The professionals at Avenue Estate Sales will walk you through the entire estate sale process. Keeping our clients and customers well informed and involved throughout the process is key to our success and your satisfaction. Once you've decided that an estate sale is the route for you and your family, it's important that your initial consultation covers all the bases.

Your Free Consultation

The consultation is an opportunity to discuss your estate needs and goals, as well as determine the best approach for you and/or your family's situation. Once we've decided that an estate sale is the appropriate solution, we will move forward with planning the sale.

Property Appraisal and Strategizing

Avenue Estate Sales will determine item values based on current fair market value, in addition to comparable sales and other market research. Your input is also very important, so we will discuss purchase prices, the history of each item, etc. if it assists in determining the best value. Based on these determinations we will designate values and create an itemized inventory report covering all property to be sold. Advertising, sale set-up, sale length, customer parking and customer access will also be covered in this phase.

Staging and Pricing

Avenue Estate Sales's staging experts will design and arrange your personal property (furniture, clothing, etc.) to maximize visibility and profitability. Properly arranging your items is a critical part of the process. Showcasing and creating interest in each piece allows us to get the highest sale price possible. We will transform your location into what will seem like a retail store. Once staged, your property will be priced for sale.

Conducting the Sale

Once properly advertised, staged and priced, Avenue Estate Sales will open the doors to the public. Sales typically operate from 10 am - 4 pm, Friday - Sunday. Sale duration will be discussed during phase one. Both cash and credit cards will be accepted.

Upon entering, all customers will be informed of all sales procedures and policies while shopping, as well as being properly instructed as to what items are available for sale and which areas of your location are private and closed off. All of your property will be monitored and safely secured by our staff during the sale as to prevent theft or any other misconduct. Avenue Estate Sales' staff will be easily recognizable by uniform and name badge - making them identifiable by our customers. In addition, there will be a salesperson designated to every area of your location. Every team member has retail experience and knows that profitability is job number one in maximizing our clients' satisfaction.

Can I have an estate sale during the winter months?

YES! Here's why! There's less competition. The winter months are typically slower in Michigan for estate sales due to weather. However, customers don't stop shopping, in fact, they shop more! November, December, January and February are some of the busiest shopping months of the year. There's holiday shopping, an abundance of shoppers and better buyers. Have your sale during the winter and take advantage of these facts!
