYS recommend VIP Estate Sales to my clients.  The VIP Estate Sales team is organized, reliable, conscientious, personable AND they have an enormous number of contacts!   Items are sold in a timely manner, which in turn allows for the home to be marketed quickly!
