The entire process varies from house to house, this is based on home size, amount of contents, and any extra cleanout service needed. After we first walk through the estate or are contacted by your attorney or executor we will ask to negotiate the contract within 7 days.
After the contract is signed the sale will be scheduled, usually within 1-2 weeks after that(Unless you/we specify otherwise. The sale will run anywhere from 1-2 days (sales run on the weekend typically Friday & Saturday). depending on the amount of contents. After the sale the please allow up to 2-3 weeks before you get your check and all the sale inventory list. This allows time for all checks to clear and be funded at the bank.
